Y'all know this, but if I want a gyro, Milto's is the one to beat.

Brooklyn Pie Co.

We have the one on Mesa that delivers to our house. It's our go-to. Great, chewy crust (think sourdough) and quality toppings. Absolutely worth a try if it's that close.

Staying 10/30 - 11/2

Did you actually make reservations for lunch?

I'll actually be there the same time as you (minus Saturday dinner) and was hoping to wing most of it.

We don't want to dress up, so: Jeans, top siders and polo shirts/nice blouse. We were thinking more casual spots with the nicer places being at lunch. I was thinking places along the line of Coops and Cooter Brown's, Central Grocery and Cochron. But I've been to New Orleans and had the "old school places" already (Commanders, Brennans, etc.).

Haven't been to any you've mentioned, though.

Texas Monthly BBQ Festival 2014

Luckily, I don't even need to go to Barton Springs. I have a private neighborhood park right on Bull Creek. Not only do we usually have the place to ourselves, we can drink beer, too.

Yup. Those are pretty much our rules as well...except we never did get into seeing bands, and I always order take-away at Franklin's to skip the line.

Texas Monthly BBQ Festival 2014

Looks like I was right in not going. Unfortunately, Austin has grown too big for festivals to be fun anymore. Eater Austin's comments just confirmed this.

You're leaving Austin for good, take one taco with you and tell us why.

Here I am in my "natural habitat"

Agreed. Tried WC about six months ago and decided it wasn't anything special.

Ever since Fran's on Congress left us (sob), the only burger I can find (not "gourmet" - Cover 3) that's worth while is Freddy's steak burger.

Any day but Friday and Wednesday I'll be south until after noon. I'm just up the street at 183/Ohlen otherwise.

I can even do it this Wednesday, but it'd have to be after noon (I'm down south getting my halloween costume fitting that morning).

That sounds fun. Would be a nice compromise when I want to go out and hubby wants to stay in.

Yikes. I've never been to Fruta Feliz. Pics looks yummy!

Let's do this and you don't need to buy! Wednesdays are best for me (except next Wed) and Fridays are out.

On that side note, usually at Pinos I get the relleno al pastor with tomatillo sauce.

Mine, hmmm...

I've always loved the al pastor at Pinos, very closely followed by the beef fajita. This isn't so much for the taco as for the garlicky red salsa as well.

I've never had Mi Madres. Guess it's time.

I guess I'm about chile rellenos as you are to tacos.

Has anyone been to the Korean place next door?

We've been K&C twice and both times really enjoyed everything. Got the chicken and shared it papaya salad was very spicy, but addictive.

Both times we got the son in law eggs. Unique crunch-fry whites with the creamy yolks and the sauce on top was crazy-good! Very rich.

Second time, we ordered the Tongue and the Meatloaf. Both full of flavors.

Our next time, we want to get the bi bim bap from the Korean place next door, but were hoping for an opinion from someone who's tried them.

Best Bi Bim Bap

Truth be told, I know nothing of Korean food and my experiences in Austin are very limited. My go-to for bi bim bap (it feels healthy - don't burst my bubble) is Korea House. My problem with them is inconsistency. Sometimes the meat is great, sometimes it's mealy and mushy. When they do the ban chan right (love the variety), yum, and sometimes they serve a sad, bland, white potato.

I've been to Rockin' Rice a few times, but found it almost too light - lettuce makes it feel like a salad, not a smorgasbord of flavors and textures.

So, what I'm looking for is a bi bim bap with great super-flavorful meat and lots of different veggie combos of flavors and textures with LOTS of different ban chan.

Zagat's Top 10 Austin Burgers

We went. It was pretty terrible. Cooked to dry and no flavor. I really wanted to like this place, too.

Also tried the gyro. Lamb meat was done in cubes and you could tell it was high quality, but just didn't ring my bell.

Is anyone indulging in Hatch Chiles?

Had someone who knew how to roast at CM N. Lamar (i.e., NOT turning them to mush), so I bought three big bags.

So far, chile rellenos, green chile pork stew, quesadillas, Rocco's pepper steak.

Plenty more bags in the freezer waiting. Planning on a Hatch zucchini bread tomorrow.
