Hyde Park Fries

  Many thanks to The Daily Meal for including us in the Top 30 French Fries in America!   ”

22) Hyde Park Bar & Grill, Austin, Texas

Consistently voted as the best in Austin by the public and food experts alike, the fries at Hyde Park Bar & Grill are hand-cut from Idaho potatoes, dipped in buttermilk, then battered with seasoned flour and fried to crispy perfection. Get them served straight up with the restaurant’s special sauce or splurge for a side of homemade cheese sauce to dip the fries in.”

Hipstercrite names us one of “Austin’s Best Restaurants That Don’t Cost An Arm And A Leg”

Hipstercrite, a.k.a. Lauren Modery, covers pop culture & lifestyle in the ATX

There’s a blogger in Austin you really should make it a point to read: Hipstercrite, created by the lovely  and talented 20-something writer / filmmaker / fashion & design maven Lauren Modery.

She’s a New York transplant by way of LA who wised up and made the move to Austin just in time to build an enthusiastic following for her lively, entertaining blog and be named Austin’s “Blogger of the Year” at the Austin Blogger Awards in 2010. Her work has been mentioned in Texas Monthly, Mental Floss, Mashable, HuffingtonPost, Houston Chronicle, Le Temps and Le Soir.  The short film she co-wrote and co-produced,  Loves Her Gunwon the Louis Black Lone Star award at SXSW 2013.

Creative and resourceful, she’s exactly the kind of person we want to have make our fair, weird city home.  So we urge you to read her work, hire her to write for you, support her film projects, and say howdy when you see her.

She recently named Hyde Park Bar & Grill, along with several of our long-time restaurant brethren in a list of  “Austin’s Best Restaurants That Don’t Cost An Arm and a Leg.”   We are pleased and flattered and wanted to return the favor, hence this tip of our hat to you, Hipstercrite.  May Austin be the home that you want it to be!

 

 

 

BOTH: Austin Chronicle Names Hyde Park Bar & Grill “Best Comfort Cuisine 2013”

Hyde Park Bar and Grill with giant fork

Sometimes it’s hard to remember that we were not always a foodie town, that the current array of tastebud-boggling options was not always on our social menu. So it’s easy for old favorites to get lost in the din of dinnertime dilemmas. Strolling in and sitting down at one of Austin’s two Hyde Park Bar & Grills after not being there for a while and ordering one of their perfect meat-and-two-veg standards, like their pan-roasted chicken with green beans and mashers in a delicate tarragon jus, is much like that first holiday back home after being away at school: The experience is not just nourishing, it’s visceral, packed with mouthfeel memory and the revelation that while we may not have always been a foodie town, we’ve always had someone and somewhere saving us a seat at the table and pointing us in the right direction. — Austin Chronicle

Thank you.  We are so honored.  Come by & get comfortable.

CENTRAL: Best food neighborhood in Austin?

Best food neighborhood in Austin?

Hyde Park Bar and Grill Central on Duval

Our friend The Fork, adorned with a planet earth that now decorates the front of New World Deli!

Culture Map Austin wonders aloud whether the 42nd block of Duval in historic Hyde Park is “the best food neigborhood in Austin,” saying “this walkable restaurant row is a fun and quirky contender.”

(Spoiler alert) We couldn’t agree more.  We are proud to be in one of Austin’s most historic, and thoroughly walkable neighborhoods.

CENTRAL: Check out the new Shipe Park Pool Mural!

By | Central location, Community, Families | No Comments

Our neighbors in historic Hyde Park have outdone themselves once again.

As neighborhoods go, the one from which our restaurant takes its name is one of the most organized, active, passionate, inclusive, diverse, creative and resourceful communities in the city.

They banded together as a community, raised funds, got donations of time and talent, and created a beautiful mural at our beloved Shipe Pool!

Check it out and stop by the unveiling on Saturday to congratulate all concerned.

Congratulations to all involved!

Reservations at Hyde Park Bar & Grill

By | Central location, News Releases, South location | One Comment

As it turns out, you actually can teach an old dog new tricks.

Old Dog Learns How To Take Reservations

After almost 30 years in business, we’ve added a new trick to our repertoire:  We’re now taking reservations on a selected basis.

(“Selected basis?”  What do we mean by that?)

You see, it’s important to us to continue to be able to accommodate our many customers who come into the restaurant in a completely spontaneous fashion.   The walk-ins, the free spirits, the whimsters, the people who just up and say “hey, let’s go to Hyde Park Bar & Grill” on the spur of the moment.   We can’t let those folks down by having every table reserved.

But for our friends who like to plan ahead, we’re now making selected tables available for reservations.

Reservations at Hyde Park Bar & Grill:

  1. Call or click on these links to reserve at Central (Duval) or South (Westgate).
  2. Reserve your table.   We save the exact number of seats you enter — no more, no less.  And we’ll hold the table for you for up to 15 minutes after your reservation time.
  3. NOTE:  If a reservation is not available, there are tables available on a first come, first serve basis.   Feel free to inquire about walk-in table availability and whether there is an expected wait time.

Come have your party on the patio!

Guests enjoy themselves and dine al fresco.

Looking for a spot for a private party for up to 80 people?   Check out our patio at the Westgate location.

Our patio, transformed for a private sit-down dinner.

Three happy people at a private party on our patio. Even if your guests aren't as good looking as these ladies are, we promise they'll have fun!

If you’d like to hold an event on our patio, talk with Daniel Caudle at Hyde Park Bar & Grill at Westgate — 899-2700.   He’ll work out the details for you to have a fantastic private affair.

Parking at Hyde Park Central

By | Central location | No Comments

It’s come to our attention that some people don’t think there is parking available for our original location in historic Hyde Park.

Take a look at this.

plenty of parking for our central Austin location behind the restaurant at 43rd & Ave H

Yes, that’s a parking lot.  It’s right behind the restaurant/Quack’s etc at 43rd and Ave H. Easy in, easy out.

Come try it out.
