Very helpful post, thank you! We're not huge buffet fans, but Lambert's looks pretty interesting.

Well, I don't want tacos and migas every single day. You think I should ditch Juan and Tacodeli for these other places?

Yep, 3LP is on our hit list and we actually just got a nice coupon for it. We'll be there!

Thanks for the feedback!

We're visiting April 1-7, so things should have quieted down. I've already made some reservations for places like Uchi and Perla's, just to be safe.

We live near DC in northern Virginia. There's certainly a variety of cuisine, but not really sure we do anything super-well around here.

For Mozart's, I was more interested in the location. Willing to sacrifice a bit to enjoy a spot by the lake. I'll keep the other coffee places you listed in mind, though.

For desserts, I just wanted to have some places handy in case we get a sweet craving while out and about at night.

I'll definitely look into Titaya's. Love good Thai food.

Thanks again!

Hey everyone! I've been reading Chowhound for a good while but this is my first time posting.

Just wanted to get your opinion on the list of restaurants that I've put together. Mostly, I'm looking for help spotting huge errors -- terrible, waste-of-time choices OR glaring must-visit omissions. Where are the places that, after coming back home, I'll be kicking myself for not visiting while here?

We've got seven days in Texas; six in Austin and one in San Antonio. Here's my list:

Breakfasts:
- Juan in a Million
- Gordough's
- Flip Happy
- Mozart's
- Guenther House (SA)
- Bouldin Creek Cafe
- Tacodeli

Lunches:
- Franklin's BBQ
- Torchy's Taco
- Lockhart BBQ (Smitty's, Black's, Kreuz)
- Acenar (SA)
- Three Little Pigs
- Home Slice
- Somewhere near Fredericksburg (help?)

Dinners:
- Uchi
- Salt Lick
- Perla's
- Boudro's (SA)
- Barley Swine
- ???
- ???

Treats:
- Sno Beach
- Bananarchy
- Amy's Ice Cream
- Sugar Mama's
- ???

Additions, Subtractions? Really appreciate your help. This site is such a great resource.
