Sometimes the simple classics are the most effective: Take, for example, The Tavern, stripped down to one basic message, recalling a time when the luxury of air conditioning was a draw in the merciless Austin summers. Whether these signs have been refurbished or updated, their classic elegance remains: Ichiban Sushi and Benold's Jewelers on Burnet; the Texas Village Motor Inn's animated arrows on N. I-35; Flamingo Automotive (3516 Guadalupe); Wheatsville (3101 Guadalupe); Centennial Liquor (2932 Guadalupe, et al.); Pleasureland (613 W. 29th); Kruger's Jewelers (Congress & Eighth); and Austin Motel, St. Elmo Motel, and The Classic Inn (1220, 4419, and 4606 S. Congress, respectively) are about as classic as they come. Rescued & Restored Walk into either Threadgill's location to see where old neon goes to die - or live, as the case may be. One example: the old Twin Oaks sign from the aesthetically doomed shopping center of the same name at Oltorf & South Congress. What they were thinking when they tore down one of Austin's prettiest neon centerpieces and erected that horrible green and white plastic tribute to bad taste is beyond comprehension. The noble Oaks sign is safe at home at Threadgill's World Headquarters (301 W. Riverside), among a confounding variety of other signs, including the one from the original Nighthawk. Now if someone could just help out the sign at Longhorn Meats on MLK, the Don-Mar sign on South Congress, and the Bluebonnet Court on Guadalupe.

I bought meat for Osso bucco at Longhorn the day before Valentines Day and it was wonderful. What was even better was the polite and wonderful service I received the next day from the young man and butcher that helped me when I went back with the meat. I asked the impossible, to cut the veal into two thinner pieces. Veal is very soft and the meat tore. So they replaced it with fresh cuts the size I wanted. They didn't have to do that but they wanted my meal to be perfect. Thank you Longhorn Meats, your the best.
