Torchy's Tacos
So, let me just start by saying- I. LOVE. TACOS. And I have pretty high expectations for said tacos. AND I tend to get a craving for them when most places are shutting down. Well, lo and behold to find that Torchy's is open til 10 on weekdays and 11 on weekends! When I got there, Queen was playing. The guy behind the counter asked me about my day like he genuinely cared. There's Maine Root in the soda fountain. And the food is also fantastic!Since this first experience, I've frequented Torchy's Tacos several times a month. I used to always get the Baja Shrimp and the Fried Avocado tacos.Baja Shrimp is generously filled with hand battered and fried (but not greasy) shrimp, pickled vegetables, queso fresco and lime. There is a great balance of spicy, acidic and cool flavors all wrapped up in the tortilla. The Fried Avocado is a hand battered and fried avocado with refried beans, shredded cheese, lettuce and tomato. I love the texture and creamy flavors of this taco! It is so good, and I never order vegetarian items. But in the past couple years I've rotated in other flavors.The Democrat is filled to bursting with barbacoa. I was really impressed with the quality of it considering that Torchy's isn't exactly Mexican food. It is very flavorful and not greasy at all. You gotta get the Trailer Park "trashy"- fried chicken smothered in green chile queso and pico de gallo. Creative and delicious- this one is a guilty pleasure!I actually got to Green Chile Pork by mistake one time. Although it's not what I ordered, it is pretty dang tasty. The pulled pork is juicy and flavorful and the green chiles- of which I'm not a huge fan- do not overpower anything. But, the customer service at Torchy's is outstanding. I called to let them know my order got mixed up- just to make sure someone else didn't get the taco I ordered and they put me down for a free taco. I really appreciated their customer care! There is a different taco of the month each month that coordinates with holidays or weather, and they are generally pretty great.And lastly, I always ALWAYS get extra Chipotle Sauce and Poblano Sauce no matter which tacos I order. I could drink that stuff!

Manny Hattan's New York Delicatessen
The last time my wife and I ate here was in 2006. As a New Jersey born (City Slicker) we moved to Texas in 2004 in search for a better life. And during our journey we stumbled upon Manny Hattan's with an empty stomach and high hopes for some good food. We were not disappointed. As a matter of fact we loved the food and the atmosphere so much that we made it a road trip from our home in Killeen just to have lunch. I don't remember the food we ordered but I do recall the experience was well worth the ride. Since 2007, we have relocated back to the East Coast and to my surprise, I am saddened to learn that Manny Hattan's has closed. Even for the short few years we lived in Texas this establishment was and will always be the topic of our discussion when it comes to good food. Texas has really made an impression on this city boy!

Whole Foods Market
You can get any and everything there! Nothing can be compared to this Whole foods. Sandwiches, build-your-own salads, prepared meals, tacos, Chinese food, pizza, the awesome juice bar and the list goes on and on & Variety, volume of people, food stations and choice are unbelievable. Among-st all these they haven't forgotten their Visual appeal as well. Their cafe is as awesome as well. Just walking through the store and taking in the selection is an experience in itself, and it can easily get you crazy and mind-boggled if you are a foodie !!! Plus, they have a lot of nice & healthy recipes available on their website. This flagship store is an amazing foodie Disneyland.he he (I really get crazy on what to eat or not)

Torchy's Tacos
Literally as good as it gets. People always used to talk about how tacos were amazing in Texas and I always just thought to myself "how good can a taco get." Torchy's. Blew. My. Mind. It expanded what I thought were the limits of good Mexican food. I got a jerk chicken taco and a Mr. Pink, both of which had such a strong incredible flavor and fresh meats that it knocked my socks off on their dirt patched ground at this food truck stop. We also got some queso to share with the group and that really set me off right as it had some red pepper floating around and had a consistency that wasn't too drippy but also not too thick as to turn to lard when cooled. oh my god. If you get a chance do NOT miss this.

Torchy's Tacos
The people here are so FRIENDLY, open-minded, and willing to work with my girlfriend and I, who are deaf. I have to have gluten free foods, but sometimes I forget to carefully look at what I order.I originally ordered Fried Avocado and The Indepedent... not realizing they are fried in battered! When they brought it, I apologized to them for my fault in not asking about the batter. They were just fine with it and went ahead to make it without he batter!And... let me tell you, I'm from CA... it is DELICIOUS! Their chips, corn tortilla, and just the ingredients themselves... mouth-watering. Plus the love from the workers makes this taste even better :)Thank you Torchy Tacos!

Torchy's Tacos
My sentiments towards Torchy's are like that of a lover. To me, it is perfect. It keeps me on my toes and coming back for more again and again. I love discovering new things that Torchy's brings to the table-- like it's Roscoe waffle taco piled high with a fried egg, fried chicken, bacon, and drizzled with ooey gooey maple syrup, that is undeniably the best breakfast taco I've touched my lips to. I don't need any other taco restaurant because Torchy's is the Renaissance Restaurant. Most recently, I was blown away by the Trailer Park ("trash" style, aka covered in queso), Baja Shrimp (they didn't skimp!), and vegetarian fried green chile varieties.

68 Degrees Kitchen-Classic Italian-Inspired Restaurant
I scheduled reservation; the parking was easy, 68 degrees located next to Deep Eddy Cabaret which I had not been to in years, so it was fun to walk by a familiar Austin establishment as we entered the restaurant. The food was excellent, I had the Grilled Trout, and my date had the chicken parmesan. The atmosphere was elegant but relaxed, and it made for a very nice evening. When you have chosen a new place to dine especially in a new relationship it really can make or break the evening what restaurant you choose. I can recommend 68 degrees, and I wanted to take the time to say thanks for a great evening. All the best Eric

Torchy's Tacos
I. Love. These. Tacos.I love tacos in general. But Torchy's Tacos are some next level sh**. Do people cuss on Yelp? Idk. I'll censor it to be safe. Hi, kids.Seriously, though. The Mr. Pink and the Crossroads are incredible. Flavorful, cooked perfectly, with the right amount of kick. The Mr. Orange and the Democrat are also great. The guacamole is some of the best I've ever had. I've ordered it multiple times and it's always been fresh, with huge chunks of avocado. Can't go wrong with the Green Chile Queso and Street Corn. And the Diablo Sauce. YES.

68 Degrees Kitchen-Classic Italian-Inspired Restaurant
I have been for lunch and dinner, both were outstanding meals. For lunch I had the Caesar salad and fettuccine for dinner the salmon they have many more options I noticed other tables enjoying along with my friend who had Linguine and Tuna so I look forward to my next visit. Great option I don't think anyone would be disappointed going to this locally owned restaurant on Lake Austin Blvd where Mangia Pizza was located for years as a point of reference for any longtime Austin residents.

H-E-B
I shop at this HEB at least once a week and each and every week, though I ask the packers to pack my bags light (I am an 80 year female and I have to unload those bags when I get home!) they never do. I believe it is a lack of proper training in customer satisfaction and I suggest to the supervisors that they look into this practice. Just now they had put a half gallon milk, a large bottle of lemonade plus two large bottles of Dr. Pepper in the same bag. Give me a break!

Just a moment...
