With spring and summer vacations on the horizon, it’s probably a good idea to make some plans ahead of time to ensure your kids have great vacation – right here in Austin!
Here’s a new list of local suggestions from our neighbors at LeMontreaux apartments of favorite places kids like to eat in Austin. 
Torchy’s Tacos  There’s a taco for every taste and a menu to please the entire family at this favorite stop for tacos for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  And every month, Torch Taco’s owner Michael Rypka creates his “Torchy’s Taco of the Month” for what has to be some of the most unusual blends of beef, chicken, veggies and more.  Ever heard of Chicken and Waffles?  How about putting all of those traditional southern goods on top of a taco! You have to eat to believe it! 
The Frisco  With a history that dates back to the 1950’s, The Frisco is living proof that if one mixes great food with great service that one can survive any ebb and tide of the economy, and any competition.  Sixty years later, The Frisco is a testament to its mission and top ratings year after year.  Just one step into this classic Diner environment and you’ll know you have found a great spot to take your kids out on the town this spring, and year-round.,
Gourdough’s Public House  Be it Grandma’s Dumplin’s, the Country Clucker, Three Little Guidos, or Bacon Me Crazy, there is no doubt that a trip to this foodie’s favorite hot spot in Austin is a ‘must-do’ with your kids, and for kids of all ages.  The food is fabulous, the prices fair, and ambiance worth the trip.  Did we mention they are famous for their doughnuts?  Save room for a home-made delight topped with some vanilla ice cream for dessert!
Polvos  Famous for their salsa bar, award-winning Mexican food, and overall great value, Polvos is one of Austin’s favorites for their authentic faire for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.  Serving their own blend of Cosa Rican coffee, stop in any time of the day for a pick-me-up or to pick up a pound of their exclusive blend.
Napa Flats  This is one of our favorites that fulfills the entire family’s needs for dining out delights.  While the folks enjoy a hearty steak and lovely glass of wine, the kids can have their own good time tossing their pizza dough in preparation for their favorite feast.  
Phil’s Ice House.  Their website says it all:  “Burgers, beer, ice cream and a playscape.  It’s like shooting fish in a barrel for busy parents looking for an easy, relaxing, family meal.”
