Bob's Chop and Steak House?

I've gotten dry aged ribeyes at the Lakeline farmer's market before. I want to say it was $20-something / lb and from Winters Beef.

El Patio is 60

Maybe that's it-- I always get the guacamole and a couple of their flat tacos with queso drizzled over the top on those fresh fried tortillas.

I'd happily eat there, but I very rarely do because if I'm driving "all the way into town" (I live up in WilCo) and I want Mexican food I go to Cisco's or Habanero or Polvo's.

Kiss my grits !!

The north location of Hoover's used to be close to my house and I pretty much ate my way through the whole menu and came to the conclusion that Hoover's is best for breakfasts and chicken fried steak.

I like the garlic cheddar version at Hoover's.

Where to get good smoked turkey?

They are indeed inside the mall as it says. We stumbled across them the other day and sampled some meats and cheeses and bought some fudge and jerky.

Aged beef?

I have gotten dry aged ribeyes at the Lakeline Farmer's Market from Winters Family Beef.

I haven't been to the Farmers Market in a while so you might want to check their web site to see if they have a schedule etc.

Broasted chicken in Austin?

Barbara Ellen's used to have the best pot roast.

RIP V

A Starbucks! Never thought I'd see the day. The Starbucks at Lake Creek and the 183 Southbound access road closed. No worries, Starbucks fans-- there is another one a couple blocks down at Anderson Mill. Heh.

I'm actually glad to see it close. I don't really care one way or the other about Starbucks but so many idiots would just SIT in the turnaround lane and WAIT for all three lanes of traffic on the access road to empty so they could shoot directly across all three lanes into the Starbucks. So annoying.

Where I have recently eaten in Austin and what I wish I can get

Thanks for the info-- if I ever end up around there I'll give it a try! :-)

Where I have recently eaten in Austin and what I wish I can get

If that's the place near 35 and 290 that used to be an Outback, I went there a few years ago and I want to say their grills were electric and used what looked like toaster oven heating elements in the bottom. It was long enough ago that I don't recall what all we ordered but we didn't end up with lettuce and ssamjang even after asking. It was a few years ago and I will happily go back and try them again because in my book pretty much any KBBQ is yummy. Thanks for the suggestion!

I know I'm not going to make this sound appetizing, but here goes... most mac salad in Hawaii seems to be very over-boiled and it has a lot of mayo in it and it's kind of sweet so it doesn't *seem* as much like a starch as it does just something sweet and fatty. Yeah, I didn't make that sound good-- but somehow it is in the context of a plate lunch. :-)

I wish there was better Korean BBQ available. A place where you can cook over actual charcoal instead of frying it. A place that has ssamjang and lettuce for making ssam. My first stop whenever I go to SF or LA is at that kind of KBBQ place because I haven't been able to find one here.

I grew up in Hawaii and I miss plate lunch. I'd even settle for Zippy's at this point. :-) I also miss gyudon.

I wish there were more independent deli's in Austin. We have a few but it would be nice to have more so it's less of a production to go find one. I also echo lixlix's point about bakeries for the exact same reasons.

RIP part 4

The northwest location of Hoover's Cooking is closing at the end of December. The Manor Rd. location will remain open.
