The place is good, and there are many students of the UT around. The service and the food could be better

I am so glad it is still around. With everything changing in Austin all of the time, it is good to see something still around. The name says it all. It is a basic dive bar. Don't expect any craft cocktails or fancy shots. Good...More

This place was right next the hostel I was staying at while in Austin. The drinks were well priced and there was live music every time I went there. It's a very laid-back and quintessentially "Austin" establishment and I highly recommend.

Great place for live music, and good and friendly service. A bit away from the city centre (the 6th Street) but well worth a visit!

It's definitely a hole in the wall, but in a good way. I had Thai Chicken Kara-age and I really don't eat rice, but I downed it all covered in some sriracha!! Amazingly good with cilantro, basil and onions. You've gotta try this!

Best Austin bar ever. Spending time at the Hole in the Wall is like being in a big, friendly and..well, alcoholic and good-music-addicted family. The place is very big, has two stages for your daily portion of good live music, and an open backyard with...More
