Fantastic food from salads, to to burgers to yummy fried beef ribs to the very best Mac'n Cheese in America. A group of servers who know the menu and are proud to tell you about the food and convert a sense of pride because they have the good fortune to work there!!! .

We eat at Jack's all the time. It is close to our home and in Austin that means a lot. There farm to table food is great. I have seen the owner/cook at the market on more than one occasion.

Our last dinner at Jack Allen's was a mixed bag. My wife had the fish tacos and said they were good. We ordered some broiled Brussels sprouts for the table and all agreed those were outstanding. I ordered a chopped beef sandwich and it was terrible. The rest of the group had surf and turf and chicken fried steak. All... More

Service was great and the Burger was good with a nice "char" flavor, however the appetizers could have been more flavorful....just average

Great food....whether you choose items that are good or bad for you. Service is good and so is the beer selection. Book ahead even midweek. Parking is limited but there is free valet service. Never been disappointed here.

Best 5 Cheese Macaroni I ever had. The chocolate bomb is a must have. Staff is super friendly and knows every detail of every dish on the menu. Super pleasant environment. We had lunch on the patio and couldn't have been any nicer: music, nice view, fireplace...definitely the best option near Austin

My family took me here for dinner when I was visiting. So many delicious choices at reasonable prices. The chicken fried steak was great. The tacos was tasty. And all in a nice- Texas country, but not cutesy setting. The prices were very reasonable.

The food is amazing and the atmosphere and service are enjoyable. Drinks have fresh juices in them and are really tasty. Everything is good - you can't go wrong when ordering.

I reviewed this place several years ago as average mainly due to the prices and noise. Since then we have visited twice again and I must update my thinking on Jack's. Once again I am impressed by our visit to Jack's. We had a great experience on December 23 2016 and decided to return to try the Sunday brunch today.... More
