"Hello Austin Texas! How's everyone doing?" POTUS said as he entered Torchy's Tacos in south Austin.
Obama who has shed his jacket now as well, gave a hug to a very happy patron, and greeted kitchen staff in Spanish, saying "hola mucho gusto encantando" (thanks again to Andrew for that catch), before stepping to the counter to order from owner Aaron Sego.
Obama ordered three tacos for himself - a Democrat, a Republican "because I'm also bipartisan" and an independent. He also ordered a breakfast burrito for Press Secretary Josh Earnest, thus inserting the White House into the great breakfast burrito war that is shaking Texas' culinary foundations. POTUS also got a green chili taco for Mayor Adler and one for his traveling aide joe paulsen.
The total bill came to 18.40, which POTUS randomly called "a party." He paid in cash but your pooler couldn't see how much of a tip he left.
