Dinner between College Station and Austin?

I'm headed to A&M tomorrow for Aggie Pumpfest. I'm probably going to head back to Austin sometime between 6 and 8pm. Any suggestions for dinner on the way back?

Normally, I'd stop by Crosstown BBQ, but I heard they closed (say it ain't so). I suppose I could detour to Snow's, but I'm carpooling with a buddy who probably isn't going to want to drive that far out of the way (and they're not even open for dinner, are they?)

I'm open to (and would actually prefer) something besides BBQ. I just listed Snow's and Crosstown because those are the two places I know of that are near my route.
