Crown & Anchor Pub review image

Crown & Anchor Pub


2911 San Jacinto Blvd, Austin
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Every day the North Campus bar Crown & Anchor puts a different brewery (or region) from their tap list on sale, and knocks the price down to less than $5 a pint. It’s one of the cheapest places in town to sample some great craft beers in a fun, laid-back environment. The bartenders will probably make some sarcastic remark about your order, before opening up with a grin and a joke that’ll make you feel like a regular, whether it’s your first or fortieth visit.

Grab a pint—or make it a pitcher—and play a few rounds of billiards or darts while you mill over your food order. The burgers here are about as classic as they come, and they’re some of our favorites in town—the best part is that you never have to wait in a long line, spend a lot of money, or win some kind of raffle to eat one. All you have to do is make your way a few short blocks north of Campus, and grab a seat at one of the most chill pubs in town. 

If you’re a fan of rivalries—schools, football teams, even siblings—you’ll probably be familiar with the divide of fans between Crown & Anchor and Posse East. It’s also fine to be a fan of both, and when they’re as close to each other as these two spots are, why not just go for a quick burger-and-beer hop, and find out for yourself?
