Cain & Abel's
Where we've featured it
Cain & Abel’s in West Campus is a longtime staple for watching UT football games. The food here is your standard Tex-Mex/bar fare with things like burgers, nachos, and barbecue. And while there might be 64 taps of beer, for a lot of people the drink of choice here is a Texas Tea (basically a Long Island iced tea but with tequila). If you’re a UT student or alum, this place is a big game day go-to, featuring a huge patio with fans.
Another longtime gameday staple and UT favorite is Cain and Abel’s. (Abel’s on the Lake has great food, but is definitely nowhere near the West Campus location’s level when it comes to football watching.) If it’s not gameday, this might be a questionable choice for anyone over the age of 24, but then again after a few Texas Teas no one cares. If you’re a UT alum, this place will always be a gameday go-to, and will also probably always bring back the memories you hoped you’d eventually forget. Texas forever.
