Austin’s Eater 38 aims to provide a restaurant recommendation for any situation. This list covers the entire city, spanning numerous cuisines and budgets, and collectively satisfies every restaurant needs, from taco trucks to finer dining spots. These are the restaurants and food trucks that all truly define Austin.
Every quarter, Eater Austin adds pertinent restaurants that make the cut, whether they have become newly eligible (open for at least six months) or revamped their menu or services, and aims to keep the list inclusive and reflective of the Texas city. This summer 2022 update adds Usta Kababagy, Birdie’s, and Canje. This round also means we’re saying farewell to La Tunita 512, Buenos Aires, and Emmer & Rye.
As with all businesses, be sure to call ahead to make sure each restaurant/truck is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Wear a mask, tip well, and if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the restaurants/trucks themselves.
