  1. The Monument Cafe on Austin Ave. is very good. That's the only restaurant i've been to within the last 3 years, can't vouch for any others, sorry.

    Also, you might have more luck posting this on the Austin board.

    1. If you want something more upscale but cheap by Austin standards I recommend Wildfire.
      There is also a great little cafe whose name I can't remeber right on the corner of the square in the center of Georgetown and a great mexican dive about 2 blocks norh of the Monument Cafe, which is okay too.

      1. Thanks, The Monument Cafe looks interesting.

          You are welcome, might want to ask about BBQ on the Austin board, i know this area has good BBQ (at least better than what we are used to in Dallas).

        2. A side trip over to Taylor for barbecue at Louis Mueller's would be well worth your time. One of the top 5 in TX on most people's lists, top 1 or 2 for many.

          I've been to Monument just once; it was okay but nothing really special.

            I've been to Monument many times, and always good. However, not extremely recently. Like I said, Austin board could offer more help.

          2. I don't remember the name but, there is an Italian restaurant in Georgetown that's terrific. Shouldn't be too hard to find out, though.
            And yes, a side trip to Taylor for a visit to Louie Mueller's BBQ is a must. It's #1 in my book!

            1. We had lunch at the Monument Cafe on Saturday. I thought the food was pretty good, I would definitely eat there again. One of the waiters saw the name of my son's High School on his T-shirt. Turns out his mother is one of the Administrators at the school, a small world as they say.

                Didn't rank "really good" anymore? That's a shame, it used to be the best place in town.
                Did you dine anywhere else worth mentioning? Georgetown is a really cute little town.

                  We were there for Open House at Southwestern University, when the program was over we headed back to Dallas. I agree the town looks like it is real interesting. .

                    I was told that the Monument closed. Anyone know for sure?

                      We were just there last weekend, place was pretty busy.

                        Glad to hear it!

              2. There is a good little Thai restaurant just off the square. Its called Dia Thai.

                1. Silver and Stone in Georgetown will provide a lovely lunch experience. They have a very nice patio with a great view. Here's a link to the lunch menu: http://www.silverstonerestaurant.com/...
