Austin Summer Treats: Lemonade

The strawberry lemonade is a hit with anyone who tries it. It's a popular lunchtime spot, but the combo of a big salad and sweet lemonade is so worth the wait.

P Terry's Burger Stand

This Austin classic not only has awesome burgers, but also awesome lemonade. Don't skip over it for a soda; the lemonade is so much more refreshing and worthy of our summer list. Check out any of P Terry's locations - South Lamar, North Lamar, and Ben White.

This new face in Austin Tex Mex isn't just good for their food and alcohol - they have some pretty fantastic lemonades that balance out the spice in their tacos.

Austin Summer Treats: Snow Cones

Snow Beach

801 Barton Springs Rd, Austin, TX 78704

Their shaved ice is super soft and they have an awesome list of flavors. Sticking with the lemonade theme, I recommend mixing the lemon flavor with anything fruity! Mix your own blackberry, strawberry, or raspberry lemonade!

Ah, Soco. This area of town never fails us for great eats, and the snow cone category is no exception. Check out the Frigid Frog's unique flavor list and smooth shaved ice among the other trailers down Soco.
