Iron Works BBQ has one of the most welcoming laid-back patios in Austin and has been a favorite since 1978. Whether it’s in the back or on top of the roof, it feels like home with the picnic tables laden with gingham tablecloths. The food? In a city which is receiving national attention for its BBQ, their Ribs and Sausage can compete against the best and have set the standard for true Texas Barbecue for decades.
Rainey Street is one of the coolest areas of Austin to hang out for a long lasting evening of live music, eats and drinks. A favorite among college students late at night, the street is filled with different forms of bars, food trucks, a hotel and restaurants. It doesn’t matter what you’re looking for in a foodie adventure, you’ll find it here, and it’s just a quarter mile down the street from Iron Works.
