Description

The muse for Irene's, a classic American bar and restaurant, is the grandmother of one of our partners, who describes the real-life Southern charmer as a "drinking, smoking, gambling woman with an immense heart and a keen understanding of true hospitality.” Irene's has the soul of an unpretentious dive bar but manages to keep a firm hand on service, a keen eye to hospitality and a pulse on style.

Starting at 7 am daily, you can stroll up to the counter window for a thick slice of sweet or savory toast or our signature cinnamon roll along with a cup of coffee (or even a pack of smokes, if you are so inclined). Then, meander back to the spacious patio nestled beneath massive pecan trees on the banks of Shoal Creek. When midday hits, park your bike in front of the shop at the custom metal bike stand, and come inside for a selection of seasonal salads and classics such as our steak sandwich, meatball sub and tuna melt. For heartier fare at night, consider pot pie or daily Blue Plate specials such as pot roast, King Ranch chicken and Frito pie. Our housemade old-school desserts, including strawberry cake and banana pudding, hit the spot any time of day.

I had the best mojito of my life at Irene's when I was in Austin this winter! I would love to go back and sit outside for another delicious mojito soon!
