BURO! Burnet Road in Austin, Texas
Welcome to BURO! My name is Steve Cook – an Austin native and Editor/Publisher of BURO. My full-time job is developing websites in Austin. Having grown up here I spent a lot of time on Burnet Road – shopping, eating, and even going to drive-in movies!
I’ve watched Austin grow and change over the years. I saw South Congress Avenue transform from a sleepy, almost rural lane (complete with hookers at night), into a hustling and bustling sub-community known as SOCO. I hate to admit it but one of my best friends is the Mayor of SOCO.
Move over SOCO!
BURO! Like fine wine, it’s time has come.
It’s high time that Austin’s venerable Burnet Road, a.k.a. the Old Burnet Highway, received it’s own acronym – BURO! We have articles about Burnet Road people, places, businesses & organizations and we feature advertisements from BURO establishments.
I invite you to post a Burnet Road article or story. If you have a memory of Burnet Road or a business or organiazation on Burnet Road, please tell us about it!
