You'll see items like NXMW Chicken Pot Pie, and you'll know it will be familiar but with a twist that's sure keep you from thinking it's boring. It's huge portions so you might think about splitting something if you're not eating alone, or know you'll have leftovers for that midnight snack.

I went with my husband and daughter. My duck was excellent but the brussel sprouts tasted like someone dumped a shaker of salt on them. My husband's burger was good, but his fries were oversalted. My daughter's salmon was good and they substituted normal potatoes for the hot, spicy mashed. The place was yin and yang, good meat/fish and they... More

Got seated at the bar quickly. The bartender was extremely nice. The beer selection was impressive. They serve food but we just had a few beers so I can't speak to that but the vibe was nice and friendly.

When I first arrived in Austin, I stopped in for some lunch--perfectly delectable burger. Next time I took my colleague there for dinner. I ate a little light (bacon wrapped scallops app and a small Caesar salad) but it was delicious. My friend had the tuna over risotto and couldn't stop talking about how good it was. Of note is...

This is a great place with value priced meals and beverages. Easy to get to from the highway and parking is close. They also have entertainment every week.

The food was great, service was a little slow, many drinks were left empty. Overall, the beer was good, but served in a semi-warm glass. Overall, great dinner & salads.

Had the chance to visit Austin and wanted to visit NXNW again. Had eaten there about 6 years ago and remembered it. It is about the beer, but the food is good, average +. The atmosphere is nice, the restaurant being fairly large. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable of the various dishes. Started out with the stuffed mushrooms for... More

Great vibes, energy & clearly popular with locals, my visits 'off-season' two nights in a row proved entirely satisfying. Staff welcomed this single diner as if I had an entourage even though they were busy as heck. And the food? Big reason for my second night's return. I'm a gluten free girl and wow does this kitchen get it right!... More

This was my first visit to NXNW. I ordered the daily special which was Chicken Fried Chicken with mashed potatoes and green beans. The chicken was delicious! It was cooked perfectly and even though it was thin it was still filling. The gravy was very good. The mashed potatoes were delicious as well. The green beans were cooked just right... More
