Silo fries
Silo fries

There’s a huge movement going on in east Austin. A drinking and eating movement. New restaurants and bars are popping up all over that area just shy of I-35. Eat east is the hashtag that’s been given to the movement. Search it on instagram I dare you. Many are discovering the many places between 5th and 7th where they can eat, drink and enjoy a patio when the weather is nice. With so many places how does one choose? It’s very hard but one place that’s doing #EatEast right is the Silo on Seventh. 

Drive on 7th St and you’ll see a huge silo with the number 7 painted on it, stop in, you won’t regret it. With a bottom and top patio you can enjoy the outdoors while eating and drinking. They have plenty to offer like their burger of the month specials, silo fries, deep-fried deviled eggs, wings (which on Monday evenings are .50 ea), fried green tomatillos, jalapeño poppers, burgers, tacos and sandwiches (sandys). 

When a place names an appetizer after its establishment you know it’s going to be good. They give you a big ol mess of fries smothered with bacon, chopped leeks and shallots, queso fresco, two over-easy eggs and served with a side of cayenne ketchup. Doesn’t that sound awesome. Well guess what else is awesome, you can enjoy those fries at 1/2 off during happy hour from 4pm to 7pm daily, yes seven days a week. They must really like the number seven here. With a majority of their apps being half off you can enjoy a few different plates with friends. 

Happy hour from 4-7 EVERYDAY. 

Monday night is wing special for $.50 from 4-10. 

Tuesday is service industry all day.
