ATLAS: vol 1. Austin, TX–At Ranch 616, Texas-Style Icehouse

Weird enough for this town.

Certainly no shortage of neon at Ranch 616.  Worth notice is an air-conditioning duct turned piss-mean snake sculpture, complete with flashing neon-red tongue.  There’s an arched tin canopy over the patio, and, adjacent, a 15-foot high, neon-yellow, six-shooter sculpture.  Inside, the neon relaxes, now a dull blue emanating from a three-foot-by-five-foot Modelo beer sign.

The rib-eye is smokey and deeply flavorful, but the mashed potatoes would be better without the cheese and bacon.
