Not sure what the hype is. Went on a Sunday around 11am. Not very busy. Waiter was late taking our order. Had to ask for water and coffee refills. Chicken Fried Chicken had a bad after taste, like oregano. May have been the gravy. Pancakes...More

We had an experience that I don't believe is consistent based on other's feedback, but unfortunately the perfect storm must have happened the day we tried out this restaurant. Our order ranged from chicken fried steak to grilled chicken salad to 2 grilled chicken sandwiches....More

We've eaten here many times over the years when visiting Austin. The food seems to be more mediocre every time we come. This time my BBQ dish arrived with over cooked dry meat and very cold BBQ sauce. After waiting for some time to ask...More

Week Night Dinner The waiter did well. When we asked questions that he did not know the answer, he went and asked. No problem with that. All of the food was good. The kids liked the grilled cheese.

A local South Austin hot spot since 1947, Hills Cafe has been serving up the best southern comfort food, steaks and BBQ anyone could ask for. An old Austin original with live music, catering, outdoor dining and large oak trees, Hill's Cafe is a destination for great food and fun! Did we mention a full bar and awesome drink prices?
