  • Taco Town Taco: the real-life version of a Saturday Night Live joke combines tortillas and beans with an egg-and-sausage-stuffed crepe, pizza, and a blueberry pancake, deep-fried and dunked in chili.
  • Bacone: egg, cheese, hash browns, and gravy with a biscuit on top, all inside a deep-fried cone of bacon.
  • Bacon Explosion: more—you guessed it—bacon wrapped around sausage and even more bacon.
