Hoover's Cooking

2002 Manor Rd., Austin, TX - (512) 479-5006
The choice of meals is wide. Hoover’s has its own smokehouse, perfuming the parking lot outside, from which come pork ribs, Elgin sausage, highly-spiced Jamaican jerk chicken, and lesser-spiced (but nonetheless delicious) regular-spiced barbecue chicken. In addition to the smoked fare, the menu lists chicken fried steak, meat loaf, catfish, and an array of sandwiches that range from a meatless muffaletta (made with a portobello mushroom) to half-pound hamburgers.

Hoover's vegetables are so good that many customers make a meal of them and forgo any
"Hoover's vegetables are so good that many customers make a meal of them and forgo any "main course." Here we have black-eyed peas and macaroni and cheese, mustard greens and fried okra."

Austin is chicken-fried steak country.  Hoover's serves one of the best in town.  Behind the crisp-fried steak are chunky mashed potatoes, a bowl of gravy, and creamed spinach.

A tall, cool one is an essential part of the Hoover's experience.  This pitcher is a single serving!

Hoover's is a simple place with honest food at decent prices.  What's better than that?
