AUSTIN - Large Group (50-60 ppl) Dining

Hey Chowhounds,

I've searched through the old posts but can't find a restaurant to fit what I'm looking for. I'm having a get together of about 50-60 college students (aged 18-21).

Restaurants that I have already considered are The County Line, Buca di Beppo, Rudy's, The Salt Lick, Z'tejas, Iron Works, and Matt's El Rancho. Some of these were crossed off the list due to inability to seat such a large group, a minimum $$ required that was beyond our budget, too far, or unpopularity of cuisine.

I'm shooting for ~$10-15/person. We're going for pretty common cuisines, such as BBQ, Italian, American etc. Mexican/Tex-Mex doesn't seem to be too popular, but I'd definetly still appreciate suggestions that fall into that category. I'd like to keep the drive time from UT campus to ~20 minutes. This is not a requirement, but it would be a huge plus if the restaurant is native to Austin (half the group will be freshman students that are relatively new to the area).

Thanks in advance for your help and/or suggestions!
