A few high school buddies that have since moved all over and had families are picking Austin as a spot in the middle that no one has been to and that we've all wanted to visit.
Would love some recommendations on fun eating places with good food and good atmosphere. We're all in our mid 30's and not looking for a "scene" necessarily or fine linen cloth dining. We like everything...tex-mex, Mexican, BBQ, steaks, etc. One of the guys is a veggie but we're not holding that against him.
Also, if there's a favorite bar/lounge for grabbing a drink, listening to music, revisiting blown up stories from high school and college days, i'd love to hear about those too.
