Dock and Roll Diner will have the honor of becoming "one of the first food trailers to grace" fairly food truck free Westlake later this week, according to their press release. Their food seems to be a cavalcade of Austin-related dishes, with their Blue Banh-ett riff on banh mi, a South Westlake sandwich, and a Greenbelt sauce made from tomatillos and avocados. Despite the Austin-centrism, their signature dish is a lobster roll. Check out the press release below:

Dock & Roll Diner to Open in Westlake as One of First Food Trailers in the Area: Menu Features Globally Inspired Sandwiches Served on Fresh-Baked Rolls

(August 2011) Westlake Hills, TX — The newest craze in food trailers is putting Westlake on a roll. Dock & Roll Diner, a locally spawned retro food trailer serving up globally inspired fare on freshly baked, homemade bread rolls, is one of the first food trailers to grace the town of Westlake. Scheduled to open in late August, Dock & Roll Diner is located near the thriving intersection of Bee Caves Road and Highway 360.

A concept developed by Westlake natives Chef Lee Krassner and Adam Lewis, along with partner Daniel Dennis, Dock & Roll Diner is housed in a classic 1957 Airstream trailer and aims to exceed guests’ culinary expectations of “diner food” with a simple yet tantalizing menu featuring fresh, flavor-packed and affordable sandwiches.

Dock & Roll Diner’s signature dish, aptly named The Maine Event, is a mouthwatering cold sandwich of lobster tail, knuckle and claw meat, house-made Dock & Roll Mayo, lemon butter and chives.

Other stars of the menu include The Infidel Castro, a thinly sliced, Cuban-rubbed smoked pork butt sandwich with Prosciutto di Parma, gold label Swiss cheese, Dock & Roll Mayo, and pickles; the Bacon Love, a sandwich of chicken-fried Apple-wood smoked bacon with romaine lettuce, Roma tomatoes and Feta-Ranch spread; the Blue Banh-ett, a Vietnamese street-style sandwich of thinly sliced and caramelized smoked pork butt, Far East Slaw, cilantro, jalapeno and Umami (Special Hoisin) Sauce; and The Kahuna Tuna sandwich, with house-made “Kahuna” tuna salad, romaine lettuce and Roma tomatoes.

Dock & Roll Diner even offers a hometown favorite with its South Westlake sandwich, featuring marinated, grilled chicken breast, sautéed onions and poblano peppers, grilled corn, crumbled Cotija cheese and Greenbelt (Tomatillo-Avocado) sauce. All sandwiches are served on fresh-baked bread rolls. A variety of house-made slaws, salad, potato chips, tater tots and Elote (grilled Mexican corn on the cob) round out the menu.

Dock & Roll Diner is located at 6416 Bee Caves Rd. Just west of 360, right before The County Line in Westlake, and is family- and pet-friendly. Menu items range from $4.50 to $12, and every dish is made fresh and to order.
