This South Austin bar is everything Austin’s laid-back culture should be: an unassuming dive bar with gruff locals, black T-shirts and tattoos galore, pool tables and horseshoes on the spacious dog-friendly patio with cheap drinks, and unpretentious bar food that doesn’t sacrifice on flavor. It’s the latter that earns it a spot on this list. All dive bars should serve up grilled Caesars.
