      Head down to Laredo and get an eyeball taco. I don't know of any place in Austin serves them.

        Interesting, have you tried these? Are these at a restaurant you know of?

          No. A friend from Laredo was a fan. From his description, they chop up the eyes and saute them. He swears they were tasty. I personally think the texture would be a bit creepy.

        The spiciest and most delicious sandwich on planet Earth is the "Garlic H-Bomb at Buster's BBQ in Lakeway (outside Austin). It's pork shoulder stuffed with garlic and Jalapenos. Then, when they fix the sandwich, they ask if you want more jalapenos and you nod vigorously. You devour it--it's impossibly good. Then, in about , oh, 30 minutes or so, your belly feels like a Enewetak Atoll circa 1952...but in a good way. Great sandwich.

          The Mexican White Wings at hill's cafe or the tavern. It's unbreaded chicken strips stuffed with serrano peppers, wrapped in bacon, then deep fried and doused in a cayenne sauce. spicy, but great.
