This 25-year-old Austin institution offers convenient outlets in Northwest Hills and another just off MoPac that's handy for folks in Rollingwood and West Lake as well as the longtime Tarrytown clientele. While their casseroles and desserts are highly regarded, it's well known in Austin that the Kitchen Door's hefty hot or cold sandwiches made on homemade bread are first-rate. The stellar meat loaf sandwich at the Lake Austin location is so famous it's been mentioned in Esquire, and the staff at the original Far West outlet boasts their signature chicken salad sandwich is the very best in town. It's not braggin' if it's true!
