Jbro's House - having to wait for Jbro to leave so I can get satisfied is the worst part.

Mueller's has one of the best burgers in town.
Connolly's for a drink.
Had Cabo for din din tonight.
Thirsty Beaver defines a good ole dive bar.
Counter has good burgers too, but not exactly a dive.

Casino El Camino has the best burgers in town. Great jukebox too.

C-Hunt's (laugh it up) is one of the best places to enjoy a beer (great selection and cheap) outside. Bar staff is easy on the eyes and top notch.

The Horseshoe is old school, largely hipster free South Austin with a great country and old R n B dominated jukebox. Personal flasks welcome.

Trudy's and its limit two per customer Mexican martini's and stuffed avocado is an Austin institution.

Kirby Lane is the place for an end of festivities breakfast.

For Food, the Filling Station or West End Cafe.

Yes, definitely. I recommend 2 eggs over medium, country ham and hash browns with toast. It's what the doctor ordered!

It's hard to find a place that truly [B]knows[/B] how to cook country ham, and they do at Greg's... It's not tanned leather, and it's not still oinking. It's just right.

If Hickory Tavern , McCormick & Schmick's, and the Capital Grille are what you consider "dives" then you are definitely on a different social status level than I am. :eek:

that's exactly what I was thinking..since when is a 4 star restaurant considered a dive

and I agree about Mac's ...way overrated...McKoy's is way better

My regular places

Greg's for breakfast or dinner
Chen Fu (dimbee, I can't believe you didn't list that one)
El Valle - my daughter's favorite

There's other places I like, but you can find us at these places VERY often.

Toast in Huntersville is awesome for brunch, not sure it qualifies as a dive though
