VISITING AUSTIN? HERE ARE THE RESTAURANTS YOU MUST EAT AT.

In June 2019, I arrived in Austin and was overwhelmed with how many restaurants and eateries there were! It was a goal of mine to try as many as I could. After living in Austin for almost two years now, I felt it was finally time to put together all of my favorite restaurants in one post! If you try a place on this list, let me know your thoughts!
