"...Good Eats Cafe..."
"...Within a matter of months following its 1982 debut, the relatively small restaurant -- 80-85 seats then, 120 seats now -- was posting sales figures impressive enough to interest other restaurant operators in the neighborhood. Segle Fry, operator of Another Raw Deal on West Sixth, made a deal with restaurant developers Tommy Walker and Jim Person to build Good Eats Cafe just a few blocks east of Chuy's..."
"...These folks claim to make the "world's best damn burrito," which they describe as "a little Tex, a little Mex and a heaping of freshness stuffed into tortillas, custom prepared to suit your exact tastes." All nonmeat ingredients, including the rice and beans, are vegetarian- and vegan-friendly. Be sure to try the Pot Brownie, baked in a "pot" and topped with fudge and chocolate-chip morsels.

"...For many years, the UT campus has been the stronghold of bad fast food and even worse dorm cafeterias, which catered to the less than demanding tastes of the average student. If food was cheap and fast, it didn't matter how it tasted or if it expressed the least bit of creativity..."

They've remained true to the original vision and continue to offer quality shopping, food to go, a well-informed wine department, a comfortable cafe that often doubles as a music venue, a nationally known cooking school, and the most popular playscape in town..."

"...From Another Raw Deal, Segle moved on to open the original Good Eats Cafe (formerly 1530 Barton Springs Rd) with a group of investors in 1983, joining Chuy's on what would soon become Austin's first restaurant row. Good Eats wasn't a music venue, as such, but because of Segle's huge network of friends in the Texas music scene, it became a great place to meet or catch a glimpse of local and traveling musicians: an unassuming Willie Nelson having a quiet cup of coffee; Steve Fromholz holding forth at a corner table; Derek O'Brien courting one of the managers; Kim Wilson flirting with a hostess with blues greats in tow; folk duo Bill and Bonnie Hearn on the way to or from the Kerrville Folk Festival; or Miss Lou Ann Barton drinking her lunch of an afternoon..."

After a dip and a drink, we always look forward to dinner at the historic Gage's restaurant, Cafe Cenizo..."
