Top Notch Hamburgers

2 saves

Austin, United States • Recommendation • 

“Alright, alright, alright!” That’s right, the Top Notch drive-in burger joint from ‘Dazed and Confused’ perfectly encapsulates the spot teens on their last day of school hit up for a big juicy burger and a thick milkshake. Top Notch has been serving good ol’ fashioned burgers since 1971 and they’re not stopping any time soon.

The Omelettry

1 save

Austin, United States • Recommendation • 

The halfway mark through Tarantino’s iconic 10 films, ‘Death Proof,’ has a scene where all the leading ladies have breakfast at a little diner down the road. The Omelettry, as the name suggests, specializes in all things breakfast, so order up a big old plate of omelettes and some pancakes while trying your best at Tarantino dialogue with the very friendly staff.

The Continental Club

1 save

Austin, United States • Recommendation • 

Two iconic scenes from Richard Linklater’s filmography take place at the renowned Continental Club, first as the backdrop of indie film ‘Slacker’ and second as one night of the 12 years it took to film ‘Boyhood.’ It’s not a requirement to ponder too hard on life here, though. You could just very well order a drink and let loose to some live music!

Mean Eyed Cat

1 save

Austin, United States • Recommendation • 

Although chainsaws and blades adorn the walls of the Mean Eyed Cat, you can’t buy any horror-slasher staples like you’ve seen in ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2.’ Although it stood as the Cut Rite Chainsaws hardware store in the film, it’s actually a bar in real life where you can get a hefty serving of their world famous BBQ from their on-site restaurant Metcalf BBQ.

Roppolo’s Pizzeria

1 save

Austin, United States • Recommendation • 

Roppolo’s Pizzeria makes a brief cameo in Drew Barrymore’s ‘Whip It.’ During a couple’s playful montage, they make a quick stop here for a slice of pizza, which is pretty much exactly what you can do here: grab a quick slice and continue living your best life. Dine-in customers are also very much welcome!

Baker St. Pub & Grill

1 save

Austin, United States • Recommendation • 

Grab some pub staples like fish and chips with a side of beer after a long day of work, and you’ll fit right in Office Space where overloaded white collar Peter bonds with the waitress over hating their jobs, but we recommend enjoying the company of your best friends instead!
