Sam's is the perfect next choice for great BBQ in east Austin when a 3-hour wait at Franklin doesn't cut it. Sam's doesn't look like much from the outside but the brisket and ribs leave BBQ lovers full and satisfied.
The name says "sandwich," but this stone's-throw-from-12th-and-Chicon soul food spot dishes up much more than sandwiches from its cafeteria style platters.

Bennu Coffee. Twenty-four Bennu Coffee is a freelancer's/student's paradise -- not the least of which because of their electrical outlets, which hang, fire code approved I'm sure, from the ceiling. The coffee is wonderful and the food options have expanded, so when it's time for a lunch break -- or a midnight snack, depending on how the day's going -- I order a Fricano's Deli-edition Turkey Special. … read more
