Lockhart, Texas estimates over 250,000 come to their town to eat BBQ. Blacks, Smitty's, Kreuz serve meat unlike anything you or the other 250,000 people have eaten. And while you're looking for BBQ, drive to Llano and Elgin for some more! Not in Austin, but close enough.
New Oriental Market is a small Korean grocery store with a cafe in the back. Comforting and filling Korean favorites like bibimbap will set you back around $5, including complimentary side dishes and tea.
Make the quick trip up to Round Rock Donuts to pick up a giant Texas Donut, featured on Man vs. Food. Make sure you come hungry, though, because this delicious treat is about twice the size of your face.
Take a little road trip down to Lockhart, the BBQ capital of Texas. There are plenty of great BBQ places to choose from, but you really can't go wrong with Smitty's Market, a little dining hall with small prices and huge flavor. You'll sweat a bit ordering your meat in front of the massive BBQ pit out back, but trust me when I say that it'll be more than worth it.
Eff Yeah Austin! I really like this guy's blog, in case you can't tell. Lots of awesome Austin photos. In fact, 3 of the last 4 pins to this board have come from it. Definitely worth checking out if you have a minute.
Visit the Whole Foods Market and headquarters building on Lamar. Pick up some groceries, cool off with some gelato, or load up a plate at their delicious buffet. For an extra awesome experience, check out the Sunset Supper Cinema, an awesome collaboration with Alamo Drafthouse that includes a movie on the terrace and a gourmet meal.
Check out Halcyon, a unique bar/lounge on Fourth Street that features (or maybe featured...I know they had some fire hazard issues) s'mores that you cook yourself at your table. Maybe not the best idea at the end of a night of drinking and dancing, but pretty cool nonetheless.
Dig into some brisket and ribs at The County Line. Don't pass on their homemade bread, either. It's especially good when topped with a generous bit of honey butter and washed down with a glass of ice cold sweet tea.
