We’re getting so excited to see so many of you here in Austin May 1-3. We have so many builders who love our DCX conference not only for the amazing speakers and awesome networking opportunities but also for the opportunity to stay for the long weekend in Austin, TX.
Austin is known around the world for its live music scene and we pride ourselves on “Keeping It Weird”. But don’t miss the opportunity to check out some of our great food options as well. Whether you’re dropping in for a day or staying for a week, Austin will satisfy your taste buds. Known for its unique flare and authentic flavors, Austinite dishes will impress even the most finicky eaters. Here at BDX, we’ve compiled a list of places that will indulge your cravings:
Located in the West Campus district in downtown Austin, El Patio is a family-owned restaurant that has been creating home-made Tex-Mex food since the 1950’s. Their specialty? Chicken enchiladas. If you’re looking for a place with great customer service and a homey feel, check them out.
While Texas is known for its barbeque, Austin is known for Franklin’s. Located in East Austin, this iconic establishment serves up a melt-in-your-mouth (literally, the meat falls apart!) brisket that blows away all other BBQ joints this side of I-35. Thinking about heading there for lunch? Be prepared to stand in line for a few hours – maybe bring a book or two while you wait.
Home Slice Pizza
New York came to Austin and brought us savory pizza. That’s Home Slice in a nutshell. With two locations – South Congress and North Loop – there’s no excuse not to try them out. Our favorite pick? White Pie with Spinach.
Kerbey Lane Cafe
A true Austin staple, Kerbey Lane serves up delicious food, including their famous Kerbey Queso (guacamole included!) and fluffy pancakes. The best part? They’re open 24/7 for all those night owls and early bird risers.
If you’re thinking about attending DCX or have already registered and are planning your trip down to the live music capitol, be sure to put these restaurants on your radar!
