Los Angeles’ best breakfast burrito truck The Rooster is finally making progress with its Texas expansion. The food truck will be found at 1606 East Trailer Park on East 6th Street, instead of its originally-slated spot at La Barbecue’s old home at the Aztec Food Trailer Park on East Cesar Chavez. It’s opening sometime in May.

For its Austin location, Rooster will feature a monthly breakfast taco special in collaboration with Austin chefs. It’ll also serve bread from Texas French bread and Cuvee Coffee’s cold brew. Chef/owner Rouha Sadighi said people should expect some sort of barbecue dish, as well as migas, as she told Eater last year.

It’s sale to expect breakfast and brunch dishes like the Rico Suave burrito, full of tater tots, bacon, avocado, eggs, and cheeses. Plus there will be breakfast sandwiches, burgers, and avocado toast.

Rooster was originally pegged to open last fall, but it was delayed until now. Sadighi opened the truck in 2016 in Los Angeles. She previously worked at California restaurants like Joe’s on Abbot Kinney and Bouchon. She also competed on Chopped and Cutthroat Kitchen.

Rooster’s fellow food trucks at 1606 East Trailer Park include Austin Halal and Somethin’ Italian.

This article has been updated to reflect that The Rooster’s breakfast burrito won’t be available at Alfred at the Line ATX Hotel when it opens this spring, but it might join the menu afterwards.
