At this welcome South Austin branch of the venerable neighborhood institution, the coziness of the original is replaced with a sleek sensibility. The menu is identical, however, including the legendary fries.
This elegantly casual interior, rich with reclaimed wood, earth tones, and natural light, has a separate lounge and bar area. Locally-sourced dishes make this a South Austin delight.
