The History Behind Hank’s

The northeast Austin restaurant’s namesake honors Henri, the grandfather of co-owner Andy Means. Henri was affectionately nicknamed “Hank” by his family and friends. He was fun-loving and loved to entertain, often hosting lively parties. Andy hopes that his patrons feel Hank’s welcoming spirit whenever they visit!
