Ranch 616, Austin, TX

Perhaps the funkiest restaurant in a city known for offbeat dining establishments, Ranch 616 calls itself a “South Texas style icehouse.” The eclectic décor is part roadhouse, part bunkhouse, and part shrine. It somehow works.

Ranch 616’s claim to fame is an unusual combination of seafood and authentic Mexican fare. You haven’t lived until you’ve dined on fried oysters followed up with pork empeñadas. Portions are Texas-sized, and there is a nice selection of wines and cocktails to keep things interesting.
