My husband and I stopped in after walking around the UT Austin campus. We started with the brisket nachos which were so good. I got the catfish basket (fried catfish, fries, hush puppies and cole slaw - so much food!) and my husband got the...More

I went here on a recommendation from a docent at the Capitol Visitor's Center. I was told it is an historic place, a movie was filmed here, and politicians frequent it. The building appeared to be landmarked. I ordered a curry wurst and, although I...More

A historic restaurant near the University. This was our first stop after landing in Austin. Most of the group enjoyed Chicken and Waffles, the others bratwurst. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Wish we could have stopped there again, but we were on our way to Waco.

Looked forward to eating here as I am of German descent. What a disappointment. No sauerbraten, no schnitzel only brats. Lunch special was chicken and waffles. LMAO. Won't be back here again.

A new company has taken over as Scholz Garten, an abbreviated menu for now. The Curry-wurst is excellent, as is the Bratwurst.

Menu has changed. Nothing like what is listed on this site. It is basically now a small choice of salads and a few wursts. I walked from downtown to get the jaegerschnitzel, but was very disappointed to find the limited menu. Apparently, there was a...More
