Best Bar With Heart(s) and Soul: Royal Jelly

Neighborhood bars may not be the first place we would look for skewered chicken hearts, but Royal Jelly isn't your typical neighborhood bar. In addition to that churrasco, served with an electrifying strawberry chimichurri, Royal Jelly expands your pub grub horizons with charred octopus panzanella, sweet potato fettuccine, and merguez sliders. The taps are no slouch either, showcasing local brews that go far beyond the basics. It's no wonder that this charmingly ramshackle drinkery, ahem, gets our blood pumping.

704 W. St. Johns, 512/765-4816, www.royaljellyatx.com
