1 Day and Night in Austin
Posted 03 March 2010 - 04:30 PM
I have a stay over in Austin from a weekend trip and am looking for a few recs. I am looking for somewhere for dinner sunday night and a lunch spot monday before I leave monday evening.
Maybe some BBQ? For dinner something unique, nothing crazy high end but would like something nice, say $50-$75 including a glass of wine or drink? No tex-mex as I already eat a lot of good mexican food because I am from Socal.

Or Hut's Hamburgers for a great burger and Texas size onion rings.
Me, I'd rent a car or bum a ride to Lockhart or Elgin - or both.

DO NOT miss the BBQ in Lockhart !
the BBQ is SOOOO good .... i am thinking about MOVING there JUST to have access to the sublime
smoked meats on a daily basis !
if you like the REAL deal when it comes to smoked meats...... GO to LOCKHART and GO to BLACKS SMITTYS OR KREUZ !
ALL absolutely AMAZING!

Austin's bus system is passable and can get you to a lot of places and I believe they are designed to deal with bikes.
If you`re not big enough to lose, you`re not big enough to win! Try this jalapeno, son. It ain't hot...

Jezebel was mostly a bust. Undercooked sweetbreads, everything plated really "tall," unmemorable flavor combinations, underseasoned entrees. Eh.
Drove out to Cooper's in Llano for BBQ (with a stop at Inman's and another stop at Opie's in Spicewood) and it was good but a little too salty for me. We tried the brisket (still think Smitty's is better), sausage (really good), and pork ribs (good but not the best I've had).
