It was recently reported that Austinites spend nearly twice the national average on dining out. While that's largely a consequence of a mass-addiction to breakfast tacos, it's also a testament to a culture of culinary entrepreneurism, adventurous eating, and disdain for any chain not circling the hub of a bicycle. Luckily, Thrillist editor Dan Gentile hopped off his own bike to tell you exactly where to enjoy all of the best food.
Favorite Restaurant: This is a tough call, but I've gotta give it up to La Condesa. As much as I love trailer tacos, Condesa just elevates Mexican food to an entirely new level. You won't find a better deal than their atun tostadas during happy hour, and the tobacco-infused El Cubico margarita is one of the most creative drinks in town.
Best Late-Night Eats: Lucky J's wins my nod as best late-night jam for their Ms. M Taco. At 2a, nothing's better than a waffle wrapped around fried chicken, bacon, and Swiss.
