First time in Austin Tx and drove by this place. Looked interesting from the outside. So on the way back I stopped in. I am glad I did! Food was outstanding and the service top notch. Had the appetizer, 1/2 order of Chicken Nachos. Very good and did the trick while watching NFL football on the numerous TV screens this... More

lots of big TV screens. Food is good, especially the large variety of appetizers. Good beers too. Service is effective and pretty fast. Good value for the money.

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.

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.

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 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.

Thank Bob M
