We live in Austin, and stopped here for breakfast a couple of years ago and hated to continue our drive.
My Boston-based sister visited this June so we took her to the LBJ National Historic Park, and when she said she wanted a typical Texas meal at noon, I knew exactly where to go. C and C Diner did Not disappoint us!
My wife and sister shared the chicken-fried steak, and both proclaimed it as "Excellent!"
I had the Jalapeño Reuben. Oh, my... I've eaten a lot of Reuben sandwiches in a lot of places, and none can compare to this awesome TX take on the classic. Plenty of not so lean corn beef, just enough sauce, Texas toast, and the ubiquitous jalapeño made this a new all-time favorite.
If that wasn't good enough, I ordered some onion rings and they were also some if not the best I've ever munched. The rings were 1-2" thick, and battered lightly with a tasty, crunchy coating that stuck to the rings and left me thinking about them more than two months later.
