UT is north of downtown so, no, not near the SW part.

Where's the Chuy's being built in SW Austin? I always enjoy Elvis's birthday at Chuy's.

It is going in on the SW corner of Wm Cannon and MoPac (same property as CostCo). I think it should open soon, judging by the 'finishing' touches they are doing to the building.

I hate these sorts of divisive threads... kinda seems "un-Austin" to me... who cares about the competition. Besides, the OP is from Seattle. I agree with mimimom - live where you work, make it as "Austin" as you want.

I totally agree with Jenbar! What is this crap?? I can find nice places on every side of Austin...literally. Grew up out Northwest when it was NOTHING BUT COUNTRY, now it's crazy and still like it because it's home to me. I also lived central and south when I was younger and enjoyed my time there as well. Great people, great fun on both sides of town as long as you keep your mind open to change, which is tough for all of us at times.

Moderator cut: orphanedSure different areas of town have their own looks and feels, but they are ALL Austin no matter what.

I live SW and have worked NW for 14 years, EXCEPT for a year and a half that I worked South. I liked working south because traffic is lighter, it's closer to downtown activities, there are great Mexican restaurants everywhere you look and it just seemed a little more laid back and not as frenzied as the NW side of town. However, NW has a lot more in the way of shopping and variety of restaurants. I'm actually considering a move from SW to NW only to be closer to work. As far as neighborhoods go, I don't expect to see much of a difference. The main difference would be the school districts, so if you have kids you have to do that homework.
