As a resident of The Domain, I’m aware of all the exciting eateries opening, and heard buzz about The Yard Milkshake Bar. Wanting to see what all the fuss was about, I stopped by their small establishment to experience 20 minutes in line, and then a 20 minute wait for my pint of Peanut Butter Brownie Bliss to be created by the “dessert artists” who put together this masterpiece:
This dessert did provide the advertised “bliss”, but I’m not sure it was worth a 40 minute wait. As a longtime vegetarian, I’ve never been to Austin’s mega-famous Franklin Barbecue, however any Austinite is aware that Franklin is as famous for its long lines (3-4 hours!) as its food. Perhaps The Yard will soon share that distinction.
