    Extensive selection, attentive service, and good live music on a hot Sunday afternoon. Loved the Circle Blur, but the flights are fun too!

    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!

    Great selection of beer, good space for groups of people. The communal outdoor seating area, performance area and overhanging lights add ambiance for a laid back summer dinner.

    The jalapeño Mac and cheese is to die for and the hit dog with everything is the best love this place 🍻

  • Chris W.

    BYFO Andoiulle sausage was full of flavour and spice. Make sure you have plenty of water/beer to take with it.

    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!

    Spin the lotto balls. Drink whichever number you draw. Pretty much can't go wrong. Beer down here is exceptional.

    Great beer selection, ask your waiter for some help choosing if you can't decide. We didn't try the food but it looked delicious!

    With more than 100 beers on tap (including those from Austin Beer Works) and an array of sausages to go along with ’em, Banger’s gets almost everything right. Read more

    I really like their Dak Bulgogi. Make sure you pay attention to the beer prices - some are unaccountably expensive.

    This would be my second home if I lived in Austin. Never thought I would say this but... I love Bangers.

    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.

    No wine or liquor, only serve beer. Server was very rude. I was in the bathroom when he was explaining the specials to my friends, when I returned he stated, "Y'all can fill her in. I'm not repeating"

    Chicken Sausage is too good, but be prepared to have 3 backups for your order, there's a good chance they'll be out of what you want.

    Andre Jurgensen · September 29, 2014

    Absolutely amazing. Food, beer and enviornment out of this world. Go watch the polka band cover Beyoncé on Sunday's during Oktoberfest.
