When I mention Austin, TX to anyone who has been there or heard of it, the two things people always seem to talk about are the music and the food. My favorite of those two things is obviously the food. So, when we spent our weekend in Austin, I made sure that we hit up some of my favorite restaurants, but we also tried quite a few new places that were just as amazing. I left 10 pounds heavier than when I arrived, but it was worth every dang calorie.
The first restaurant we went to the morning after we arrived was Kerbey Lane Café. Honestly, there is no better breakfast. I am mildly obsessed with their cinnamon roll pancakes, and anywhere that you can get queso with your breakfast is a 5 star restaurant in my eyes.
Another one of our favorites is Rudy’s. While this is a chain BBQ place, I’ve never had better brisket or better BBQ sauce (go order some at that link immediately!) anywhere else. You eat your heaping pile of meet off of butcher paper while drenching everything in Rudy’s Sauce, and it’s all pure joy. Also, don’t forget the potato salad.
We ate Mexican food a handful of times. Between Gloria’s and Torchy’s, we were taco snobs by the end of the week. One thing I love about Austin is that you can go to any restaurant and find queso that is above average. I could drink it all.
Also, can’t forget Shake Shack. Heart eyes.
The long weekend was full of good food that we stuffed our faces with without hesitation.
