Taking care of those who’ve taken care of us along the way
Austin is where we’re from, and where we’ll always be. But more importantly, it’s where we live each and every day. It’s a community that we actively participate in — one that we don’t take for granted, and one that we always want to make better. Our family has been fortunate to have friends like you support us for decades, and it’s important to us that we contribute to life in Austin in impactful ways. We hope you’ll make a wish at the wishing well next time you’re here!
The Wishing Well
Since opening day in 1954, our iconic wishing well has caught pennies and coins in the center of our restaurant. Our family installed this wishing well to be the centerpiece of a mission to give back to the community that we’ve been lucky enough to serve. And that pay-it-forward spirit lives on.
Today, your donations support a number of different charitable initiatives in and around the Austin and Central Texas area. You can find more information on the charities we support below.
