They brought the funkiest menu in Austin so far, with tacos like the Dirty Sanchez (scrambled eggs with a fried poblano chile), and Brushfire (Jamaican jerk chicken, grilled jalapenos, and mango). Crossroads is also highly recommended (smoked eef brisket with grilled onions), or you can build your own breakfast taco anytime.
