Loved the Road Kill Nachos! Great choice of brews and really friendly staff. Short walk from Barton Springs. Great outdoor area with misters and fans.

Easily accommodated a large party with no wait time. $3 beer cocktails were surprisingly good to me. I liked the strawberry one the best. Food was underwhelming. Fried okra and French fries were delicious. Everything else was just okay.
