The food, the drinks, the service, everything was amazing. The quality of the ingredients is super good. Our waitress was able to give very good recommendations. This is a must go in Austin!

True confession, I used to live near Jack Allen's Kitchen and I was a regular there, so I'm surprised I haven't written a review before. I guess I was just trying to keep it to myself :-) Well I was traveling thru Austin recently with friends and I told them we had to stop for lunch here - I'm so... More

They have an assortment of varied foods- not your typical eggs and bacon. Wonderful breakfast casseroles and pretty good Bloody Marys. I gave them a lower score becuae our waiter was so not intereted in our party, our experience, and paying attention to the needs of the table. We had to ask for EVERYTHING. Other than that we did really... More

My hubby and I made early dinner reservations for our anniversary. We were spending our weekend in Dripping Springs, but was not impressed with the food choices there. We decided to make the trek 30 miles east to West Austin to JAK! Upon entering we were greeted by the hostess who offered us a "happy anniversary ". We were then... More

Sometimes when something goes wrong, you get a better picture of a restaurants real identity. I have been here many times, but today was an anomaly. I got the premier burger and they asked me how I liked it cooked. I usually get it medium to medium well, even though I really like it medium rare, its just too dangerous.... More

I'd heard great things about this place and it lived up to expectations. We began with the beef rib quesadilla's for the appetizer. They were yummy. I had the "13 Spiced Chicken Pasta" for my entree. It was creamy and seasoned wonderfully with just the right amount of heat. It also comes with sliced, fresh jalapeno's, which I asked for... More

The food did not disappoint! The Crunchy Catfish and Slaw, Roasted Ribeye Soup and Twisted Cobb Salad were excellent! Upon knowing that it was our first visit to the restaurant, the server brought us a complementary sample of the house made pimento cheese. That, too was delicious! In addition being attentive, she made good recommendation on food and beer. We... More

Oh my goodness... I found Heaven on Earth! This is such a wonderful stop for lunch. It was on the way to Round Top.... It is seriously the perfect stop for anyone who appreciates great food!! The pimento cheese appetizer was my first clue. Of course you want to order more... duh! I had a delicious salad with chipotle grilled... More

We ate here for lunch and were extremely impressed with the quality of the food here. The place was packed for lunch, which was a good sign, but we got right in and the service was very good. The Queso with guac and pork was delicious, and a great way to start the meal. The special of the day was... More
