I just got back from Austin. Spent my time eating at Roy's, Chuy's at Town Lake, Rudy's and Salt Lick 360.
I thought Roy's was overrated. Everyone had raved about the braised beef ribs, mahi mahi and chocolate molten dessert. I liked the beef but I've had everything else better elsewhere.
Chuy's was great for atmosphere and tasty food for low prices but not sure if I would return. Once is enough.
Rudy's was great. Never had better BBQ brisket and ribs. Loved the atmosphere too. I would go eat there every week if I lived in Austin.
My question is: where should I go when I come back the next time? Eddie V's? County Line? Iron Works? Whole Foods? Or the sandwich place that everyone told me about? What is a good restaurant to try on 6th Street?
I am not concerned about price. Just someone who likes tasty food and no pretense. Can be diner or fine dining. Thanks.
