  • Hrmm. I live in the Austin, TX area. I think I'd offer the following:


    Eddie V's - upscale seafood


    Either the Salt Lick in Driftwood or Black's in Lockhart for bbq


    Trudy's (campus location) for TexMex & Mexican Martinis


    Magnolia Cafe - breakfast at 2am


    Oasis - for drinks and appetizers at sunset. I can't recommend the food, but the view is unbeatable.

  • What? A Chicago native failed to add Gino's pizza to the list? My city is known as the chicken capital so you would have to visit at least one of these chicken places: Belgrade Gardens, White House Chicken, Milich's Village Inn. (we have more but these three are the best). I would also recommend Angie's Pizza, David B's, Hodges, and Green Diamond. Wow. I just realized we have way more restaraunts that I could have suggested!

  • I live on the Jersey Shore. There are lots of good resturants close by. But if I was amazing food I go to NYC. The Mesa Grill is my fav.

  • We live out in the boonies---we only have a couple good places to eat and all the fast food you could ask for. We go to The Ram when we want a steak dinner, of Black Angus.
