Another thread was just becoming interesting, to me(food wise), when it was closed. I did a search for " good food/ non-restaurant " places and received only a few location(state)-specific hits.
I'm interested in good-to-great food and beverages served at non-restaurant venues. You know...the bowling alley with the great chili or the skating rink with killer nachos. Food you would consider asking the staff "do you have the recipe for...." even though you might be slightly chagrined to do so.
This post started my train of thought:
"I can only vouch for the bowling alley. http://thegoodnightaustin.com/
If you're ever there, go."
If there is another thread already covering this (nationally) please redirect and delete my post.
My contribution would be:
Nice to find a "real" coffee shop on a college campus.
