Good Late Night Snacks

Doc's is great for lunch or a late night snack. Their nachos are really good. You can sit on the patio and watch the world go by.

Decent beer selection and fairly standard bar food menu, ordered a beef fajita served on a steaming hot skillet with onion and black beans, side of avocado and over cooked double deep fried potato fries. Chased it down with a pitcher of Austin’s finest beer, Live oak Heff. Place has a bit of tourist feel but a great location to... More

SoCo is great - this place is not. Went here for an early dinner on a Sunday and was seriously disgusted. Its dirty and the waitress was mediocre at best. There was hair in my salad and when I told the waitress all she said was "eeww" and took the plate. I've waited tables so I know that sometimes stuff... More

Great food and atmosphere. Love this whole South Congress area. White wings and mini sliders and ice cold beer. Great place to watch the game.

Great place roght in the heart of South Congress. Tuesday night is bike night (motorcycles). Everything from vintage to superbikes with lights and amazing paint jobs. Food is good, good beer on tap, full bar, super casual and good staff.

We stopped by after dinner on South Congress to have some drinks. The server was very friendly and attentive. The bar area was clean and well kept. Good prices on drinks. We didn't eat so I can't say how the food was. The location is great for people watching and dogs are welcome on the patio.

Group of friends and I went to SoCo to just hang out and do some window shopping at Lucy in Disguise, then went and had an awesome time doing an escape room at Lockdown Austin, and then came here to Docs for dinner afterwards. Made for a perfect SoCo evening! Perfect night to be outdoors and people watch!

This is a cool place to hang out and watch the tourists and hipsters on SoCo. the Burgers can be really good, or not so good, but you can never go wrong with the Onion Rings. Great options for draft and bottled bear and full bar. It's a people watching place with a good atmosphere and also a sports bar!

I so wanted to love this place. The beer selection is top notch, the atmosphere is great the service is very good but the food is really, really average. My wings had acceptable flavor with really poor quality chicken that had very little meat and tough because of it. The burger was ok but lacked flavor and I had the... More
