Fodor's Review

Now overshadowed by a towering condo project, this little shack of a bar owes its name to the Man In Black. It may look more like a lean-to, but this dive is an Austin cult favorite, with worn barn-wood walls covered with tattered Johnny Cash memorabilia, a shabby-chic patio with a random assortment of tables and chairs, and a very impressive beer selection. While not in the downtown mix, this legendary dive bar will be sure to showcase a variety of Austin-esque acts during SXSW.
