The concept is pretty simple. Since we can’t have everyone down to the ranch, we wanted to do our best to bring the ranch to them.

We like to sit outside. We like to drink beer... and cocktails. We like to eat good food. We like relaxed atmospheres with friendly service and warm hospitality. So... that is what we strive to offer at Contigo Austin.

We describe our fare as "Fresh, Quality, Bar Food." We make things that we like to eat. We make things that go well with beer. We make bar food utilizing the freshest ingredients we can find.

We have been entertaining people at Contigo Ranch for over 30 years. It is the countless hunting trips, weekend retreats, cattle roundups, barbecues, parties, and pachangas that serve as inspiration for this restaurant. Our goal is to offer the community a place to relax, commune, and enjoy great food.

We hope you will join us.

Contigo did not have my reservation through OpenTable because they no longer use the service.

We had an excellent meal. Three of us shared small plates and an order of the rabbit dumplings. The drinks were delicious, the atmosphere was friendly, and our server was great!

Food was okay, but limited food options. Great patio!

Food was great, drinks were great, but our waiter was horrible. Our guys that were bringing us water and our food were fantastic. I wished I could have only tipped those humans.

I would have liked to have ordered more drinks, but after taking our order for food, our waiter failed to stop by our table again, and generally looked the other way when he walked by the table.

We tried to make ourselves feel better by making up a story that his boyfriend just broke up with him and that is why we saw him on his phone all of the the time. He had to be so distraught that all of his things would be left at the curb at their apartment. I know I would. Although making up his story helped, it was still really frustrating coming to a place with the expectation of having drinks with friends, and getting served drinks one time. In retrospect, I should have just gone up to the bar and ordered our drinks for the table. At least then the bartenders would have been tipped instead of our horrible waiter.

We had a great time. The food was good. There were several vegetarian sides and salads but nothing on the entree menu except a slightly boring grilled cheese sandwich. The staff was very friendly and both my kids and my parents were happy with everything.

Food was good but the service was slow and inattentive at best.

Cool place. All open air. Appetizers and burgers were great. Drinks also hit the spot, and they had a nice $2 drafts happy hour. I'd go again.

One of the best burgers in Austin. Fried green beans are pretty good, too.

I waited too long to come here. Won't wait so long to return. It was all incredibly good and the service was stellar.

Party of 8, including two elderly guests, seated in the sun outside. Reservations were made 3+ weeks in advance. While we were sweating it out in the sun...under umbrellas that covered maybe 1/3 of our table...there was an unused table for 8 in the covered area with ceiling fans, etc.

We had to ask repeatedly for more water and the staff seemed irked that we would bother them with such a request.

Food was very good, but not enough to overcome the overall bad experience.

Too bad...I thought I had found a cool, new spot, but they have a lot of work to do to learn how to take care of their customers.

Sat down for mothers day. Server told me twice she would take our drinks. Table next to me arrived after me and got their drinks before me.

My daughters orange juice didn't come with our drinks. Had to ask again.

Eggs Benedict was blah. Nothing special.

Maybe it's good for a beer but not for a meal.

Enjoyed our meal very much. A bit loud and a windy evening in an covered outdoor venue, so kind of hard to hear dinner conversation. Food is very good though and overall we had a nice time and an enjoyable evening.

I have wanted to try Contigo for a while but just kept forgetting about it. So glad I remembered this time and made my way there. Food and service were fantastic, and by the time we left at 7 it was packed. On a Tuesday. Guessing it attracts a lot of Mueller residents, who are lucky to have such a cool place so close by...we will definitely go back soon and often!

So great. Our server was awesome and honest giving us her opinion of what she thought was good and what she wasn't a fan of. Awesome vibe and a great deal

We arrived at 11am. 40 minutes later we still didn't have our drinks. Bottom line opinion on this place is that the food is good but service is awful. We had a party of 8 (6 adults and 2 kids). The server added 20% automatically which I also found a little presumptuous based on our experience. We won't likely be back.

I would not recommend it for an Easter brunch. The eggs benedict were far from the quaility I would make at home. the tongue hash was good although
