You’ve heard of farm-to-table—it’s all the rage right now among Austin’s New American fine-dining hotspots. Well, East Austin outpost Jacoby’s—a purposefully rustic-looking indoor-outdoor restaurant and connected market focused on artisan goods—is pushing a slightly different concept: ranch-to-table. That’s because their fantastically delicious fare, which hinges on hormone- and antibiotic-free, hand-cut and dry-aged beef, is produced at the Jacoby family’s own ranch in Melvin, TX. Sure, their dishes aren’t as creatively outlandish as some comparably priced joints (we’re talking mainly high-quality burgers and steaks here), but trust: owner Adam Jacoby, executive chef Albert Gonzalez and the rest of their team have crafted a variety of menu items that deliver a bang for your buck while retaining decidedly homemade qualities (on top of two types of cheddar, the mac n’ cheese has savory cheese curds in it, ya’ll).
