Manchaca is an area way down south in Austin, Texas. I've lived here for about half my life and I love it. Small amounts of traffic, low crime rates, nice places to eat. I couldn't ask for more from this little area.

Somewhat dangerous neighborhood, police rarely come.
I mean, most of the people hate each other and have grudges against each other.
