Restaurants To Support Near one of Austin’s Best Senior Communities

Delicious, Local Flavors Are Just A Short Drive Away From The Clairmont!


Austin, Texas has an amazing food scene–in fact, it’s considered one of the top cities in the United States for foodies to explore. It’s known for its Tex-Mex restaurants, but all of the options in the area are quite delicious in our opinion. Luckily for residents at The Clairmont Retirement Community, many of these restaurants are just a hop and a skip away, making it so easy to support and eat local! Here are some of our favorites:

Pour House Pints and Pies

Just around the corner from The Clairmont, you can find locally-owned Pour House Pints and Pies. This neighborhood pub offers a scratch kitchen-style menu that features delicious items such as customizable pizzas, specialty sandwiches, fresh salads, and more! Plus, it has a variety of creative and classic cocktails and 30+ taps. There’s so much more to love about this laid-back spot than just the food–it has a lovely open patio, is wheelchair accessible, and is dog-friendly!


Garbo’s features delicious New England cuisine with an Austin flare! From its creative lobster rolls to its raw bar to its flavorful appetizers, it can be hard to decide what to order. We recommend going back to try it all! There are so many ways to enjoy Garbo’s–consider grabbing it to go or even catering it for a private event!


Although it’s a chain, Chuy’s was actually founded right here in Austin in 1982! Chuy’s Tex-Mex dishes are no exception to the saying that ‘everything is bigger in Texas’. The chain, with a location right around the corner from the Clairmont, serves large plates, including its famous “big as yo’ face” burritos. If you’re craving something with big local flavor, then Chuy’s is always a great option!

Jack Allen’s Kitchen

If you’re looking for fresh, locally-sourced cuisine with a variety of dishes to choose from, then Jack Allen’s Kitchen might be the spot for you. The restaurant offers delicious options, including hearty appetizers, seafood plates, steak, taco platters, fresh salads and so much more, all of which are Southern-inspired with a Southwestern twist. Plus, you can pair your dinner with a refreshing, fresh-squeezed drink, such as a margarita or martini.

The Peached Tortilla

Offering a unique dining experience, The Peached Tortilla is a casual eatery that serves modern Asian-fusion fare with a Southern twist–and tasty cocktails to go along with them! This restaurant also has fun specials such as taco Tuesday, fried chicken & whiskey Wednesdays, ramen night Thursdays, and social hours on its lovely patio. From breakfast to dessert, The Peached Tortilla’s menus offer something delicious for every occasion!

Blue Corn Harvest

Serving authentic, Southwestern fare, Blue Corn Harvest Bar & Grill is a moderately priced and casual dining spot. Stop by for a delicious meal on the lovely, outdoor tree-covered patio. Including vegetarian and gluten free options, you can find dishes like tacos, enchiladas, seafood specials, soups, and more on its menus. Plus, it offers a full service bar featuring both local and international wines and beers as well as delicious mixed drinks.
