Love the Menu

This is one of my favorite places to eat. I love the style of the restaurant and the menu has some great offerings. I Love so many of the dishes. You need to try them all. I pick a different item every time I go.

Met for lunch at this downtown Austin location. We ate in the main dining area, but the bar looks like a great place for Happy Hour. Both of us had a great salad and I look forward to getting back here to enjoy an evening dinner. I would recommend it to one and all. Close to 6th Street, thhe Capitol,... More

We went here on he last night given its convenience. We started with the queso and I had the tenderloin salad. For $14 I felt like I got around 4-5 oz of meat so I felt that was a pretty good price. He ordered the filet which was done perfectly (too many times we are disappointed with medium rare being... More

My husband and I have eaten at the Roarong Fork many times. The food is always delicious, and the service impeccable. Also, it is close to The Paramount Theatre!!

I asked a random woman on the street for a lunch recommendation and she said the Roaring Fork was a good choice. I ordered the "Half A**" Burger that I was only able to eat half of. I can't even think of how big the "Big A**" Burger is. I really liked the peppered bacon on the burger. The fries... More

This hotel restaurant is located in the heart of exciting Austin, and we loved it! The green chili mac & cheese app was a revelation. It's a fancyish place but they also have a Big A** burger on the menu, and it was excellent, served with poblano peppers, cheese, chipotle aioli and more, plus fries. It was truly big-a** and...

Visited on a Tuesday night so the crowd was quite small. Wait staff was very attentive and made excellent suggestions. Went with the "big a$$ burger" (yes that is what its called) and it is indeed that! Cooked exactly to my tastes and was awesome. Drinks were cold and mixed perfectly.

Sat by the fireplace with my wife last week. Had a burger and mushrooms, wine, and a vodka tonic. Tasty burger, excellent mushrooms (and large serving). Efficient service. Vodka tonic served in tumbler, odd; and a bit weak.
