What makes Texas-style BBQ ribs so delicious? The Sklar Brothers think they know the secret. They’re just not quite on the same page about how to get them. Jason thinks he can buy the ingredients and make delicious ribs himself in NYC, while Randy argues he cannot only get better ribs, but he can also get them faster by jumping on the next flight to Austin, TX. Watch as they use the JetBlue Card to find out what’s truly faster and tastier in the latest episode of “Race the Dish.”
Austinites love dogs: You'll find them in every Tinder, Bumble, and Hinge profile you’ve ever swiped right on, in every park and outdoor space, and paddling happily in all the rivers. One of the few joys of being stuck in traffic on the 35 is the slim chance of seeing a pupper hanging out some pickup truck window, tongue flapping in the wind. So why should you be parted from your beloved pooch when it’s time to take a snack/drink break from all that activity? You shouldn’t. Instead, leash up your hound and visit one of the spots below: each one prioritizes floof enjoyment just as much as the more sedate human variety.
From Los Angeles to San Diego: Every Pit Stop You Need To Make Along The Way
With zero humidity and palm trees in the rearview mirror, cruising down the Pacific coast to San Diego from Los Angeles is summer. Of course, LA traffic can make it less cruiseworthy and more bumper-to-bumper. But with authentic taquerias, whale watching, and iconic surf breaks, there’s a quintessential SoCal pit stop just about every mile of the ride to distract you. Here’s seven summer getaways you can easily hit on the way to San Diego -- just don’t forget the sunscreen and a swimsuit.
In Austin, the terms "Mexican” and “Tex-Mex” are often used interchangeably to describe the same cuisine, and while this isn’t technically correct, it’s also not entirely wrong, especially as the line between these two popular cuisines becomes more and more blurred. Still, it’s worth calling out the local spots that manage to navigate Tex-Mex food beautifully, which is exactly what we’re doing here.
For the sake of this cheat sheet, Tex-Mex refers to the carb-y, cheesy stuff of your hangover dreams (like enchiladas, queso, and breakfast tacos), leaving classics like cochinita pibil and ceviches for another time. In other words, favorites like Licha’s and Grizzelda’s don’t quite fit the bill here -- you’ll find them on our Mexican restaurant guide, though. Now go forth, Austin; margaritas and a hell of a food coma await.
