The evolution of the east side is reflected in joints like Franklin Barbecue, while landmarks like Scholz Garten, the oldest restaurant in the capital, testify to the contributions of the towns college presence and a healthy German influence. Joes Bakery isnt just one of the towns most beloved Tex-Mex spots- its the place where the real wheeling and dealing in Texas politics happens. Food writer Melanie Haupt samples Austins iconic restaurants and the rich heritage that produced them.
