Overview

Fearless Critic restaurant guides offer brutally honest reviews from undercover chefs and food nerds dining incognito and are totally supported by user funding rather than paid advertisements. The Fearless Critic is utterly unique in its candor, its rigor, its irreverent lack of deference to the sacred cows, and its devotion to finding a city's best food, wherever it may lie. Each review is a full-page long and includes a food rating out of 10, a feel rating out of 10, and practical information about the restaurant. The handy reference section lists all restaurants by cuisine, neighborhood, and special features and offers a specific guide for vegetarians. More than just entertaining reads, these are essential references for anyone who eats out. Covering 250 places to eat across Austin, the suburbs, and Texas Hill Country, from power lunch spots to quirky wine bars, Round Rock Sushi to Lockhart BBQ, this guide provides dozens of little-known bargain finds, from taco trucks to Korean groceries, ribs to tibs.

Editorial Reviews

"The culinary potential here was almost always nearly limitless. We've had ravioli and gnocchi that were dazzling, and what must have been the city's most ethereal soufflé. But in the past, many dishes were routinely overwrought with banal truffling, lobster-saucing, and oversalted." Brutally honest, yet fair, Fearless Critic restaurant guides have earned enviably large audiences in city after city. Each paperback in this quartet of Lone Star State guides displays all the signature Fearless Critic features: Full page reviews; 1-to-10 food and feeling ratings; and the practical information you need.
