A friend and I will be driving through Texas in a couple weeks with short stops in Houston (dinner), Austin (lunch) and San Antonio (dinner), and I'd love to get some suggestions from locals on good, relatively inexpensive, authentically-Texan places to eat in these cities.
Here's the catch: I'm vegetarian. This probably rules out BBQ places! Texmex would be great, I just need some veggie-friendly options. Any thoughts/ideas would be greatly appreciated.
Also, we're hotel-hunting too and wondering which parts of town would be best in Houston and San Antonio?
