I've searched around for recommendations on chilaquiles and have tried quite a few places. Taquerias Arandinas (off I-35 around 290 and on Riverside) serves my current favorite.
-Las Cazuelas on Cesar Chavez was okay, but the sauce just wasn't great.
-Trudy's serves a completely different version than I have had anywhere else and really just tastes like chips w/ a jalapeno sauce.
-Sazon was a favorite of mine several years ago when I lived south, but haven't been back for breakfast in some time.
Who am I missing? I don't really care for the cheese-laden migas served at every restaurant in town.
I actually like them at Polvo's. I usually substitute the Ranchero sauce (just my personal preference) but I think they are reasonable solid, if not a little wet.
We concur on the Curra's - though we had them at the Señor Buddy's location on HWY 290.
If this were a Seattle thread we'd send you to Señor Moose Cafe in Ballard. Still on a quest for our favorite and taking copious notes here.
@ebloom - we're with you on the migas... still just don't quite get it. Maybe it's just a preference for the over-easy eggs vs. scrambled...
I have only ever had them at Maudie's but I enjoy them there. I've only tried the Green Chilaquiles but they also have red sacue version.
I like the chilaquiles from La Casita on Anderson Lane. The chips are thick and don't get soggy quickly and you get a choice of red or green salsa, both of which are good, but I prefer red because the green is sour, as it is tomatillo-based. They are covered in a flurry of shredded queso fresco. The plate comes with a small side of fried potatoes, some refried beans, sour cream and diced white onion. Ask for their green sauce (similar to what El Pollo Regio has, but a little less spicy) so you can douse your potatoes in it!

The first (and only) time we tried La Casita we had a very unpleasant experience primarily due to some hair in the food. It's hard to go back after that. I've even brought up the restaurant in conversation with my wife on several occasions and she never remembers where it is until I mention our one visit.
There's a new place in Cedar Park called Los Chilaquiles. I haven't had their chilaquiles there, but I've had their enchiladas and they were good. I plan to go back and try their namesake sometime.
I went back to Sazon after a long hiatus a few weeks ago. I am happy to report that the Chilaquiles are still my hands down favorite. I even went back for dinner two more times and was super happy with those as well.

I'm heading to Austin tomorrow for a few days, and chilaquiles is one of my all-time favorite dishes to eat.
Do any of the places you've all mentioned make their chilaquiles from scratch? I'm a bit of a chilaquiles snob, and they just won't do if they're made from tortilla chips.
If you don't know what I'm talking about, they are "properly" made very quickly dipping the torillas in hot oil (so they're still soft) and then dipping them in the enchilada sauce.
If there's a place in town that does it like this, PLEASE let me know.
I saw that Dai Due was selling this:
Chilaquiles Verdes with Smith and Smith Chicken, tomatillos, crema, queso fresco, cilantro and a fried egg.
at the farmer's market in mid-october. Has anyone tried theirs?
