I only wish there was one more centrally located in Austin. Just to be clear, most of the food here is heavy. Come here for all of the country cooking you crave done just right. They have a great selection for happy hour. Also, their pimento is the only pimento I've ever had that I've liked.

I went here for lunch with two co-workers and was thoroughly impressed. We started off with two apps- the red chile fries and the pimento cheese. Both were tasty. For my entree, I had the chicken fried NY Sirloin, which was excellent! I was pretty loaded already from the appetizers, so I had to take some of this to go. Overall, I loved this place and will return. The only reason why I deducted a star was because of the service. The service was slow...we were there for over an an hour and a half. It took forever to get our check! I will however return.

Went to the Round Rock location for Sunday brunch and really enjoyed the food. The pomegranate sangria was amazing and the food was wonderful! I wish I could get the Round Rock location to show up on Google maps but we were able to make it there regardless. I'll be returning for happy hour soon since I work so close.

I visited for the first time last weekend. I had no idea what I was expecting and was generally surprised. They specialise in comfort food. I had the Mac and cheese, an amazing spicy roasted buttermilk squash w/ basil soup. We were happy with the drinks we received from the bar, not so much for the drinks we ordered at the table. Good stuff, I recommend and will try again.

We went for the Sunday brunch buffet last weekend and it was ok, priced at about $16/person. Firstly, one of the seating staff that you deal with first thing was really rude which was immediately off-putting. He was a young guy, maybe even a teenager, who blew us off when we were ready to be seated and then we later saw almost run into customers/on his phone/rushing around the dining area. Even living in South Austin, it took us about 45 minutes to get there with some stubborn traffic on 290/71. Once we made it there the wait was estimated at 45 mins, but we really only had to wait about 25 in the end. The buffet has a decent variety of breakfast and lunch dishes as well as pastries, but nothing was amazing. Everything was at least good, but just nothing to write home about. Id' say my favorite items were the mac n' cheese and the biscuits and gravy. The waitstaff will bring eggs(cooked however you choose), biscuits and gravy, and silver-dollar pancakes to order which is nice. Overall, I don't think I'd plan on going for the brunch buffet again though I may give the dinner menu a shot sometime. The long drive, wait, and lack of anything astounding on the buffet spread just doesn't make the experience worth it in my opinion.

Jack Allen's is my favorite restaurant in Austin. Food is great and the atmosphere is equally is impressive. However, don't try and make reservations for large parties at this place. They are atrocious when it comes to reservations. Small parties are fine, but I have been denied 3-4 times for parties up to 16. Amazes me that every manager there will shoot you down as soon as you ask. Just had a guy there tell me he will check but he was 100% sure they could not book me. What's to check on if you are so certain?
