This restaurant is one of my local favorites. The Chicken Fried Chicken is exceptionally and all the sides are phenomenal. For a special treat, good to Hoover's for brunch on Saturday or Sunday and try the cheddar garlic grits; they're to die for!

The food is always hot and fresh. Tastes like momma's home cooking. This is probably one of Austin's best family venues. Will definitely go again.

This place is dynamite. Good old fashion home cooking, real friendly atmosphere. Kind of hard to find, but lots of close by excellent restaurants.

We were hungry for chicken fried steak and found Hoover's to be one of the top-rated places in Austin. The batter was fried to a crispy perfection on the steak, however, there was twice as much batter as there was steak. That was disappointing. What I found really irritating was the $2-$3 surcharge for sharing an entree.

The sidedish portions were all generous And the banana pudding cheesecake dessert was very good.

The service was very informative, polite and quick.

Adding the pluses and minuses puts Hoover's at the middle-of-the-road. So it's worth a visit, but not return.

Always a great place for some good southern cooking. I usually get the Jerk ribs or Chicken because I love the blend of spices. This is not the fanciest place around but the service is always good and they always have new & interesting items on the blackboard so make sure & check them out !
