Best Place For Holiday Dinner

Yea...they close on turkey day, we go there on Wednesday instead. It is $38 per person, one thing so funny about FDC is the $38 per person price tag is not list anywhere not front door, not on the table, not on the menu. Overall the food is good (little on the salty side), they have 16 difference type of meats, the whole place have about 30-40 tables but only got 6 to 7 tables customers. they keep bringing difference type of meat one after another, I feel like need to force myself to eat fast (lol) after 15 mins. we already got 7 to 8 slice of meats on our plates, we just need to call it a stop by turn the card to red, ( they have a card on the table with green and red side on it, green = you want more, red = stop) service is good, the decor and layout have a very high-class feel on it. It end up just two of us, with a bottle of wine ($42, btw the price of the wine is reasonable $30-$100) plus a dessert course (it is not included in the $38) total come to $144 dollars. Will I go back?....umm, yes, but on a special day, like someone's birthday or something.

We design go to Fogo de Chao, they only cost $35 something per person here in Austin, what I understand is the Houston one cost $70 something per person...so for $140 + wines for $60, total of 200 some dollars for four persons eating out for Thanksgiving isn't too bad.

No more jager bombs and vodka redbulls!

I know it will be a bad reply, but try gay bar like OCH and Rain... I find the gay bar are better place for fancy cocktail, since gay people order more cocktail that college dude who only order beer on 6th street. Four Season also a good place too but I just hate the price.

That Popcorn Place

I just a big bag of Watermelon, funfetti, chocolate, lemon and cheddar three days ago and it still yummy today. That Popcorn Place have two locations: 924 East Austin, Gidding, TX and 1914 Guadalupe, Austin, Texas. As right now I love the watermelon, but I also like the chocolate and funfetti (yes guess the popcorn is fun..LOL) I sure I will go back try the rest of them

Austin - Sunday dinner?

Try Bellagio at 6507 Jester Blvd, IMO I think it is better that Jeffrey (food and price). And the Calamari Bellagio is to die for, also the Porchetta Florentine (Grilled double pork chop stuffed with spinach, asiago cheese and pine nuts) can't live without it.

What to order at Sunflower

As Chinese myself I go to Din Ho Chinese BBQ (8557 Research Blvd # 116), it is the same price but the selection is way better.

Butcher Shop

Hey I'm new here!
Cooper's Meat Market still call Cooper's Meat Market, 1601 W 38th St (I just live down the road, I go there all the time) they are still the best in town for prime cut. Central Market also very good one for special cut, they will get you anything you want.
