An Eater's Guide to Austin City Limits

ACL is right around the corner and you're probably wondering what it's bringing to the table. Austin is loved for it's live music, but it's local food eateries bring just as much flavor! Here are a few of the vendors this weekend:

P.Terry's - Don't get me started on this joint. After my first visit to Austin, I changed my relationship status on Facebook to “in a relationship with P.Terry”. That’s how good it is. Don’t forget to order Special Sauce to dip those handcut french fries in. Heaven. Their veggie burger is pretty good too. Some people claim it’s the best in Austin. Also, if you’re gluten-free, they will put your burger in a lettuce wrap, which I have to say is pretty freakin good.

Mighty Cone – a trailer that lives in the heart of South Austin 0n Congress (SOCO). These guys wrap everything in a tortilla and put it in a cone. If you’re a veggie, try the fried avocado, it’s amazing. They also offer fried chicken and shrimp. You really can’t go wrong.

Torchy's Tacos – get the Green Chili Pork! If you’re gluten-free, get this bad boy on a corn tortilla. If you’re veggie, they make a mean fried avocado as well.

Daily Juice – As one of my favorite spots in Austin, Daily Juice may deserve a full post one day. This place is dripping with nutrients. They pack their smoothies full of things you’ve never heard of and somehow make them taste delicious. Your body will thank you! They juice fresh veggies and fruits too, so you can stay hydrated and healthy under that blazing Texas sun!

Tiff's Treats – tell me if this isn’t the most genius business model you’ve ever heard of… warm cookies, delivered. Seriously?! Yes please.

Sweet Leaf –
another Austin-born company that uses simple, organic ingredients to brew their famous teas. I recommend the Mint and Honey Green Tea. Their teas can be on the sweet side, so if you prefer less sugar or just can’t handle down-home sweet tea, add some water to lighten it up!

The Salt Lick – Known for its mouth-watering barbeque in Driftwood, this place makes a stealth brisket taco. This taco isn’t featured on their regular menu, but you can find it at the festival and in the Austin airport. You’ve gotta try this thing!

Olivia –I haven’t made it over to this place yet but supposedly they have the best fried chicken in town. The chef’s secret ingredient: soy sauce! This place is usually pretty pricey so enjoy their small portions and small prices this weekend!

Enjoy the food, Enjoy the music!
