This is one of my two favorite restaurants in Austin, largely for the amazing food and the "slow lane" dining experience. First the unusual / slightly restrictive part of this place: This is a restaurant that is run as a labor of love out of what appears to be Ronnie's living room. They do one seating per day, and serve... More

Ronnie provides the personal touch that comes from offering a different fixed menu each week. The selection is either meat, fish or vegetarian. Reservations are required. It's a small place in a woodsy setting. Bring your own wine. No corkage fee and stemware is provided. It's a great value for a quality gourmet meal.

You'll have to make... More

The restaurant is located on the outskirts of Austin, TX, really out in the country, in a small house in a wooded area. It... More

We've never been to any place like Ronnie's, which seems to be an Austin insiders' treasure. It's a small building located among trees in the rolling hills west of town. The concept is unusual - Ronnie posts the 4-course, prix fixe menu online (soup, entree, salad & dessert) ahead of time; the entree includes a meat course & a vegetarian... More
