I don't know if I ever posted this here before, but I just want to say that Chowhound works! Before I went to Austin, Texas, I asked for suggestions. I was not steered wrong. In fact, they told me to visit a tex-mex restaurant I would NEVER have found if I had relied on the tourist information stand or my hotel. It was literally one of the best tex-mex meals I've ever had (Polvos, if anybody is wondering). And I know American-Mex, having lived in California for a few years. Also, they steered (bad pun, but I couldn't resist) toward some of the best BBQ ever, in Lockhart, Texas. Major yum. Again, I never would have found it if it wasn't for friendly and patient Texas chowhounds.
Anyway, I just wanted to show my appreciation of Chowhound. It rocks!
