The Tex-Mex cousin of Jaleo, Austin Grill fills the gap between upscale dining and fast-food munching. It’s popular with a variety of diners—families who don’t want to deal with high-maintenance restaurants and singles who are looking for chow that doesn’t interrupt meeting potential suitors. It also offers a gluten-free menu. There are plenty of tequilas to sample and everything comes with chips and salsa.
