What are the best restaurants in Austin, those essential spots that should not be missed? Eater Austin’s Eater 38 aims to show you where to eat across the Texas city, with restaurant recommendations fit for any situation. The list spans numerous cuisines and budgets, and collectively satisfies every need, taco trucks to fine dining spots. These are the 38 restaurants and food trucks that truly define Austin.
