Quesoff, Austin’s big queso contest, was last weekend, and the event raised enough money for the Central Texas Food Bank and its partner agencies to serve meals more than 15,200 Central Texans in need.
The food bank was the beneficiary of the event, but there were queso winners, too.
The queso from team Willigan’s Island, from a local pickle company of the same name, won best in show. The team from Better Half Bar won best meaty queso, while Kesos Taco House won best spicy queso. The best vegetarian queso also went to Kesos Taco House, and the Austin restaurant Dai Due won the wild card award. Micklethwait Craft Meats earned an honorable mention.
