Just started to work in this area and looking for some good places to grab some lunch in close proximity. I enjoy most kinds of cuisine with the exception of Indian food.

Stay even closer...Jim's is an old-school diner-type place with lunch specials under eight bucks including iced tea. Some relatively healthy options along with the requisite 'chicken-fried' offerings. NW corner of the intersection...outparcel in front of HEB.

Chisholm Trail BBQ is in the shopping center on the southwest corner of the intersection(I think Big Lots is the storefront most visible from the street). Decent BBQ although I've never heard anyone rave about it.

Asia Cafe is often touted as the best Chinese food in Austin. Asia Cafe Asutin 亚洲美食

Cupprimo has delicious cupcakes and very good coffee. Cupprimo

Al Forno has good NY slices and pies. Al Forno Slices & Pies

Of course there are many chain fast casual places (Chipotle, etc.) in and around the strip malsl at Parmer/McNeil, Anderson Mill/183 etc.

A couple of good Mexican options - Camino Real in the same shopping center as Big Lots and Chisolm Trail is cheap, down home good Mexican food. Jardin Corona on Pond Springs has been a NW Austin staple for years.

For BBQ, Chisolm Trail is just OK, nothing too special. Rudy's is right down the road too but our favorite for BBQ is Pokejos at great Hills and 183.

Riata Bar and Grill has good hamburgers and Minh's Cafe in the same strip center has good Chinese and Vietnamese dishes (pho and vermicelli bowls).

Cheddars, even though it's a chain, is pretty good homestyle food.

If you're a fan of Greek, Tino's has 2 locations - one at Anderon Mill and 183 (Galleria Oaks shopping center) and one down by the Arboretum where Pokejo's is.

Besides Asia Cafe, another of our favorite Chinese is Nanking (Galleria Oaks also).

If you're in the mood for soup, salad or sandwich, there are 2 Jason's Deli's located nearby as well - one in the Lake Creek shopping Center and one in the same shopping center as Sprouts on the north side of 183 and Great Hills.

That should keep you busy for awhile.

IF you're in the burger and driving mood, Moonies @ Anderson Mill and 183 is pretty tasty. Same shopping center as Tino's and Which Wich. There's also a Taco Cabana there, but I've yet to figure them out ("should" be better than it is, IMO)

Some of these places require a bit of PITA driving around our lovely interchanges/frontage roads...sort of a 'you can't get there from here' approach. Just the McNeil/Spicewood/183 interchange is a fire drill in itself!

NOW I'm gettin' HUNGRY!!!

If you like Thai food, there is Thai Cuisine on Parmer Rd and Silver Creek. They have a free mini-buffet with soup, apps, and salad, so it's super popular with all the nearby businesses.

There's also Muangthai at 183 just before Lakeline Mall Rd.

Depending on time you might want to check out Vazquez Mexican Restaurant, Its in the shopping center with the Alamo Draft house on Lake Creek and 183.

You are 4 miles from Taco Deli on Duval/Mopac. It can get very busy.

That whole center was hopping today! Tried to go Thai, but ended up at the new Pita House Greek cafe. Not bad gyros with limited salad ingredients. Apps look good for a lunch sampler! Both the Thai Cuisine and Silver Grill had lines waiting.
