South Austin bar serving locally sourced Southern food.
6507 Circle S Rd., 512/814-0999
We all know them: Locals who think anything outside of South Austin – including Downtown – is the suburbs. That’s where Patsy’s Cowgirl Cafe comes in. Anyone who likes Hyde Park Bar & Grill’s approach to live music but wishes it were a just little more country should stop by. Try the burger and fries, and of course the chicken-fried steak, and enjoy the bluegrass backdrop. Local rockabilly contingent the Therapy Sisters are regulars. Seats 150.
