Downtown lunches

I wouldn't want to go back to work after eating very spicy fried chicken. That's just me though.

Downtown lunches

They have a brick and mortar in a strip mall not far from south Lamar draft house.

Downtown lunches

Whole Foods is a great working man's option. $10 will get you fed. You can do decent bbq, pizza sandwich sushi. It's your oyster. Also I like Luke's inside out although not downtown per say. Chilantro is good too.

Black's smokes in Lockhart and trucks the stuff in I believe. They just have warmers in town.All the wood and stuff there appears to be for show or for catering.

Chilantro is underrated

I went to the brick and mortar on Lamar in a strip mall. They are taking over the former Man Bites Dog.

Just went there for the first time after always being curious. Got the kpop wings and fried rice balls. They were really awesome. Both flavors of wings were good and the rice balls were little balls of explosive flavor. This place deserves way more love.

I think they'll smoke offsite and bring food in. It's not like they can cook to order. Black's is showing this can be done with a minimal decrease in quality.

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

I haven't had a bad sandwich yet at Republic of Sandwich. I love their kimchi brussel sprouts. Might be my favorite side in town.

Snooze is coming to Austin

I hate websites that try to be cute. Menu, hours, location and a link for reservations. That's all I need.

Cafe du Monde style beignets in Austin Texas?

Try a chocolate chip cookie. Its tremendous heated up.

It's a chain of Italian fast casual restaurants pizza and sandwiches, aka grinders. They also bake their fries but do so pretty badly.

Texas French Bread is good. You could also go to Wheatsville Co-op for cheaper stuff. It's a hippie grocery store that sells hot food and pastries, probably everything in there is free-range organic fair-trade..

Hotel Ella has very good food, at least the last time I went there when it was called something else. The management I think stayed the same it was more of a re-branding.

High prices, really upscale atmosphere thats a special occasion place not an everyday place. I don't think you can sustain a restaurant in Austin based on once a year visits.

How does my itinerary look? Excited for five days in Austin in April!

Always specifically ask for moist brisket. I've never had dry brisket at La BBQ. Next time try Lick ice cream. Don't be disappointed if nothing you tried at the driskoll is there when you come back, they rotate the menu.
Sounds like you had a good time and you actually took some suggestions.

Is Via 313 still on Rainey? That's damn good pizza.

If I recall they open at 11 so if you are there by then you should eat in an hour.

Franklin's is a waste of precious time for a weekend. Plan to go to La BBQ early and you'll get food in an hour or so. Lambert's is a cool place downtown. People seem to like Moonshine as a general all purpose gathering place, mainly due to the bar. It's often recommended for bachelor parties.

I too was underwhelmed by Dai Due and I don't like Two Broke Girls. I stand with Girl of the World.

That place must be on an Indian burial ground. Lots of turnover recently.

Alamo Drafthouse menu suggestions needed today! (4/3/15)

Glad you had a good time. Their pizza is legit for non-pizza place pizza.

So they are down to one near the Arboretum right? I kinda liked their burgers. They could never get the fries crispy enough in the olive oil though but still pretty good.

Hudson's on the Bend. Good stuff off the beaten path, meaning you'll need a car. Trailers!! Go to Gordough's for greasy goodness and try Luke's Inside out trailer. My favorite spicy chicken sandwich. I am a philistine and like the food at Trudy's. Others don't but I recommend searching out Mexican food. Much different than what you get in Cali.
