Austin Top 25 Restaurants: September 2015

This is Foodable’s third release of Austin’s Top 25 restaurants, this month based on September data pulled from the Restaurant Social Media Index (RSMI), so it’s still too early to tell which establishments will stick around on a consistent basis.

This month, we welcome Jacoby’s Restaurant & Mercantile to the list at No. 6. The biggest fall in September was Counter 3. Five. VII, an establishment that takes service staff out of the equation, keeping things more intimate between guest to chef. It now stands at No. 16 from No. 3. Lucy’s Fried Chicken and Justine’s Brasserie both make big jumps to the No. 4 and No. 5 spots, respectively, and there is a new No. 1 debuting in the rankings this month!

Check out the full list below.
