I visited Top Notch Burgers in Crestview, Austin, TX (78757) for the first time after having wanted to go for a while. I love charcoal grilled burgers so I had try this restaurant. I ordered the regular cheeseburger with fries and it was good with the unmistakable charcoal taste I was looking for. Next time, I’ll have to get their “Longhorn Special”! An Austin original and Crestview mainstay for over 40 years – try it yourself!
We are always looking for good places to eat near Round Rock Ranch so my wife and I finally made it over to a local restaurant, Cafe Java, to try it out and I wanted to give them a quick review. In short, we loved it! The vibe was very low key and local at this corner cafe. The staff was fast, friendly and helpful and seemed to know a lot of the customers personally. Our waitress made us feel right at home and helped us navigate the menu as two “newbies.”
So many items on the menu looked delicious, but my wife and I finally settled on getting an omelet and eggs & hash browns respectively. The Philly Omelet my wife ordered was fresh, juicy and full of flavor. I decided on the regular classic, the “Cafe Java” – two eggs, hash browns and bacon with an extra buttermilk pancake on the side. My meal was prepared perfectly and tasted great and both of our meals had very generous portions.
All in all, we were very pleased with our experience and we look forward to bringing the rest of the family back next time and having a chance to sample their lunch and dinner menu with the homemade desserts they have prepared as well! Cafe Java also has free WiFi and looks like a great place to relax and get some work done on a quiet afternoon. Thanks to everyone at Cafe Java for the tremendous experience and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
We met some of our friends at Phil’s Ice House Friday night so I wanted to give a quick review. We have been there a number of times and the food has always been really good. I had one of my favorites, the Violet Crown, a Bleu Cheese Burger topped with bleu cheese, and grilled onions on a toasted jalapeño cheese bun. Any burger also comes with regular fries or their signature sweet potato fries (my son loves both). Phil’s also has some great mini burgers that works great for the kids or those with smaller appetites.
Phil’s Ice House also has a great fenced-in play area. We were able to let the kids roam on the playground and watch from a distance. That kept our kids busy for a long time, which allowed us to spend a lot of time catching up with our friends. There always seems to be plenty of seating, but if you want a premium table under the canopy or near the playground (to better keep an eye on the kiddos), you need to keep your eye out for when someone leaves their table.
We finished the night off with some Amy’s Ice Cream, which shares the building with Phil’s. Amy’s is an Austin institution that always has fresh, creative, made-to order ice-cream/topping combinations. We had a really good time and the threat of “wolves in the bushes by the playgound” was the only thing we could do to pry our kids from the slides! Phil’s Ice House & Amy’s Ice Cream is one of the best places to eat and spend time with friends in the Crestview, Brentwood & Allandale areass and we look forward to going back.
