Here's some short takes on some recent meals:
Enoteca Vespaio: Really tasty but not cheap. I had the stuffed shells with meat on the recommendation of the person sitting next to me at the bar who was back for for the third day that week. I'm planning to go back.
Tan My (formerly Tan Tan): Inexpensive Vietnamese with really good pho. I had the Pho Tai Nam Gan, and it was loaded with tasty meats. Seemed like a lot of interesting restaurants worth checking out nearby.
P. Terry's Burgers: The cheeseburger was lousy, and the chicken sandwich wasn't good either. Fries and shakes better, but not worth it. Is there a good home grown burger place here in Austin?
Mi Colombia: Good South American food. The aborrajado appetizer (fried sweet plaintain with cheese) was the highlight. The steak with the Bandeja Paisa was a bit tough, but the seasonings and sides were real good. Dining partner really liked the fish salad.
Tony's Southern Comfort: Comfy southern food. The chicken fried steak was done crispier than I was used too, but very flavorful. The yams as a side dish stole the show.
I realize these probably aren't that useful without context, but maybe they'll spur someone into some other recommendations...
