I'll be going to Austin in a couple of weeks, my first time there. I'm going with my parents and brother to see the Formula 1 Grand Prix at Circuit of the Americas.

As the weather gets cooler here in the mid-Atlantic, I'm getting ready to put away my summer clothes and take out the winter stuff. But I'm hoping I'll have a chance to wear shorts and sandals again during the trip.

Our primary focus will be race-related events during the day, and we are staying at a hotel in south Austin. I think we might have a chance to explore a bit in afternoon and evening on Friday and Saturday. Does anyone have any suggestions? Any good restaurants that serve not-spicy, not-fried food and won't break the bank?
