Shady Grove

1624 Barton Springs Rd.
Austin, TX, 78704, United States
TEL: (512) 474-9991

Named for the expansive pecan trees lining this trendy section of Barton Springs Road, Shady Grove's patio area provides coverage from the hot Texas sun. When weather discourages outdoor dining, there are tables available inside the cozy, patchwork-stone building, which is modeled after a 1940's forest ranger station. The menu has a mix of uncomplicated nostalgic dishes like meatloaf and chicken-fried steak, as well as offbeat Tex-Mex plates like tortilla-fried queso catfish and green chile cheese fries. 

Insider Tip:

How to look like a local: pull out the corner booth to reveal "Elvis Lives" written in cement, something only die-hard Shady Grove customers know about.
