You may have heard about Tony’s Southern Fried Chicken from Texas Monthly or Rob Balon or one of the many highly respected Austin food bloggers. You may have heard that this chicken is THE classic Southern Fried Bone-In Chicken, so good it could make you elbow your grandma out of a church supper buffet line. So good we have to treat like a controlled substance. Offered only on Mondays and Tuesdays so we have time to put in the LOVE.
If so, you heard right.
The secrets to perfect fried chicken lie in the meat preparation, the breading, and in clean, high quality oil held at the ideal temperature throughout the vat. It takes special attention and time. That’s why we offer this dish only on Monday & Tuesday nights, which are typically less crowded than the weekends, at a time when we can give this chicken the care it deserves. But be aware: this chicken’s so good, we’ve been known do land office business on Mondays & Tuesdays, so come on in early before we run out!

“How do I describe my style? I like to make realistic angles, perspective, light and shade using impressionistic abstract colors. I like to paint images that have cool stories behind them, many of them from personal experience. I realize that an artist can work on any painting indefinitely and it will never be ‘perfect’ so I decide a painting is finished when I can look at it and say, ‘That looks pretty cool.’ Thus my brand name Pretty Cool Art by cjo; and the obvious double entendre meaning, art which is both pretty & cool.” – CJO
There’s an area at Hyde Park South that, for our art display purposes, we call “the Island” — a wood-covered wall with booths on each side. It’s ideal for smaller pieces that benefit from a more intimate viewing experience.
April 11 through May 30, 2015 we’ll be showing the imaginative work of Ryan Sponsler on the Island at Hyde Park South. Ryan’s art reflects his belief that “a painting is an object in itself.” Let’s just say he thinks out of the box.
To experience Ryan’s art, ask to sit in the Island area for an up close and personal view of this unique work!
Hyde Park Bar & Grill South will display 60 paintings from The Bunkhouse Gallery Artists, a group of artists who frequent artists’ retreat at the historic Wenmohs Ranch. The subjects range from food to flora to fauna to fantasy, with use of vibrant color as a unifying theme.

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