An Austin restaurant has been named one of the best Southern dining locales in the country, according to a list by OpenTable, the popular website used to book restaurant reservations.

Fixe, an upscale comfort food restaurant in downtown Austin, was one of six Texas restaurants on the list. The list was generated from OpenTable restaurant reviews by users.

Fixe serves “Sunday Supper”-style dining every night. Co-owner James Robert grew up in Louisiana and says his southern roots influence the restaurant’s style. Fixe is opening a second location, in Fort Worth, on Sept. 1.

Other Texas restaurants on the list include Cured in San Antonio, Brennan’s of Houston and State of Grace in Houston, Rapscallion in Dallas and Ida Claire in Addison.
