This South Austin brewery makes some of the best beer in the city, has a big back yard, and is home to Soursop, a great food truck serving a mix of Thai and Vietnamese food. There’s no wrong day to go to St. Elmo, but if you need a good pre-weekend Happy Hour spot, head here for $6 chicken sandwiches and $2 Kölsch on Fridays.

Curra’s exists in a class with other local mainstays Maudie's and Gueros, operating on a platform of old Austin nostalgia, margaritas, and queso.
