My son moved to the Heights recently so we've walked to Onion Creek a couple of times. We've always felt safe in the area. The restaurant decor is fun and inviting. They have great drinks & beer choices. I have liked the food every visit & it's always fresh & plated nicely. Order at the bar & they'll bring it... More

This is the second time we gathered in this Coffee House and while it suppose to be really hip, the food is just ok. My Brussel Sprouts were $8.00 for a small small bowl with half of it being cauliflower ( on the mane in tiny letters). The beer on draft also $8 - $10. The Ruben was just OK........ More

All of these Onion Creek places always have vagrants close by. The owners also own a trailer park across the street from the Onion Creek place at West Nineteenth Street and Beall. Lots of cars get broken into over there. Avoid Craig Holcomb and his establishments.

Onion Creek is a casual and Austinesque type of atmosphere. The food, however, is tasty and flavorful. I had the veggie tacos, and these are wonderful. Cyclist and runners alike frequent here on Saturday mornings. The service can be a bit slow, do pass them up if that is an issue for you

Great food friendly service. Foodie from NY food was very good. We had chicken and waffles, tacos and eggs. Frozen mimosa and Bloody Mary shouldn't be missed.

The food and drinks here are awesome! I love the the atmosphere. The staff is a bit snotty to me but not intolerable and it is totally offset by the food!

We used to go here often because we like our beer just as much as we like our dog, so this was a nice place where we could take our mutt and have a nice cold one in the patio... and it's still an OK place don't get me wrong... but I get the feeling they stopped trying and now... More
