Just like all other Southern cities...

Images: Salt Lick (top right). Perla's (bottom right).

Who: Anthony Bourdain reviewed Perla's and Man vs. Food went to Salt Lick. These places are legit.

What: You will find the best BBQ at Salt Lick; seriously, the best, and at Perla's you will find fresh seafood,which is hard to come by in A-town. 

Where: Perla's is located on South Congress and Salt Lick is right outside of Austin. 

When: You are hungry and in/around Austin.

Why: Location and quality. Perla's is located on South Congress, the heart of the trendy hipster scene, and offers a convenient outside eating area under huge trees. It's so nice to discover a place that serves fresh seafood, when every other place is serving mexican or BBQ. And as for Salt Lick, well, it's located on a Ranch/Vineyard, in the middle of nowhere; just you, BBQ, and the hills of Texas. Can you believe there are vineyards in central Texas?! Who knew! 

Just like all other Southern cities, Austin offers good eatin'!
