Birdie’s is one of those restaurants, where I know it will be long standing, and an Austin favorite forever. It’s family owned, counter service…and it’s casual, laid back vibe with James Beard (yes…they were nominated!) award winning food.  The menu is constantly changing and they base their entrees on what is in season.  I originally started this blog to honor the chefs, the teams and the farmers behind the food.  This restaurant is exactly what I love…they are like minded…and mind blowing. Enjoy!

TIP:  It’s first come, first serve. Open for dinner Tues-Sat.
