Established in 1983, this downtown Austin restaurant was recently revived by a few experienced local restaurateurs and touched with the talent of renowned chef Camden Stuerzenberger. Executive Chef Camden Stuerzenberger pulls from his experience at Bess’s Bistro and Walton’s Fancy & Staple when putting together Hickory Street’s creative menu of comfort food with a unique twist featuring many gluten free options. A few popular favorites like their buttermilk fried chicken, unforgettable short rib mac and cheese and crispy buffalo calamari salad are perfect examples of why Hickory Street is fast becoming one of the best restaurants in Austin, Texas.
Their convenient location a few blocks from the Capitol in the middle of it all makes it a very convenient Austin dinner, lunch and happy hour spot for the surrounding local businesses and residents. The ambiance is perfect for any time of day with a spacious and lavishly shaded patio or cozy interior nicely positioned next to the heart of Austin. This set up makes them a popular Austin event venue for personal or corporate occasions like holiday parties, SXSW or even bridal parties. Although we strongly suggest taking advantage of this Austin downtown dining venue in person, Hickory Street also offers Austin lunch delivery during the week for orders $35 and up as well as catering in Austin for a variety of events ranging from weddings and other memorable special occasions to one of the best happy hours in Austin.
