Even settled smack dab in the middle of a sea of construction and massive freeways, high schoolers will still find a way to eat food that doesn’t come from their cafeteria. Here’s a list of some of the most popular restaurants and cafes LASA students break the speed limit for:

Bennu Coffee
If you are looking to get your caffeine and calorie fix in one place, check out Bennu Coffee. It’s a cute little coffee shop with a pleasant work environment. This cute little coffee shop has a pleasant work environment and is open 24 hours a day, every day of the week. They pride themselves on having fair-trade coffee and locally sourced ingredients, with a diverse selection of treats alongside their strong coffee. They do not limit themselves to just the typical array of coffee shop items; they have both lunch and dinner options. This casual café is a great option for hungry students looking for a caffeinated beverage to boost their energy throughout the day.

Taco Shack
Breakfast tacos are an austinite staple food and Taco Shack is as classic a place to get them as it was when it was established in 1996. Many LASA students go there for breakfast because its 6:30 a.m. opening time means they can grab a bite to eat without being tardy. Taco Shack brings together fast food and quality ingredients in a way that is accessible and attractive to high schoolers all around Austin.

Torchy’s Tacos
Torchy’s is a common location for friendly group gatherings for all Austinites. It’s a great spot to hang out or study for a test with some friends, as long as you don’t get queso on anything! Torchy’s hours of 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. make it hard to get tacos in the morning before school, but it’s definitely possible to go during an off period, during lunch, or after school. Unfortunately, due to its popularity in Austin, it may take a little while to place orders, but the good service and food compensate for the few extra minutes you might have to wait.

P. Terry’s
Another highly acclaimed fast food restaurant among LASA students is P. Terrys. This is due to many different aspects of their service, though the most important is certainly their burgers. Although they are mostly known for their classic fries and shakes, they offer a few different breakfast options as well. Their 7 a.m. opening time may be too late to grab food before school without an off period, but it is one of the most common senior lunch destinations. They have a wide array of lunch and dinner options and offer an ever-rotating selection of milkshake flavors.
