Ralph Gilmore is an example of why Austin has such a cool vibe.  Ralph originally started as the Turf ‘N’ Surf trailer  made of 90% recyclables and makes a point to personally say hello to every customer.  They have fresh fish daily specials, served in hearty portions which can be grilled, blackened or fried as a po-boy, taco or salad.  Try the grilled tuna tacos and sweet potato fries. 

Tip: Serves lunch or dinner. Located within Lavaca St bar or outside window ordering available too. Second location at The Picnic on Barton Springs. More locations listed here.

After ordering from Turf ‘N’ Surf, grab your favorite beverage at the bar and enjoy a chillaxed environment at the Lavaca Street Bar.  Many of the staff are locals, such as Jess, an assistant manager born and raised in Austin.  They make you feel right at home as you enjoy watching sports on many of the TVs, and playing games such as Pool, Skeeball, Shuffleboard and a lifesized Connect 4.

Tip: Check out their website for the daily specials, including $2 Mimosas on Sunday. Reservations available online. Check out additional locations online.
