Fino isn't far and while it's not my favorite Indian place Clay Pit will likely have food that address both concerns.

Some places known for their chicken wings

I don't think Pluckers wings are breaded. Pretty sure they are naked.

Where is your Go to spot for Friday Happy Hour specials?

Alcohol is aces but they have a line outside the door when they open simetimes. Fleming is a solid alternative. Lamberts has a great happy hour.

El Faro - perhaps the best mexican buffet dive you will ever try

The pictures don't exactly look enticing...

I highly recommend buttermilk pie. Never even heard of it till I got here. Lots of places have good pie. Most recent restaurant I remember with good pie was Dai Due. In fact the pie was the only thing I really liked.

Yes that is the area I speak of. There are some good places in that area.

We went for happy hour and everything was horrible. Like we couldn't finish it bad. I was only joking earlier..

I'd argue our China town is pretty good and while not in China town I love Ho Ho Chinese BBQ.

You might enjoy Z'Tejas its a Tex Mex place and the food is actually pretty damn good and doesn't get the love it deserves.

The food is HARRIBLE at Blackfinn. Don't go there or recommend other people go there. A pox on your house dear lady. Brick House's food is underwhelming but the apps aren't bad and it's actually a good atmosphere for a game. I haven't been there since they opened but it would seem that Punch Bowl Social would be a good place to watch events.

Golden Corral

Steak at Golden Corral is way better than a TV dinner steak. Also I've never seen them cook steak on a flat top. It's usually over an open flame/grill.

I had the worst service in the world at their Parmer Lane location, will never go to them again. Also the wings are anemic. Good fries though.

Gus's isn't anywhere close to North Austin. As for breaded wings your pickings are slim. It may be hearsay but I like Hooters Wings for breaded wings. If you are offended by breasts get them to go. I see little league teams in there so don't feel like a perf. You see worse at the beach.

Dai Due, Austin, TX

I had no issue with portion size but the cost was a bit out of whack. Twenty three bucks for sausage and cabbage was steep.

Weekend in Austin

Never heard anyone put Wink above any of the other really good places in town. If you don't mind a drive I'd go to Hudson's on The Bend.

Dai Due, Austin, TX

I went after all this takk. I'm deeply disappointed. We had supper club menu of fried chicken mashed potatoes and kale. Chicken was okay but not great. Kale had no flavor and the potatoes weren't very mashed. They were in big chunks and lacked butter. The sausage plate was very ordinary. I won't be back.

Best Happy Hour Food Deals in North Austin

Flemings. Their burger and pork belly dish are out of sight. Kona grill will allow you to eat like a king at their Happy Hour too. Not Austin but Jack Allen's kitchen in Round Rock lasso has good happy hour food.

Chain but the happy hour burger st Flemings is a go to staple for me.

I miss the old day sod groupon and living social. I was buying those things weekly, eating like a doctor. All the good restaurants we went back to.

Anyone know of good food around the Erin Center?

If you like pizza go Via 313, they are open late and are on the East side. Not close but not that far away either. Clay Pit is decent Indian food, not too far. I can't think of anything great within walking distance.

They were at an event I went to. Definition of shoe leather. They should be ashamed.

Golden Corral

All buffets are bad news. I can't recall the last one I had good food at. Even the brunch buffet at the Four Season sucks. At least Golden Corral has the decency not to charge you $60.

Golden Corral

Yes I'm talking about that location. I think one down the road on Lamar closed when they opened that one. If you have 10 bucks and no time that' s a really quick lunch.

Golden Corral

It varies by who mans the grill. It's like getting a steak on a cruise ship or at a resort. Sometimes you get the person who doesn't cook manning the station and sometimes you get somebody who knows what they are doing.
