Urban Lounge

“My husband and I have been to Urban, An American Grill, twice and have REALLY enjoyed ourselves on both occassions. Granted, we did go both times with a coupon/discount -- one Groupon and one Eversave. Both times we've had the jumbo scallops which are AMAZING. I think these are the best scallops I'v... ”

Suelo Nuevo Bar & Grill

 1 star(s)  (01/27/2011)
“bad Mexican Food...really bad mexican food. Don't do it. These people don't have a clue and it shows. If you want Taco-bell like menu offerings except worse quality, it's the place for you. Even Taco Cabana has better Margaritas. What's up with that?”

Mister Tramps

 5 star(s)  (09/15/2010)
“Excellent food and draft beer selection, a true neighborhood bar feel with great staff. Surrounded by TVs for every major event, but especially like the huge screen in the back room.”

Latin Cafe Austin

 1 star(s)  (03/27/2009)
“No customers there, we went around 1:30 pm on a Friday afternoon. Food was below average. Taste was not good,the potato cake was interesting. Will not go back, not a good place to go. Everything we had was terrible. Chips were stale, no salsa at the table, Sprite was flat. Small signs like these ref... ”

Paggi House

 5 star(s)  (02/27/2009)
“Great Girls' Night Happy Hour! My girlfriends and I dropped into Paggi House last week for their happy hour. (New owners & recent remodel.) Comfy patio seating with a great view and nice wine. We liked it so much we came back for more this week. The staff was attentive and helpful. The cheese plate ... ”

Burger King Restaurants

 1 star(s)  (12/02/2008)
“12/2/2008 4:00 PM-- I visited the Burger King drive through at Anderson Mill and 183 this afternoon during off-peak hours. There was NO ONE in line and the automated recording asked to take my order. I waited until I got the human voice and clearly gave my order. She clearly wasn't listening to me... ”

Boulevard Bar & Grill

 5 star(s)  (05/19/2008)
“Small local neighborhood place, but AWESOME food! They are in the running for the best burgers in town! We go there at least 3 times a month just for the burgers! Awesome food!”

Hill Country Pasta House

 5 star(s)  (08/21/2007)
“We just moved here from Colorado about 4 years ago and are Austin natives. We have eaten Italian food in 34 states and in Italy. This place is the best. Authentic, Friendly, Owner Operated, Kid Friendly, Quaint, and just plain great atmosphere with awesome flavors. We started going to the Hill Count... ”

“The drive thru consistently gets the order wrong so even though the food is OK it is not what is ordered - check your bag!”

Cool River

 5 star(s)  (11/27/2005)
“Great food and great atmosphere!”

The Water Tank

“I have never dined at the water tank, but I have had a few too many drinks there. It is your typical dive bar. Very fun if you are up for it. It is located in Williamson County though, so be prepared to make it an early night.”
