Food trucks are the lifeblood of Austin, providing a quick, tasty, and often spectacularly unhealthy meals for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and drunk. Many of Austin's hottest new restaurants, especially on the casual side, got their start as trucks, and the trend shows no sign of abating. Here's seven new trucks to check out across town during this lovely window of spring weather.
Jeffrey's, Clarks' and Perla's alum Hannah Love is doing brunch on a truck at newly opened bar Stay Gold near East Cesar Chavez and Chicon. The concept is "elevated home cooking with a Southern twist," and in addition to weekend brunch the truck serves grilled cheese, pierogis, and much more.
Boteco focuses on Brazilian street food like yucca fries and feijoada. After a brief stint at Southbites they're currently parked at East 7th Eats at 1403 East 7th.
This new truck at 2201 South First specializes in Venezuelan food, especially arepas. The sizeable menu is up on Yelp.
This "Texitalican" truck specializes in a mash up of Texas, Mexican, and Italian cuisine. Think tequila chicken pasta and chorizo meatball sandwiches. They're temporarily on the move while Bar 2211 renovates their patio, but can usually be found there at 2211 Webberville Road.
Baby's Badass Burgers
An outpost of a Los Angeles-based woman-owned breastatruck chain is now open in Austin. The concept: ladies in booty shorts slinging burgers with sexified names like "The Cougar." After starting out at the GoodLife Food Park on Cesar Chavez, they've moved up to The Domain outside the iPic movie theater.
Ironwood Barbecue and Golden Spike Rail Cart
The Buzzmill has added two new food trailers to their Riverside-adjacent patio lot. Ironwood Barbecue replaces the Blue Ox in the smokey meats department, and Golden Spike specializes in vegan "East meets West" comfort food. In other words, there will be beer can chicken and vegan waffles all in one convenient location.
