This was one of the best experiences I’ve had in terms of fine dining with vegetarian and vegan needs. The staff was very accommodating with one of our parties needs for gluten-free options as well. Each dish that came out was delicious, beautifully presented, and exceptionally thoughtful. Highly recommend and definitely worth the price.

About the restaurant
The name really says it all. With 202 beer taps and over 20 house-made sausages we have one of the largest selections in the country. We are equally committed to quality, serving up the most delicious sausages we can make and the best craft beers we can source. In addition to beer and sausage we also operate an onsite smokehouse with a variety of offerings centered on slow smoking and open fire cooking.

At the end of the day, Banger's is all about being a wonderful place to eat, drink and hangout. Not too rowdy, not too laid back, just a good old fashioned good time.

Large parties over 10 on 1 ticket was not good. I understood holding a card upfront but in the end if we want to split up, it should be allowed.

De Nada Cantina. Tacos y margs y menos.

East Austin’s loveliest little taco spot. Handmade tortillas pressed and cooked on the comal, slow-braised meats, and traditional handcrafted margaritas served in a greenhouse.

About the restaurant
Blue Sushi Sake Grill unites creative ingredients with energetic vibes, premium cold sake with happy moments to give you a fresh and fun new way to experience sushi. Our sushi and grill menus allow you to explore your sushi favorites in new and unexpected ways. We like to say that sushi is for sharing, and our menu encourages it. Order a spread of all your maki, nigiri and sashimi favs from the sushi bar, and throw in a few orders of starters from the grill. We'll stagger your plates so you can savor it all bite-by-bite, and maximize the sushi experience you've been craving all week. If you're not sure where to start, tour the menu during Happy Hour, where all our guest favorites — from our sushi, grill and drink menus — are available at an amazing value. We offer Happy Hour every day of the week at Blue Sushi Sake Grill!

About the restaurant
Traditional meets modern in this new age Caribbean cuisine restaurant brought you by Chef Tavel Bristol-Joseph of E&R Hospitality Group.

Named after the Canje pheasant, national bird of Guyana, Canje pulls inspiration not just from mainland Guyana, but from Jamaica to Puerto Rico, and all the islands in between. Our menu explores the cooking techniques, ingredients, and many expressions of vibrant food across the region.
