Can GT suggest good restaurants to eat at? Anything beside Mexican food please.....
Chain Drive is a quaint little place to hang. It will let you appreciate all Austin has to offer.
Any of about a 1,000 food trucks around 6th Street
If this band is playing when you are in Austin go see them - you'll thank me later.
Salt Lick in Driftwood (way south of Austin - but worth it)
bring cash, they do not accept checks or credit cards.
the Salt Lick in Round Rock accepts credit cards
Cool - I fly to Austin tomorrow. Never been there before, should be interesting.
Franklin's for BBQ.
Threadgill's was great the last time I was there, which was quite a long time ago.
Kerby Lane for breakfast is good, so is Magnolia Cafe.
You'll probably wind up on South Congress Ave. south of the river. You'll see a lot of food trailers, and some good restaurants in that area. Perla's Seafood, Home Slice Pizza, Fran's Hamburgers, Guero's.
I know you said no Mexican, but Juan in a Million is also good for breakfast. Man vs. Food did a show there a couple of years ago for the Don Juan challenge. You can't possibly turn down breakfast tacos.
The Oasis on Lake Travis. It's much different now than it used to be (before the fire). They poured a lot of money into it, and I can't vouch for the food. They had a terrible reputation for food, but excellent for drinks and to watch the sunset. Lake Travis is still low, but it might be worth a trip.
Go to Congress Avenue bridge and check out the bats in the evening. They should be back from Mexico by now.
Another vote for the salt lick
Sullivans of 4th.
Pricey, but damn well worth it.
For dessert you can go just about anywhere and kick a hipster!
Add another vote for Salt Lick BBQ. Best I've ever had.
And thanks for the ideas guys. I'll have to check out Salt lick since I've heard about it multiple times in this thread.
Also you can check out http://www.hillscafe.com/
If you like catfish and all the good side items that go with it, I'd recommend the Catfish Parlour. Trip Advisor has it at 4 out of 5 stars. The last time I was in Austin there were 2 locations but the website now shows three locations. I liked the N. Austin location.
I was just about to recommend the same...
And just what the hell is wrong with Mexican food? You have no idea how miserable I am right now as a Texan away from good Tex-Mex. Everytime I go back home I load up on it like a squirrel hoarding acorns.
Catfish Parlor is FANTASTIC! Moonshines on Red River is great as well.
Catfish Parlor has an all you can eat lunch meal that is around $13.
Trulucks on 183 is supposed to be good, too much for me. The Roaring Fork on Braker is really good.
Just not my preference, most here seem too dang greasy too.
If I wanted mexican food, I'd get the real thing by going over to my girlfriend's family's for dinner.
Kerby Lane and Magnolia are always good.
As many others have said..... I Love Salt Lick!
I moved here a month after the fire at The Oasis. For a while the food was just 'meh', but the drinks and view were amazing. I go at least once a year and the food seems to get better and better each time. When I was there in August, I really enjoyed my food. The lake was down a lot due to the drought though.
Here is a pic from that trip......
Austin is my happy place. ( went to college there...) and most of my best memories are of Austin.
There is so much to do but the largest natural resource of Austin is 30,000 female undergrads. Let everyone else chase down "things" and "places"...Just plop yourself down at Einstein bagels on Guadalupe St. and enjoy the view....the magical view.
If you are single, tag and release....
*sign*....youth and Austin...
