I'm a chowhound from New Orleans and I'd like your help in recommending a few restaurants; this is my first visit to Austin--I'm coming for the Austin City Limits Music festival which takes place Sept. 19-21.
I'll be meeting a friend from Boston who has never been to the South before so he's in for CULTURE SHOCK!! I'd really like to take him to some great restaurants--Mexican and margaritas, breakfast suggestions, BBQ, anything really!!
Also, we have motel reservations at the LaQuinta near the State Capitol (300 E. 11th St.). It's not too far from the shuttle to the festival. Any feedback about the motel?
We're really looking forward to a long weekend of great music, good times and great food! I'd appreciate any suggestions from you Texas Chowhounds!
