While nearby Austin offers a world of culinary options, jumping in the car and hopping on US-290 isn’t necessary if you’re after a good meal. There are plenty of fantastic culinary creations worth exploring right here in Dripping Springs.
If you’re looking for a good meal that will satisfy your taste buds, consider pulling up a chair at one of these local eateries.
A World of Flavors
Dripping Springs has some fantastic barbecue and Tex-Mex joints, but if you’re after something a bit more adventurous, you won’t have to look far.
“A dance on the taste buds” is the motto of Natkhat Flavors. The local Indian restaurant offers a full menu of curries, wraps, smoothies, and classic Indian dishes like tikka masala and butter chicken. The restaurant’s menu is geared towards healthy options for sensitive nutrition needs, but most of all, customers seem to agree that the food is simply delicious.
Crepes are commonly thought of as a breakfast or dessert food, and while Crepe Crazy does offer some fantastic sweet options, its savory options are just as noteworthy. Scroll the menu of this local favorite, and you’ll discover crepes in a variety of culinary twists ranging from Norweigian to Mexican, Mediterranian, and, of course, classic French flavors.
Texas may be known as the Lone Star state, but it could easily be known as the distillery state with the number of craft distilleries currently operating. A favorite in Dripping Springs is Deep Eddy Vodka. Established in 2010, Deep Eddy has quickly made a name for itself with a range of carefully crafted vodkas that incorporate unique flavors like ruby red grapefruit and sweet tea. Swing by Thursday through Sunday for a tasting and see what all the fuss is about.
While we’re on the subject of Dripping Springs originals, we’d be remiss not to pay a little attention to Texas Hill Country Olive Co. Cara Gambini and her father, John, began the company back in 2008, and since then, it’s expanded to include not only some of the best olive oils and balsamic vinegars around, but an on-site bistro too.
From the Farm to the Table
You don’t always know where your food is coming from, but that’s never the case at two of the most popular restaurants in Dripping Springs.
Homespun Kitchen and Bar is a farm-to-table style restaurant “with both European and American influences.” What that means is that everything from the fried green tomatoes to the catfish platter or steak sandwich can be traced back to a nearby farm. With a fresh menu that offers something for everyone and drinks specials like Margarita Mondays, it’s easy to see why Homespun is a hometown favorite.
Likewise, Tillie’s offers a farm-to-table menu that’s sure to satisfy whether you’re stopping in for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Because the menu is dependent on what’s in season, it changes throughout the year. Not only does this mean patrons will be getting a dish crafted with the freshest of ingredients, but they can rest assured the menu will be anything but boring.
The wide variety of dining options is one of the many aspects that make Dripping Springs such a wonderful place to live. If you’d like to find a home here, reach out to the Caliterra team to learn more about our inventory of available homes.
