Baker Street Pub & Grill

Pub GrubSouth Lamar and Barton Springs$10-$25

This South Austin iteration of a British-themed pub franchise veers slightly askew of its Northside cousin. Though cover bands dominate the calendar Thursday through Sunday, Baker St. occasionally presents original local bands like Pong, Roxy Roca, and the aptly named South Austin Moonlighters. Parking is dicier here than up north, but the patio doesn’t face a freeway. Otherwise, you get a full bar, 23 beers on tap, and a lengthy menu covering everything from Baja tacos to bangers and mash. Happy hour runs until 9pm and all day Sunday.

Cover 3

Pub Grub, Sports BarMidtown$10-$25

Word got out that the burgers are divine, and soon we discovered a varied and plenty appetizer menu. Our mouths were too full of Parmesan fries to take it all in, but we know the Chicken-Fried Beef Tenderloin takes the sports bar menu to a new respectability. Never fear for thirst – the beer selection here is terrific.

Gourmands

Gastro Pub, Pub GrubLower East$10-$25

East-siders come to play pool, or to flex their cerebral muscle with the Geeks Who Drink pub quiz on Wednesday nights. With a full menu of sandwiches and soup and an encyclopedic beer selection, it definitely feels more like a cozy pub than a destination bar. But people come out raving about the menu: Crisp salads, and a crazy sandwich selection. Power outlets in half of the booths, and an amazing range of beers keep the place busy until closing.

Javelina

Pub GrubDowntown$10-$25

This new place offers both old-world bar goodness vibe, as well as contemporary, crafty cocktails. The proprietary burger is a revelation, but others argue in favor of Javelina Eggs, a version of Scotch eggs.
