I’m headed to South By Southwest (SXSW) in Austin, Texas, for the first time this week, and am quite excited. I’ve been wanting to visit Austin for quite a while, and see SXSW on top of it. Of course, I cannot be expected to endure such complete geekery without proper food so did some asking around for good restaurant/food suggestions. I received three so far from Joe Johnston, a local foodie and restauranteer who is very familiar with the Austin area.
Louie Mueller Barbecue in Taylor, TX.
Southside Market and Bar-B-Q in Elgin, TX. Told to try the hot sausage.
Cooper’s Old Time Pit Bar-B-Que in Llano, TX. I thought this might be too long of a drive, but looking at the Yelp reviews, I gotta check this out.
If you have any first hand accounts, add them in. I’ll post updates when I get to try them out!
Via @Jose602: Casino El Camino on Sixth Street for burgers. Tamale House for bfast tacos, Maria’s Taco Xpress for good stuff all around.
