We usually wouldn't recommend going to a restaurant just for their fries, but at Hyde Park Bar and Grill, their fries are just that good. A twist on comfort food, Hyde Park Bar and Grill was awarded "Best Comfort Cuisine 2013" by the Austin Chronicle. And with an pleothora of non-meat options, including a great veggie burger and a number of delicious pasta dishes, that comfort extends to vegetarians, too.
