Austin is just as Texan as any of the other big cities in the state if not more.

Do you honestly think Dallas or even Houston (with its diversity) are very Texan? If so, you haven't been to either of them. So no, Austin doesn't have the corner market on being different from Texas. Also, many of Dallas & Houston's suburbs are filled with Californians. Some of those suburbs are modeled after Irvine.

And a city of people that waits over 3 hours in line for BBQ is the epitome of Texan... and which city would that be?

I dont think Houston feels very Texan anymore.I have been to both Dallas and Houston.However,Houston loves oil and gas which is very Texan.I dont think people in Austin think much of the fossil fuel industry.San Antone is the most Texan city in my opinion but thats only my opinion.I respect your opinion also.

Unfortunately, they don't have many alternatives.
