The Original Hoffbrau Steakhouse, an Austin original, serving hearty Texas steaks since 1934. This old-school restaurant opened its doors as Prohibition was repealed. Brothers Robert and Tom Hamby started serving cold cuts and keg beer for a nickel. Fast-forward 80+ years, the Hoffbrau is still serving huge steaks with a no-frills vibe, and has added classic cocktails to its menu. The Original Hoffbrau Steakhouse 6th Street Restaurant is an Austin tradition and a must stop for locals and Austin visitors alike.

    Amazing!!! A must try staple in Austin!! This establishment has been around forever! It’s generational!

    Really cool that the establishment is in it’s original location!! Loved the authenticity and originality! Very take it or leave it steakhouse!! I loved it!

    Starts with a take it or leave it salad with lettuce,olives, and tomatoes tossed in olive oil, lemon juice, and garlic! I loved it!! So did my husband!

    Enjoyed a top sirloin and my husband had a ribeye, both smothered in garlic butter sauce that will make you drool!!

    They provide a nice slice of bread for the sopping or you can dip you thick cut steak fries in the yummy butter renderings!

    They were under construction, adding on a patio area and maybe a bathroom! Lol

    Every single bite was heaven.
    We had the NY strip and the Top Sirloin. Omg the love it or leave salad was perfect. No wonder this place has been around 4ever

    They have their food and systems down.

    Great service, food was outstanding, and great experience.

    Hole in the wall with the best steaks out there.

    They add lemon butter sauce on your steak that you sop up with the yummy wonder bread they give you.
    Sounds silly but ohhhhh so good.

    In 2000 my wife and I found this establishment while in Austin. We have talked about how great the steaks were for years and I compare all steaks I eat against my Hoffbrau experience which was the best I ever had. In 2016, we finally made it back and the steaks are as good as I remember! This restaurant has a long tradition of food excellence and you will not be disappointed when you visit. It has been owned by the same family for many years and most of the staff have worked their for 30+ years. Smothering a steak in butter is genius and brings out such a good flavor. The salad was simple but so delicious! I think it was called the take it or leave it salad and I definitely took it! You MUST try their steaks at least once before you die! Put this place on your bucket list and be prepared for the most succulent steak you have ever eaten in a historical building off 8th street!
