    It was my first time here and I decided go safe by ordering a hot dog and God was it the best I've ever had in a long time. It contained just the right amount of ketchup, mustard, and onions. Yum!

    Banger's may be all about sausage, but it's a break from the rest of the Rainey Street yuppie meat market scene. Go for brunch and enjoy live music plus their towering Manmosas. [Eater 38 Member]

    Banger’s laid-back biergarten aesthetic is a great break from the übercool ethos of Rainey St. Wash down the delish housemade sausages with 100+ taps of craft brew. Stellar vegetarian options, too. Read more

    Beer overload!!! Too many options and split between two bars. Definitely need to explore your options and try before you buy, if you can stomach some of the obnoxious bartenders.

    Awesome place with lots of seating outside, amazing homemade sausages & more than 100 beers on tap! When they say the Andouille is spicy, they mean it. They REALLY mean it. You've been warned.

    Austin's best beer garden...over 100 beers on tap and great artisanal (yeah, I said it) sausages. The lunch special ($8 for a sausage, side and a beer) is one of the best deals in town.

    Over 100 beers on tap (half are local), artisanal sausage, plenty of seating, and live music. Can't get much better than that.

    The drink menu reads like the manifesto of a genius turned madman obsessed with suds, and the art of sausage making is shown through exotic franks. You'll want to do more than just graze this garden. Read more

    Went here at 11am after a very hot run around the lake. When on vacation we like to end our runs at a bar, this one was perfect! Over 100 beers on tap and friendly and knowledgeable bartenders.

    The Duck, Bacon and Fig sausage, and the Rabbit & Mushroom sausage were sooo good. Large portions and messy, but totally worth it. Rabbit is a little spicy.

    Great venue with ~240 beers on tap - claim to have the biggest selection in Texas! Great sausages as well. Fun outdoor biergarten type area that often has live music (who doesn't in Austin?).

    Delicious scratch sausages and all of the sides are on point, especially the poutine. Incredible selection of domestic and imported beers with over 100 choices on tap. Crowded, but can't go wrong here

    If you're a vegetarian and thinking there may not be anything to enjoy here, order then Beats & Goat Cheese sausage. It comes a delicious pumpernickel bread. Delicious!

    The jalapeño Mac n cheese is the bomb! Just tried the bockwurst for the first time and I liked that too. Got a side of Siracha and sauerkraut on top too.

    Fried chicken sausage was fantastic! Lots of draft beer, michelada bar, and live music! Hint hint.. the long tables inside the bar area are open seating. Just order food / drink at the bar!

    Service is amazing! Nicole was an amazing waitress :) the drunk chicken with jalepeno cream corn is to die for! If your not a beer drinker try the crispin cider with a splash of raspberry beer!

    Amazing beer list...something for everyone. The homemade sausages are some of the best I've ever had. The bread on the sausage sandwiches is also a highlight. Basically this place is a 10 out of 10.

    This is one of my go-to spots to meet friends. The staff is so friendly, bring your dog, grab some food and drink some of the best craft beer from around the world.

    Do not leave without trying something on the food menu. The staff is lively and helpful and the fenced in dog pen makes Banger's a pet-friendly place where you and your dog can have some fun.

    Delicious food, an entire wall of craft beer and a huge outdoor area with some amazing music. However, you must try the MAN-mosa, a stein of your favorite brunch drink!

    Over 140 beers on tap. Don't bother reading the menu, just ask their very knowledgeable serves and they will surprise you with some great picks. Fried chicken sausage was amazing!

    Tons of sausage varieties and lots of beer on tap. Chilli cheese fries are good despite having a subpar fry as a base

    Great service and beer selection. And, one of the only places open on Rainey Street on a Monday. Perfect for old guys like me who don't want to hang out with the usual Rainey Street crowd.

    The venison and antelope merguez sausage is dynamite. They also have over 100 beers on tap and the bartenders are super knowledgeable, so try something new!

    Get there early on the weekends for lunch. They're a little weird about seating full parties but it gets busy. Get the Zoe beer and a sausage.

    A shell of itself. There used to be the best lunch special in town. When I asked the waiter about it, he said 4 other tables asked the same thing. Well, that's a sign you lost 4 unique loyal groups.

    The bratwurst is delicious. The potato salad isn't really German, but it is tasty (the bacon flavor is strong). It's loud, but the food, beer, and service are great!

    A little less crazy than other spots on Rainey, the food and music scene is fun. Fried chicken sausage was super good.

    Fantastic beer selection, veggie sausages (3 different kinds) made in house. They pickle their own pickles and make their own sauerkraut, too!
