Open Call: What Are Your Favorite Places With Good Food and Bad Atmosphere?

Austin is home to the dive bar, which epitomizes bad atmosphere but fun times. But there are plenty of restaurants around town that fit that bill too. What are some of your favorite places to eat where the d├ęcor is lacking and the air a little stale? What keeps you coming back for more?

Tell us in the comments below, and look for your quotes in an upcoming story.


  1. Definitely, Asia Cafe at 8650 Spicewood Springs Road. Their street address is very aptly named because this is very SPICY, delicious food in the southwest Chinese style from the Sichuan Province. Very authentic. Another with bad atmosphere but fantastic food is Tam Deli & Cafe at 8222 N Lamar. Vietnamese delicacies under the florescent glare.
