Bert's Bar-B-Q

3563 Far West Blvd
Austin, TX 78731
(512) 345-2378

Frito Pie. 'Nuff said. I used to eat there all the time in high school until the campus location burned down. And now it looks like they've reopened a new campus location.

My Yelp Review

Crown & Anchor

2911 San Jacinto Blvd
Austin, TX 78705
(512) 322-9168

Close to the University of Texas at Austin campus, many an afternoon class was missed sitting on the patio enjoying a nice, cold Shiner Bock with a jalapeno cheeseburger & fries all for under $10.

Fonda San Miguel

2330 W North Loop
Austin, TX 78756
(512) 459-4121

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in Austin. Reservations pretty much required.

Kerbey Lane Cafe

3704 Kerbey Ln
Austin, TX 78731
(512) 451-1436

An original Austin breakfast tradition with multiple 24-hour locations to serve you. However, this one on Kerbey Lane is the original.

Salt Lick Bar-B-Que

18300 FM 1826
Driftwood, TX 7861

This original location is cash only and BYOB!

Trudy's Texas Star

409 W 30th St
Austin, TX 78705
(512) 477-2935

Order the Mexican Martini w/ Herradura Gold and Grand Marnier. 'Nuff said…

Uchi

801 S Lamar Blvd
Austin, TX 78704
(512) 916-4808

This is my favorite Japanese restaurant in Austin. And, apparently, it's a favorite of Lance Armstrong as well. Reservations highly recommended. Note that if you are looking for true sushi, this is not the place for you.
