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

try the Don Juan Taco, its a must have! It is enormous and after eating one, you will be set for the day.. and go on an empty stomach. I love their breakfast menu and their salsa! The service is great too!!

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

The breakfast chorizo and eggs is a solid meal, which is spicy and well portioned. The flavor is nothing outstanding, but overall tasty and well worth the reasonable price. I have heard the lunch is better, but have not tried it yet.

My kind of restaurant. Atmosphere and quality of food was as advertised. We love non-chain restaurants and good local food. We were not disappointed. Lunch special was a bargain. We will be back for breakfast the next time we are in Austin. BTW - welcome and strong hand shake from Juan was appreciated

Two words Don Juan. It's what they are famous for making. Basically put 3 breakfast taco s worth of filling in 1 tortilla. Here's a tip order 2 or 3 extra tortillas so you can enjoy all the goodness of the Don Juan. Get there early to avoid the long lines and wait. Cons: The tortilla are not that great... More

Had lunch during a layover in Austin Texas. The front of the store is humble. The inside an authentic border cafe and that is coming from a girl raised in El Paso. I know real Mexican food. It was a little pricy but all in all I would return on a future visit! Ole

Got a rave review of this place from a friend and naturally had to try it. Let me just say, they have ahhhmazing breakfast tacos! They are HUGE! Super good and very fresh. I probably could have shared with my friend, but I was apparently feeling greedy and ate the whole thing. Definitely would have been enough for 2 people... More

Went here just because it was on Man vs. food. I do not agree with Adam Richman's opinion. I think it's just average, nothing to write home about. There was a line out the door so we waited a while to be seated. We were brought to the back where I felt like I was in an old Mexican's house,... More
