We’ll be penning an obituary for El Dorado Meat Market soon enough but this article relates to the expansion of Your Mom’s Burger Bar. The Cesar Chavez based burger house is coming to the eastern fringe of Hyde Park in mid February. Airport Blvd is in revival with brand new ramen house Kome garnering raves from area eaters including the reclusive Matthew Odam, the Statesman restaurant critic who authors a restaurant review for the daily 4-5 times per year. It’s here http://www.austin360.com/food-drink/dining/kome-helps-change-face-of-airport-boulevard-dining-2079504.html
Your Mom’s should be a big success if they just get the overflow from the next door/Tamale House. The Tex Mex legend’s status as one of Austin’s great, cheap meals is being further cemented on a daily basis as the mile long lunch lines attest.
Somebody should write an article about the plenitude of dining along Airport Blvd. There is an amazing mix of burgers, donuts, Korean, Japanese, pizza and a host of other options along this corridor.
With the city about to stick their nose in the infrastructure of the grand road we can expect to see a few of these old time Austin restaurants shuttered in the next couple years a la the e. 7th st debacle that shuttered La Monita.
ps: thanks to our readers who utilized the tipster button to let us know about Your Mom’s new joint. We appreciate it.
