Where to Power Lunch in Austin


Perry's Steakhouse & Grille

114 West 7th Street, Austin, TX 78701

This Houston chain is known as much for its USDA steaks as it is for its famous pork chop carved table-side. Only on Fridays do they open their doors for lunch. This place is packed with high-profile Austinites because the plentiful pork chop is a deal maker priced at only $10. Be sure to make a reservation for your cut of the chop as well as for the deal going down at the table.


Trio

98 San Jacinto Blvd, Austin, TX 78701

I can think of no better place to conduct business than at this lakeside staple. Service is attentive, flawless and goes unnoticed giving you the tools and focus you need to get some business done.


24 Diner

W 6th St & N Lamar Blvd, Austin, TX 78703

Don't be fooled by the name on the sign, this isn't your typical diner food. Spotted here are Austin's power players and socialites alike. Your lunch companion will be so wooed by the food quality and service alone you'll be sure to seal the deal.


Wahoo's Fish Taco

509-A Rio Grande St, Austin, TX 78701

Surfer and skateboard stickers make be covering the windows and walls, but at lunchtime business suits and hospital scrubs sit along side board shorts in this casual dining room. Here you'll get a cool, casual vibe to make business go down easy.


Bartlett's

2408 W Anderson Ln, Austin, TX 78757

Formerly a chain restaurant known as Houston's, this locally owned hot spot is serving up the same consistency we have grown to love. This place is all abuzz at the lunch hour. Cozy booths and comforting wood-grilled flavors are just the recipe you need to make some magic happen.
