Middle EasternCampusUnder $10

A Drag staple since the Seventies, first as a foot cart, then as a homey, hippie Lebanese restaurant, Tom’s Tabooley centerpieces a block of historic businesses with Antone’s Records and Centennial Liquors flanking it on either side. The restaurant’s status as a community space doubled in 2011, when it annexed neighboring fashion/music shop Sonny’s Vintage, which included a proper stage. Now aN all-ages concert space, Tom’s Tabooley hosts folk music, Americana, blues, open mics, and more in its spacious, seated lounge. Recently, they began serving beer, pairing well with their “best fries in Austin.”

Mediterranean, Middle EasternNorth$10-$25

Put yourself in the hands of an expert at the counter, and be guided through this menu. Composed of stews, salads, and kebabs, it is small enough that it takes only a few trips to sample its entirety. All meals come with hot tea and whatever dessert the kitchen whips up that day. These tend to be sticky and pudding-ish, but usually round out the meal in a pleasant fashion.
