About The Best Wurst

The Best Wurst has been a staple fixture of Austin’s 6th street since the early 90’s. The original business dubbed Flamin’ Hots by Syracuse transplants Steve and Pam Novelli, set up in the doorway of a dubious jewelry-pawn shop that is currently the location for Scruffy’s convenient store. In those days, the only other food vendor was Johnny Johnson and his hot dog carts. A crazed character that boasted about his being set up in the Federal Witness Protection Program, Johnny eventually disappeared. In1995, friend and fellow Syracuse transplant Jon Notarthomas took over operations where Best Wurst settled on 6th and San Jacinto, its current location. Now, Best Wurst is one of the oldest continuously running businesses in the famed party district. Pick from your choice of bratwurst, pepperwurst, smoked Italian pork, smoked jalapeno, all beef or GMO-free vegan link, piled deep into a bun and topped off with grilled onions, steamed sauerkraut, and a variety of house-made sauces. A rotating swath of seasonal sides gives you a reason to come back regularly, and get a different taste every time. If you need an excuse, at least. MUST TRY
  • Pomme Frites - a Belgian classic sent straight to Texas, giving your sandwiches a side that deserves to hog the whole spotlight altogether.
