Jack Allen’s is a top-rated restaurant in Austin, so it’s no surprise that your visit often comes with a long wait - even with multiple locations around town. My solution is to head over early to not only beat the crowd but take advantage of happy hour prices! Every day from 3-7 pm, Jack Allen’s offers drink specials and half priced appetizers. Don’t be fooled - the apps are served in generous portions and can easily be made into a full meal.

To start, we selected our dollar-off drinks. I chose the Pomegranate Sage Margarita, made with 1800 Silver Tequila, Cointreau and of course, pomegranate and sage. Not too sweet and with a unique taste of sage, this has become my go-to choice. We also love the Mexican Martinis, a generous portion served with their own shaker.

For appetizers, we were a little ambitious. We started with the Chicken Nachitos piled high with roasted chicken, refried black beans, American cheese, Cotija cheese, and pickled jalapenos. Even at just $4.50 on the happy hour menu, these nachos are enough to feed a crowd.

We also chose the Pork Belly BLT sliders with fried green tomatoes, pimiento cheese and cole slaw. These were admittedly a bit heavy, but I loved the fried green tomatoes. Again for just over $5, this is quite a deal. We rounded out our meal with the smoked beef rib quesadilla. Whether it’s happy hour or not, this is one of my favorite items to order from Jack Allen’s. Made with pepper jack cheese, onions and peppers, these quesadillas are melt-in-your-mouth good.

The Chunky Queso is also one of my favorites, layered with irresistible green chile pork. And if all this is feeling a bit heavy for happy hour, you can make yourself feel better with a side salad!

Jack Allen’s is great for any meal of the day, but it’s fun getting a sampler of starters, especially at half price. Don't be shy about showing up early - the crowd will be right behind you.
