Austin really runs on food trucks, and there sure are a lot of ‘em in the city. There are well over 1,000 food trailers, and more opening every single day. To help sort through the growing number of offerings, here is Eater Austin’s guide to essential food trucks offering takeout and delivery services right now, serving everything from pizza to barbecue to lobster rolls to tacos.
That includes the barbecue from Valentina’s Tex Mex BBQ and LeRoy & Lewis, tacos from Veracruz All Natural and El Primo, sweet churros from Churro Co., fiery Thai food from Dee Dee, vegan West African fare from Wasota, shawarma from Beirut, and much more. This map includes food trucks that have physical restaurants as well.
As with all businesses right now, be sure to call ahead to make sure each truck is still open or if there are updates on current offerings and service models, as things are changing constantly. Be sure to wear a mask, tip well, and, if you’re ordering delivery, try to order directly from the truck themselves.
A number of Austin food trucks and host restaurant and bars resumed dine-in service or offer access to outdoor tables for dine-in service. However, this should not be taken as endorsement for dining in, as there are still safety concerns: for updated information on coronavirus cases in your area, please visit the City of Austin website. Studies indicate that there is a lower exposure risk when outdoors, but the level of risk involved with patio dining is contingent on restaurants following strict social distancing and other safety guidelines.Read More
