Austin BBQ Wars: Best Austin BBQ

Posted by on Dec 7, 2017 in Barbecue, Best Of, Reviews

Like any other red blooded Austinite, I love eating the entire panoply of smoked meats and fowl that most of us fondly refer to as “cue.” Unlike most other Austinites, however, I am a restaurant critic. In that capacity, I have traveled to many so-called meccas of BBQ including the Carolinas, Memphis, Kansas City, and […]

Clark Griswold has Nothing on The Oasis on Lake Travis!

Posted by on Dec 2, 2017 in Lake Travis, News, Rob's Blog

Every year when Christmas season rolls around, we inevitably watch Christmas Vacation at least a few times. The classic movie from National Lampoon has more than its share of illumination. But that’s a movie. If you want to see the real thing head out to The Oasis on Lake Travis. They know how to do […]

BBQ Wars Coming Soon: who has the best barbecue in Austin?

Posted by on Nov 27, 2017 in Barbecue, News, Rob's Blog

We’re about to take on a project dealing with the most hotly contested and ongoing Central Texas food argument that’s raged from downtown to The Hill country: who, in the Austin area, in our opinion, really has the best BBQ? It’s bound to make some folks happy while pissing other people off, but that’s what […]

Pizza Wars 2017 Part 2: Rankings 11-20

Posted by on Oct 14, 2017 in Best Of, Pizza, Reviews, Rob's Blog

11. Little Deli & Pizzeria You would think its rather out of the way location would would inhibit customer discovery, but any time we’ve been there the place has been packed. Why? Really good Jersey pizza. I love the aptly named The Italian. The sausage and red peppers work with onions to create a really […]

Pizza Wars 2017 Part 1: Rob’s Best Pizzas in Austin

Posted by on Oct 6, 2017 in Best Of, Pizza, Reviews, Rob's Blog

It’s hard to believe that this is our 17th year of Pizza Wars. Austin has turned into a world class city in the interim and the local pizza scene has evolved from a chain-driven environment to literally dozens of owner operated places. Given my background of growing up in the pizza rich environment of New […]

A First Look at Desano Pizzeria Napoletana

Posted by on Sep 16, 2017 in Italian, Pizza, Reviews, Rob's Blog

You wouldn’t expect a guy named Jimmy Fitzgerald to be running one of the hottest new pizza joints in town. But after a tasting at his new Desano Pizzeria Napoletana on Burnet, I must admit he’s on to something. In fact, the first moment I walked in I could tell by the smells wafting out […]

The Story Behind Big Cat BBQ

Posted by on Aug 28, 2017 in Barbecue, Rob's Blog

Sometimes the story behind a restaurant is as interesting or more so than the food itself. Such may be the case with Big Cat BBQ in Cedar Park and its founder James Jones. I first met James about a month ago when we joined KEYE meteorologist Chikage Windler and her family at Big Cat for […]

First Bites at Citizen Eatery Locally Sourced Vegetarian Restaurant

Posted by on Apr 24, 2017 in Healthy Dining, Reviews, Vegetarian

This is not a full review, but I was so impressed with Citizen Eatery on Burnet that I had to share this with you. This is a family owned business featuring vegetarian food. No, nothing as extreme at the former Beets on W. 5th but good, rib-sticking fare. I loved the Citizen Scramble, a rich, irresistible […]
