Holy cow! How did this one never come up?! I'm totally going there.

RIP 9 (IX)

All the others were never even close to as good as the Fran's on Congress.

Yeah, I've been and was completely under-impressed. Kind of a mix of Denny's and starbucks, and neither done very well. Bland, very generica food.

Prelog's brunch

You've convinced me. Instead of anniversary dinner, we're doing brunch Sunday.

Saffron Fusion- Indian on Far West

This place was (we moved this weekend) much closer than any other Indian. I went once and thought the same thing as you, slowcooked.

If I'm back in that area, my favorite Hawaiian chicken sammich is just two doors down...

I thought this was just a "re-naming".

Shake Shack coming to Austin!!!

I like the squished patties and the crispy edges and how the cheese melts into the patties. Reminds me of Rosco's in El Paso (only wish I could get it with green chiles).

HaTe fOod TrAILerS tRaIlORs EtAh

He has his mobile with him and answers it. I have called ahead to order the "super burrito" when hubs and I share one.

Call him first to make sure, and get the agua fresca, too.

Your loss. Honestly, I think I have to say don't go again. You're now jaded, and I just don't think you'd like it no matter what.

Has anyone else tried Freddie's? They're not Frans (on Congress), but they've done a good job easing the pain.

NYC (insert WDC)?! Get a rope...

To quote a famous "salsa" commercial...

Liberty Kitchen now open

Just went. Gumbo was excellent; nice, dark roux. Service was neglect

Great Mexican comparable to La Gloria?

Hehe. I'm going.

For the steak, I'd suggest Austin Land and Cattle (not Texas L&C) on 12th or so and Lamar.

I don't know La Gloria, but Pino's at the lake has some of the best Mexican food around (and I grew up on the border).

I went to the one on campus. They're okay and have a lot of options, but I remember thinking they were just okay.

Sad today due to Melvin's Shuttering

Aww, nuts! I wish I'd had some warning so I could have had one last one...

Congrats. Know you'll be sorely missed by the CH community.

GF wants Nachos with queso this weekend where to go?

Nachos and queso at Azul Tequilla are solid. Patio's nice, too.

Love the queso at Manuels, but the nachos are just average (however, the chiviche is excellent).

If you want a real cheese bomb, I'd suggest Pino's in Hudson Bend.

Downtown lunches

I really like Piranha Killer Sushi, Manuel's, and if you're willing to drive just across the river, you have Chuy's, and Green Mesquite.

RIP Mike's Pub, indeed.

Do you think it's just a sow's ear job? Same owners/different name?

Yes, the food there is quite awful.

favorite sandwiches in austin that are not hot dogs or burgers?

Oops. Silly me. Upper Crust across the street from the School for the Blind on Burnet.

Ah! You just reminded me. The tuna on sourdough (red onion, sprouts, tomato and swiss) is probably one of the best I've ever had. Ate it at least twice a week when I worked at the school for the blind.

All-time favorite is the Jonah at Fricano's

Ruben toasted - Melvin's

Cuban at Texas Cuban

The shrimp/grilled pork combo at NG BMT

Can a chicken sandwich count? If so, the Hawaiian chicken sandwich (swiss, wheat) at Blvd Grill

I just can't bring myself to pay $22 for a sandwich, so I've never tried Bartlett's FD. Too bad, as it's close to the house.

I like the breakfast sandwich at Noble Pig

Edit: Article reminded me of the grinder at Rundino's

Too many restaurants withholding ice!

Uhg. We'd sing it with the tape (yes, tape) in our very modern van going on river trips (of course ours was the 1968 version). That and "Wake Up Little Suzy"

Smoke gets in your eyes, and nose,throat and lungs

I put my bet on gentrification.

It's kind of my sore spot these days as I've been looking to upgrade to a bigger home (rescued an American Bull Terrier and our yard/house shrunk two sizes), but these damn Californians keep snapping everything up on the same day with CASH! No fair.

Welcome to Austin...now GO AWAY!

Chile con Queso in Austin

Yes, I think weekends only. They've had some other groups there as well, so call ahead if you specifically want mariachis.

I have the exact opposite problem. I always ask for my water with no ice and only get it that way about a third of the time. Not a big enough deal to make a stink.
