I just signed up. I have read all of the past posts regarding happy hours in austin...and the topic major thread that is a few years old...
Can we start over with current info?
South Austin is really all that's left of Austin...but I get up to university and downtown sometimes...
Yuppie chain restaurants downtown? I guess so, if they are really good.
Manuel's is great!
Surely there is something new?
My current pick is Uncle Billy's on Monday Nights...chopped beef and chix (even though I suspect that it is the weekend leftovers)...good beer selection, the beer sampler/flight is good for two.The staff is very cool! Marlon will treat you right!!! El es mi tocayo!
...and finally...off topic...but (imho) "tex-mex" is a (bad) regional mexican cuisine...just add a bunch of plastic yellow cheese and sour cream to bland food...and you pretty much have it...the chile relleno at matt's is great though! If I'm eatin' mexican: Borrego De Oro...or Torchy's...is that tex mex?
...also off topic...during the hatch chile season...the portobello hatch "burger" on the porch at whole foods is GREAT...and Lyndon gives good service!
