Late-Night Pizza Truck Shutter
Roppolo’s Pizza is shutting down its late-night food truck in downtown Austin’s Warehouse District (never fear: the East 6th Street pizzeria remains open). The last day of the truck on Colorado and Fourth streets will be held on Saturday, February 16. The address is being turned into a hotel, as Austin 360 reported.

South Lamar Pizzeria Expands
One of Austin’s essential pizzerias, Giovanni’s Pizza Stand, which is hidden inside of a Valero gas station, expanded with a second location out in Leander last week. Similarly, it’s found within the Whitewing Market at 2036 Highway 183.

More Drag Shutters
Looks like there are more closures along the Drag. This time, it’s sandwich shop Fat Sal’s and Jamba Juice. This was the sandwich chain’s only location outside of the Los Angeles area. Also, a a new Korean and Japanese restaurant took over what had been Rise Biscuits and Donut’s space, Kokodak, as reported by the Daily Texan. Earlier this month, ice cream sandwich shop Moojo and Austin’s Pizza also closed.

Buc-ee’s Outside of Texas
Texans’ favorite road trip stop Buc-ee’s officially opened its first location outside of Texas. The lucky state is Alabama, and it opened earlier this week. Buc-ee’s still plans on opening locations in Florida starting in 2020.
