Bacon Maple Bar Doughnut from Voodoo Doughnuts
Portland’s Voodoo Doughnut opened it’s doors on 6th Street in October with tons of awesome, different flavors. The Bacon Maple Bar is not only one of my favorite doughnuts at Voodoo, but one of my favorite bacon dishes in all of Austin.

Johnny Hash from Biscuits + Groovy
You had me at biscuits. But seriously, Biscuits + Groovy has some crazy good items on their menu with a lot of delicious bacon options. The Johnny Hash (bottom dish) is one of their best sellers with biscuits, gravy, potatoes, thick sliced peppered maple bacon, sausage and Colby Jack cheese. Hang on, my mouth is watering…

Bacon Waffle from Bacon
Yes. There is a restaurant called Bacon in Austin and they serve up some awesome, you guessed it, bacon dishes. Try the Bacon Waffle which is stuffed with thick bacon bits and topped with bananas. I got an extra slab of bacon on top because, bacon. Another go-to is the Broken Yolk BLT or the Bacon Reuben.

Red Headed Stranger Bloody Mary from Frank
Frank is known for serving up some crazy good hot dogs, but the Red Headed Stranger is one of their signature cocktails with Bacon infused Tito’s vodka, Frank Bloody Mary mix, Frank signature seasoned salt and dressed with bacon, cheddar cheese, jalapeño stued olive, and pepperoncini. It comes in both 12oz and 16oz sizes. I recommend getting the 16oz and when it gets a little watery at the end start pouring in an Austin Beerworks Pearl Snap and thank me later.
