You can't beat a strong, spicy bloody mary, and Sazon knows it. Expect traditional Mexican dishes (like cactus leaf salad!) with a few Tex-Mex twists.
Summers in Austin are hot, and so is Uncle Billy's BBQ! After a hot afternoon at Barton Springs, I love nothing better then to cool off at Uncle Billy's, sitting on the patio under some misters enjoying a nice cold beer!
This fun food truck has everything from smoothies to tamales, but the frozen yogurt is a must have. If you're lucky the flavor of the day will be pomegranate and you can top it off with Oreos.
No reservations on Friday or Saturday, but well worth the wait! Awesome beer and wine list and everything we tried from the small, unique menu was phenomenal. This is a real Austin gem!

My favorite TexMex happy hour! Free chips and queso and stellar margaritas. For dinner? The chicka chicka boom boom. And always ask for creamy jalapeño dip to enjoy with chips!

The wait for a crepe from Flip Happy is worth every ounce of sweet or savory goodness. Every item on the menu is worth a try, but I always get a kick of the ham and gruyere, the…

Umami Mia Pizzeria. Umami Mia offers a modern and casual take on Italian food sourced from local / organic providers whenever possible. Get the coppa appetizer and the Italian salad, you will not be disappointed. They have a huge selection of modern cocktail drinks and many pizza options (the mushroom and fig / proscuitto are quite good). I tried the carbonara as well, which was a solid pasta dish.… read more
