I notice that, thanks to the podcast, I now am able to plan my meals when I visit Austin. I thought, how about WE the community return the favour to each other and give each other links to the best restaurants of the towns we've lived in.
Want to do yourself a favor while visiting the Biggest Little City? Visit the Little Nugget Diner and get yourself an AwfulAwful. A half pound burger served with a pound of fries coming in at under 8 bucks, it's the trademark burger of Reno. Also while there, you can get yourself a 32oz ASSKICKER Margarita to wash it down with. Or if you're in the mood for Breakfast any time day or night, get their breakfast special, 2 large pancakes and an eg for 2 bucks.
For those of us who enjoy a good brew every now and then...(read: DAILY)...the Meadowood Mall offers an experience that trumps the Food Court. Within the Mall is a restaurant called 775 Gastropub carrying a HUGE selection of beers from imports, to microbrews, to higher end domestics. The GREAT think about this place is, you can enter their Beer Club and you have 2 years to complete levels and earn "Achievements" if you will, the highest level being the title of "BEER JEDI" after drinking 180 different beers in the two year period giving you your name on their Wall of Fame, a case of beer of your choice, and $2 LIFETIME Discount on all beers. I only put the highest level because I have faith that Geoff, Gus, Bernie, and Griffon can EASILY take care of that in one trip.
