Austin is 182 years old, and in that time, certain dishes have stood out amongst the fray as the best, most delicious representations of the city. To help figure out those must-eat meals, Eater put together a handy guide to Austin's most iconic dishes.
The city’s defining dishes range from a mix of old and new. There are the classic pancakes at Kerbey Lane Cafe, migas plates from Cisco’s, Franklin Barbecue’s world-famous briskets, tacos galore, and much more. This update includes the Monster Cookie from Henbit and barbecue klobásníky from Kerlin BBQ.
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.
