About Contigo Austin
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 Austin Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
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!
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.
Due to SXSW craziness, I had to change my reservation at Contigo 3 times. Each time, and when I finally arrived, the host couldn't have been more understanding and friendly about the whole situation. I've been to Contigo just twice but it's marching up my lust of favorites, due to the great patio seating, the tasty food and drink - and now, the fantastic service.
Great hangout spot with fun relaxed ambience. But the food ranged from average to excellent and was not as standout as I was expecting. Green beans were a nice start but the crispy brussels were soft and a very small portion for $12 as was the cauliflower and both were just ok. Tartare was accompanied by a strange hardened egg yolk spread and some limp pieces of arugula. Dessert, especially the lavender ice cream, was incredible. But any inconsistencies in the food were made up for by an incredible server who made the night and absolute pleasure. I'd go back for drinks and snacks but not for dinner.
We were able to secure a reservation for brunch. We each ordered a different dish and everyone enjoyed their meal. I was particularly pleased with the beef tongue hash. Our table had been inside but since the day was beautiful we traded if for an outside table. There was ample parking and the hostess greeted us from her station just off the parking lot. We will be back.
Great belated Valentine's Dinner. Good vegetarian options for me and carnivore choices for husband. Tasty cocktails and great service and loved sitting outside at sunset. Little touches like fresh flowers in bathroom make this place first rate, but relaxed and casual at same time.
I've been to Contigo for both brunch and dinner, both were fantastic. I love the indoor/outdoor dining experience with the twinkle lights and trees. It has a great ambiance and great food. The service is always wonderful. Craft cocktails are good, as is their wine list.
