    Look for the headshot of El Vez. They have a photo booth but it's almost always broken. Put the little round sticker from your silverware on the ceiling in the back room. Also: try the sopapillas.

    With hubcaps, colored lights, and a velvet Elvis, this is Austin-style Tex-Mex at its tacky, funky best. It's almost always busy, but the creamy queso and chips is worth the wait.

    There is no shortage of great restaurants in Austin, but Chuy's definitely has to be on this list for sure. Ask for creamy jalapeno dip to go with the chips when they bring them out." – Darryl Kotyk

    Don't miss out on the creamy jalapeno. Also, this location can get packed around primetime, but they're open late! Swing by around 9 or 10 on a Saturday night for a very short wait.

    You have to be there for the Green Chile Festival, but it's really spicy! It's too hot for some people, so before you order a big plate, ask the staff if there is a way to try a little of it first.
