I'm working on a project and would like to enlist your help and get some feedback from all you Austinites. Is there a place in Austin that is sorely overrated and, if so, why? I'd also like to know if there's an alternative that you might suggest. Something like xxx is really overrated because...but if you go here XXX or even XXX you'll like it better because.....
The place can be a restaurant, an attraction, a historical site or whatever.
Thanks for any help you can offer....
My wife and I go to XXX often, and we're never disappointed.
My project is travel-related. I'd like to see if there are any places in Austin that the locals consider overrated and would suggest a different places to friends of theirs who came in to town to see the sights.
Does that help? (I'll cross XXX off my list now, thanks.)
Sorry, I'm coming up blank. I don't pay any attention to ratings, and I tend to avoid going into Austin if I can help it, so I can't really come up with anything that might be helpful to you. Okay, ~any~ Starbucks, anywhere -- Their coffee is skunk-water. I kind of doubt that'll be helpful to you, but that's all I can think of. TGI Friday is pretty disappionting too, but I don't know how they're rated.
Good luck with your project.
For restaurants, you might have better luck getting a response if you ask around at http://www.chowhound.com/boards/61. Here's one post which has a link to some good and recent threads: http://www.chowhound.com/topics/379039#2370135

I would say Stubb's is great to see a concert but the food is overrated.
6th Street is overrated in guidebooks, unless you count Red River with it, their are just so many frat boys etc
Jovita's is mentioned a lot, while they may have good music the food is terrible and way too over-priced.
These aren't quite what you may be looking for, but here are two other thoughts.
Oasis - yes it is worth the view, but the food is overpriced. Does anyone know a place on the lake that the food is not a disappointment for what you pay for it?
Salt Lick 360 - it is NOT Salt Lick. It is good and I actually love a few things on the menu, but it is a more upscale and pricey menu and the bbq is just not quite a good as the original. Go ahead and make the time to drive out to Driftwood and eat at the original Salt Lick - nothing else compares. (And don't forget your cooler of beer.)
The Oasis for drinks is fine but not a meal.
