After tirelessly sampling some of the best cuisine in the area, we’ve compiled a list of our top five places to eat in Austin. Read up and plan your next meal!

The Peached Tortilla

After pounding the pavement as a food truck, the demand for the Southern-Asian fusion of The Peached Tortilla outgrew its settings. The result was a brick-and-mortar establishment with upscale offerings with plenty of character. From traditional Hainan chicken to innovative kimchi arancini balls, the unique dishes at the Peached Tortilla will expand your culinary horizons in a delicious way.


If you want to sample gorgeous French cuisine without the fuss of a fine-dining atmosphere, the casual setting of the Hopfields gastropub is just what you need. Comfort foods like burgers get a hearty dose of rich camembert cheese, and ratatouille receives a twist with a splash of sour beer. And if you visit on the weekends, try a duck reuben or croque madame!

Hoover’s Cooking

Sometimes you just need a plate of good, old-fashioned comfort food to really satisfy your appetite. Hoover’s Cooking is one of the best stops in the area where you can enjoy Southern classics like fried catfish and chicken fried steak. Hoover’s also takes you on a tour of flavors with Jamaican Jerk ribs and New Orleans Muffuletta. Save room for banana pudding or pie!

Barley Swine

For a true Austin foodie experience, Barley Swine is one-of-a-kind. The menu is ever-changing, created from local ingredients at the peak of their season. That means you never know what treasures you’ll find on the menu! Whether you discover a perfectly fried duck leg or a brilliant beet panzanella, Barley Swine is a culinary adventure that you won’t forget!

Franklin Barbecue

Franklin Barbecue isn’t just one of the best restaurants in Austin, it’s an absolute paradise for barbecue fans. In fact, this Austin institution has gained attention from leading food critics and even the James Beard Foundation! The lines might be long, but the low and slow brisket is worth any wait.
