Yankee(s) in Austin and We Need Your Advice

plumtart | Apr 30, 2010 08:31 PM

Ok so I'm the Yankee, and my beloved is from Texas originally. But it has been a LONG time since he's been home, hence our need of your help.

We'll be in town for three days only and I want to get in as much eating and drinking as we can in the short time so I'd love advice on the classics we shouldn't miss and some basics that out-of-towners just don't know about. And as far as our budget, I'd say its moderate with the ability to go big if a place or two are worth it.

-Best Chorizo Tacos (I know we'll hit Marias Taco Xpress but are there better places or different variations that we should try?)
-Weekday breakfast (I remember Kirby Lane Pancakes for some reason. Can't recall if they are any good or not...)
-Mexican corn
-Best Milkshake/frozen treat
-Good and/or cheap micheladas + beer or an otherwise great drinks scene

-A Healthy Smoothie ( Jamba Juice does not count)
-Strong Delicious make your mind-spin espresso
-A Really Great Hangover Curing Burger
-Darn yummy baked goods for breakfast etc.

I know those are a lot of things to request info on but I'd love to hear if you have suggestions for only even one of the above.

Thanks a zillion!
We're so excited to be heading down.
