While the ABGB remains a favorite South Austin pizza and pint hangout, with a large outdoor patio and rotation of on-premise signature brews, its inside stage has become a regular stop for local bands since opening in 2013. Its 270-person inside and laid-back, shared-table vibe provides excellent sound, generous floor space in front of the stage, and a casual, family-friendly atmosphere that can accommodate both fans of the bands or just the beer. The parking lot fills quickly.
This is the best people-watching spot in the 78704 ZIP code. The usual coffees and lattes, as well as a selection of baked goods, provide context for the best fried pies in town.
Dependably good sub sandwiches from this local chain. Standard fare for the college student: inexpensive and tasty.
Copious beers and westernized Indian food to keep your bellies bumpin’ alongside the regular live music shows.
