If they're in town, try and catch either or both The Texas Tornados and The Sir Douglas Quintet. Great Tex Mex sounds.

La Condesa is the upscale Mexican place downtown you want to take employees to.
I would follow this advice. Uchi is one of the best restaurants I have ever been to. Someone else mentioned it but when we go to Uchi or Uchiko (which is just as good) we never order. We just tell the waitress to bring out whatever the chef recommends. You end up trying things you would never normally order and it is all amazing.
Avoid bringing locals to The Oasis. The food is average but I would suggest you go there by yourself to see the views because they are amazing. See attached pic
Depending on the size of your group I would also look into The Barley Swine. It is very small but super high end food and the prices arent too bad. Expensive but not outrageous. They use all local ingredients and have a great beer and wine selection.
Also, La Condesa was mention which is in my top 5 n Austin. Get a house margarita infused with habanero.

Good luck getting a reservation for a company worth of people at Uchi.
Plus if you got that much cheese to spend on your employees, goddamn.
I was blown away with one of their specials a few years go, shrimp tempura roll..

This is why I said Fogo or Jasper's. Jasper's is a very good place to eat, and I am very find of their Cherry limeaid pie and Loaded Baked Potato Salad.
Fogo, well, all you can eat premium steak. What's not to like?

If you go at happy hour it isn't too bad. We got out of there for $150ish for 4 of us last time we went.
Jaspers? But he's staying in Austin. Why would he want to eat in Waco?
Um. Not sure if this is serious.
If it is, we are talking about the upscale restaurant inside the Domain off of MoPac.
My buddy is flying in Sunday, so I'm gonna have fun saturday and stay there. Only problem is one of the guys coming with me is 20. Are there any bars anyone knows of around 6th street we could all hang out at saturday night?
I'm staying at the Sheraton, right across from the street. Should I seriously get there really early sunday morning if I want some food?
You can forget about hanging at a bar after 9 with a 20 year old.
Okay, any other ideas?
Ill he honest, everyone I take downtown is of age, so I really don't know what ya could do Saturday Night. If you just want to eat, go to Frank, 3rd Base or hit up one of the late night trailers. Check what is going on on the campus of UT, which is about 10 blocks north of Downtown.
I would not eat all day and then visit every food truck you can. You can bring coolers of beer to the food trucks and sneak them to the 20 year old.
Lived in Austin from 98 to 2000. Some of my favorite places are the Crown and Anchor bar (total dive), Shakespear's on 6th (if you do have to go to 6th street, go here), Club DeVille on Red River, and Antone's for live music. Get a Mexican Martini at the Cedar Door. Get food at Rudy's and Trudy's and Kerby Lane and Hyde Park Bar and Grill.
Austin is a fun town. Enjoy!
There are 3 trucks he MUST do. The one that does Chicken and Waffles, 313 Pizza that does a darn good Detroit Style Pizza, and the truck that does Pomme Frites.
If you are going to do the food trucks, use this as your guide.

You're in college. The window of opportunity to drink and do drugs and take advantage of young girls is getting smaller by the day.

Its north of 183.
He should stay downtown.
Lived there for 3 years. I like Truluck's downtown. Good seafood and steaks. If Eddie V's is still there I always liked that. Kind of traditional steakhouse, you know the type, piano bar, expensive, but pretty sick. I would have to agree with everyone's take on Oasis. I lived and worked on the lake almost the entire 3 years and have been there a ton, pretty ill views, gets crowded, local favorite but a tourist spot. Everyone is dead on when it comes to Uchi. Been there for years now and is still blowin' and goin'. At there on Halloween in 08'. Super chic, very popular, food is incredible.
Your going to love that town. Late night if you boys hit the sauce, Katz's deli/Katz's never closes. The dude from NY sent his son down there years ago to open a Katz's close to downtown. Be on the lookout for a 4 door yellow cab looking 50 something cadillac with a heavy set bald jew from NY with a uber Texas wife with massive hair. I passed them in that thing a million times. Couldn't miss the dude if you wanted to. Pretty awesome pastrami and corned beef when you're hammered out.
One of the best sandwich shops in the nation is north/west of 183 (Nobel Pig).
Worst news in the history of earth. My friend lives in the 360 bldg. where the hell am I going to eat when I visit? It was the biggest mo brainer.
