Prelog's brunch

I had brunch at the Four Seasons, the spread was not good IMO. You are way better off ordering off the menu and getting hot food for a third of the price.
I'll suggest this place once I save some pennies. At least you don't have to worry about parking on Sundays.
Thanks for the info.

Best eats near Downtown

I'm glad Stiles worked out. It's an overlooked place for weeknight, easy barbecue.

I never heard of this place. Where is it? This looks ungodly expensive. How much we talking?

Kerlin's BBQ Best in the Country?

Mickelwaith has OK sauasage and okay brisket. Last time I went the salt to pepper ratio was way off. I won't go again. Can't speak to Kerlin.

Re:post from r/austin subreddit Wheatsville employee open letter about wages,etc.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/265492373/O...

TL:DR Wheatsville pay is low and it sounds like they treat employees like the big box places do.

It's not illegal but you definitely expect better from a co-op.

These food trucks are super sensitive to weather. When they are out there with product and nobody comes they are loosing money. I agree they should be open when the hours say they are open but I also recognize these guys are under tight finical situations. Most restaurants aren't open at a particular time on the dot unless they are national chains.

Recipe for Chi'lantro's dipping sauce for wings. Anyone have it?

Does anyone have a clue as to what's in that sauce? It's super good.

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

I can understand some anger but living near businesses this is a risk. I should say that I don't think the La BBQ should complain. That lot is next to a soup kitchen. That lot could easily be a shanty town or something worse. Since La BBQ is leaving those people may wish the smoke was back.

I can't say. I don't like mint in desserts, only gum.

Coolhaus, the Ice cream sandwich truck is shutting down. I didn't like their sandwiches. The cookies were hard and the ice cream wasn't anything special. I think at this point you have to be cheap or excellent to stay around here.

Austin Monthly Barbeque Showdown

Freeman's indoor seating is sparse. I only went there for smoked banana pudding which I didn't like, it was mostly whipped cream.

I tell people Black's is pretty good and there are no substantial lines. You can get bbq in like 10 minutes.

Shake Shack coming to Austin!!!

I only had them during SXSW. I was disappointed but outside on an improvised grill isn't the best way to have food prepared or eat it.

Mayweather vs. Pacquaio fight at bar/restaurant?

The going price appears to be $20-$25 dollars plus food minimums at some places.

Wild wings, hooters and Dave and busters. But prepare to be there2 hours early and pay a cover.

GF wants Nachos with queso this weekend where to go?

Should have done this. Went to Tortuga Flats based on the thrillist list and it sucked. All the cheese was at the bottom. Won't be back.

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.

Chilantro is underrated

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.
