Something About us
About Austin Eats.
Hello. I’m Dave, and this is Austin Eats.
Austin Eats is all about great cooking, Texas style. That means lots of meat and bold flavors, and all made from scratch with fresh ingredients. There is also a fair amount of fire involved. Austin, TX has some great food, no doubt about it. I am recreating some of my local favorites like wood-fired pizzas, double cut pork chops, carnitas, smoky tenderloins, fire roasted salsas, smoky slow roasted barbecue, fresh pastas, terrific tacos, awesome cheeseburgers, unbelievable BBQ and more.
I publish new videos on Saturday, but may publish more often if I am really excited about something. So please check out my channel, and let me know if you have any questions.
Great cooking, Texas style.

Even after you eat it, it stays with you – always.
For many years, all I could cook were burgers, steaks and hot dogs on a barbecue. Half the time, I burned them to a crisp. Somewhere along the way I realized that I could follow a recipe and cook anything IF there was a picture. Men are visual, what can I say. After that, I began to cook all kinds of things and fell in love with pizza. Wow, did I make a lot of pizza.
When I retired, I moved to Austin, TX and built a wood-fired pizza oven in my backyard. That’s when I combined my passion for cooking with my passion for photography, and the Austin Eats YouTube channel and this website were born.
For the record, I am not a chef. I’m just a guy who likes to cook for family and friends, and take pictures. While many of my dishes might look complicated and intimidating, I assure you that they are all really quite easy. If you can cut an onion, you can make any recipe on this website. Heck, if this old grandpa can do it, you can do it too. Take a chance and cook something that you have never done before. I dare you.
