Waterloo Ice House - 38th Street
This local institution has become a welcome destination for all kinds of Austinites. On any given night, you'll find college students watching the game at the bar, business folks meeting in the back room and families enjoying dinner together in the corner booths. The extensive menu is a free-for-all of American, Southern and Tex-Mex favorites to please any Austin palate. Breakfast is pretty standard for our city with migas, biscuits and gravy and pancakes at the forefront. For lunch and dinner, the burgers are the most popular menu items, but don't overlook the tacos or chicken platters that feature a variety of sauces, sides and toppings.
