Austin Restaurant Weeks is back and we love this event because it raises lots of money for an incredible cause. The two-week-long dining extravaganza featuring specially priced lunches, dinners, and cocktails at hot spots throughout the greater Austin area is a fundraiser for the Central Texas Food Bank.

For restaurateurs, it’s a great opportunity to help fight hunger while providing diners who might not be regular patrons with an easy, economical way to dine with them. And for diners, it’s a way to help our neighbors in need while enjoying some of the best dishes this amazing, food-driven city has to offer.

Check out all of the participating restaurants—there is so much to choose from this year!

When: August 15–September 2, 2019
