This fusion of Middle Eastern and barbecue features dishes such as Boy Dakar lamb burger, and yassa chicken quesadilla.
The menu is solidly Persian, with an assortment of Mediterranean standards thrown in for the less adventurous. Don't miss the lamb shanks.
The big deli case is full of baklava, fruit, flowers, and marinating lamb and beef. The portions here are enormous, and everything on the menu is made from scratch.
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.”
