5 Must-Try Food Trucks in Austin, Texas

food trucks in austin tx

New, exciting, and most of all delicious food trucks are popping up all over Austin. These mobile restaurants offer some of the best food in Texas. Sure, that’s a bold claim because Texas restaurants give us some of the most scrumptious food in all the United States, but once you’ve checked out the food these trucks have to offer, you’ll understand. We’ve rounded up some of the most amazing trucks located in Austin, which are sure to blow your mind. You won’t want to miss a single one.


1- Syriano Shwarma

From Austin to Syria, this food truck offers authentic Syrian casual eats. All their meats are natural and kosher and the food is made fresh daily, by the friendliest owner in town, Fadi. Whether you are looking for a plate of homemade falafel balls or some baba ghanoush, they have it all.

Try the beef shawarma wrap: beef, shawarma spices, fresh parsley, onions, pickles, and fresh tahini sauce, all wrapped in Syrian pita bread. It’s simply delicious.

2- Ceviche 7

From Syria to Peru, “Ceviche is a great inspiration basically made with raw fish, lemon, salt, and unique spicy peppers from Peru creating an explosion of flavor in your mouth, come and try this culinary adventure!”

I think they said it all. Share a plate of salchipapas and arroz chaufa (Peruvian fried rice) with a friend, or if you are looking for something new in the sandwich department, try their sandwich De Lomo Saltado (beef stir fry sandwich). Their food is out of this world (or at least out of this country).

3- Paperboy

Do you love breakfast food? If so, you’ll love Paperboy. This truck is located in the uber-hip East Eleventh and their patio is the perfect place for a leisurely brunch with friends. Their dishes are not your everyday-simply breakfast meal. Their use of pimento cheese on brioche bread will tickle your taste buds, and for those with a sweet tooth, the “sweet” toast is the way to go; toasted bread topped with ricotta cheese, granola, honey, tangerine marmalade, and strawberries. Yum!

4- Baton Creole

Louisiana cuisine at its finest. If you love the flavors found only in Cajun and Creole food, you must visit this food truck. Lynzy “Pub” Moran brought her masterpiece dishes to Austin in 2013, they are rare to find in Texas, and they certainly do not disappoint. From her mouthwatering Jambalaya Baton (jambalaya deep friend on a stick) and her Crawfish Etoufee to the perfectly spiced Cajun Poutine fries with brie, this Cajun & Creole truck is in a tasty league of its own. Drop what you’re doing and hit up this truck for some gumbo immediately.

5- La Barbeque

Of course, a barbecue joint is going to be on this list. This is Texas after all. Located at the Aztec Food Park, this truck packs a meaty punch. Their hours are Wed-Sun, 11 am to 6 pm (or sold out), and you won’t want to saunter up around the 6 pm mark because this barbecue rarely makes it that long. So, meat lovers of the world, grab some brisket, make a mess with some ribs, enjoy a turkey sandwich, and don’t forget to order a side of homemade chipotle slaw. This crew knows barbecue.
