Restaurants in Austin, TX

Any appetite can find what it wants in Texas’ capital city. The lively food scene ranges from Japanese food trucks and kolaches to craft beer and a sunset dinner overlooking Lake Travis. Austin is especially well-endowed with Mexican food (Fonda San Miguel is the classic) and is known for BBQ so good that people actually stand in line for hours just to get some (that would be at Franklin’s). There’s plenty of alternative fare, too, such as health food at High Note or a Hippie Sandwich at Shady Grove. If you like donuts, a short trip north to Round Rock Donuts is essential. And just beyond Round Rock is the town of Taylor, home of Louis Mueller Barbecue, which many consider the best on earth.
