Fixe

Southern food’s humble building blocks – buttermilk, black-eyed peas, grits, and salt pork – are refreshed through a combination of molecular gastronomy and just plain ingenuity.

500 W. Fifth, 512/888-9133

Gus's World Famous Fried Chicken

As the first Texas outlet of a famous Memphis fried-chicken chain, this newcomer comes in strong. The simple menu includes chicken by the plate or individual piece. Plates come with a choice of two or three pieces: white, dark, or the "half chicken" option – one piece of each. Plates come with baked beans and slaw, but substitutions are allowed for 50 cents extra. Start with a couple of cans of Austin Beer Works brew and a plate of the best fried green tomatoes ever.

Hut's Hamburgers

This legendary spot rests not on its laurels but atop beef-eaters' picks for Best Burger. It's justifiably famous for their hamburger happy hour two-for-one specials.
