Austin Restaurant Weeks

Austin Restaurant Weeks

AUG 15 - SEP 2

Austin Participating Restaurants 


This event may last longer than the weekend but that just means more time for you to participate. We’ve got two whole weeks dedicated to the delicious Austin restaurant scene and with more than 100 participating restaurants, you’re sure to find one or more to enjoy.

Here’s how it works. For the two week duration, each of the participating locations will feature a specially priced lunch, dinner, and cocktail(s) for you to enjoy. A portion of each meal purchased will go directly to the Central Texas Food Bank. 

Some restaurants you can expect are Culinary Dropout, Bar Peached, all Amy’s Ice Cream locations, Holy Roller, Jack Allen’s Kitchen, Sour Duck Market, and Yuyo, just to name a handful.

With so many participating restaurants, you better start planning out the next two weeks to ensure you make it to as many as possible. After all, you’re eating for a great cause so you have a good excuse.

Happy Restaurant Weeks, Austin!
