Top 4 restaurants with outdoor seating in Austin?

Its been a long, cold winter in New England, so I want to be outside as much as possible when I go to Austin this summer. Here’s what I’m looking for:

• More concerned with quality of food than price
• Prefer Tex-Mex, but open to other kinds of food
• Can be anywhere in the city if the food is good
• Must have outdoor dining

    One place to consider is Hula Hut which is low-medium priced tex-mex (some Polynesian fusion) that sits right on the lake and has a pretty large outdoor patio and bar. Pretty yummy and great for visitors. Expect a wait for seating during prime hours though!

    Hula Hut

    The Salt Lick is famed for its BBQ, it has an open pit you can look into when they're cooking, and a large outdoor seating area.

    Downtown, Second Bar and Kitchen has fantastic food in a convenient location with a terrace to enjoy the sweltering heat.

    Easy Tiger has a great outdoor space and a great selection of beers, and some food.

    Finally, there are dozens of food trucks in East Austin, most of them with outstanding food. A simple Google search will do the trick.

    • Moonshine Patio Bar & Grill is one of my favorites. The food is great and the ambiance is also nice, with exposed brick on the patio. It's more on the dinner for 2 -4 side. It's less tex-mex and more American/Southern Fusion.


    • Trudy's (There are several locations) is great for a bigger group. It's on the tex-mex lines and is known for the margaritas.


    • El Naranjo has great reviews for "upscale mexican". (Note: I haven't been.) It's on the new-ishly trendy Rainey Street in East Austin.


    Really, you can't go wrong if you want outdoor seating. Nearly everywhere has it.

    Ok, So I don't remember it having outdoor seating but the Roaring Fork had the best mac and cheese I've ever had and that's a high bar.

    I would recommend Banger's Sausage House & Beer Garden - it's not TexMex, but it has your other requirements and spades. It's also in a cool part of town.

    And, luckily, a lot of Austin places have a good patio. I'm sure other will have great Tex Mex recommendations for you.

    Not to mention that have a ton of beer on tap. Good luck!

    Go to La Condesa downtown. They have outdoor seating, incredible food, and an exquisite aesthetic.
