The words “upscale” and “bar food” don’t tend to go hand-in-hand, but somehow Contigo has mastered the concept perfectly. This East Austin gem has a spacious patio filled with wooden benches, fire pits, and has a partially covered area with ceiling fans. This is the perfect meetup to enjoy margaritas and beer while chowing down on unique bites like Texas okra, daily fresh sausage, and ox tongue sliders. Contigo’s serves lunch and dinner Monday through Saturday and midday brunch on Sundays.
