Austin Grill Seems to Have Closed

As Brian pointed out in the comments below, Austin Grill seems to have closed its doors here in Bethesda. If that is correct, it is a bit of a shame as I quite liked their reasonable prices and nice outdoor seating area. I found AG to be a decent place for a couple of drinks, chips and salsa on a summer’s evening. I don’t know the reason for the closing (if that is what it is) but perhaps the combination of Uncle Julio’s and  Tia Queta proved to be too much competition in their niche?

When I walked past their (old) premises a couple of days ago I noticed that there was a refurbishment going on inside and Brian mentioned in the comments below that an American Tap Room may be filling the void. We’ll check it out and get back to you with more details.

Would you be happy to see a Tap Room in that spot if AG has infact closed its doors in downtown Bethesda?

    Man — first Anthropologie now Austin Grill? How sad.

    Isn’t Austin Grill owned by the same folks who own Jaleo?

    Oh no! I didn’t realize they had closed. First Levantes, Uno’s and now Austin Grill .. what is going on? Where else can you go for some Tex-Mex and $5 margarita’s in Bethesda?

    Its true. If you go to American Tap Room’s website, under locations, it lists Austin Grill’s address and says they will be open this summer.

    I’m not complaining about this one. There are so many good places to eat in this town – this wasn’t one of them!
