Happy for them, sad for me and the even longer lines that I’ll now have to suffer.

    They've been popular for a long time. I dunno that a CNN article is going to turn them into the next Franklin with 5 hour long lines.

    My luck so far has been pretty good on lines there.  I am hoping to take my crew down there over Thanksgiving weekend for a RDH breakfast taco.

    Also, while I am extraordinarily loathe to use the term "Fake News":
     "Like many Austin restaurants, Valentina's also serves breakfast burritos, which can include chorizo, refried beans and tomato serrano salsa, all "hecho con amor" (made with love)."

    Burritos are what you get in SF.  Here, we have tacos.

  • well $hit. Looks like breakfast at Valentinas tomorrow or Sunday before the hipster masses descend like locusts. 

    Mickethwait it right behind them. They probably have better bbq but the Tex-Mex angle at Valentina's is unique.

    It’s still very easy, but it’s gotten progressively longer from the parking lot they used to occupy (which was actually closer in to town).

    I think their capacity is limited by the serving trailer.  If they had two registers and more people prepping orders, then the seating would be the problem.  I’m actually not anxious for them to move into that building, I’m happy as they are now, and good for them.
