Just a friendly reminder that our downtown kitchen has been closed for the duration of this quarantine and remains so for now. The kitchen is of course shared with our sister bars Chupacabra Cantina and Moose Bar (Devil Dog). We thank you for your patience as we are taking the necessary steps to fully open and offer food once more at these locations. If you are craving our burgers and wings, stop by The Jackalope South Shore where the full menu is available! 😉
DJs should be outlawed in Austin bars... This garbage has destroyed the music scene... Make them hire actual musicians... That's what this city is supposed to be known for.
If you actually had a decent atmosphere instead of loud "music" that sucks, I might eat there.
What's better than BBQ in Texas? Texmex!
