Contigo Austin

$$$$(512) 614-2260

Modeled after his family’s hunting ranch, Ben Edgerton opened Contigo in 2011 to bring some of South Texas to Austin. That means a menu full of things like rabbit & dumplings, Texas okra, local chickens, and a big indoor outdoor space connected by a barn door. Contigo is an awesome choice to come with a crew for an evening hang over drinks and shareable plates. It’s the kind of place you’ll only be able to find in Texas.

Food Rundown

Crispy Green Beans

The best snack on the menu, by far. Contigo Austin makes super flavorful vegetables, and you should hit that part of the menu hard.

Grilled Cheese

Nothing fancy here, but so satisfying. Contigo Austin makes its own bread, which makes this grilled cheese especially worthy of an order.

Rabbit & Dumplings

Probably the best thing you can order at Contigo. It’s an awesome stew, with really tender rabbit and biscuits on top. Don’t miss this.

Little Deli feels like a trip back to a simpler time, when the perfect Italian sandwich or slice of pizza was all you really needed.
