Since ordering at a restaurant isn't always as easy as falling back on trusted prefixes ("bacon-") and suffixes ("-ator"), bone up at Tasted Menu: a crowd-sourced site offering numerical ratings of specific dishes, just arriving in Austin from our rhyming northeastern sister city (hint: not Lostin).
At launch their database contains 60000 ATX dishes, which you can search via a leisurely scroll through pages of photo-driven gluttony, or by completing targeted queries like "Where can I find the best __?", filling in the blank with a dish, cuisine, or ingredient (a real boon to anyone who's just mad about saffron). Each entry gets an average score, plus a scrollable gallery of individual diners' ratings and photos, which are posted alongside their avatar, so be expecting a lot of recipes involving Camerones.
As a reviewer you can add a few short words, if you're that kind of guy, and you know how to spell "scrumptious". Saving you from the hell of plugging one device into another device, they've also developed an app that'll let you take & upload pics using your iPhone -- just be careful what you upload, or everyone will find out that when your bone's up, it's just a 4.
