1. The Wiseguy Kitchen 1120 W 5th St, Austin, TX 78703

An unassuming red trailer fronting Juanita Tacos, Wiseguy's run by a talkative chef who's returned from retirement to dish authentic gambi-nosh and spin yarns about his old New Yawk days cooking for the bosses, like the time he ejected John Gotti from his kitchen, causing the Teflon Don to tell him his head would have been shoved in a deep fryer if it weren't for the peerless quality of his linguini and clams -- a very theatrical way to make someone Chef Boyardead.
