The Oasis on Lake Travis (Austin)

When a place bills itself as the “Sunset Capital of Texas,” it better live up to the boast. The Oasis on Lake Travis does. It's located on a cliff 450 feet above Austin's Lake Travis, so customers get a masterful view. It also has the largest outside seating in Texas, so plenty of people can watch the sun going down while eating Tex-Mex and seafood. The view is so amazing, and such a draw that there's even an annual sunset photo contest.

 

The menu? It's Texas, so there's queso, of course. Some other interesting apps include, "fireballs" (spicy chicken bites with jalapeño ranch), and seafood-stuffed avocado. Mains include enchiladas, chile rellenos, and again, of course, "sizzling" fajitas.
