Austin Restaurants Open On Christmas Day

By

Thanksgiving is for turkey, dressing, and all the trimmings. After weeks of shopping and crowded stores, some people aren't in the mood for firing up the oven to cook that honey glazed ham, or turkey they just had last month. Or perhaps you are traveling. Either way, here is a list of Austin area restaurants that will be open on Christmas Day, and a few of my thoughts/comments.

 

1886 Cafe and Bakery

Driskill Hotel - brunch on Mezannine Level - Austins most famous hotel. I never had a bad meal there.

Chinatown on Mopac

Chon Som

El Arroyo - The most famous sign in town, and great drinks too.

European Bistro

Green Pastures - Go check out the peacocks on the back lawn. Always a fun stop.

Katz's Deli- Their saying is Katz's never closes. Well it is in January. Here's your chance to eat at this landmark before the open sign goes dark.

Hill Country Dining Room

Liberty Tavern

Luby's on Steck - Down the street from my office. Nothing says Texas cafeteria style like Luby's

Manny Hattan's - The restaurant that just keeps sticking around. A little New York style in Austin

McCormick and Schmick's at the Domain - A chain restaurant. But they only have a freezer big enough for dessert. Fresh food, great service and lots of variety.

Shanghai

Southwest Bistro at Hyatt Regency

TGI Friday's

Threadgill's  - An Austin icon for 77 years.

Trio - Yes, it's a hotel restaurant, but in the Four Seasons. Trio is easily one of the best five dining experiences in the city. The Mac n Cheese truffle should be illegal

Looks like you've done some folks a really great turn here. Not everybody wants to cook today and tomorrow!

Scott, Some useful information for your area!  We've done Thanksgiving out several times, but Christmas we're always out of town with family and don't have to worry about it!

Good idea posting the open restaurants, many people enjoy going out rather than cooking in.  And of course people of other religions will carry on their way

I think I have actually been to Katz's deli when I lived with my brother in South Austin in the summer of 1987.

Great idea! We just found out the Luby's in Round Rock closed at 2pm, so now we are headed to TGI Friday's on University in Round Rock since spending holiday in Pflugerville. Thanks!
