Food is great, atmosphere is great! Plus there is usually a band playing at night!

Decent food and beer selection - once you can actually get in an order. The place touts food and beer from 10 am to 2 am, but we were informed rather rudely that the kitchen was closing at 3 pm - when we went in to place a second order - and our kids almost went hungry. Service was slow and one of the staff members was positively rude, doubt I will come back again.

I absolutely LOVE this place. Whenever I have people come to visit from out-of-town, I always make sure to make this one of the stops on the list. It defines what I see as "Austin." It joins together the true culture that Austin brings to the table, and really does live up to its genre of "wacky convenience store." There's live music, and outdoor patio area, indoor and outdoor bar, excellent wine and beer selection (for sale and at the bar), and really unique Indian-meets-TexMex food items. I can't really name one thing to try here, because everything I've had has been really good in its own manner. It's a great place to hang out with friends or simply wind-down after a long day. If you want "Austin-y" then this is one place that needs to be added to your bucket list, stat.

Indian fusion at a bargain, healthy, organic, and live music. This is a great locals hang out. It's a bonus it's in our neighborhood.

Surprised! Is my first thoughts. From the outside, it doesn't look like much and may prevent anyone from going inside. But trust me, it is must, you need to stop by and check it out. It is a hidden treasure. They have many different types of beers on tap including wines. The Whip in, always seem to find good live bands to play. This place is very cool, hidden gem !

I am only disappointed that I lived in Austin a year before trying this place! Great atmosphere - inside and out. Live music often inside. They have a stellar brunch with drink specials. Their food is ridiculously good and the beer menu is hard to beat. They also have a grocery section with beers and wine to go. I wish I lived closer - no negative things to say.

This aint ya mammie's gas station. Its a Back to the Future meets Indiana Jones type atmosphere - inexplicably packed on a Friday night with weary travelers, paper-reading locals, and perfect people-watching-worthy first dates. Here's why: Beer and wine selection is vastly abundant, like a library has shelves for books, Whip In has refrigerated shelves for liquid books. Amazing. You can buy and consume anything they have for sale on premises, though they may ask you kindly buy all 6 cans first. Patio is fantastic. We had the samosas, which came out REALLY hot, violent with authentic Indian flavor - which we washed down promptly with some local craft selections (512 IPA, Pecan Porter, etc). Live music from an eclectic variety of artists keeps the crowd rotating around. Go. Now.
