Looking for best meat loaf in Austin
I have to agree with Helen Corbitt when she penned her comment on meat loaf, that it "can be a sorry concoction or a thing of gastronomical delight" (Helen Corbitt's Cookbook, Houghton Mifflin Co.) Where in Austin have you found really good, down home meat loaf like you had when you were a kid....or wished you had had?
Artz Rib House does an outstanding version as a lunch special each and every day. Very little (in fact, probably no) tomato sauce, which is a plus for me. Great brown gravy, Comes with mashed potatoes and corn.
We ate at Woodland (S. Congress) on Sunday and tried the meatloaf. Huge portions, good texture, chunky tomato sauce (I myself prefer the BBQ-like sweet, smooth sauce).
Just watch out for the staff to be slow, the drinks to be BYOB, and them to be out of a ton of things. New place, new quirks.
We will go back.
i used to work in the bank one (now chase bank?) building on 6th and in the basement is a cafe called Apple Annies. They have great, fresh food (some of my lunch faves were their salad sampler and tomatoe brie soup!) and on thursdays they always had meatloaf. I never had meatloaf in my life until Apple Annie's, so I may not know what it's supposed to be like, but it is the best I've had in Austin so far. On friday's they did meatloaf sandwiches (i suppose from leftovers) which was always a treat.
