    Scholz bills itself as the oldest bar in Texas - they've been serving politicos, college students and other faithful lovers of their German biergarten food for well over 100 years. [Eater 38 Member]

    Austin's oldest outdoor biergarten and dining hall was built by German immigrant August Scholz in 1866. They still serve some German dishes alongside nachos, and burgers to a largely politico crowd.

    Get the Apple Strudel, but order it before you're done as they cook it fresh and it can take 20 mins SO WORTH IT.

    Scholz Schnitzel.... because in Texas, queso belongs on EVERYTHING. (It's good and you should try it.)

    The giant pretzel is a great way to start your meal and the brats and German potato salad should not be missed.

    You can catch ESPN Austin College Gameday every Longhorn home football game. The live pre-game show starts 4 hours before kickoff, and the live post-game starts as soon as the game ends.

    Ordered a beer, waiter never came back to get out food order. So, after 30 mins of waiting, we got up and left without paying. This place is always understaffed.

    The schnitzel is just ok. The service was just ok. The environment is just ok. That said the beer is great and it's an institution.
