Hyde Park Bar and Grill
Hyde Park Bar and Grill Review
With its simple, eclectic menu focusing on comfort foods and more than ample portions, it's no wonder that this welcoming neighborhood hangout has kept the locals coming in since 1982. Both the original restaurant on Duval Street and the newer South Austin location decorate the walls with original paintings (for sale) by local artists, and maintain an easygoing atmosphere for both the shorts-and-T-shirt crowd and dressier factions. The variations on simple fare run from generous salads and sandwiches to steaks and grilled seafood. Platter-size chicken-fried steak and delicately breaded and peppered fries are house favorites. Service is friendly and very competent. Weekend brunch is busiest—look for the hungry crowd milling around the towering fork-in-the-road sculpture outside. Area parking is limited.
