Coming to Austin for Half Marathon in a few weeks

lilsoozi | Jan 29, 2013 07:27 AM

My husband and I came to Austin last year to run the Live Strong Half Marathon, and had so much fun we are coming back again this year. We are staying in the Travis Heights area, and will have a car.
I need recommendations for a 'nice' dinner on Friday night. This will be our 'Valentine's date', and would prefer somewhere that takes reservations. I have a reservation at Olivia now, but I've heard mixed review on that. Would love to try Barley Swine, but don't want the Friday night wait.

We plan on pizza for our pre-race meal Saturday, so where's the best place for a pie? And then, we'll want beer and burgers after the race on Sunday... where's the best spot for that?
Finally, is there anywhere we should hit on Monday for lunch and/or dinner that might be too crowded to visit on the weekend? We are wide open on that day.

Thanks for the help!
