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?

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.

(Courtney) And was I the only one thinking tonight's dress was waaay too short and loose for a balcony. I'm sure all below got an eye full.

Fresh pasta in Austin

They always look at me funny when I order just one sheet of lasagne (for my manicotti)

Let's hope you don't have matching heels. ;))

Maybe we could meet up at Sonora HD someday. I know Rudeboy and Scrumptious live in that area as well.

(Sorry for high-jacking the thread, y'all.)

Fresh pasta in Austin

This place is right next to Kerbey Lane. It's my go-to. They also have sauces, should you want some.

There you are!

Now I'll recognize you if I happen to hit someplace you are. However, you go to WAAAAAY more places than I do. I think I've been to a third (if that) of your hits...do your parents want to adopt a 47 year old foodie that cleans?

Lemme tell y'all - this gal blows most food critics out of the water. She'd have made great tv.

NYC Chowhounder coming to Austin for the first time over Labor Day

Hopdoddy

If you were planning on going to the one on Anderson Lane, may I suggest Cover 3, which is just about two blocks toward Mopac on the same side of the street? MUCH better burgers and their parm/garlic fries are crave-worthy, plus about the same price and a better selection of beer. Another plus, no wait.

Trust me, you'll be more pleased with the burger there than at Hopdoddy. I've been twice and kicked myself each time.

Yeah, I wouldn't get the brisket at SS after noon. I do enjoy the beef rib, though (wish their sides were better).

I like Live Oak for post noon. They don't even start serving the special until mid-afternoon.

BBQ 512 used to be Chisholm Trail

My husband has to go regularly to meet clients who LOVE this place. Locals. He said the exact same thing - horrible.

I would put Live Oak or Styles Switch above them. I only tried them once, however, and it may have been an off day. Certainly nice people.

I was telling my husband the exact same thing. Noble makes a perfect breakfast sandwich. It's so rare to get the eggs fluffy, soft and moist, yet still firm enough not to soak the bun or fall out in little fluflettes. Perfect in its simplicity.

Hard Hat XII

Other one was getting cumbersome.

Two things I saw today:

1. Looks like Suzi's on Anderson will be no more. It now says it's a sleep experts on the building, but the "coming soon" on the sign is still there.

2. New place opened between Noble and Pinthouse called Fork and Taco. Haven't tried it yet, though.

Excellent to hear! Walking distance from work, too. I guess that terrible Luby's-style bbq joint two doors down is doomed...

Is Shades on Lake Travis Closed for Good?

Seemed like a perfect day for their patio, but everything leads to them being shuttered for good. Damn. I liked that place.

Thanks for answering for me guys. I'm not as "here" as I used to be.

The restaurant supply store on North Lamar has all that at a much more reasonable price than "retail".

Monday Blues - Shut Out Twice

Went back Tuesday and got a burrito and agua fresca (cucumber mint). Refreshing, but I kept getting bits of mint in my teeth. Michael gave me the heads-up he'd been hit by the Chronicle.

Went back again today after a verrry long, H-O-T day on the lot and got a double fresca (cucumber lemon). Michael let me read the Chronicle article - they seem to have liked it. Totally hit the spot!

Goode or Danton's for Dinner

Is there a better place in that area?

Goode or Danton's for Dinner

Coming for one night (eating brunch at Brennan's the next morning) and are staying at the Wyndham Medical Center. We have a car, but parking can be a bear.

We were thinking of a nice seafood dinner at Danton's, but it looks from the reviews they're very hit and miss. We'd like to stay in the general area of the Museum/Hotel if possible. Is Goode Co. Seafood a good choice or is there some place off my radar?

Keep in mind, we have a Uchi, Pappadeaux, Trulucks, Eddie V's.

Many thanks!

Noteworthy HEB/Central Market Products

I assume the pizzas are in the frozen section? I'll have to look the next time I'm there. I usually pass right by all the frozen stuff - always seems to sound great on the cover and I'm disappointed with the product.

Didn't we all...Ack! Land of the Bland strikes again. Besides the pizza across the street at Brooklyn Pie is much better.

I wasn't thrilled with that place that opened where Maribelle was either.

Monday Blues - Shut Out Twice

I really should start checking out websites before I head off for lunch. Was craving Sonora HD's agua fresca and burrito, but got there only to remember they're closed Mondays (doh!).

Okay, been wanting to try Stonehouse Woodfire Grill (although burger/gyro seemed heavy for a day like today) only to discover the same thing about them.

Drat...

Ended up at Top Notch with all the other old farts because I couldn't bring myself to eat a Schlotzsky's calorie/fat bomb (where do they put it all?!).
