As if brunch wasn't already the most celebrated meal of the week, some genius figured out that when your head is doing a little pounding of its own, the best medicine is music! And not just any music, we’re talking Selena-meets-Morrissey-meets-Jay-Z. So, get down on some eggs Benny and let the music work its magic with these DJ-backed brunches.

Searsucker Austin


Searsucker knows how important brunch is, which is why they do it all day Sunday (10am-5pm). Select favorites like the pork belly hash (confit onions, corn, potatoes, fried egg) or the fiery Shrimp-N-Grits (more specifically, bacon grits!). The DJs this Sunday are Richard Gear and Mateo Thomas.

TnT Tacos and Tequila

TnT Tacos and Tequila

From 10am-3pm on Saturdays and Sundays, TnT offers an insane buffet with enchiladas, a build-your-own-taco bar, brisket, fresh grilled fish, omelets, waffles, eggs Benedict, migas, AND desserts. Phew. Combine that with mimosas and a little bumping ambiance, and you’re good to go! And then good to go home and nap.

Huge portions of delicious hangover medicine and cool patrons make Frank a favorite on Sundays from 10am-3pm. Where else can you stuff your face full of cheese grits, chicken & waffles, and various amazing chili-topped items while a DJ lulls you back into feeling whole again. Have a Red Headed Stranger to complete this experience.
