One of the better Southern meals I've had in a while. To start, the drinks were top notch. I had the blood orange margarita, that was both spicy and smoky. One of the more unique yet intriguing drinks I've had. The 3 of us shared the oyster boudin balls, which were amazing. We also enjoyed the roasted turnips and beets... More

Went with a group of six and they gave us a private room off to the side , the main area was very crowded and loud but the side room was actually very nice. The wait staff was very knowledgeable and extremely willing to help. She responded to our questions and got all the weird and crazy drinks we kept... More

The Salty Sow! Set in the heart of East Austin, it’s a walk away from a major college(UT Austin, home of the Longhorns). There must have been 15 restaurants(and about 20 food trucks), in the vicinity of this restaurant, and I’m thinking to myself, how do they survive. As you walk in, you notice the vibe that is Austin.

Duck fat fries.....Oyster boudin fritters...pork belly. And a fresh farm salad. I love this place, I try to visit a couple of times a year when I'm in Austin. Definitely worth trying at least once.

I am no longer a big eater and a beer and main dish was enough. I had the penne special and it was good. It looks like a great place for a date but I was solo and from out of town.

The service, food and atmosphere are all excellent. The bone marrow and pork belly can't be beat. Definitely a must try.

My family and I never made a reservation however there were many tables that were empty. They made us wait 20 minutes before we sat down. Other people arrived they also had to wait! When clearly you can see many tables were empty! Then the waiter told us there is a table ready, they had a cancellation, which is very... More

Fabulous! Must order the Brussel sprout leaves! Took the city bus (20) from the Sheraton and it took us right to it. May need to get a reservation, but there's a great Mexican place to get drinks across the street

Thank Katy T
