Dirty 6th Area Restaurants

I recently moved downtown near dirty 6th (yeah i know, i'm not sure why i thought that was a good idea...) But after living up north for 2 years, I AM really enjoying being able to walk to things. Do y'all have any suggestions for good restaurants that are in walking distance of this area? I'm looking mostly for good prices, healthy options, everyday type of places. But am open to all suggestions. I tried out Chupacabra as it is really close by but was really disappointed. I didn't think it was possible to get bad Tex-Mex in Austin, but that place proved me wrong. It was totally tasteless and I'm assuming people just go there for drinks. I tried out Koriente today for the second time and I plan on going back there frequently. If you lived in this area where would you eat when sober?

In LA for only ONE night. Need Dinner rec

Does it matter which Cobras and Matadors we go to if we decide to? I looked it up and saw that there are at least 2 different locations. Thanks!

We are going to be mainly in west hollywood area but can go wherever. We are from texas, so we usually eat a lot of tex mex so something different than that would be nice. I eat pretty much anything except I am not a huge fan of sushi.

My boyfriend and I are going to be in LA for only one day and we are trying to find a cool place to eat dinner. We are going to be there on a Tuesday. We are looking for something that is a nice place with good food but not tooo nice/ expensive (entrees around $20 is ok).

Lucky Js Waffle and Fries on Burnet

I saw this post and was really excited to try this place. I just went today and it was pretty good. I agree that "The Deal" is a really good deal b/c you get a lot for your money. I also agree that the fried chicken could use more salt, especially to contrast with the sweet waffles. The owner said that outdoor seating is coming soon.

Best Pizza in Austin?

Austin Pizza Garden is definitely the best pizza in austin and one of my favorite restaurants. I love all the options they have and their caesar salad is so simple but delicious. Love love this pizza.

Best time to eat Pink's?

I am going to LA in a few weeks and am wondering what the best time to go to Pink's is? I hear there is supposed to be a long line and was hoping to go at a time when it was a little less crowded. Thanks.
