This place is outstanding! 1.5 hour wait at 6pm will tell you something. Pro tip: You stand a chance of getting a seat at the bar more quickly.

We visited Moonshine while in Austin for a conference. We tried on Sunday night and there was an hour+ wait, so we came back on Tuesday at 6:00. Still a 30 minute wait - it’s a very popular spot. I had the chicken and waffles...More

Dinners are large unless you’re a big eater. Food was served hot and freshly made. The ribs very tender and cornbread had a kick but not too much as is with some places. Worth the wait.

Came in for a weekend brunch meal after a night out in Austin. Chicken and Waffles were pretty good, though I prefer my waffles a little crispier. Backyard chicken sandwich was also good. Total for two was about $30, plus tip. Service was friendly.

The location is great - you can walk to Rainey street after your meal to continue your night out. The food was pretty good. I will say I think it's slightly overpriced, but that's just me. The moonshine was great! We got a salted caramel...More
