School House Pub
2207 Manor Rd., 512/469-7630
Walking the line between kitschy and nostalgic, this old house plays host with a draft list heavy on dark malts. The options in bottles, bombers, and cans make up the difference.
New neighborhood hot spots

At Southern Heights Brewery.
6014 Techni Center Dr., 281/660-4109
Everything from Chef Jesse Griffiths' unassuming hotspot is local, even the tea. Expect the choicest cuts of meat, just out of the water seafood, and barely harvested vegetables. The service is as adept as the kitchen.
2406 Manor Rd., 512/524-0688
Austin's Hamburger King, Dan Junk, may be known for his trademark fresh burgers and friendly service, but the weekend breakfast is the real draw.
