Barbecue trailer Nutter Buster BBQ in way South Austin is officially closed. Its food trailer park home, The Barn, is enduring ongoing permitting issues with Sunset Valley. The process of waiting for the city council to approve of the lot's new plans and permits is taking too long for the trailer to be able to sustain itself. The shutter is indefinite until owners Lindsey Nutter and Brian Rauschuber figure out what to do. The trailer opened in 2013, and focused on brisket and pulled pork.
Sunset Valley sued the couple behind The Barn, Dennis and Anita Dunn, in February, citing that the food trailer park was operating illegally. They’re currently seeking to turn an existing building on the property into a beer and wine bar. The newly submitted plans and permits include a driveway, parking lot, and walkways, according to Community Impact. The city council postponed conversations on June 16 about the project until its next meeting.
