I'm coming to visit Austin this week (Wednesday-Saturday eve). Thanksgiving is taken care of, but I have no plans for other meals.
I've only been to Austin once and it was probably about 4 years ago. I amazingly got to try Franklin BBQ before it was what it is today and it was excellent. As much as I'd like to go back, I will not be waiting on a multi-hour line to try it again.
I'm looking for moderately priced (under $30 entrees) lunches and dinners. Ideally I'd love to eat at local spots and holes in the wall. I am aware of the high end spots like Uchi and I'd love to try it, but I won't be too upset if it doesn't work out - we have pretty good sushi here in NYC.
I'd so much appreciate your suggestions (and happily return the favor for anyone visitng NYC)! Thank you in advance!
