Food trucks

My fiancée and I will be visiting Austin for the first time the last week of May. We love food trucks and want to try to hit up as many as possible. Which ones should definitely be on our list?

      I just loved reading the names of these food trucks! I was thinking about making a mid-summer venture into Texas but was hesitant because it'll be so hot- I think this food will be worth the heat! I'm going! · (1 likelikes)

    I'll have to third Torchy's Tacos. Gourdough's is fantastic if you're a doughnut fan!

    East Side King and Torchy's Tacos are great ones. Something else a little different is Gourdough's Truck food truck around the 6th street area.

    You absolutely, no doubt, have to check out Hey!...You Gonna Eat Or What? It's a weird name, but a fantastic cart.

    The posters above have covered the food trucks. I know you didn't ask this, but since you're asking about food, and you're in Austin, it is absolutely necessary to check out at least a few of the many outstanding Texas BBQ houses. Franklins BBQ is a spectacle, but its an experience you can say you did. Snow's BBQ is another great one. Kreuz Market is another outstanding place. If you do venture for the 3 hour wait to eat at Franklins BBQ, make sure to get a beef rib (not on the menu).

    There's so many you literally cannot go wrong, but two of my favorites: Burro (gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches) and Chi'Lantro BBQ Truck for the Kimchi Fries.

    The pizza at Via 313 is ranked one of the best food trucks in America. I LOVE the gyros at Kebabalicious and pork or beef Korean tacos at Chi'Lantro BBQ Truck. Chi'Lantro BBQ Truckimage from chilantrobbq.com

    only repeating because you really have to try these - East Side King , Gourdough's Truck for dessert, Torchy's Tacos for breakfast taco - ranch hand with diablo sauce is my fave!


    G'Raj Mahal Cafe in the rainey street district for indian food and atmosphere of the neighborhood.


    And i love Dock & Roll Diner for their lobster rolls.


    As tempted as you might be to get a cupcake at hey cupcake, go to Sugar Mama's Bakeshop instead!

    Taqueria Mi Trailita, at 5301 Manor Road by the Gulf station. Authentic Mexican $2 tacos, with delicious, hand-pressed corn tortillas made to order. Friendly service and lots of meat options, gorditas, and breakfast tacos, too. Some other taco places are overrated, but this simple truck is the real deal. http://www.yelp.com/biz/taqueria-mi-trailita-austin
