I always had a great time at Shakey's Pizza, and for good fast food fish, there was First Mate
Their Matey Burger was huge,...

Anyone remember Farrals (sp?) Fine Foods on Roosevelt a little north of Riverside Golf Course? Not sure when they closed but we used to eat there once a week when I was growing up in the 60"s. I remember they had pretty good steaks and sea food.

Valerio's on Broadway across from USAA, now the AT&T corporate offices. -Died in the 80s.

Delta Catfish on San Pedro. -Died in the 70s

Catfish Parlour off Blanco (You can still find one in Southeast Austin) -area was underdeveloped and they couldn't weather it until SA moved north. Died in the 80s.

Meatballs at Brookhollow and elsewhere -died in the 80s. Darn good lasagne at a darn good price. Must have been mismanaged, as they were usually packed.

Vienna Meine Struße -Died in the early 90s? Not sure of the spelling either. Excellent, excellent German food; even if you're just going for the cliched Wiener Schnitzel. Potato dumplings were to die for. A husband and wife operated it off of Ira Lee before you hit Austin Hwy.

There was a fish and chips place off Broadway around where Good Time Charlies is in the early 70s. Absolutely the best I've ever had, even served them in newpaper.

The Bean Pot on Austin Hwy -Died early to middle 80s.

First Mate off Pecan Valley Drive -'cause of Cap'n Gus

Zuider Zee on San Pedro - (Zuilder Zee?) Died late 70s. Seafood.

Christi's on Broadway - Died in the 80s, a very slow death.

Night Hawk - Saw Chris Marrou there once. Dead by the 80s.

Villa Italia off San Pedro - Italian, died in the 80s. Just 'cause Joe Anthony would feed me until I was ready to puke.

....and a host of other places which have came and went, much like my memory.

17776 Blanco Rd., between the Sonic and car wash. There was an Italian restaurant there for a number of years afterwards, and it's been a couple different Mexican restaurant incarnations since. Yelp shows that it is currently La Tequilera Del Patron.

Like Delta Catfish, they had all-you-can-eat specials. Thursdays were their spicy catfish, so that was my day to visit. Great beans, the hush puppies were not round, but elongated like fingers, and the catfish had a hard, crisp breading that left the inside moist. The slaw was great too. Last time I ate at their Ben White location in Austin, it hadn't changed.

They were just too early. It was the last restaurant you came to beyond the Longhorn Cafe. After it closed, it sat empty for years until Baccone's Italian Restaurant, which had been further south on Blanco, moved there.

Thanks, ok now I remember yes back in the day where there was nothing at all out there. I live down the street and it sure has changed the last 15 years.

Before it was the ill-fated new, now defuct home of Kasbeer's, before it was Cafe San Antone, the haunted church restaurant located in the basement of the theater at 1150 S. Alamo had excellent food.

I don't even know if the restaurant had a name, but it was a long established underground success. Food was served buffet-style and the deserts and pastries were second to none. Once the owner (Marcie) sold out, and the pastry Chef (Dennis) left, things were never the same again.

Casbeers on Blanco was a favorite lunch haunt. They had some of the best chile and enchiladas in town. WE'd also play pool at lunch along with a brewski or two. Great memories from the old Casbeers.

Absolutely!
My dad used to take us there back in the 70's for their enchiladas and a big red.....best enchiladas ever. Tons of onions and served with bread and crackers.
The old geezers playing pool and dominoes in the back added to the ambiance of the place....hole in the wall with great food. All gone now.....sigh.

Loved the Tee Pee, best and biggest steak in town and those homemade flaky biscuits for dipping were delish!
