[Austin] Tex-Mex or BBQ?

We will be in Austin Friday night. Any recommendations?

  1. will you not be there saturday morning? (that is the best time for mex or tex-mex imo..)

    1. We always make it a point to make it to Habaneros mexican Cafe located on Oltorf. Family owned and run for the last 10+ years. Great food, great atmosphere.

      1. If you are coming from Houston or San Antonio, make the diversion to City Market in Luling or Smitty's in Lockhart for the best in smoked meats (specifically brisket) that Texas has to offer.

        I also second the recommendation of Habanero's for dinner Friday night or breakfast Satruday morning
