Phil's Icehouse

Take a trip back to the Wild West at this kid- (and beer-) friendly Austin favorite. Sidle up to the trough, and relax with a delicious burger and ice-cold beer as your li'l cowpokes horse around like Wild Bill, Calamity Jane, or Deputy Dawg, and romp atop the colorful cattle in the playground corral. This family gem is the perfect excuse to steer clear of the big fast-food chains; keep it local, pardner, Phil's has Amy’s ice cream! Also, teach your buckaroos an essential Texas lesson early on: Cows ain't for tippin', your server is.
