Enjoy the reliably delicious meat or veggie burgers and great seasoned fries with any of the reasonably priced beers on tap.
Cafe and lounge located on the north side of the lower lobby in the AT&T Hotel and Conference Center on the University of Texas campus.
One of Austin’s oldest venues, the Hole in the Wall opened in 1974 and enjoyed an early run as a folkie hangout, serving as a favorite stage for Townes Van Zandt, Nanci Griffith, and Blaze Foley. The campus-area staple later became a breeding ground for punk, cosmic country, and alternative, launching the careers of Timbuk3, Fastball, Spoon, and Shakey Graves. Forty years on, the historic two-stage dive, with a collective capacity of a couple hundred, still features live music every night and serves as an important proving ground for new bands. Always a shoestring effort, the Hole briefly shuttered in 2002 and came dangerously close to being priced out in 2015.
With 28 beers on tap and more than 60 by the bottle, you'll need the burgers and nachos to stay upright.
When you're craving good wings in the middle of the game, stop by for plenty of TVs and great queso, too.
This restaurant provides beer and burgers for the pre-, post-, and during-the-game crowds, with an in-house ATM for those who fit into all three categories. Try the Sheriff's Sandwich while you check out six flat-screens.
