What’s the difference between a breakfast burrito and a breakfast taco? As Austin has literally gone to fake war over its breakfast tacos, you might be asking the wrong city.

Eater broke the news this week that Los Angeles’ “best breakfast burrito” in a city that is known for them is coming to Austin sometime in September.

The Rooster is famous for its packed Rico Suave burrito, which is stuffed full of eggs, tater tots, bacon, cheddar cheese, cotija cheese, avocado and salsa.

The owner of the truck, who has competed on “Chopped,” told Eater that there will be Austin-specific menu items, including a barbecue breakfast burrito and a migas dish. 

But what is a breakfast burrito really? Is it just a bigger tortilla? Are there rules about what goes inside? How many eggs does it take to fill one of those things? 

You’ll have to wait till next month when the truck debuts at the Aztec Food Park on Cesar Chavez Street for answers.
