What a novel concept—a brunch place where you don't have to wait 30 minutes! But don't take the lack of weekday overflow as a sign of the quality of Junior's food, because the small Ladd's Addition joint makes a damn fine plate of migas ($8) with a side of killer potatoes. Though they could use a bit of extra kick (that's what the Aardvark sauce is for!), the migas at Junior's rival Podnah's Pit for the best Tex-Mex dish in Portland, a heaping plate of fluffy eggs scrambled with tortillas, onions, peppers and tomatoes. Almost everything on the menu has a vegan option, and an order of coffee comes with half and half, soy or hemp milk. Don't tell Fred Armisen and Carrie Brownstein, or Junior's could become a new punch line. MICHAEL MANNHEIMER.
