BBQ Restaurant
$$
“Texas Monthly denotes Franklins as "Serving the best BBQ in the Universe." Franklin's is only open Tues-Sun from 11am til the sell out. Which is usually pretty quickly. I suggest arriving a couple hours before opening. There will also be others waiting for it to open. Bring a chair, bring a beer, chat with some new friends and then experience the best BBQ known to man.”

“Located in a renovated historic home in the East Cesar Chavez neighborhood, Cenote specializes in high quality espresso and local fair trade coffees, but that isn't all this coffeehouse has to offer. The menu includes delicious pastries, breakfast and lunch sandwiches, salads and plenty of gluten-free options, all made with local organic ingredients. With great coffee, fresh food, and a comfortable atmosphere, Cenote is definitely worth checking out.”
