As for 78721, you will be happy to know it is very close to #1 rated BBQ place in all the country. That is not self proclaimed either. Franklin's BBQ is the rated the best in the country and I can tell you I have been to 100 top BBQ joints across the US and none beats Franklins. You will also be near one of the best Mexican restaurants in Austin in Juan in a Million.
78721 is also a great area because you are not far from downtown, UT, or the airport but not paying high real estate prices either. There are currently just 4 places for rent and one apartment complex in 78721. I am happy to email you those and see what you think.
Let me know how I can help. My services are absolutely free of charge.
