Any lemonade recs?

Any recommendations for a good fresh squeezed lemonade here in town? Has anyone tried the lemonade at Mighty Fine Burgers?
I seem to remember it was pretty good at Salt Lick.
Further out of town, I had an awesome one at a food stand in Warrenton, TX during Antique Weekend (I ordered lemonade, and was in heaven when the girl yelled out "Dad-we need another lemonade", and Dad proceeded to make it right there on the spot. I was even happier when I realized the whole pitcher sized drink he was mixing was for me!

  1. My daughter had the lemonade at Mighty Fine earlier this week and it was practically water. It was very weak.

    My wife likes the lemonade at Hoover's. It comes in a quart-sized "individual serving" pitcher.

      Garden Spot on Burnet, my favorite HEALTHY lunch joint.

    2. Garden Spot is sort of in my neck of the woods. I will have to try it. I have been meaning to venture over there. Thanks!

      1. I love the Arnold Palmer (half tea/half lemonade) at McCormick and Schmick's. I haven't tried just the lemonade, but I would imagine that it would be good. It is fresh squeezed. I am also a little embarrassed to say that I love the lemonade from Chick Fil A. It's very sweet, but good.

          I was going to post that I love Chick-Fil-A's lemonade, too! I just had some the other day and while it is sweet, it's also pulpy and has a nice bite to it.

          I had the Daily Juice's blueberry lemonade at the farmer's market this weekend and really enjoyed it. It's sweetened with apple juice and a shot of agave nectar -- wholesome and delicious!

        2. I need to try the Mighty Fine Burgers. Lemon aid I'll probably be shot for this but at HEB they have a lemon aid called Simply Lemon aid in the orange juice section. To me that's the best in town.

            Must confess, I was impressed by the Simply Lemonade product as well...good juice, pulp and the whole nine yards...

          2. Friends report the lemonade at Blue Dahlia Bistro is very good.
