Bacon? Has to be good!

A restaurant named Bacon? We had to try it and it proved worthy of it's name. Real good food at a good price. I had a sandwiched packed with meat (and bacon, of course) and a beer for less than $20.

My daughters and I went to Bacon after our PubCrawler adventure. Breakfast is served all day and they have great burgers and other food. The bacon is smoked right at the restaurant is is so delicious. We had a great time.

Oh my goodness. What can I say? Do you love bacon? Really love bacon? Then this is a don't-miss stop! Our kids took us here for breakfast one day while we were visiting. "You HAVE to try this place. It is amazing!" they said. They were right. First off, we got there and had to park down the street. Then... More

I heard about this place so looked up when in Austin.... Glad I did. The Bacon was very good and the portion size was very large. I would recommend to anyone looking for a small out of the way place. I will come back when in town.

Bacon is a must try for anyone in Austin. Set near downtown it offers a lot. I tried the chicken and bacon waffle and was not disappointed! The chicken was fried to perfection and the waffle was huge and cooked just right, plenty of bacon too cooked right into the waffle. Can't wait to go back to try their other... More

Bacon is the quintessential Austin experience from the Bacon-centric menu to the little house in which it is located (used to be Basil's which I miss dearly) to the laid back customers and good natured folks who work there. My personal favorite menu item is the BLT with a fried egg cooked to perfection. Yum! After a Saturday run around... More

This was my first visit to Bacon. It's in what used to be a house, but it makes for a neat homey feel. There is outdoor seating alongside a creek with plenty of shade trees. You order at the counter, get your own drink, then have a seat and wait until your food is brought to your table. I ordered... More

If you love bacon, you will LOVE this place. It is very small and you have to order and pay before you sit down therefore there will sometimes seem to be a long line but it's because the place is so tiny inside. The prices are great for the huge portions you get. I ordered the bacon waffle with a... More

Good breakfast after a night of having a few. The menu is right on the wall as you walk in. Order, they give you a number, you sit down and before you can begin enjoying your coffee they have your food at the table. Hot and fresh and wonderful. I had eggs, bacon, french fries and a giant biscuit. The... More

Enjoyed our visit to Bacon as we'd seen rave reviews on the Travel Channel and Food network. Living in the 'burbs doesn't bring us downtown much but a day at the museums and this place brought Austin downtown food and fun together. The food is good. You can definitely tell the bacon is in house made and sliced. The thickness... More
