Hello, Austin. Welcome to The Required club.

The Required is our expert version of a "best list," comprised of the stand-out restaurants that have garnered the all-time most recommendations from our expert community. That's 5000+ all-star chefs, sommeliers, bartenders, and more–no black box of food editor committees or user surveys, just plain, crave-able cred.

Read on to plan your next trip—or just to be sure you've checked all the boxes on your home turf. 

Torchy's Tacos

We can’t talk Austin eats without discussing the almighty Breakfast Taco. For this Required List, Torchy’s Tacos takes the prize, according to our Austin Experts. They say it’s all about The Wrangler, with Eggs, Potatoes, Smoked Beef Brisket and Cheese with Tomatillo Salsa. 

Or if you’re recovering from a night of drinking on the Dirty Sixth, try the Trashy Trailer Park with Fried Chicken, Queso and Spicy Diablo Sauce, so indulgent and delicious that you’ll either go right back to bed or be ready to get back in the saddle again with one of their salty margaritas or local brews. With ten locations around town, you’d have to be actively avoiding Torchy’s in order to miss them.
