What’s your favorite thing about living at Ellie apartments on East Riverside? Some people love the proximity to downtown, while others love having easy access to Lady Bird Lake. If you ask us, however, the best thing about living at Ellie is being close to all the awesome little restaurants in this part of Austin. You might not have heard of the restaurants on the list below, but we guarantee you’ll start recommending them to your neighbors after you give them a shot!
With that said, let’s get right to this week’s blog. When you’re done reading through this post, please feel free to share the link to this page with your friends and neighbors at your community of apartments on East Oltorf!
If you get nothing else at Java Noodles, order the sesame chicken. Unlike a lot of Chinese eateries in Austin, Java Noodles doesn’t overcook their chicken. We love this place because you can order delivery through Yelp, making it one of the most convenient places to get food near your East Oltorf apartments. Delivery is fast, the food is affordable, and everyone on Yelp raves about the friendly staff. Give this place a shot next time you’re in the mood for no-hassle Chinese food!
There are really only two options that you should consider ordering when dining at Catfish Parlour. You can try to eat healthy by ordering the grilled catfish and veggies, or you can indulge in the greasy goodness that is the fried catfish and hush puppies. Catfish Parlour has an interesting setup — you’ll walk in and order your main dish, then fill your place with whatever you want from the buffet afterwards. This is a relatively unknown restaurant, but they’ve got high-quality food and friendly service.
For rock solid barbecue that comes out in massive portions, check out Donn’s Barbecue. This place is clean and they’ve got plenty of seating inside, making it a good option for lunch near your East Oltorf apartments. We’ve heard good things about the potato salad, and the ribs are out-of-this-world good.
The last restaurant on our list is a lovely little Mexican joint that specializes in breakfast food. Some of the the top-rated dishes include the pork and eggs plate, the enchiladas verdes, and the chilaquiles. One Yelp reviewer claims that Don Juan has the best breakfast tacos in South Austin, which is high praise for a little hole-in-the-wall restaurant.
Don Juan is a great option for anyone looking for a quick, tasty breakfast. Although the food is top-notch, it doesn’t take very long to come out. This place doesn’t go light on the serving sizes, so expect to bring some breakfast home with you at the end of your meal.
With that, we’ve reached the end of our list of the best restaurants near Ellie apartments!
