Dining Guide

Koko’s Bavarian

There’s plenty of gemütlichkeit out in this East Austin beer garden. The presence of partner Tim Love is apparent on the menu; consider the chunky rabbit-rattlesnake sausage and the cheese-stuffed venison sausage, both served on soft buns (a crusty brotchen would have been more to our liking). Inside, there’s a bar and an open fire, where the roast chicken goes on the tanning bed before being plated up with an herby dipping sauce and some addictive frites. In true European fashion, there’s mayo and ketchup for dipping the double-fried fries, but we loved dunking them in the queso that accompanied the enormous pretzel. In addition to the house brews, there’s a keen beer list and full bar. Prost!
