Austin's Most Underrated Food Trucks, Mapped

View as Map

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.
