Taking inspiration from the traditional Sunday night barbeque Texans so dearly love, Austin Daily Press’s outside restaurant is sure to bring a sense of community and nostalgia while you chow down on humble, home cooked meals. With an outdoor stage, it brings the vibrancy of delicious food and talented local artists, conveniently, alongside enjoying delicious, savory meats paired with a tangy punch. Although the restaurant does serve online orders, the experience of participating in the Austin community makes going to its restaurant a far richer experience.

5. Lucky’s Puccias

With food so tasty, you won’t mind getting a bit messy,  Lucky’s brings authentic Italian wood-fired sandwiches, known as puccias, in the middle of downtown Austin. As it grew in popularity, people all over the country took interest in the quaint little trailer, now restaurant, that made a generations-old cooking technique convenient for everyone to enjoy. With hot pastrami paired with four Italian cheeses to house-made porketta, the sandwiches encompass authentic Italian cuisine between two little buns.

Wherever you decide to go to eat, be sure to make the most of the extensive menu Austin has to offer.
