It's been awhile (years) since I had them, but Round Rock Donuts at Lone Star Bakery off of 620.




Best local donuts around. Fresh is obviously the best!
Hopefully they didn't lose the magic that they sprinkled into every inch.

Need to commit to waking up early and getting them fresh, the next time I visit my parents.

The 1lb donut is legit.

You are missing the two best pizza places in the OP. Salvation Pizza is my all time favorite and Austin Beer Garden is rad too. I am sure other people here can back me up.

Also Taco Deli was amazing 5 years ago before they made the portions smaller and upped the price. It is a damn shame what that place has become.

I like the Regal on Stonelake for some reason, but no real preference. Whenever I can sneak out of work, which looks less likely as I keep getting added to meetings. Hopefully around 3pm. I'm not really fond of Drafthouse. I can't stand people eating during a movie. But I could be talked into it if I'm drinking.

Still waiting to see if I can get out. And it's such a lovely day!

In another thread, did you mention you've only been to the Drafthouse once?

People eating food can sometimes be an annoyance, but it's pretty rare, from my experience. You should give it another chance!

Honestly, I can't imagine going to any other theatre, except for the arthouse ones. Reserved seating is more than enough reason for me to pick the Drafthouse--the rules are a bonus.

Yeah eating hasn't been a problem whenever I've gone. And people chewing loudly is generally a big pet peeve for me that I would notice. That may be because I've seen mainly action movies there though.

Hogarden and Salvation are both superior to home slice?

Also, has anyone found better fried chicken then Lucy's or 24 yet? Those are the best I've had so far

Yeah, for Man of Steel. It was the one downtown too (during the ROT Rally), maybe that had something to do with it. I'll give it another shot. It was just really distracting to try and watch the film while people to left and right were chomping away and attendants kept walking past to take orders. I'll have to assume it's not always like that, so many people love it.

timeaisis, awesome job with the thread, yo.

need a sandwich category and only incude Noble Sandwich Co on 4805 Burnet.

Formerly known as Noble Pig. It is run by two guys from NY, I believe, and frequented by food shows from all over. They are the Franklin's of the Sandwich shop. Their Noble Pig sandwich is absolutely glorious as are their bacon chocolate truffles.

I take two days a week to get lost in Austin and try new places to eat. Tonight I head to the Odd Duck down south lamar before heading to Fast Eddie's. Stoked.

Yeah, Hoboken was my go-to when I used to spend a lot of time at Side Bar. That and the Hot Dog King trailer! Bulldog is my fav.

I still order Hoboken delivery once or twice a month. Their Greek salad is actually super delicious.

Hey, thanks! Yeah, I've been meaning to try Noble Pig. I'll update the OP soon with all these new recommendations, I promise!

Via 313 is my new favorite though.. need to get to the brick and mortar place now that one exists, but I can't imagine it could get any better than the trailer at Craft Pride.

That's fine; then we are going to need you to hit up each place in person to verify the praise each one gets in this thread.

If you guys are into Noble Pig check out Republic of Sandwich. It's on Hancock right down the road from Noble (maybe 3 minutes?) and it's amazing. They cure their own meats (even their own bacon!) and you get a huge sandwich. Homemade sides and everything. It's amazing.

Haha y'know my wife would probably down for that but my wallet sure as hell wouldn't. I need to start doing your technique of trying somewhere new twice a week. Right now we maybe try a new place once or twice a month.

If I do, I'll bring a clipboard and start taking notes.

Hey, I love being in relationships. I just still think of my last breakup of 3 years, 6 months. ヽ(`Д´)ノ

I'm good. Anyway, excited for tomorrow! By the way, if I'm quiet. That's because I'm a pretty shy person, plus I got that social anxiety of mine. I'll do my best!

I'm so fucking pumped for tomorrow because of these. I just finished up my first year at UT and I'll be grabbing a dozen + a milk for the roadtrip home. Best donuts I've ever had!!

Also, I like the Salvation Pizza mentions here. I'm eating here with my family right now for the first time.
