We ask the hotel staff for a nearby place to go and have a steak dinner. This was the restaurant that was recommended. It was a little difficult to find but once we arrived, we enjoyed a nice, quiet dinner. There really isn't much of a steak selection but the NY Strip was very good. The layout of the restaurant is very similar to a LongHorn restaurant. I'm not sure if I would visit this restaurant again but the food was pretty good and after a long flight it was a great place to just relax.

TXLC (the I35 north location) was the first restaurant I visited during my first visit to Austin. I wanted to order a sirloin steak, but the waiter recommended the smoked sirloin, instead. I "obliged", and have never ordered anything else in that restaurant ever since.

I have since left Austin, after having lived there for two years, and visited only a handful of times. Last time was this week, and of course, I went to TXLC again. The place still looks promising from the outside, but going in, it does not live up to my memories.

The place looked a bit faded, or maybe it was the the late hour - i don't exactly know. The expected "would Pepsi be OK?" from the waiter was not a surprise, but still a bit of a shame. The sourdough bread, which I never really loved, tasted exactly the same as it did 16 years ago, and kind-of brought back memories. But there was no real nostalgia at that stage.

And then out comes the smoked sirloin, and everything is alright again. This still is the best dish I have tasted, made of sirloin. It's quite simple, really - 4 slices of about 1 cm thickness of peppered, smoked sirloin, with a side of fries (simple me). The gentle smoked taste, the tenderness and the juiciness is just right, and a perfect excuse to continue visiting the TXLC whenever next I visit Austin.

Their freshly baked (not microwaved) bread is delicious! Their smoked sirloin, besides being economical, is very tasty.

It never fails with this place; they always serve the best steaks in town and always a pleasant experience. This particular location needs a new makeover to uplift it and make it hip again. Their New York strip is the best and their string onion appetizer is delicious!
