Being new to Austin, I was pleased to discover Dan Mcklusky's Restaurant and Bar. It has been around for 26 years, according to the owner, who was introduced to me as “Dan McKlusky”, a nice enough fellow with a Greekish accent who probably would not look good in a kilt.
After 2 lunches within a week, I was impressed by the New York atmosphere - dark woods, white cloth napkins, and professional (not students, chums or riffraff) solicitous waiters in white shirts, black ties and black aprons. Not noisy or crowded, to me it was the perfect place for a quick and calm lunch.
The food overall: very good. We tried the 7oz fairly moist and tasty (yes, CSTROMBE) flame-broiled Cheeseburger ($8) on a well prepared Kaiser roll that came with a side (I chose the large tasty onion rings, not greasy, though “frozen”), a steak sandwich with melted cheese on a nice elongated roll ($8.50) with steamed vegetables, a cup of nice thick seafood bisque ($2.50), house salads and wonderful, tender and juicy, medium rare prime rib ($11 for 1 or 2 for $17 prime). The steaks, which I haven’t tried yet, are in the $10-$15 range (and I bet they’re good).
Great value all in all...
