Last week, Eater asked readers to name their picks for Austin's most underrated food trucks. With over 1,000 trucks around the city, only a slim few get all the hype, and fall is the prefect time to explore the mobile dining scene beyond the usual suspects. Readers recommended everything from a brand-spanking-new Empanada Mia to South Congress stalwart Fat Cactus. Sleeper hit Kerlin BBQ got an impressive number of mentions too.
