“Austin Tradition - Dine & Dance !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

Always great live music - wonderful dance floor & the opportunity to see some very talented western swing dancers ! If you arrive early, some great chicken fried steak for dinner in the front area - then dance it off !! This institution is not to be missed if you're visiting from out of town !

“Boot Scoot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 February 2012

Where else but the Broken Spoke to still feel that Texas Honky Tonk ambiance. I've danced to great music at that place since it opened.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 February 2012

An Austin icon, known for dancing and drinking. A true honky tonk that also serves a mean chicken fried steak.

“Country dancing-yes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 January 2012

Again, a place which is a must to visit in Austin. Great live music with a short dance lesson but after that you can admire professional dancers sliding on the dance floor in real country outfit and they also take you to a dance:) There is a corner with lots of stuff displaying about the history of the place, famous singers, etc. Nachos and drinks are served.
