WHY HERE: One stop at this East Austin watering hole, and the child in you will rejoice. Yes, we're talking about frozen Irish Coffee, Pimm's Cup on tap and a menu full of hot dogs and fries. As a bonus, if you live in the area, you can join the cocktails-of-the-month club.
WHY NOW: This place is fun but not in an over-the-top cheesy way (unless you get the chili cheese fries). It's entertaining in that what-will-they-serve-next sort of way. One visit isn't enough to take it all in, which means you should already plan on going back.
