Austin >Nau's Enfield Drug
Ah, the time-honored tradition of getting a chocolate malt at the drugstore. It never gets old, does it? Especially when faced with other adult indignities in the same setting, like purchasing hemorrhoid cream, or perhaps an actual douche -- but fortunately, the thick, luscious folds of Nau's chocolate malt shake have a way of making even the most embarrassing drugstore trips worthwhile ones.
Feeling nostalgic? Nau's is the perfect place to step back into old-time Austin. Pharmacy, convenient store and lunch spot counter in one!
It's been tucked away in the Clarksville neighborhood for decades. This pharmacy and drugstore has an old fashioned soda shop housed inside with one of the city's best shakes and burgers.
Old-School Diner. Burgers are great here if you get the "big" version and make it a double. Otherwise you might be let down. The patties are thin and the "regular" size of the bun is small. The sandwiches are decent mainly due to the good price points. No french fries which was disappointing but they do have homemade malts and shakes that are delicious and nostalgic. Service is horribly slow if you go during lunch but if you have the time then it is worth the wait. I would recommend going in the later afternoon.
A small-town drugstore in the big city..
With wooden, church pew-style booths, mint-green tabletops, curved soda bar and swivel stools, this pharmacy feels like it must have when the Nau brothers opened it in 1951. Diner grub includes breakfast tacos, omelettes, burgers and grilled sandwiches, plus made-from-scratch malts, shakes, sundaes and ice cream sodas. The bacon cheeseburger is formed from freshly ground beef and grilled till it's tender-pink inside and crispy-brown outside, and finished with crunchy bacon and melted American cheese.
