Mean Eyed Cat is a tribute to both Johnny Cash and the owner’s father. It opened in September 2004 in the old Cut-Rite chainsaw shack and is surrounded by both a 300-year-old tree and whistling railroad tracks. Come on in and have a beer, grab a bite to eat, put a dollar in the jukebox, and let Johnny kick up some honky-tonk dust!
The Austin Creative Alliance is funded in part by the City of Austin through the Economic Development Department's Cultural Arts Division and by grants from Texas Commission on the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts which believes that a great nation deserves great art. The Creative Alliance also receives generous in-kind support from CreateAustin, and Time Warner Cable News. We are also grateful for the ongoing support and participation of our members and patrons.
