Austin, Galveston, Houston for Labor Day week

ValleyFever | Aug 19, 2008 02:14 PM

I am traveling to Texas for a music festival in Austin the last weekend of August, and then to my hometown (Sweeny) before heading up to Galveston for a few days, and then to Houston before flying back to Phoenix. We'll be in Texas a total of 9 days.

My girlfriend has never really had the chance to taste some of the better things Texas has to offer, so I would like to make this a memorable experience for her.

We are looking for dive/hole in the wall/mom and pop places that hit the spot, and dinners where the food outweighs everything else. Having grown up around the gulf coast, I know a few spots in Houston and Galveston but any advice is appreciated.

This is the area's we will be:

Austin: Emo's, Beerland, Mohawk area
Galveston: Northside of the Island staying at Hotel Galvez
Houston: We are going to the Improv so we want to have dinner in that area before the show.

Thanks for any and all suggestions.
