We were visiting Austin during a vacation to multiple cities in Texas and were taking a tour nearby. While waiting for the tour to begin we were directed to the Moonshine restaurant for lunch. I ordered a roasted garlic appetizer which was impossibly messy and...More

Thanks for coming in during your visit to Austin! We're sorry our food didn't meet your expectations. Our Texas-sized portions aren't for everyone, and the large burgers can be cumbersome to eat. It's good to know that our servers took good care of you --...More

Moonshine has been an Austin favorite for years. Unlike many other places, they have managed to maintain a high level of consistency in the food and service. The hanger steak was very good at my last visit. My wife loves the chicken and waffles. The...More

After reading reviews, the bar was set really high for Moonshine. It met or exceeded our expectations. Food quality was sensational. As a Louisianan, I was very pleased with the spicy nature of foods. Food quantities are huge, so if we had to do it...More

Nice spot with good indoor and outdoor seating. Moonshine is really good and will catch you off guard so take your time! Friendly service. A little pricey, but not terrible. Good place to share appetizers with a group of friends.
