I always see people lined up at P Terrys Burger Stand, a walk-up and drive thru burger place, (no inside seating) but have never been there. There are several locations although I am talking about the one at Barton Springs and S Lamar.

I hesitate to comment about Mexican food lest I step on toes because of style, but Polvo's on S. 1st makes really good food.

Burger Tex is good, the bulkogi is different. I used to get their fired mushrooms, but they started tasting like their freezer, so I quit.

Hill Top on Lamar is good, but you have it nailed with the Dan's. Go to Dan's.

The best time to be coerced into going to Kerbey: Post E-bus trip from Stubb's after getting pulverized to some good music.

Probably the only time I'd recommend going unless you're like walking distance.

My wife works right by Kerby Lane and I have met her there for lunch. I had a mediocre sandwich and the service was super slow. She seems to like it though as well as everyone else in her office.

Some places that have been mentioned.....

Breakfast: The Omlettery. Just awesome. REally good food at a really good price. CASH ONLY. Don't bring the plastic. They aint taking it.

Lunch: Little Deli. The pizza is amazing. I get two slices and leave with an endorphin rush. Cheese and Cheese n Pepperoni is standard... but they always have a slice of the day too. Sandwiches are really good... Though I think the bread could be better. Meats n cheeses make up for it.

Anytime: El Rico. Half a flamed chicken, rice, beans and totillas for 8 bucks. And it's darn tasty.

Just for food? A good dinner spot, albeit a little pricey is Fabi and Rosi. But for a beer, either the Gingerman or the Drafthouse are both awesome.

The Little Deli has pizza now? I stopped going about the time Lucretia sold the place ( I moved). My Aunt did their ad work when they were first getting off the ground. By far one of my favorite places. Potato salad was always amazing, and I like liverwurst, so more power to places that carry it.
