What part of Austin?

Torchys is good but it is crazy busy around noon. There are locations in Austin, Round Rock and Cedar Park.

Noon Saturday stay away from downtown. The chuys children giving to children parade will be ending around that time.

Side of town matters a lot. You coming in from Houston? Which way 71 or 290?

I know you said price doesn't matter but none of these are expensive. Do you want unique or places only in Austin? Only in Austin, I'd suggest:
If South - Shady Grove or Threadgills
Central/West - Hula Hut
Capital area - Texas Chili Parlor
North - Stiles Switch BBQ or Threadgills

As others have said Torchy's tacos is good too.

Bangers's Sausage and Brew House. 132 beers on tap. Awesome food. Head chef is Ted Prater, ask for him and tell him Greg Mueller sent you, he will take care of you!

Salty Sow. Best part is it’s out of the downtown/campus area mess and crowds. Look it up on yelp. You won’t be disappointed.
South Congress Cafe if you want to do the trendy/tourist area. Food is excellent once you get past the sidewalk weirdos. There is a old cowboy singer that hangs out in front and he’s actually fun to listen to.

I've lived in Austin nearly all my life, and my favorite place right now is Sao Paulo's.

Check out the reviews here: https://www.yelp.com/biz/sao-paulos-restaurant-austin

My favorite menu items are the beef cebollado, pollo magdalena, beef milanesa, and beef stroganoff (Brazillian style of course). Their tiny cheesey rolls are like nothing I've ever had and come with every meal.


I second Ranch 616 and Evangeline's as other great spots.

You provided so much help with that post. Not only are you wrong about '"tourist" places but you didn't even offer a suggestion. What is a tourist restaurant?

Ain't that the truth

I say Magnolia Cafe on Congress...or perhaps Jack Allens Kitchen. Or a plethora of hole in the walls I don't know most by name, I just jump in the passenger seat when I'm visiting family and go wherever they wanna go

Check out gourdoughs on south Lamar, they have all kinds of sandwiches, breakfast, and burgers, but the bread is like a donut. Ate there once and can't wait to go back. Fun atmosphere.

Huts Hamburgers or Sams BBQ if you're downtown; Moonies has the best Hamburgers but it's up in Cedar Park.

Fancy and a little hipster, but Dai Due is great. And the chef is a very active hunter and proponent of using everything. Teaches hog butchery and cooking classes too. Also wrote a great book about cooking wild game called Afield.
