The day after Austin City Limits, we met Mr. and Mrs. ssinca at Juan in a Million.
This Mexican hole-in-the-wall defeated Adam Richman of Man vs. Food.
Complimentary chips and salsa.
Salsa was fresh and kickin' -- this place doesn't hold back.
Limonada ($1.75) and horchata ($1.75).
Con Queso Breakfast -- two eggs served any style with queso, carne guisada, refried beans, potatoes, and two flour tortillas ($8.95).
At $8.95, this was one of the most expensive things on the menu. We couldn't go to Texas and not have queso, so we went for it. Yummy, but not life-changing in the least.
Don Juan El Taco Grande -- a secret combination of potato, egg, bacon, and cheese in a fresh hot tortilla ($3.80).
This is it, people. This is what everybody gets at Juan in a Million. This is what you should get. The mountain of cheese melts almost instantly. The plate is literally heavy with an entire Idaho potato in breakfast taco form. Truth be told, it could use a good bit more seasoning.
But it is a monstrosity for only $3.80. $3.80, people! For all of this!
Poor Adam Richman never stood a chance. Who the hell could eat eight of these? We could hardly get through one!
Before we headed home, we made one more loop around the downtown area.
I couldn't get enough of the Texas sky.
Austin is truly dedicated to Austin City Limits. The airport was plastered with posters.
SXSW some day!
