Now it’s time for the quarterly update of the Eater 38, the answer to any question that begins, "Can you recommend a restaurant...?" This highly-elite group covers the entire city, spans myriad cuisines and budgets, and collectively satisfies all of everyone’s restaurant needs, from taco trucks to fine dining spots. Reminder: restaurants must be open for at least six months to qualify for the list.
The fall update welcomes the following to the Eater 38: South Austin spicy Chinese restaurant Sichuan River and Jewish bagel and sandwich spot Biderman’s Deli. Leaving the map this season are meat-loving shop Noble Sandwich Co., North Austin's Szechuan House, and downtown mainstay Second Bar + Kitchen. Pay respects to the running list of retirees over at the Eater 38 archive.

Note: While the list is numbered, there is no particular order or ranking. Restaurants are listed geographically, from north to south, east to west.Read More
