Any tips for a nice hotel in downtown Austin? Looking for something like the "w" or westin, but not as pricey.
The Hilton is nice and I don't think it's as expensive as the W almost 8 years ago
Jovitas is nice, plenty of live music. Draughthouse is a my husbands and I's favorite. Make sure you try a 512 pecan porter...amazing. almost 8 years ago
Definitely second the Chuy's! I work there and eat most of my meals there. Make sure to ask for creamy jalapeno when they bring your complimentary chips and salsa! Boom boom is a great sauce too for your burrito or enchilada. I was actually unaware that there is such a thing as pork-based bbq. All the aforementioned bbq places are fabulous. In a couple weeks, a New York Italian restaurant will be opening in the W hotel called Coal Vine's. I'll be working there and if it's anything like the one I worked at in Dallas, it will be phenomenal. It specializes in New York style pizza, thin crust cooked in a coal burning oven, but also has salads, appetizers(salmon tartar is amazing!), pasta, and fish dishes. almost 8 years ago
