Hoover’s Cooking

2002 Manor Rd.
Austin, TX, 78722, United States
TEL: (512) 479-5006

At this unassuming restaurant in Cherrywood, local chef-owner Hoover Alexander serves Deep South—style comfort food with Tex-Mex, Cajun, and Jamaican influences. A large front window admits plenty of natural light into the dining room, which is simply furnished with original artwork, cushioned booths, and wooden tables covered with butcher paper. Incorporating fresh ingredients from local farms, the menu includes such signature dishes as chicken-fried steak, topped with gravy and served with sides like candied yams and jalapeño creamed spinach. Also popular are the daily specials, such as Saturday’s smothered pork chops, and weekend breakfast fare like sweet potato pancakes.

Insider Tip:

Stop by between 3 and 7 p.m. for happy hour, which includes specials on sliders, chicken wings, and Hoover’s famously potent margaritas.
