Fodor's Review

Local chef and native East Austinite Hoover Alexander has created one of the city’s best comfort-food oases, blending mama's home cooking, diner short-order specials, Tex-Mex favorites, and Cajun influences in one Southern comfort mecca. The self-styled "Smoke, Fire & Ice House" is known for its large portions and flavorful recipes. The Jamaican jerk chicken and chicken fried steak puts most others to shame, and “side mates” like mac and cheese, fried okra and
