It's mostly the obvious places. Oddly, Fogo de Chao, a churrascaria
that opened a year ago is missing from the list as is my personal
favorite, the Texas Chili Parlor which is right next to the state
capitol at 1409 Lavaca. They have several types of chili, but the
specialty is the Texas Chili with steak and no beans. Real chili. The
medium will warm you well and the hot is...oh, my! (They have a release
form for those who want to try it.) 

Of course, you are only a couple of blocks from 6th Street, home to all
wonderful food and live music, mostly blues, jazz and rock. Little or no
country last year when I was there.

If you have a care, the legendary Salt Lick Bar-B-Que is a few miles out
of town. Lots of good food, but most would not make my cardiologist
happy.
