7 Texas Restaurants With Patios Perfect For A Relaxing Springtime Meal
With the glorious weather we’ve been having lately, it would be a crime to not take advantage of it by eating outside as much as possible. Luckily, Texas is full of restaurants with charming patios that turn your meal into an experience you’ll never forget. Here are 7 of the best:
1. Beck's Prime on Augusta (Houston)
This particular location of the iconic burger joint features an enormous, nearly century-old oak tree that forms a canopy over the patio as you eat your delicious meal. The perfect shade on a sunny summer day! The address is 2615 Augusta Dr, Houston, TX 77057.
2. Contigo (Austin)
Entirely outdoors, this ranch-style restaurant/hangout spot is known for its unique drinks and appetizers like ox-tongue sliders. Fear not - if you aren't up for that level of strangeness, you can settle for more normal fare like this massive burger with oozing cheese and crispy bacon. It's located at 2027 Anchor Ln, Austin, TX 78723.
3. Taqueria la Ventana (Dallas)
Along with serving up authentic Mexican food that's to-die-for, Taqueria la Ventana has a charming outdoor seating area sure to remind you of childhood lunchtime days in the schoolyard. The laid-back atmosphere is ideal for just sitting back and talking about life while you chow down. Stop by sometime at 1611 McKinney Ave, Dallas, TX 75202.
4. Harold's (Houston)
Located in the Heights, Harold's is a rather upscale eatery with a gorgeous upstairs patio looking out on the street below. Dine on a fancier version of shrimp and grits, sip on a cold beer, and watch the sun make its descent behind the skyscrapers in the distance. A perfect date night, if you ask me. The address is 350 W 19th St, Houston, TX 77008.
5. The Oasis (Austin)
The Oasis is arguably the most well-known patio in Austin due to its sheer size and breathtaking view. Situated right on Lake Travis, the quadruple-decker restaurant provides an absolutely stunning atmosphere to admire as you eat your delicious seafood meal. Find them at 6550 Comanche Trail, Austin, TX 78732.
6. Americano (Dallas)
I'm not sure which view is better: the hustle and bustle of downtown Dallas through the covered indoor "patio" or that glorious pizza...nevermind, that one's pretty obvious. It's located at 1530 Main St, Dallas, TX 75201.
7. Easy Tiger (Austin)
Known for its humongous, soft Bavarian pretzels and beer, Easy Tiger has a relaxing patio overlooking Waller Creek. There's even a ping pong table! I can't think of many better places to spend the day with some friends. Drop by at 709 E 6th St, Austin, TX 78701.
