Jack Allen’s Kitchen

Jack Allen’s Kitchen 7720 Hwy 71 W Austin, TX 78735 People talk about locations being near or past the “Y” in Austin and it’s confusing. Anyone unfamiliar would assume they’re talking about a YMCA, as I did, and I couldn’t understand how I’d driven down 71...

Dirty Martin’s – talk dirty to me

Dirty Martin’s 2808 Guadalupe StAustin, TX 78705 I’ve never been in a burger joint with so many aliases. Dirty’s, Dirty Martin’s, Dirty Martin’s Kumbak, Martins Kumbak Place, Dirty Martin’s Place… no matter the exact moniker you may know it by, all signs point to the same...

Burger Tex

  Burger Tex 5420 Airport Blvd Austin, TX 78751 There aren’t that many variables in the world of eating burgers. Sure, sometimes you’ll see interesting and unusual ingredients (like the peanut butter & bacon burger), and of course there is a huge difference between the two...

HAYMAKER

Haymaker 2310 Manor Rd Austin, TX 78722 Some people say it’s unfair to review a place within the first two weeks/month of it being open. Since Haymaker was approximately 48 hours old when I visited, you should definitely consider this a recommendation, not a review. I suspect...

Spec’s Deli

Spec’s   4970 W Hwy 290 Austin, TX 78735 Most of the time people don’t carry high expectations for eating at food outlets within a retail space. Maybe the McDonalds inside a Walmart. Or a mediocre cafe within a department store. Newsflash!! Here’s an eatery within a...

Charlie’s Grill & Golf

Charlie’s Grill & Golf 714 S Washington St Fredericksburg, TX 78624 The best part about taking a day trip or road trip is the thrill of adventure. Wondering what picturesque old house you might stumble across that could become your next Facebook cover pic. Or which...

High tower vs short stack

Not all burgers are created equal. Sure, there are the usual variables of bacon, blue cheese, ranch, stuffed patty and so forth, but on a more basic level, burgers can be split into two core species. So different is the eating experience of the...

Fleming’s Steakhouse

Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar  320 E 2nd St Austin, TX 78701 The Aussie dollar has plummeted over the last few weeks, losing around 10c against the US dollar. And while that’s not as bad as back in the dark ages when my money used...

Herby K’s

Herby K’s 1833 Pierre Ave Shreveport, LA 71103 Shreveport is probably best known for it’s rather depressing riverfront Casino gambling and  houses which appear in the True Blood opening credits. Suffice to say, it’s not Louisiana’s biggest tourist drawcard. I myself ended up there on a...

The Frisco

The Frisco 6801 Burnet Rd Austin, TX 78757   Every now and again, I stumble upon a real gem of a place. I’m not saying that I’m Columbus when discovering eateries, but sometimes there are places that have been around for eons and just haven’t made...
