'The James Hetfield' Sandwich
The James Hetfield is a stuffed with "Master of Puppets" bacon-wrapped meatloaf blasted with "ride the lightning" spicy ketchup. Opening your mouth wide enough to eat this sandwich might prove to be a challenge, but don't let that stop you from appreciating the well-seasoned juiciness of the meatloaf, the spice of the ketchup, or the crispy saltiness of the bacon.
Kielbasa and Poppy Seed Kolaches
There are many places to pick up a kolache in Austin, but Lone Star Kolaches is reliable for its huge selection of kolaches, especially in the savory department. The kielbasa kolache stuffs a large link of the Polish sausage inside the dense and chewy breading. It's also one of the few places in town to pick up a traditional poppy seed kolache.
