    A sports bar that doesn’t cram the concept down your throat. We like the Greek Island Calamari as a starter and the bold flavors of the Hickory Burger. Share a dessert; the portions are huge. Read more

    A sports bar with better food than most. Watch the game while enjoying the El Rey Burger, which has an angus beef patty, sirloin, chili, grilled onions and jalapenos, along with their parmesan fries.

    Get the Brick Chicken Mac & Cheese - chicken, crispy pancetta, zippy sauce - to die for! If you're not a fan of meat, just ask for it without. The sauce and the crispy pancetta that make it for me.

    Best Sports bar in Austin. Hands down. Everyone talks about the Park Domain but I think Cover 3 food and fresh deserts puts the Park to shame. Can't wait or the opening of Cover 2 next month.

    If Jason is your waiter listen to his recommendations, the scallops are worthy of a #foodporn status. I nearly licked my plate clean.

    Full bar and a classy place to watch some sports or relax and enjoy the sophisticated, yet fun atmosphere. Ask for Kennan or Jacob for a server... they are awesome

    Can be noisy- not a place for a 1st or 2nd date. The snapper is excellent, as is the chicken fried steak. Mac n cheese is outstanding!

    Sure, it's a sports bar, but the food is fantastic — and sometimes, it's nice to be able to watch the game while you have a decent meal. [Eater 38 Member] Read more

    Try the Chicken Fried Chicken - Garlic mashed potatoes with green chili gravy. This was one of the best lunches I've had in as long as I can remember.

    The Mac n cheese was good but I have had way better. It looks better than it really is. The chicken with it was great, but bacon tough and chewy and not enough cheese on the Mac. Overrated!

    Great for annoying your vegetarian friends, as there is nothing vegetarian on the menu except the Caesar salad. Ugh.
