Austin >The Dogwood
The Dogwood Burger and Chicken and Waffle Sliders!!!!.
The addition of food at The Dogwood has been long awaited! They started serving food just before SXSW and it has generated a great buzz for superb bar food.
The Dogwwod Burger is 8 ounces of hand crafted Black Angus beef, fried green tomatoes, white queso, lettuce, pickles, onions, and served on a jalapeno-cheddar bun. Yum!
The Chicken and Waffle Sliders are outstanding! You get (2) whole pieces of golden fried chicken breast between (4) fluffy buttermilk waffles that makes (2) massive sliders. Homemade peach preserves give a nice southern touch to this dish.
The Fried Green Tomato Stack is another favorite of mine. You get (4) layers of perfectly fried green tomatoes with goat cheese and crab meat on each layer. It's served with a house Remoulade that is to die for!
There are many other that are very appealing. These are my top three choices so far.
The $5 Burger special on Monday's are now on my Monday To Do List. 1/2 lb burgers for for $5 dollars and great service...Thank You...Yes Please.
Great W 6th bar!. The Dogwood is a fun, upbeat bar in the W 6th District, geared toward young professionals, but attracting the 20-40-something crowd and lots of attractive girls and guys. Half of the bar is outside, surrounding a huge rectangular bar, and the other half is inside. The finish-out is well-done, with great lighting and outdoor fans to keep you cool in the summer. There are TVs within view from virtually every spot in the bar, so it is a good place to watch the game, or to go to after watching a UT football game. It is also a good happy hour spot, or one of the only hopping spots on W 6th on Thursday nights. This bar is trendy, but not snooty, and definitely not a flash in the pan. I highly recommend.
Citysearch Editorial Review. Occupying the former Mother Egan’s space on West 6th Street is The Dogwood from the Womack brothers, Brad, Chad and Wes and their childhood friend, Jason Carrier. It is named after the brothers’ Southern grandmother’s favorite tree. Raised in Georgia, these boys truly are southern gentleman and natural hosts. They have had a presence in the Austin bar scene for nine years starting on the east end of Congress Ave (i.e. the home to the infamous college bars). Now they are expanding their empire onto the west side of 6th Street (i.e. the grown up side attracting the 30-something crowd). No frat boys here or velvet ropes for that matter. The Dogwood is “Keeping Austin Weird,” shorts and flip flops welcomed. They built The Dogwood from the ground up as a place to come and chill. It’s indoor/outdoor with an emphasis on the outdoor. A center island bar anchors the 4,000 square foot space occupied by natural woods and limestone native to Texas. No fancy drink concoctions here, but exclusively they have Deep Eddy Vodka on tap served ice cold. The boys are sticking to what they know, drinks, and have no plans to utilize the kitchen left behind by Mother Egan’s. Hungry, have no fear, Wahoo’s Fish Taco and Whole Foods Market are just a stone’s throw away.
