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.

My husband and I visited Contigo on Friday night for an early dinner and it did not disappoint. Food, drinks and service was all amazing. The atmosphere is what you want it to be, relaxed and romantic. We Loved it!

One of the best places for patio/outdoor dining in Austin…plus one of the best burgers! Come for happy hour and enjoy a frozen guava margarita and crispy green beans.

Amazing setup and ambiance. Good value on prices, but the food just wasn’t that great. Some of our meals were tasty but others were either over spiced or sort of mushy. Felt like there wasn’t enough variation on the menu.

Love Contigo! We had a large-ish group for a going-away dinner party, and some folks were coming/going during the meal. Our server was extremely attentive and accommodating -- bringing food/drinks as ready, and always available for more orders. It is not my norm -- usually we are all seated together, order at once, etc., so I know she was doing extra work to accommodate -- and it was much appreciated. All the food was perfect -- tasty, plentiful, colorful -- really nice. We love this place - they have a great outdoor setup, umbrellas to block the sun, and consistently kind servers and staff!

Food and cocktails were good, but our server was unprofessional. Maybe they were having a bad night and it was a fluke, but I don't think I would plan another event here.

Other than not being upfront about the up charge on a side salad and gluten free bun, it was a great experience.
Loved our server!

Great cocktails and fresh seasonal food options. Service overall good but lag time between drink/app ordering and meal ordering as well as wait after meal to get check was longer than we typically experience

our waitress was wonderful, food was very good and portions just right. i was also impressed by how comfortably the tables were spaced. Clean, relaxed, friendly - this was my first time here but definitely won’t be my last! Try the green beans, I was skeptical but they’re a great appetizer.

Great spot for outdoor dining (indoors was v nice as well) but they’re really equipped for outdoors. The GM Kendra was responsive and helpful for our birthday group. The service was attentive and accommodating for our party. We’ll be back!

Our server was awesome, and accommodating when our party had a staggered arrival.

The environment here is always wonderful- and, even in Texas in August, the covered outdoor area was comfortable. For current safety concerns, this is also one of the best outdoor dining scenarios in Austin. Food is always great- ceviche was just meh this time, but the rest of the plates were incredible. Raves about the cheesy mushroom appetizer!

The service, food, and drinks were excellent! You might have to shoo the gnats away occasionally but it’s outdoor seating so that’s understandable. We will be back!

Best place to visit in the neighborhood or take friends and family. The cheese curds, green beans, and charred avocado are our favorite appetizers and enjoyed the pork belly when it was on the menu.

Last night we had the s'mores ice cream and cookie for the first time - both fantastic.

The atmosphere was very nice. The service was excellent. I had the the Tri beef plate. The beef was not as tender as commented however; the veggies were good. The fried green beans were excellent! Wish I had ordered two orders instead of the hummus appetizer. The hamburgers were delicious. The drinks were fantastic!

Waiter was great! Helpful but not intrusive. Gave good recommendations.
The place has a relaxed vibe and was already busy at 5pm.
Enjoyed the food. Okra was nicely cooked in a red vine vinegar base.
Husband enjoyed his burger.
Mussels were served in a tasty tomatoey? sauce with fries, which I prefer to bread, so that was a further plus.

We would have stayed longer but it was too hot, so we’ll be back in a few weeks when it’s cooler.
Would definitely recommend.

Had a wonderful first experience!

I had this place on my list forever and decided to have a nice date night out, the weather was perfect for it too.

The food was amazing, we wanted to take our time and enjoy our night and ordered staggered, and we never felt rushed to order. We started with the ceviche and fried green beans. The ceviche was perfect, I loved the larger chunks of fish and the sauce was so tasty. The green beans are extremely addictive, with a huge portion size, definitely recommend both of these.

For dinner my husband had the Contigo burger that was cooked perfectly and I had the achicote chicken- hit the spot! So freaking good and also a good portion size.

The whole night was so awesome, we'll definitely be back!

My only complaint, which was not the restaurants fault...they're dog friendly ...which I love because my dogs are my children and will bring them next time but this night a bunch of people brought dogs that were a bit naughty and barked a bunch...so if you bring your dog please be mindful of others because that part felt a little distracting when you're trying to have a nice date night. I hope others can be more thoughtful and not ruin the pets allowed policy for others!

A++
y'all won't be disappointed in the food and service!

I got the mussels and fries - loved it! My boyfriend got the smash burger and couldn’t finish it because it was so salty. We let the server know and they were kind enough to comp his meal. All our drinks were wonderful, even the house red (a Sangiovese) was delightful!
