Truluck's - Austin
With 10 locations in Florida and Texas, Truluck's positions itself as the type of restaurant to celebrate special occasions. It boasts a traditional steakhouse setting, which attracts a healthy dose of business diners as well as after-work revelers.
The menu at the Austin location in the Arboretum is comprised of Florida Stone crabs (when they are in season) and of course the usual steaks and chops that are served with a choice of Parmesan mashed potatoes, steamed asparagus, garlic wilted spinach, sautéed green beans or rice pilaf. Meat highlights include the center-cut filet, prime New York strip and Angus all-natural churrasco steak. A gluten-free menu offers a number of options as well, such as seafood disheds, steamed asparagus and fresh macerated berries.
Happy hour happens 4:30-6:30pm daily in the stone crab lounge, with revelers enjoying half-price cocktails, featured wines and appetizers. There is also nightly live music.
