Austin-How goes the great grocery bag ban experiment?

MT market and a few Home Depots had a large inventory of bags and the city has allowed them to deplete their back stock.

Salvation Pizza or Via 313

The trailer across from Via 313 is Savage Pizza if I'm not mistaken. Both good!!! Although I would probably give the nod to 313, like the sauce and crust better!!

NY/NJ Hounder coming Labor Day Wknd- BBQ questions and other food Recs.

I personally wouldn't make the long trip out to Salt Lick for at best average BBQ, Lockhart is closer and you can take your pick from Black's, Smitty's and Kruse. As far as tacos go, Franklin's is on the east side, go for the real deal, Tacos El Rico and La Michoacana Meat Market both open at 8 and are close, don't fall for those gringo tacos.!! Ken's Donuts on Airport is pretty old school and tasty.

Bahn Mi in South Austin?

It was open as of this past Thursday, had a great Bhan Mi, and a noodle bowl, really fresh, and a good size, order with an egg on top. Owners were wonderful.

LA Hound coming into town; any help would be greatly appreciated.

Oh, but you must give some love to the Horseshoe Lounge, in the same shopping center as Barley Swine and truly Austin. Great jukebox, $1.50 beers and .50 cent shuffleboard and all the locals you can stand.

Which trailer park to take out of town guests

I think the perfect place to start is the East Side Drive-in at 6th & San Marcos, after you walk down to 6th & Rio Grande, both have about 4 to 6 trailers in each, Way South Philly, Salvation Pizza, Bits and Druthers to name a few. In addition there are 2 (i think) east side king trailers located in Shangri-La and the Grackle, all within walking distance of each other. If your still hungry, Rainey Street has got a good group, Cazamance, G'Raj Mahal , El Naranjo and Budare's Arepas, as well as South 1st, Izzozs Tacos, Little Thai food, Mueller BBQ and Gordough's donuts.

Anyone tried Frietkot?

Tried them about a week ago, gotta say I wasn't impressed, they were greasy, overcooked and worst of all I think the oil was old...it had that bitter taste. Best I can say is I thought they were seasoned well.

Food Cart Crawl

I agree with Izzoz's, we've been eating them forever, we love John the owner, but in this situation I am looking for smaller portions and his tacos are just to big!!! As far as ending, at Duck and Gordough's we plan on splitting things, so portions are very tiny, including the donuts, taking cutting board and knife.....tiny tiny portions!!!

Food Cart Crawl

Chef, I'll have you know we did early recon this past Saturday and we each had only 1, it was tough but I fight the good fight, I guess I was sticking them first so we know the standard to judge by and I thought they close around 8ish and all the other carts stay open later????

Food Cart Crawl

We will be hitting them later in the evening, we thinking tacos el rico early, since I think they close earlier than most.

Food Cart Crawl

Doing a food cart crawl with friends this Saturday, big van and designated driver. We would like to do about 5, East Side Kings, Odd Duck and Gourdough's are on the list. We want to end at Odd Duck and Gourdough's. I would like to add tacos for sure and perhaps BBQ. Would have love to add Franklins, but went by today and they were sold out at 1:30 and we won't even be starting till about 4:00. Give me some suggestions please!!!!

Is there a good philly cheese steak in Austin??

Looking for the best and most authentic. What makes it real, is it the meat, does it have to be shaved rib eye steak, what about the roll and let's not forget the all important cheese, wiz or provolone???? Do you do the condiments onions, mushrooms and peppers??? Inquiring minds want to know.

An Essay on Austin,Texas Food in 2009:From Sugar's to Justine's and Everything in Between

hey chef, can I ask where you ate in new orleans, heading there in January, would love to here your recs.

Can't say enough good things about Parkside, great burgers, love the mac and cheese, oysters on Wednesday. We've eaten at Fabi & Rosi, cozy place the pork belly was perfect, the veal and spatzle was a mixed bag, veal was great, the spatzle was not traditional, as I know it, more like a sphaghetti than the little buttons of pasta and I did not detect that it had been fried in butter before serving. The bee hive cake was tasty but perhaps a bit dry. Go to spots has to be Hebenaros-carnitas and T&S seafood, salt&pepper shrimp

Tamales for Christmas Party

Both Nueva Onda by the South Congress HEB and Habneros on Oltorf sell them by the dozen. At Nueva Onda you might have to order in advance.
