Austin's Best Locally Owned Restaurants
Posted by Charlie Harris

Good news, hipstery Texans, music lovers and breakfast taco enthusiasts: Just in time for South by Southwest, we've updated our list of Austin's best locally owned restaurants. Austin is the rare dining market where you don't necessarily have to choose between good food and great live music. Fantastic local restaurants that frequently feature live music include Artz Rib House, Stubb's Bar-B-Q, Threadgill's (Janis Joplin was a mainstay at the original venue), Guero's Taco Bar, Lamberts Downtown BarbecueGreen Mesquite, and  North By Northwest Restaurant and Brewery. Austin is also a blessed breeding ground for breakfast taco purveyors -- many are open morning, noon or late-night. The rest of the country really needs to hop on this bandwagon, stat, as chorizo and egg levels are dangerously low in most regions. Take a gander at some of our best breakfast taco picks. Without further ado, here are the restaurants we've added to our Austin Top 100 list. 

Annie's Café & Bar Barley Swine Bartlett's
Black Star Co-Op The Carillon Congress
Contigo East Side Show Room El Alma Café y Cantina
Foreign & Domestic Frank Franklin Barbecue
Jack Allen's Kitchen Juan in a Million Julio's
Justine's Noble Pig South Congress Café
