Once again on our annual pilgrimage to Austin had to stop off at Patsy Café, before flying back to Long beach. Nothing had changed in this cowgirl bar, ordered the same Fried Steak with Cracked Pepper Gravy and mashed potatoes, food was still good But also this time tried pecan chicken and a tortilla soup bowl, both a pleasant surprise....

I was pleasantly surprised at my lunch outing. I only had a salad but it was massive and delicious. Only wished I had room leftover for dessert.

This place is great. Good food and great service. Helps to get there early because it gets packed on the lunch hour.

We had to be Austin for surgery and found this place down the road from Our hotel. The atmosphere was inviting and the live music was Western swing, I think. Very good. The Sandra Bullock sandwich with onion rings was really tasty and a lot of food.

This was a fun place to eat. The food is named after famous Austin people. Great burgers. Delicious chicken fried steak. Fabulous salmon. Yummy veggies. Great staff. Live band on a Wednesday nite. The back room was a little dark but the food was great!

Went here on a night they were having the live band perform. It was a fun atmosphere. I ordered the pot roast, which was amazingly tender. The mashed potatoes were yummy as well. Prices were reasonable as well.

We had lunch here with 2 of our nephews and a niece on the way to visit their parents in Liberty Hill. We had a great time visiting, but the service and the food was so-so. 3 of us had the special, fried fish with 2 sides. The fried fish wasn't like any we had ever had in Texas. Not... More

Went there for just a business lunch and what a visual treat and ambience it was! Being a vegetarian I was wondering what I am going to find here. Great soup with a roll and some breaded okra was my selection. I was not disappointed at all. The ambience and the folks there made it up all for me. I'm... More
