Paleo-friendly restaurants
  • Live Oak BBQ (on east 2nd, just before Pleasant Valley Rod)
  • Sprout's – Round Rock, TX
  • Lick  (grassfed ice cream) – 2032 South Lamar Blvd
  • Vivo – I-35 & Manor. I get the beef or chicken filet and sub pico and guac for the rice and beans. Also delicious margaritas (I get sugar free) and gluten free tortilla chips (not paleo but I allow myself to eat them once a month or so as a treat)
  • Quality Seafood – Airport and 2222. Raw oysters, salads, fresh fish meal specials and a great fish market.
  • Riviera Bistro – Bee Caves. I haven't been but the entire restaurant is gluten free and I'm sure they will work with you, too.
  • Thai Fresh and Thrice (2 restaurants in one) – Most of the menu is gluten and dairy free naturally. One of the owners has a wheat allergy so they are very knowledgeable. I replace rice with fresh vegetables. Meats are local and grass fed. (Also they have coconut milk ice cream and many vegan, gluten-free treats.)
  • Tarka – several locations. Owned by the same people that own Clay Pit. Still Indian food but faster and cheaper than Clay Pit. The lamb coconut curry is gluten and dairy free. I add vegetables to my curry and ask for no rice. 
  • East Side Showroom – quality ingredients. Chef will work with you.
  • Wholly Cow – South Lamar and Manchaca. Grass fed beef burgers. Can get a burger with portobella caps for a bun.
  • La Condesa – downtown. Chef will work with you, knowledgeable about gluten.
  • Maudies – several locations. Gluten free menu and will work with you. (Make sure you ask for the gluten free chips if you eat them.) Fajitas without tortillas and salads. Brunch options like huevos rancheros with potatoes, no beans.
  • Chuys – several locations. Server was knowledgeable about gluten (which is in almost everything here so definitely ask). I was happy with a salad with extra ground beef and extra guacamole.
  • New India – 2304 South Congress Ave. Menu marked for gluten and vegan options. Great curries; I don't get the rice. I have splurged on their gluten-free but grain-full bread (naan substitute) and the calamari pakoda which is fried calamari (gluten free but do use chickpea flour). Be careful, this place is spicy and pricey but I love it.
  • Red's Porch – S. Lamar. Gluten free menu and they will work with you. For brunch I had brisket hash with potatoes, fried eggs, peppers. Ask for it without the toast (although it still ended up on the side of my plate, I ate around it). You can also get bunless burgers, etc.
  • Elizabeth St Cafe – 1501 S. First Street. I haven't been yet but quality ingredients (local meat) and I'm sure they will work with you. I want to try the pho without noodles and extra meat and veggies added. I will double check about soy and MSG though. 
  • Wild Wood Bakehouse – 3016 Guadalupe. I haven't been yet. The entire restaurant is gluten free and the menu has dairy free items marked. Vegan, soy free and organic products available. I've heard the brunch is great. Local meat. ($3 Omission beer happy hour if you allow that. I used to drink it- great tasting beer but not 100% gluten free)

There are a few Whole Foods.

I have found a wonderful BBQ place in East Austin- Live Oak BBQ, on East 2nd just before Pleasant Valley Rd.  I think they are the best in Austin, and they source their meats locally, even putting the name of the farm they come from on the menu.  Salt and Time, a butcher shop that has been just available at the Farmer's Markets also uses local sources, and is opening a brick and mortar store on East 7th St early next year.  I have a lot of doubts about organic foods available in stores, as the organic refers to how it is raised.  I get most of our food from Farmer's Markets, my CSA and especially Bogy Creek Farm at 3414 Lyons Rd.  Market is 9-1 on Mondays and Wednesdays, and you are a few feet from where your food was grown.

I absolutely adore the Farmers Market out at Lakeline Mall on Saturdays from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. I think its size has actually surpassed that of the Barton Creek location. There's also a FANTASTIC blogger you can follow who lives in the Austin area. She's the author of Well Fed (best cookbook ever), and her website is The Clothes Make the Girl. Here's the link where she talks about possible paleo food options in the Austin area: ** you don't have permission to see this link **.

Hope that helps!

I've had good luck around town. It's amazing how accommodating restaurants are if you just ask! I like to email them before I go if I can. Esp if I'm going with a large group or at a busy time of day. Below I mention vegan because it means dairy-free…

We are in Austin and would love to meet other families with kids who are eating Paleo.  We have been doing it about 7 months and have a 10 year old who is eating this way for an autoimmune disorder.  It's working great for him so we are pretty committed.  It would be nice to share tips, potluck, etc. and meet other kids who eat this way.

 

Cheers,

Michelle
