Neat little book. Very honest opinions and we have found that the authors views pretty much mirror our own. Not in all cases though, we have restaurants that we love that they rated poorly and vice-versa.

That said, it's a very useful book and has brought several restaurants to our attention that we didn't know about or didn't know enough about.

Obviously, you have to live in one of the cities that they publish but if you live in one of the target rich environments like Austin, it's a handy guide.

I'd also reccommend their other book, "The Wine Trials". These same authors did blind taste tests with 507 testers in a variety of cities, testing wines that ranged in price from under $10 to over $200. They then tabulated the results and published a list of cheap wines that beat the big boys. VERY INFORMATIVE. Fool your wine snob friends by decanting some of the top ranked cheap wines and telling them you paid a wad for them.

I bought this book when I moved to Austin and it is such a great book! Just flip to whatever genre you are in the mood for, and there all the top places in Austin. I also loved that you can search by area of town and special features such as kid-friendly, patio dining, drink ratings, etc. This is my second Fearless Critic Austin book and I will continue to purchase them as they come out with new ones.

I gave this as a gift to my dissertation supervisor at the Texas Department of State Health Services. She loved it, and now keeps it in the front near the administrative assistant's desk so everyone on the team can refer to it when choosing restaurants.

Austin has a huge problem with all the food critics pandering to the "Austin Institutions". Because of this it's REALLY hard to get a good idea about a place before you eat. I've already found a new place I like to eat from this book, and all the reviews are pretty spot on (they agree with my opinion that Casino El Camino has the best burgers in town.) So if you like food and plan on ever being in austin, this book is worth it's weight in gold. Willis Approved!

This is a great book with honest (not always nice) reviews of so many Austin restaurants.

so far, so good. 50/50 on the accuracy of the review, but definitely helps on narrowing down choices to eat at.
OMFG, this book saved me so much money! The Fearless Critic Austin guide cuts straight to the chase, preventing you from flushing your money down the toilet at so-called "local favorites" that don't pass muster. Ignore the hype and take it from the critics in this book, who travel incognito and spend their own cash instead of accepting industry freebies, then grade on a highly sophisticated four-pronged approach (food, vibe, price, alcohol--if any). Unbiased, and totally unafraid to call out the sacred cows in this alleged "foodie town," the book is also a great investment for wine, beer and margarita lovers looking to get their swerve on, somewhere far from the maddening 6th Street crowds. Like listening to a trusted friend who will never steer you wrong, the Fearless Critics cover everything from diners, trailers and dives to haute cuisine in a trademark cheeky fashion that'll have you laughing at their subtle digs and nodding your head about all the places you know and love.

One critique: some of the best places in Austin are actually not located in Austin, which can be frustrating at times. Austin traffic being consistently hellish, and Round Rock/Pflugerville being quite distant from the downtown core (especially at rush hour), you'll probably end up leaving these picks off your list of go-to restaurants. Fair enough including them, as they're worth the drive, but just beware if you expect all these eateries to be within a stoner's throw of downtown.

More cities, please!
