The machine will, depending on where you are in Austin or going to in Austin, make you take 290.

I do not think you should take 290, unless there's a massive explosion on 71.

The wild card is if a big event gets out of the race track while you're on 71. There was some damn motocross event I hit once after Waze had told me to go that way. Just real bad timing.

It's 2019. Use Waze.

9/10 times Waze knows better than you.

Ugh.

The difference in times is very small. Waze tries to make you do stupid shite all the time to save one minute. Sometimes you should use your own brain and decide that making an unprotected left onto a four lane highway is a bad idea.

Waze doesn't know it's a speed trap nightmare.

I use Waze every day. It isn't infallible.

I'm not talking about little shite like that.

I'm talking about stuff like knowing there's a wreck on one route so you take another.

Dude just use Waze. Kinda hard to predict traffic months in advance.

It’s really 6 one way/ half a dozen the other.

I’d take 71 past Sealy if you are staying south of downtown and 290 if you’re staying north of downtown.

re: Best driving route from BR to Austin?
If you take 290 out of Houston, you'll go through Brenham. (Jarrett Lee's hometown) but 290 is a long stretch of twists and turns with too many stop lights.

If you love BBQ, it's highly recommended that you keep going west on I-10 past the 71 exit at Columbus and continue on to the Luling-Lockart exit (Where the Buccess's is) and have some World Class BBQ at Kreuz Market, Smitty's or Black's in Lockart, then continue on north to Austin. (It's worth the side trip) Louie Mueller BBQ in Taylor (Just north of Austin) is also awesome...….

290 is ok with the exception of going through Elgin and Giddings.


Giddings has a f**king train that can be long and slow. It frustrates the hell out of you because you've been driving for a long time and you're almost there but, no, now you have to sit and wait for a f**king train!.

As others have said, find out where in the Austin area you're going first. I have fam in Round Rock (a 'burb north of ATX) so I take 290 all the time.
