    This genuine dive bar has quenched the thirst of generations of UT students, and now it's feeding them quirky, Japanese drunk food from East Side King in the back. Those pork buns are unbeatable!

    Just knowing how long this place has been on the Drag makes the experience that more awesome. Seen some seriously good bands here. See more during SXSW - check out what they have planned at

    Had my first legal drink here, thanks Brooks. No matter which new spot springs up, this will always be my favorite dive. It's loud, smelly, dark, and wonderful. The writing on the stalls is brilliant.

    Catch the best local punk bands and grab some fried pickles or even chicken fried steak. The cover is cheap, the music is good, and the food is just the greasy fix you know you’ve been craving. Read more

  • Erin C.

    cover is rarely ever over $5 at this place.well worth the music you may catch that night.3-4 bands and $5 cover? not having to deal with downtown and APD? yes, please.

    Just because a drink is called "shitty lemonade" doesn't mean it isn't freaking delicious.

    Sometimes it’s easy to forget how big this place is. Head out back for the less crowded bar and take your drinks to the picnic table in the alley for some people watching on the Drag. – Robert F.

    This really is a hole in the wall, and it's another Austin "best kept secret" for live music, off the traditional live music areas. Near campus, they have the most exciting local bands. When Fastball Read more

    Recording artist? I am still the mayor, and if you know the difference between Blaze Foley and Celine Dion, come down and have a drink. Please bring money; only the music is free.

    Because I am the mayor, they put my picture above the stage. Pay your respects, and ask the bartender for a shot in my honor.
