If you’re in Austin for the big SXSW tech and music trade show, you may be wondering where you can grab some grub in between panels and parties.
From classic Texas BBQ to some out-of-this-world tacos, there’s plenty of great food in Austin.
You can't go to Texas without getting BBQ, and the Salt Lick is arguably one of the most fun places to do it. Residents and visitors to Austin are crazy about their brisket and ribs, and it's all cooked on the most insane pit you'll ever see. The original location is about 20 miles outside of Austin, in Driftwood, in addition to locations in Round Rock and the airport.
This may not be your typical Austin cuisine, but it's a treat nonetheless. Zagat gave this longtime sushi favourite top marks in food quality and popularity with residents. The sushi dishes are inventive and unique, like a foie gras nigiri and tuna sashimi made with goat cheese.
This restaurant, which was formerly run out of an East Austin trailer, is known for its exceptional brisket and pulled pork. It opens at 11 a.m. and closes whenever they run out of food.
