Austin - Tex Mex (Chuy's, Fonda San Miguel, Manuel's)

teejaymoore | Sep 9, 2008 09:32 PM

Heading to Austin tomorrow and looking for some recommendations. We have two dinners and I'm planning on the following:

1) Nice team dinner - Fonda San Miguel - I'm pretty set on this one as it looks like good food, good atmosphere for a nice dinner (and great margaritas). Reminds me of Javier's in Dallas which I like for those type of dinners.

2) Casual dinner - Manuel's or Chuy's? Looking for really good Tex Mex which is walking distance from the Hyatt or Sheraton in downtown Austin. Not sure either fit the bill, but preference between the two or any other recommendations for a restaurant nearby? I'm all about the food for this dinner. As a reference point, my favorite Tex Mex in Dallas is Mia's Tex Mex for their brisket tacos (willing to overlook the styrofoam ceiling tiles).

Appreciate any thoughts.
