The firehose of information surrounding SXSW is daunting. Staggering. Majestic in it’s voluminosity. And eventually, just overwhelming. Sleep here, drink there and there and there. Shop on that street. Or this popup store. And of course, eat… everywhere.
Next to the party lists, the question of where to eat is by far the largest body of information to wrangle. The lists I’ve seen (so far) collectively recommend over 150 individual restaurants. And this is important, because at some point you get tired of the tiny warmish portions of free food at all the parties and hanker for a real meal.
To help out the non-locals a bit, here are all the Eats Lists which have crossed my desk, grouped into one handy post. Together, these
nine 12 13 comprehensive lists cover everything from new darlings to old favorites. Some focus on food trucks, others are strictly geographical (downtown or East, mainly) and there is even one just for bakeries. Enjoy!
