Shut Out in South Austin

I never get south during the week for lunch, so I was excited that I needed to be on S. Lamar today at lunchtime.

I hadn't had a Maria's Taco XPress pastor taco in a while and I was having a craving...stopped into the new place and although it's a bit more upscale, it's still got that campy attitude of the original but much to my shock, the guy behind the counter said they didn't have any pastor yet! wtf? Are you kidding me? Strike one.

Well, that's okay, I thought. I can just go down the street to FlipHappy. It's a nice, cloudy day and a gooey crepe sounded good, too. Pull up and to my chagrin, FlipHappy is closed on Tuesdays. grrr. Strike two.

In desperation, I had heard good things about PTeddy's (or whatever the burger joint on Lamar/Barton Springs is called). Well, they must be good cuz the line was outrageous and I couldn't afford that kind of time. Strike three...and here I sit at my desk with a rumbly-tummy and a bag of crappy Sunchips...
