Nadia Chaudhury is the editor of Eater Austin covering food and pop culture, as well as a photographer, writer, and frequent panel moderator and podcast guest.

— Daniel Vaughn, Texas Monthly barbecue editor, revisited the ever-popular Salt Lick, which he calls "the most underrated and overrated barbecue joint in Texas." He recommends the ribs, chicken, and the peach cobbler.

— Alamo Drafthouse opened up a discussion on installing gender-neutral bathrooms in the forthcoming Mueller theater.

— The Labay family, owners of Nau's Enfield Drug, are trying to raze and sell an empty house on West Lynn Street to raise money for the business and owner Lambert's medical bills after his heart attack this year, but they're facing pushback from the Old West Austin Neighborhood Association, who wants to preserve the home.

— Kerlin BBQ landed on another barbecue list, this time from television show The List.

— Papalote Taco House's Research Boulevard location now has a patio, perfect for all of those tacos.

— Zagat shared some known and lesser-known Austin restaurant secrets, including Qui's secret Seven Rabbits cocktail list.

— If you often order lobster rolls, Garbo’s now has a frequent lobster card, where the purchase of ten rolls will land you a free one.

— Torchy's Tacos is a sponsor of next week's X Games, the last one for Austin.
