They say that everything is bigger in Texas and the same must be true when it comes to appetites because you can’t walk two steps in Austin without seeing an amazing restaurant. Seriously, you can’t spit without hitting one and if you aren’t hearing about them on the radio you’re seeing ads for some of the best restaurants in Texas inserted between your favorite shows on your Direct TV Austin service. In fact, there are so many restaurants that I have created a small list of ones you really need to check out.
1. Uchi and Uchiko – One has a taste of the present and one gives you a taste of the past, both are fantastic Japanese dining options and a breath of fresh air in a state mostly predominated by barbecue and fried foods.
2. Green Pastures Restaurant – Looking like an old country home on the outside, you will get an authentic dining experience the way it used it be done way back when.
3. Threadgill’s – Learn the meaning of “dang” in a restaurant where the ambiance is like you’ve entered into an old Western.
And that’s just to start. There are so many more so get out there and treat yourself.
