The only thing more stressful than inching down I-35 or Mopac during rush hour (which seems to be every hour) is trying to find parking in Austin. To save time and hassle, Eater has put together a map of the best restaurants with free and plentiful parking.
Rather than circling the block or risking the boot and hefty fines while hungry for breakfast, lunch, or dinner, mark these restaurants with parking lots, complimentary valets, and free access to parking garages with validation. There are even special deals, such as gratis pickups for Jeffrey's.
For the purposes of this map, Eater focused on areas where parking isn't so easy to find: downtown, Clarksville, East Austin, and South Austin's South Congress, South Lamar, and South First.
Looking for wider neighborhood dining options? Check out Eater's guides to downtown Austin and South Congress, as well as lunch-specific maps for downtown and East Side.
Is there an area with great parking options missing below? Let Eater know through the tipline, comments, or over on the forum.Read More
