Discover Downtown

Austin offers the best of all worlds. Creatives love its vibrant arts scene and tolerant vibe. Entrepreneurs appreciate its tech-heavy graduate pool from the University of Texas at Austin and other local schools. Those looking for savory food options are just as happy with what the Texas capital city has to offer. A diverse range of international, fusion, and standard American fare satisfies every appetite. But the city is especially well-known for its variety of breakfast tacos, known as migas tacos. As part of the Texas Barbecue Belt, Austin is home to a mind-boggling number of BBQ joints. The city's Central Texas barbecue style, influenced by the European immigrants who settled here, involves show-stopping portions of pecan- or oak-smoked ribs and brisket.
