Juan in a Million has been there for a long time. Great Mexican food. Plan ahead though because it can be crowded! Nice food. Crowded restaurant. But worth it!

Best name for a restaurant ever. 1 breakfast taco with a couple of extra tortillas is way enough for 2 people and is under $5. The guy who runs it (Juan) is somewhat of an Austin cult figure - hear he's won an award for the best handshake in Austin. Just go - fab food and great service.

This is just ho hum in the choices for a Tex-Mex breakfast in Austin. Their Migas are just ok. Best part is the guacamole, flour torts and beans and horchata. The best part is eating outside in the patio area. Keep your expectations in the "C" range and you won't be disappointed. My eggs with machaca were dry and tasteless.... More

I'm not a fan of tex mex so finding this location based on the food traveling channel was great. The salsa spicy cold but great it's been awhile since I've had yellow chips but the taste was great. I ordered a basic breakfast but that's what I love. Scrambled eggs 2, fried beans, potatoes and additional side bacon. I had... More

It's a little "hole in the wall" restaurant! The owner greets you with a HUGE smile and his staff should is phenomenal! The food is totally amazing and plates are completely full. Make sure to try the Don Juan - you can literally feed 4 people (2 burritos each)! Don't leave Austin without trying this place!

Impossible to eat this huge breakfast taco. A $4.60 scrabble of eggs, potatoes and bacon topped with shredded cheese. Be prepared to be asked if you want extra tortillas the serving size is far greater than the two given (or for that matter the total of 4 I had). Maybe a little too much potatoes but none the less a... More

A crowded dining room at 10am should have been the sign of good food. Maybe I missed something. No charm in the surroundings but that could be overlooked if the food made up for it. The coffee was typical of department store lunch counters 30 or 40 years ago. The migas was underwhelming. $10.65 for coffee and migas w/o cheese,... More

It doesn't matter if it's your first time in or your 100th, owner Juan Meza will make you think he's known you your whole life. The way he shook my hand and greeted me with a big smile, I was thinking, "have I met him before and just don't remember?" It's THAT kind of place. They're famous for "The Don"... More
