About the restaurant
The name really says it all. With 202 beer taps and over 20 house-made sausages we have one of the largest selections in the country. We are equally committed to quality, serving up the most delicious sausages we can make and the best craft beers we can source. In addition to beer and sausage we also operate an onsite smokehouse with a variety of offerings centered on slow smoking and open fire cooking.

At the end of the day, Banger's is all about being a wonderful place to eat, drink and hangout. Not too rowdy, not too laid back, just a good old fashioned good time.

This was such a fun atmosphere. It’s on Rainey street so it’s a happening place. We really liked the food. All the sausages we had were great including the salsa verde, duck and fig and bratwurst. The fries were super crispy and I love that they had poutine. Live music here some nights and it’s a great place to enjoy some outdoor eating.

About the restaurant
IMPORTANT: If Open Table does not offer you a choice to book an outside table it is because they have been booked already. If there are tables outside available you will have a choice between "Standard Seating" (meaning inside) or "Outside Table". We may have cancellations etc that could open something up so you are welcome to leave us a note that you would like to move outside if possible, but we cannot guarantee that.

We ask that all reservations up to 4 people respect a 90 minute seating time. Tables of 5-6 will be allotted 2 hours.

Since this location has limited protection from rain we could be forced to cancel outside reservations last minute. We will do everything we can to provide as much advance notice as possible.

Parties up to 6 people may be reserved online. For parties of 7-10 people please call our host staff to make a reservation at 512-327-8822.

About the restaurant
Sonya Cote, the James Beard Foundation WEL alum and Texas chef known for Eden East, now adds Store House Market & Eatery in downtown Bastrop to her portfolio.  A proponent for local purveyors and a pioneer of using locally-grown ingredients for both nutritional and environmental purposes, Cote transformed a nearly 175-year-old, historic two-building property at the corner of Main and Pine into a seasonally-driven restaurant and market that will showcase the local area’s bounty. The a la carte menu features rotating mains and sides, using ingredients sourced from Eden East Farm and other Bastrop producers.

About the restaurant
Nightcap was originally conceived as a place for sweet sustenance and sparkling cocktails. Since then, we have evolved into so much more. Our space is now known as a late night, date night spot for guests and friends alike. The cozy atmosphere is welcoming, romantic and is also a great place to dine solo. It’s a space to make new friends, enjoy some incredibly tasteful food and cocktails that aim to please. Nightcap carries an old school Austin vibe that is hard to be classified as a bar or restaurant. We like to consider ourselves as a nightly dinner party at your friends house. The idea is to come over, have a great time and let us clean up afterwards. On special occasions, glitter is our favorite color that is often paired with bubbles. We hope you join us for any occasion and truly enjoy your evening.

A very pleasant meal. We had a group of five for a working meeting. It was a good location for this. There was a band, relatively loud, but they were outside and the music did not intrude much into the interior area.
