Does "Austin Food" have a definition?

People traveling here (typically) are looking for three things: BBQ, TexMex, and Tacos. Is that the definition of Austin's culinary landscape? Yeah, we have a few Asian Places (nothing like Houston) and a smattering of other ethnicities. We have a lot of "foodie" places, but I'm not a foodie. Most TexMex places are glop (if they can't pass the Taco Cabana test, I will not go to that restaurant - except for El Patio).

Besides the three items listed above, what else do we have that's unique?
