Migas is one of the nation’s great regional breakfasts. It is a Tex-Mex scramble of eggs along with broken-up tortillas that range from crunchy to cornbread-soft, and it also can include sausage, tomato, and a mantle of melted cheese. Unlike a grab-and-go breakfast taco, it comes on a plate and demands a fork.
Eating at Houston's Avalon Diner is a happy event. Hamburgers dressed with tomato, lettuce, pickle, onion, mustard and mayonnaise are some of Texas' best.
The Monument Café in Georgetown makes some of the best pies in Texas; meals that precede them (including breakfast) are masterful roadside-restaurant classics.
