Forget how far I'd go for a Klondike bar, I'd go all the way to Austin for a Dirty Sanchez (4 down). (Original Post) MiddleFingerMom Jun 2013 OP

but it can be difficult to find a seat and we usually end up on the patio which isn't the best place to be most of the time.

My group of friends like to hang out at the Omeletry a few blocks away although it can also be difficult to get a seat on the weekends. It's got the Austin dive vibe and they also serve gingerbread pancakes (aka Prozac on a Plate)! The only question marks about eating there are what color hair will the server have and how many visible body piercings will you see.

Jamaica jerk chicken, grilled jalapenos, mango, sour cream and cilantro. Served with DIABLO Sauce on a flour tortilla.

There's two Torchy's within about 10 minutes of my house.
