/m30675 It must have been a joke. First kangaroo is delicious. Second it would be too expensive to import it. I have found very few really good Mexican restaurants. The best in a while was in Seal Beach, CA. My wife's aunt and uncle took us there when we went for a visit. Hole in the wall family owned. But being married to a woman of Mexican descent, I admit I am spoiled.

RIKSNY, sometime humor me and go to https://www.lovemeow.com and check out their cat stories. They highlight special need kitties and those that love and help them. One cat on there has two noses. Most of the stories are about rescuing (sp?) stray kittens near death and then showing video about how well they've survived.

Danno, You have a JIB over that vast ocean and No. Colo. does not have one anywhere around here within an hour drive. Legend has it the one JIB closed here after the kangaroo meat scare. We still don't truly know what is in the taco slime/slop.

Best bang for the buck is Taco Cabana. Quick, tasty, and cheap Tex-Mex. Realistic choices here are Taco Bell or JIB tacos. I don't think Banquet makes Mexican TV dinners any more. Korean "BBQ" does not sound good at all after having all that wonderful Texas BBQ.

The first time I ever had Mexican food was in Breckenridge Colorado, 1967. Tostadas, sopaipillas, don't remember what else, or the name of the place.

82%, husband and work pals in (or somewhat around) Austin had a few favorite places to go to eat there. Their favorite was a family-style BBQ place, very well-known- but of course I can't remember the name. Besides the BBQ being memorable, he had to have their blueberry cobbler and almost got sick from too much food. He forgot to save room for dessert!

One place my husband took me to was a very upscale Mexican breakfast buffet that was maybe Tex-Mex or something. I found it to be a waste of money, but it was a nice effort on his part because I check out at least one Mexican food joint any time I can in a new city. So far, the best Mexican food I have found (for my tastes) in Colorado was in Cortez . . . . waaaay out of the way for us to ever go that way again. I think it was called Tequilas.

Austin is our state capitol. Conservatives refer to it as The People's Democratic Republic of Austin. There is a TV show on NBC called The Texas Bucket List. The narrator takes you to some very interesting places to see and eat at. Most of the time just watching it is enough for me. A lot of small towns with just one place to see. Definitely not worth the drive from where you are. Nice show though. Maybe y7ou can catch some of them on youtube.

I haven't heard of the Longhorn Caverns. Nice tip. (But both of us can be/feel claustrophobic.)

Danno, yes it was Schlitterbahn, I was just too lazy to look up the spelling. The one time I was there, it was chilly and actually closed at the time. That "WTF" is funny the way you phrased Radio Shack being next to the Alamo.

I agree with you (at least about downtown Austin). We don't like country music and we had an AWFUL meal at a very dark bar that Guy Fieri recommended there. BBQ was good and so was one taco place we tried. That was the trip I went into Cabela's for the first time. You sound very familiar with that area.

We had a friend move to Austin for work and he and his wife lived in a gorgeous Class A motorhome in a nice park. But they could NOT take the heat and humidity, so they transferred to Portland and couldn't take that place either. He is exactly my age and retired on disability. He is ANOTHER friend that has tried to persuade my husband to invest in mountain property. This wanderlust friend just built a home in Buena Vista (Colorado) and my guess he'll be out of that place within two years.

Calico. I first saw the Alamo in 1976. Radio Shack was right next door. WTF! The Tower of the Americas is pretty neat because you get a chance to have a view that shows you where you are in relation to everything else around you because it is so flat there. Mamas Cafe for beer batter 'rooms, bean burgers, chocolate-chocolate cake, as well as fritas, ice tea, or coffee.

Calico. Sounds like you were at the Schlitterbahn in New Braunfels. If you stay in that area, I recommend going to the Longhorn Caverns. It's not Carlsbad quality, but it used to be a speakeasy/ dance hall during prohibition and is a blessed respite from the oppressive Texas heat. You might want to check out the LBJ Ranch or the Vanishing River Cruise. Call those places first to find out their schedules and if they're open. Stay out of Austin. Just a pretentious shithole.

Thanks all. I have never taken time to travel a lot with seemingly needed family events and functions sucking up vacations while working. Out in CA I didn't have the desire or money to travel. I was living in a vacation destination and was happy to stay home except for quick trips to Vegas and one fab trip to Yosemite. Of the few sights I have seen in my life, Yosemite is the number two most beautiful place (behind Bora Bora).

Husband may not be in a hurry to go near Austin because he went there frequently for work. A relative of his keeps pestering us to go with them down into Mexico to a condo they own or rent annually. They live near Phoenix, but I do not want to go to Mexico. Maybe 6-7 years ago I was willing to visit Guadalajara for his work and even move down there - but that never happened because husband's parents health went downhill and he retired early.
