Restaurants in the Hill Country

We will be staying outside of Wimberley for a week and would like any tips on finding a great place to eat. It really doesn't matter what type of food and not real fancy as we are on vacation. (This won't take place until spring) I have read of Trattoria Lisina in Driftwood. Does anyone have any comments on it?

Trattoria Lisina
13308 FM 150 West, Driftwood, TX 78619

Best place to eat peach pie, ice cream, etc. in Weatherford, TX

We can not make it to the Peach Festival this year, but will be going to Weatherford this weekend (June 26) and want to know where the best place is to eat lunch/dinner that also has peach pie, ice cream on any other dessert with peaches? I hear that their peaches are really good this year and I have not been to Parker County in 20+ years.

Good Drive-In, Diner, or Dive off I35 from Waco to Austin for lunch

We are traveling to Austin from Dallas this weekend and need to stop for lunch and wanted to find "that special unknown place" to eat that has good food, but is not a chain. Adults and children, so nothing fancy.

I thought about something in Salado, but I am really not familiar with the food there.

Any suggestions will be much appreciated.

Where To Buy The Best Marinated Fajitas To Grill

I have loved hearing from all of you and each have been a great help for names and places to stop and shop. I love to find the unexpected good places that usually the locals only know about. Looking forward to my trip and stopping off at one of your suggestions.

Thanks again.

Where To Buy The Best Marinated Fajitas To Grill

I will be traveling to Wimberley, TxX(Hill Country) in April and we want to purchase the best products to grill chicken and beef or pork Fajitas and side dishes. We are staying out away from the city and wanted to purchase our products either in Dallas or between Dallas and Wimberley (San Marcos/Austin area). I want tender meat that we can grill and authentic Mexican food to make a great meal for my family of 10.

Appreciated your suggestions.
