Although I didn’t start this blog to become a restaurant critic, I do like sharing my list of favorite restaurants to check out if you’re visiting Austin. If a restaurant has made this list, it either offers a really cool experience or will offer you some of the best food in Austin. I encourage you to visit Yelp and read other’s reviews for these restaurants. From gourmet food trailers to nationally renowned chefs, Austin definitely has one of the best food scenes in the country. So choose a few restaurants for your trip and check them out!
Franklin BBQ – Try their brisket and pulled pork! Try to get there before 11:45, if not earlier.
Stubb’s – Awesome gospel brunch! Make your reservations early.
County Line on the Lake – Nice ride through the Hill Country and restaurant sits on river.
Salt Lick – Long drive, but they spend a lot of time cooking their meats. No real side dishes.
Fonda San Miguel
Mandola’s Italian Market
Eddie V’s on 5th St. – Sit in the Lounge and listen to the jazz trio! Full dining experience.
