I know you're tired of the same old question, but...

Here's the deal. I am a loyal Chowhound from Austin Tx. I'll be in your great city for the first time next friday and, as usual, I need the usual advice. To preface the question let me say this, if you come to Austin and ask me where to eat dinner Friday night that will reflect all that is good about the Austin scene I wouldn't necessarily send you to the most expensive or the most outrageous, I'd send you to the most Austin. That might be to the Broken Spoke for a chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, cream gravy and biscuits, and, of course, a few spins around the dance floor to a live Country Western band; that might be to Dart Bowl for a bowl of their etherial enchiladas, so good and gooey and cheesey and fun that you just might have to walk out of the restaurant to the front desk, rent some shoes and bowl a line or two; or it might be to Dirty's on the drag for a double bacon cheese burger dripping with greasy goodness, and a side of rings washed down with a cold Pearl beer or two; or maybe even out MoPac north to Sunflower, the best Vietnamese restaurant this side of Hanoi, try the Crepe, try the Basil Shrimp, try not to walk out smiling! See, I don't really care if it costs a lot or a little, I'd say go where the heart of the City is. With that in mind, My wife and I will be staying at the Radisson Plaza-Warwick. We are on our own just Friday night (my daughter will be with us age 26). So tell me, where to eat?
