Manuel’s Downtown
310 Congress Ave.
Austin, TX

We both say go! You get a lot for your money. Expect the tab to run between $30-$40.

Chez Nous
510 Neches Street
Austin, TX

Split decision – Bridget likes the convenient location, but I think there are better options nearby. Expect to pay around $25.

Old Pecan Street Cafe
310 E 6th Street
Austin, TX

We both say go, but only for the pecan pie! Lunch runs about $15.

Pecan pie is the thing to get at the Old Pecan Street Cafe.
