They come for the migas enchiladas — scrambled eggs mixed with cheese, pico, jalapeños and tortilla strips, wrapped in corn tortillas, and topped with queso. They come for the steak and eggs, especially the chicken fried steak smothered with cream gravy. But mostly, the people who flock to Ozona Grill for weekend brunch come for the Bloody Mary bar. Huge bowls of avocados, pickles, jalapeños, olives, pico, lemons, limes, celery, carrots, chives and shrimp — it can almost overwhelm rookies. But some of the regulars “use this as appetizers and sides,” says general manager Sarah Rau. Throw in five kinds of mix, three brands of tomato juice, and an array of hot sauces and spices, and as one waiter quipped to a patron: “If you can’t find it, you probably don’t need it.” Prices start at $4.50, depending on which vodka you choose (virgin are also available). Weekend brunch begins at 8 a.m. and lasts until 2 p.m., but the Bloody Mary bar stays open until 4 p.m.
