Back From the Heart of Texas

We just returned from a fun quick trip to Texas. We attended a wedding on Lake LBJ outside Austin, and then we took the chance to visit both Austin and San Antonio, along with touring some of the Hill Country.

So after spending some time in that region of Texas, I can definitely see the appeal. From the urban young feel of Austin and the University of Texas,


to the beauty of Lake LBJ and the Hill Country,


to the Alamo and the Riverwalk,


there's a lot to see there. So add it to your list if you haven't been.

Westy - Fun pics. If you would have told me that you were going to to San Antonio, I would've had OD take you out for some good barbecue and some good Tex-Mex!

For future reference, what restaurants would he recommend going to if you have 2 nights in San Antonio?

Chairman said...

Well, for sure, you have to hit up Rudy's BBQ, which is on the edge of town. I feel jilted if I make it to SA and don't eat at Rudy's.

As far as Tex-Mex goes, there's a little hole in the wall taqueria called "Taco Taco" that's quite good.

I'll drop him a line to see about the 2 places he'd go for.

As for Austin, I was only there once and had the good fortune of eating at the Salt Lick.

We went to County Line BBQ in San Antonio, which was recommended.

In Austin, we sent to Shady Grove, which was also recommended.
