As long as it's under an hours drive I'll survive.

They're following the flocks of people moving from Cali.


This is a thing?

How do you guys feel about a Facebook TLS UT group?

I'm down for it. I'm in a few TLS groups so always open for them :P

Oh, and yes, there's some anti-california sentiment in Austin.

I'm very conflicted about this. I envision Zuck as someone who has has a lot of self control, and if he can't consistently resist In n Out's call, I'm pretty fucked. How does it compare to Culvers?

Yah dude you gotta start reading the Statesman and the Chronicle, there's a story about it like every day.

But yeah, go ahead and start the FB group. I think we're all mostly FB friends anyway (at least, we're all independently friends with Attax :lol: ).

I have no idea what Culvers is. In-n-out is almost as good as whataburger though!

Do it do it do it do it.

Culvers is the home of the Butterburger (pictured below). They're pretty ubiquitous around me, and they're pretty great. Probably the best fast food burger you can get, IM(limited)O.

P. Terry's is alright, I'd rather go to Hut's, Your Mom's, or that little shack on south 1st and barton springs intersection that is yellow and I forgot the name of it.

Food and beer are definitely my weaknesses. Law school also made me fatter. And weaker.

Seriously though, it's tough to just go home and make a sandwich every day when you have to drive by In and Out.

And really the food here is incredible. If you end up in that area you aren't too far from a food truck that sells probably the best sandwich I have ever had, and a vegan food truck that is pretty incredible (and I'm a total carnivore). There is also a vegan donut food truck with really good donuts (but they are like $2.00 I think) and a vegan BBQ truck that is supposed to be good but I haven't tried it yet. Airport Blvd also supposedly has some good restaurants but I haven't ventured out to any of them.

Also good, just not my favorite :P

Speaking of airport, best seafood in Austin is at Quality Seafood.

Likewise. I came here expecting to have an awesome football time. Yet my friends at A&M and Baylor got better shots at a national championship than we ever did during my UG.

Credited, we got one in Dallas as well, it's a great burger. The line can be a killer though..

Yeah I think we're going to pull the trigger. I'd prefer to be in a busier spot but it'll probably be good to be in North Campus for 1LOL. I didn't even think about food carts near it, that definitely adds to the appeal.

Also, is it standard to put these obnoxious application fees to apply to apartments in Austin? I haven't run into this before.

Culvers tastes exactly like it sounds: a delicious, decadent, melt-in-your-mouth butterburger. They also have custard and some specialty items that people rave about (walleye sandwich).

In-N-Out is a very traditional burger, but there are also many ways to customize it. I associate their burgers with fresh and quality ingredients. You can taste it.

Both, however, have one fatal flaw: their fries suck. Five Guys' fries>>>>>both.

Agreed on Five Guys' fries, **IF** you eat them there. If they spend more than a minute in the bag they turn into soggy, floppy sad fries.
