This totally unpretentious and laid back bar screams best dive bar in Austin. With a good number of bartenders on staff at once, you'll never have to wait too long for your drinks, which won't cost very much. The back patio is great and often has live music. Definitely one of Austin's best dives.



  • Super relaxed atmosphere, super cheap drinks, and they make them VERY strong.
  • Sit out on the back patio, have a pitcher of Lone Star and grub on the fried pickles or chili cheese waffle fries.
  • Austin, the bartender bartender is the shit.
  • You have to get chips and queso woth the hot sauce! OMG better than any mexican restaurant I've been to
  • You will have a "bender " if you hang our here! They will funk you up for sure!
  • Happy hour is good. Not a gay bar more of a blue collar place with good bar food
  • Just do it
  • What's not to love? Delicious food, cheap and strong drinks and close-by for when I drink 3 too many.
  • Happy hour is great here, cheaper than Crow bar. Tuesdays is $0.50 wing night, & that is the best day to come to Bender!
  • Always a good time!!
  • Always a pleasure being a patron at one of Marcos's bars
  • Great prices, great beer selection, surprisingly decent food for a bar. Feeling good in the neighborhood!
  • Awesome local neighborhood bar. Chill vibe and great jukebox!
  • Best $5 Long Island!!!!
  • Cheap beer and wells , food is good. The jukebox rocks and the atmosphere is great, no frat douchers here.
  • Lol not a gay bar. Cheap drinks though.
  • Fried pickles!
  • Yeah, totally not a gay bar. Who wrote that? Nothing wrong with gay bars though. Their food is great and drinks are cheap!
  • Recent Pinball machines in great condition.
  • Cold beer!
