This underappreciated gem serves well-prepared, reasonably priced steaks and generous, tasty sides in a casual atmosphere.
A vestige of old Austin circa 1932 and an icon for generations, the Hoffbrau serves up steak, potatoes, and beer in a former feed store.
The casual, noisy atmosphere makes this an appropriate family steak house. The Denny's-esque menu also offers foods other than steaks, most of which have been heavily breaded, fried, and smothered in cheese.
An ample and clean design of copper tones is home to menu items like seared foie gras and crab cakes, pan seared scallops, chili rubbed pork chop, and, oh yeah, perfect aged prime beef.
