24 Diner

This is Old West Austin's 24-hour hot spot, but it ain't no greasy spoon. In the big, noisy space, chef Drew Curren offers hearty, well-prepared diner-esque fare like burgers, milkshakes, waffles, and hash, but there's an entire gluten-free menu, and local sourcing is impressive. Breads are courtesy of Easy Tiger Bake Shop, another restaurant from this team. – MM Pack
