The Crown and Anchor was my favorite bar when I was going to UT. It was close to campus, had two quarter operated pool tables that were heavily competed for, really good cheap burger baskets, and good beer.
I still go to C&A at least once a month to get my cheap burger fix (screw fast food burger joints!). They are made to order and come with skinny fries. The crew is friendly and the burgers are delivered to your table pretty fast.
They have a pretty good beer selection on draft and more in bottles. They usually have sports on TV, and I think there's a dart board league that meets up there. You can bring your dog on the patio. Plus, as I've gotten a little older, it's fun to check out the college kids and hear what the next generation is up to.

Best cheap burger and fries in Austin. Fast food prices for excellent bar food. Great beer selection. It can get a little "collegy" for my old ass, this is to be expected due to its location, but generally, this is an awesome place to get a laid back beer and burger.

This place is fairly close to some of the universities in the area & attracts quite a few the students during the school year. A good sized outdoor seating area is available, as well as indoor seating and a small bar. It is a very casual atmosphere, with TVs, dartboard and a pool table to help out the entertainment factor. The staff is friendly and quick, busy nights do not seem to faze them. As far as beer, they carry a good variety of Texas beers such as Real Ale, Live Oak, 512 and then stuff from the rest of the country like Deschutes, Sierra Nevada and quite a few macro selections. I had a burger, which hit the spot and went well with some Texas craft brew. A solid option for some good local beer and casual pub fare while in Austin.

The entry was on San Jacinto at East 30th Street. A long, wide outdoor area encircled the outside of the place. Entering, the short 3/8 octagon-shaped, blue Formica bar was right with a cooler of 90 bottles and 30 drafts as the back bar. Colored chalkboards detailed all of the available beers. Headed left were a couple of green-felt pool tables and two English-style dartboards. Women's lavs to right, men's lavs out and left. Despite the selection, I was unimpressed by the service, plus I felt like I could drink more pleasantly elsewhere.
