Admittedly my experience with Honky Tonks is not the most extensive, seeing as I’m not from a Honky Tonk type of place, but a handful of people I know plus a bunch of strangers on the Internet say that this is the best one in Austin and after going there I can’t see any reason to doubt their claims. They got a Taco Truck, live music, plenty of room to test your legs at a variety of dancing genres, and enough reasonably priced drinks to give you the confidence to do so. Apparently they even have dancing lessons if you need a little guidance.
We came here with a crowd and the other patrons were very welcoming to us out of towners and the band was incredible. They had good whiskey on tap and pool. This place had it all and I’d recommend it to anyone coming through Austin.
