My Top Austin Lunch Recs

where to go for lunch

Perlas – This spot is right on South Congress, one of the most walkable areas of Austin! If you’re in from out of town I recommend stopping on Sout Congress for half a day to walk the stores and stop for bites. Many restaurants accept walk-ins BUT the wait will be super long. So I recommend making reservations before you come to town. My order: little gem salad add crab with fries on the side!!

Local Foods – The chopped green salad (add chicken) is SO GOOD. I have this once a week.

Pool Burger – My favorite burgers in Austin hands down.

Clark’s Oyster Bar – I can’t get enough Clarks! It’s super cute, but usually always packed at hot times. I am obsessed with their bread – it comes with big salt, butter and a side of radishes…it’s heavenly. My go-to order is hands down the crab louie salad (to die for) and a side of fries! They have the yummy, crispy, skinny friends and pile them high (they’re great to split!).

Summer House – Just off the hustle and bustle of South Congress in Hotel Magdalena. Such a beautiful spot where you can get tons of pictures. It’s tucked away and feels like you’re not in the middle of the city. I love the whipped feta.
