You don’t have to drive all the way to Louisiana for some authentic cajun food, just visit the Evangeline Cafe! They’re located in Brodie Plaza and have a menu that satisfies us every time we visit. The menu is vast and varied, with more than enough traditional fare and cajun favorites to satisfy the pickiest of eaters. The chicken and sausage gumbo is a highlight, as are the various po-boys. There are around eight different flavors which include veggie options. Grab one of the lunch specials to make the most of your visit, which covers the entree and sides. The chicken fried steak with spicy cajun cream gravy is one of our favorites, a spicy twist on a classic.
If you’re looking for pub fare for lunch, try Brick’s Pub. Located on Slaughter, this cozy eatery offers lots of classic pub options as well as some signature dishes that will definitely please. The Texas Poutine is a great starter that combines crispy dipper fries, chili, queso, and pickled jalapenos for that extra kick. You can pick up some of that homestyle chili (no beans, just like we like it), or try the grilled cheese and tomato soup. It’s simple but really satisfying. To really fill up, try one of the burgers or “dags” on the menu, like one of our favorites, the Bacon Jam Burger. Because bacon makes everything better.
Hey, we love this Austin chain just like a lot of other Austinites. The Mighty Fine Brodie Ln location is just a few minutes away from our Austin I-35 location, and it’s a regular trip for lots of our lunches. The menu isn’t all that complicated, because it’s mostly burgers, dogs, and chicken sandwiches. The important thing is: they are mighty fine burgers, dogs, and chicken sandwiches. Grab one of the hand-dipped milkshakes to round out the perfect combination of burger, fries, and shake!
