The Austin, Texas landmark finally made its way a little closer to the border. Chuy's 281 boasts decor that could most politely be called kitschy: painted wooden fish hanging from the ceiling, an enormous jalapeno pinata and framed black-and-white photos of other Mexican restaurants in the city, to name a few of the oddities. The food is delicious and, thankfully, not mainstream. Enjoy chicken enchiladas made with blue corn tortillas, "big as yo' face" burritos and the Elvis Presley Memorial Combo (a platter of oversized servings of enchiladas, tacos and queso).
You'll never realize when you've reached inside as the decor incorporates the outdoors look with paintings of skies and nature. The interiors at Alamo Café also extend to the courtyard, complete with a little pond and greenery. Seat yourself on one of the wrought iron chairs and take your pick from the Tex-Mex menu on offer. Sample the various tortillas, chips and fajitas. Don't forget to taste the apple-cinnamon empanadas.

Earl Abel's offers casual family dining at reasonable prices and is a favorite among the locals. For that down-home cooking—the kind your mother used to make—you must try the fried chicken, pot roast or fried catfish dinners. For dessert, try a slice of the triple-layer German chocolate or coconut cake. If it's pie you want, the coconut cream pie is quite tempting.
A friendly atmosphere with a unique design. Twisted metal and a lounge like feel make this place a favorite of the Alamo Heights crowd. The Rebar bar is almost always packed and has a great outdoor patio where one can sit back with a cold beer and enjoy the crowd.Whether you are inside or out you will not be disappointed.
A simple and cozy atmosphere engulfs you as you enter the dimly-lit Karma Bar. The decor of the house is set in Asian style with paintings of Buddha and wooden furniture set across the room. A perfect place to have a decent conversation with jazz and soul music playing in the background. However, the variety of exotic drinks offered in the bar menu makes this place a hangout place with a difference. Call for more information.
