Didn't eat, just did a Memory Tour for my husband who used to have lunch here with Willy Nelson oh so many years ago when he was a student and worked in the area. He insists it's added on but otherwise looks almost just as it did 35 years ago, so nice to see some things don't change too much.... More

After tipping an amount that recieved a thank you and being courteous enough to pay an unneccesary erroneous 2nd cover charge outside... I was lucky enough to be verbally assaulted and chastised with profanity until physically threatened, forced to leave, luckily managing to charm my way into getting my card back to close my tab prior to guys trying to...

Order the first 4 items on their menu for an amazing feast! The beets and chicken are taste sensations! I tried this during SX from their trailer in East Austin but the restaurant behind Hole in the Wall on the Drag (Guadalupe) is an excellent (building) location.

It's definitely a hole in the wall, but in a good way. I had Thai Chicken Kara-age and I really don't eat rice, but I downed it all covered in some sriracha!! Amazingly good with cilantro, basil and onions. You've gotta try this!

We were on a spring break quest for the perfect dive bar in Austin, and after three days and two visits here we think we've found it. We went Tuesday at mid-day, and we were the only drinkers there. Most of the patrons were there eating lunch at the adjacent East Side Kings. There are picnic tables outside for both... More

Best Austin bar ever. Spending time at the Hole in the Wall is like being in a big, friendly and..well, alcoholic and good-music-addicted family. The place is very big, has two stages for your daily portion of good live music, and an open backyard with also a juke box and a pool table. The people working here are the coolest... More
