There's nothing like South by Southwest (SXSW) Austin's three-pronged mega-major arts festival now in its 24th year, to draw thousands of visitors to an unknown city. Yes, you'll be running around crazy all week (parties, panels, screenings, and more parties) but you can still experience the best of what Austin's food culture has to offer. Check out Citizen Taco's picks for the best tacos, street food, barbecue, coffee, vegan eats, dive bar, and draft beer in between all that SXSW-ing.
