Hoover Alexander presents some of the best Southern Style Home Food in the area. I have gone there many times for lunch & dinner. It’s always excellent! If possible save some room for desert!

We frequent Austin about twice a year and always stop in Hoovers . This was the first time we had their breakfast. I was surprised that nothing on the menu was "unique". When you go expect very traditional breakfast options.

We were heading toward Eastside but it wasn't open so we went to Hoovers. A delightful traditional breakfast was had here with wonderful eggs, bacon, pancakes, and garlic cheese grits. The menu is expansive for breakfast with many choices from Migas to omelets. We had...More
