I had to try Black's BBQ to see how this old Texas tradition was. I ordered the family meal which was just under $20 and claimed to feed 4. There was plenty of sides but the meat was about enough for 3. It came with 1 pound of meat so what else to get but the brisket. The food was good, service was excellent, and it was worth the trip from Austin. This is cafeteria style not like typical restaurants but with BBQ and southern cooking it works great.
Pros:
Food, service, and downtown Lockhart location is close to shopping and historic sites.

Brick Oven is located in downtown Austin so it is convenient for people or work downtown or when there are festivals or events downtown like SXSW. The pizza was made to perfection and the brick oven gives the pizza just the right amount of crisp while keeping the dough from being well done. They are generous with there toppings as we ordered sausage and pepperoni. You can see the pizzas bake as the brick oven is located so you can watch them make these master pieces. I prefer thicker pizzas but this was one of the better thinner crust pizza I have had! There is also a large wine selection and other Italian favorites as well. There is a lot of space indoors so this is a perfect location for a birthday party, event, meeting, or other gatherings as they can section off part of the restaurant for privacy. The outdoor patio is a great way to enjoy this amazing Italian food along with the Austin weather and views!
Pros:
Excellent food, service was great, location is ideal

Went to Austin for SXSW and this was the first place we stopped for some grub and drinks. It was pretty (understandably) packed, but they manage it well with a numbered ordering system where you can just order straight from the bar. Pulled pork sandwich was massive and out of this world. Same with the chipotle bacon burger. Oh, and waffle fries to die for.
Pros:
Cool, weird little Austn/restaurant bar. Great drink selection and bonus points for featuring local breweries.
Cons:--
DON'T sit under the tree in the courtyard. My girlfriend got pooped on.
