Juan in a Million

Today’s breakfast was on the East side of town.  Juan in a Million is a Tex-Mex Restaurant that opened in 1980 on East Cesar Chavez, and is still going strong.  I ordered from the breakfast menu and chose the Con Queso Breakfast which includes “Two eggs served any stle with queso, carne guisada, refried beans, potatoes and two flour tortillas”.  I’m pretty sure this is a healthy way to start your day…

Pelon’s Tex-Mex Restaurant

My afternoon plans were to attend the “Quesoff” at the Mohawk in downtown Austin.  These plans were squashed when I showed up about thirty minutes early and the line went down the block and wrapped up the hill from there with no end in sight.  Apparently, queso contests are extremely popular on beautiful sunny days in Austin.  So, instead, I checked into Pelon’s for some brunch.  This place is nice with a gorgeuos deck and groovy air-conditioned interior.  The food needs a little work, but the location is perfect and the staff was great.  See you next year, queso judging party!
