Cain & Abel’s, located on corner of 24th Street and Rio Grande, is a well-known place to students at the University of Texas. With that said, don’t be surprised if most of the goers are college students. Especially during the fall semester during football season, Cain’s is packed. However, if you’re in the mood for strong drinks at a chill bar located in the heart of West Campus, Cain’s is your best bet.

Most widely known for their Thursday Texas Teas from those outside their regular patron circle, I would recommend just coming here on Thursday. Their Texas Teas at a little hefty at $8, but it’s gigantic and very strong. I would equate the strength of their drinks to those at Trudy’s. Pricey, but you get a lot.

Its bar food is very mediocre, so I would actually suggest eating beforehand to save yourself a couple of bucks. With a Plucker’s located one block down, I would much rather eat there. There’s also outdoor seating and pool area with plenty of TVs. Cain’s dollar beer on Tuesday nights is very popular, however, I find the crowd that night to be too overwhelming for me.

    I love their Texas Teas. For them, when they get really busy they can run out of well liquor and provide a top shelf alternative. Well, this happened once and I’ve been hoping for the same since.

  • I agree that Cain & Abel’s is situated in an ideal location, close to campus and offering patio seating. But I know that seeing the hoards of fraternity and sorority students there makes me think twice about going. That atmosphere is a legitimate factor to be considered.

    It sounds like the overwhelming atmosphere might trump the prices here. It’s close to campus, but that means hordes of students in the evenings. Sometimes, I’d rather pay an extra two dollars for peace and quiet.

    in all my years at UT, i have never been to Cain and Abel’s. But i hear great things about their texas tea. Maybe i’ll finally give it a try.

    I totally agree with all of yall about the overwhelming atmosphere. I specifically avoid it during football games and Tuesday nights. I last went around 6 on a Thursday and it was surprisingly deserted. But, whew, that Texas tea!
