The food is good but I can not classify it BBQ even though they do. It is more of a Memphis Style over real Texas, bit most won’t come here for food.

Do folks really go to this place? I went back in the late 80’s when there was a Pancho’s on Burnet. The place still sucks, with all the good Mexican choices in town, why go here? All you can eat…well if you like bad food and want lots of it.
“Sandwitches, but not a cafe.”
So I classify a Cafe as a place that serves some American home cooking.This ain’t it. It is more of a sandwich shop. For sandwich’s the prices are a little high, but if your close to the location it will do.Mind you this is no real deli, nor a cafe….I mean some in-between concoction of food that is almost non-classifiable. But they do have a few good sandwiches and hell, at least the WiFi is free…but for breakfast, go next door to the Kolache Factory.
Does not like it
Honestly they spend so much time making sure you do not need any more drinks, food, whatever, it is hard to keep a train of thought. Even after I told them, I am just going to sit here and work.

Ok, so not often do I try to make a splash with a title, but seriously this place sucks.
Let’s say you cross a Kettle with a IHOP, put it in the ghetto, invite anyone for a 5 o’clock free crack give away and you got Carrows.
Now, I have been to Carrows in other towns and it is your standard IHOP style breakfast joint…but here in Austin, stay away…unless your looking to buy crack with your waffles.
Wow, it is hard to figure out where to put Burger House…for sure in the top 3.
Great little place, awesome burgers. I went for the double meat, double cheese.
These are your griddle style like your mom would make on the stove…and they run down your arm juicy.
I would pass on the fires, they were shoestring but over done.
Just WOW on the burger!
This place is great! It has been around for what seems ever now, but they really have good food. I call it Clean Mexican, since it is void of the heavy grease that many Tex-Mex places drown their food in. I always go with the Enchiladas, but you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu!
“Better than Schlotzsky’s”
This place was called Alvin Ord’s years ago. Then after Schlotzsky’s sued the corporation for “coping the recipe’s” they broke them apart and the local owners changed the name.This place has excellent sandwiches just like Schlotzsky’s but much fresher and well, to die for.Small strip center place, that is not too warm, but the sandwiches make up for it!
“Quite possibly some of the worst service in town”
Doesn’t like it
Only saving grace for this shop is that you can still smoke inside the bar.Even though the staff is friendly the service sucks. EVERY TIME. The bar is small, but the bartenders seem to be consumed with … well something besides slingin’ liquor. They have NTN Trivia, a bunch of TV’s and Karaoke on one night.
