I wasn’t a huge fan of the rib!! It was 25% meat, 25% fat and 50% bone - overpriced too. Brisket ALL THE WAY

It will very much depend on when you come down. Game day weekends, ACL, and the ACL/OU game weekend will all impact what you can get to. I’d strongly recommend picking a non-game, non-ACL weekend. Then you have your choice without the crowds, mark-ups, and delays.

Salt Lick, the original, not the Round Rock version, is really beautiful. Torchy’s is always a favorite. Your can pre-order a family amount of Franklin’s BBQ and skip the line. Manuel’s has amazing mole.


Oh I do not think planning accordingly in the case of getting sweaty when out and about is over the top! I was aware of the temps and was pushing for a later September visit but it didn’t work out. Thanks for all the tips!!


Hesita for a really nice dinner. Would add Cosmic is almost more beer than coffee at this point. Great for a chill afternoon couple beers.

Adding blue dahlia for brunch

Coconut club for house and dance music

Would add Lick for amazing ice cream.

Oh and Red Ash is amazing Italian - you have to make reservations long before tho!

If you are up north like near Georgetown, get you a tea from HTeaO. So, so good. A very West Texas concept making it east.

First trimester. I can only eat only meal a day and some light snacks. And all I feel like eating is carbs and fizzy drinks; french fries, chips, fried chicken, bread, nuts and some fruits. I know this is really unhealthy but how do I bring myself to have proteins and greens.
PS: I do get nausea and constipation but I never vomit. Just don’t feel like eating anything.

Hi everyone, How is the work culture at KPMG Global Services in India?
A friend of mine got an offer for a consultant role in Advisory, Product Operations and Procurement team and has read some horrible reviews on Quora. He is currently working with Accenture.

Also, for the compensation, the offer letter only has Basic Salary and Flexi Compensation, there in no variable component mentioned, is that always the case?


What do you work for?
