    You might be thinking, “this is a bar on dirty, it can’t be that good.” Well, I am here to prove you wrong. If you want to have the best wings in Austin, Texas, you must go to The Jackalope. So spicy, so meaty, not fatty–perfection.

    On Wednesday’s, they have half price burgers and the burgers are AMAZE. The blue cheese burger or chipotle burger is the bomb. On Tuesdays, two-for-one pizza is where to be. The pizza rivals Homeslice, for sure. On Thursdays, they have pint night. I recommend meeting at Festival Beach for the Thursday Night Social Ride with Social Cycling Austin and then heading over to The Jackalope for some pint night.

    The only reason I give it 4/5 stars is because the service can be shitty at times. The crowd is punk rock/eccentric and awesome. The food is really good. You won’t feel like you’re in a crowded dirty 6th bar. If you love yourself, try out The Jackalope.

    This bar doesn’t look like much from the outside but once you get a seat and glance over the menu and draft list you’ll be ecstatic. I went here twice on my trip to Austin and loved it both times.
    My favorite item off the menu was The Tijuana Frank: wrapped in bacon, deep-fried, topped with jack cheese, jalapeños, and spicy chipotle-mayo. I washed it down with the local Fire Eagle IPA.
    I was basically like “Hellooooo Texas!…I’m never leaving…”

    They make some awesome burgers yum. I ordered the chipotle bacon cheeseburger with waffle fries and it was huge. I can’t believe I almost finished the entire thing, I do not want to know how much calories I wolfed down. All I know was that the burger was tender, juicy and
    Yumalicious . My husband ordered the a cheeseburger with pulled pork and he loved it as well. I am not a waffle fries person but those waffle fries were crispy on the outside and tender on the inside, all I know is that I smothered them in ketchup. I am not a bar person, but we wanted to try something new. The atmosphere was alright most people were coming here for the grub. Waitress was nice, staff were friendly. I have no complaints.

    This is a definite dive bar but the burgers are to die for. Come here on Wednesday’s because it’s buy one burger, get one free – and you can pick whatever burger you want unlike at Hut’s where you have to get the same one. I’ve tried the Blackened Ceasar burger and the Bacon & Brie burger. I prefer the Blackened Ceasar.

    I absolutely love this bar.

    The dark atmosphere, coupled with the the velvet posters of topless women on the walls always reminds me vaguely of Rob Zombie’s movie The Devil’s Rejects. There is always some bizarre, underground movie playing on the screen that you can casually watch while munching on some delicious bar food.

    I’m lactose intolerant, and I hate feeling restricted on what I can order, and I love the Jerk Chicken sandwich, its moist and flavorful, with a good sized portion. The drinks are also good, they don’t skimp on the alcohol like most bars who love to add more ice than alcohol, and their margaritas are nothing to scoff at either.

    I will be back Jackalope!

    Loved this place. First time here and we stopped by because Darren insisted it was a great place. He was right. Got two barstools at the bar and people watched the night away. Great beer selection (even though I definitely picked one that was not good! My fault though) and bartenders were on it. Def a stop I will make every time I go to Austin!

    Went here for lunch because I heard the burgers were good. They were pretty solid and reasonably priced. Lots of variety of what you could get on the burger. I got the standard bacon one and the jalapeño one and couldn’t decide which I liked better. The waffle fries didn’t come with it but they were great.

    Service was about what you would expect from a bar. And they didn’t have tea, which was disappointing, but not the end of the world.

    I didn’t realize how big the place was! I’ll have to come back at night to see how it is.

    Mmmm great place for burgers! And at a good price too! I got the Spicy Jalapeno Bacon Burger with fries, along with a beer. It came out to roughly $15 after tip. The burger was really really good. I loved it. I wish we can have more of those here in Los Angeles. Since I was only visiting at the time, I only got the chance to eat there once, but if I ever visit again, I would definitely try out their other entrees here.
