Jacoby's Restaurant & Mercantile

3235 E. Cesar Chavez, 512/366-5808
This latest Eastside foodery has freshened up an old concept – the ranch restaurant. Cocktails are served at the glam ranch bar. The chicken-fried steak is tender and well-flavored, the breading is light and crisp, and most importantly, the cream gravy is made from real pan drippings and not from a mix.
