This was the first stop during my vacation in Austin. Nice and cozy restaurant. The sandwiches are amazing and satisfying. The weather was nice and cool enough to sit outside. Great place.

Excellent and interesting sandwich choices with several home made soup options and salads. It is located in an old house with inside and outside seating. Very casual and very close to UT. Service was excellent, quick and friendly.

Delicious sandwiches... nice setting with indoor/outdoor seating on the porch and iced tea of course ;) Had lunch but there are also morning choices - breakfast tacos Tex-Mex style and other options. Our lunch sandwiches tasted fresh with good bread, cheese and thoughtful condiments, some made with herbs. You can design your own sandwich too or have a half sandwich... More

What a great hidden treasure in Austin. Perfect spot for a birthday lunch. The grilled chicken sandwich was wonderful. It was a little warm inside but the food made up for that. There is something for everyone, including children. Will definitely go back.

This is a cool small house that has good service and delicious sandwiches! The different breads they use are fantastic. We arrived at 1:00 on a weekday and only waited a few minutes to order. There is indoor and outdoor seating. They are pet friendly here which I don't mind. However one gal had her small dog sitting on an... More

I went for lunch with a friend. The sandwiches are very good and service was prompt. I actually felt like I ate the perfect amount leaving satisfied without overeating. The ciabatta bread was fresh as was the mozzarella cheese in my sandwich. The small house has outside picnic tables in the shade which provides a relaxing venue to eat. The... More

A small house converted to a great little lunch place. Great soups and sandwiches. Seating both inside and out. Don't let the line scare you, it goes pretty fast.

I have lived in Austin for five years now and Food Heads has grown to be my favorite lunch place to take friends and family from out-of-town for good local food! The restaurant has a small-town feel and the location is a perfect distance away from campus. Outdoor patio of peeeeerfect for sunny days! Lami sandwich is my go-to.

We recently had lunch here on a visit to Austin. We arrived about 2 on a Saturday afternoon and the line to order food was out the door onto the porch. I heard people saying they had never seen the line so long. That being said, it was about 15 minutes wait to place our order. There are many tables... More

I've been to FoodHeads twice now, but this is my first review, and I will combine laments of both. Casual sandwich place in a converted house with a spacious outdoor eating area. Inside, where I ate to stay cool, there is even a library if vintage cookbooks to page through while you wait for your meal. Your choice of drinks... More
