    Not impressed. Fish tacos are bland. Ask for fresh jalapenos or more of the tomato salsa or something. They need help. Also, tiniest margaritas EVERRRRR. -- Sydney Williams via Foursquare

    I knew a wrestler by this same name. Sadly, when his special move, “Hug of a Thousand Needles,” proved a little too effective, he was forced to become the markedly less fearsome “Satin Willow.” -- The Most Interesting Man in the World via Foursquare

    A great playground for toddlers and kids from 1 - 12 with lots of seating and shade nearby. Also a good size lawn for playing. -- Visit Austin via Foursquare

    The most decadent brunch buffet with their "upscale" barbecue options, made-to-order steak benedicts and enough pastries and sides to fill in any empty spots on your plate. -- Serious Eats via Foursquare

    An exemplary burger lineup in the $5 to $9 range. This outpost can’t shake the strip-mall vibe, but location doesn’t make the matchstick fries any less delicious. The chili cheese sauce is addictive. -- Austin Chronicle via Foursquare

    They produce what has quickly become one of Austin's, if not Texas', most talked-about barbecue. It's so good they regularly run out of meat shortly after opening: get there early. [Eater 38 Member] -- Eater via Foursquare

    Reader tip: An absolute must for breakfast. Make sure to get there early - or you will wait. It's funky, and the food is great. Service is wonderful. -- The Wall Street Journal via Foursquare

    Brunch at Frank should begin with a Red Headed Stranger-- a Bloody Mary made with bacon-infused Tito's Vodka and garnished with cheddar cheese, pepperoncini, and a strip of bacon. -- Serious Eats via Foursquare

    Serves up high-quality comfort food, and is one of Austin's best destinations for both weekend brunch and late-night eats. Get the chicken and waffles and the sweet potato hash. [Eater 38 Member] -- Eater via Foursquare

    It's almost a cliche to recommend Torchy's in Austin, but the local chain has earned that recognition with creative combinations that stand out in a city full of tacos. [Eater 38 Member] -- Eater via Foursquare

    Chef Larry is throwing down on American favorites. -Tiffany Derry, Top Chef -- Bravo via Foursquare

    Banger's may be all about sausage, but it's a break from the rest of the Rainey Street yuppie meat market scene. Go for brunch and enjoy live music plus their towering Manmosas. [Eater 38 Member] -- Eater via Foursquare
