Date Night at backYARD Bar: A Valentine’s Day Meal That Doesn’t Mess Around

 You’re going to wow any valentine with the Lone Star-centric cuisine at backYARD Bar. Chef Lonny Huot executes bold-flavored wizardry inside our ‘60s-era Airstream Overlander outside the Sheraton Austin, whipping up chili con queso, beer-braised short ribs, YARD burgers, and other crowd-pleasing dishes. With its fresh and local ingredients, signature spice mixes and house rubs, and all-around dynamism, Chef Lonny’s menu can more than hold its own with any hoity-toity establishment in town.

These are zesty, sometimes fiery flavors—the kind that kindle romance. And what better with which to toast romance than a pint of local craft beer or a signature house cocktail?


Live Music & Games to Spice Up the Evening in the backYARD

The way we feed and lubricate you alone would put us right at the top of the Valentine’s Day dining heap, but here at backYARD Bar we also make sure we’re entertaining you as well. The evening soundtrack comes courtesy of some of the Live Music Capital of the World’s best and brightest, because Texas-style fare comes best served with a side of electric guitar.

Throw in plenty of convivial bar games, and you’ve got the makings of an authentic Austin Valentine’s Day spectacular. And don’t worry: If it’s just some high-quality one-on-one, gazing-into-each-other’s-eyes-over-fabulous-food time you’re after, the backYARD can be as intimate and tucked-away feeling as anything.

Here’s the deal, though: We’ve got plenty of lovebirds heading our way for the evening of February 14th, so you’d do well to drop us a line and make a reservation so you can stake out the best seats in the house for the occasion.
