Vegan Restaurant Options?

Jaspers? It is at the Domain.. it is a good place if not everyone in your group is vegan...it is good to very good.. not real pricey.. but has some different vegan options

Golden Corral

Augggggh.. my nightmare.. everytime my cousin visits this is her "most favourite place to eat" It is like a Wes Anderson Film with people shoving food into their knockoff Coach bags and small kids running with mylar plates dripping with plastic cheese nachos and jello... and the icecream machine squirting out fecal shaped globbs of splat covered with stale bits of crap sweept off the bottom of the floor...The whole place smelling like a dirty microwave...and sounding like the inside of a howler monkey cage...

Please help finalize Austin itinerary (researched!)

"And you will never beat their customer service"

which one do you go to? if you say Lammar I am going to say your opinion of customer service is easily pleased

Must be just be the one I have been to that has let me down several times with its grizzle and lack luster flavour...perhaps another location would change my mind...
