Austin is as famous for its food trucks as it is for their long lines in the summer. With the help of our friends at Yelp, we’ve rounded up some of the newest trucks to the scene, and some that may not have hit your radar yet. Grab a friend, some sunscreen, and maybe a cooler – you have some trucks to catch.
Gangham Style Bowl with Fried Egg, Wonton Chips – $8
We love a good double entendre. We love it even more when it comes with a side of fabulous fusion food. These Food Network vets would dig nothing more than for you to roll up and load a bowl (with steak and sticky rice, side of special wontons).

From Top: Campfire ($4.50), Traditional ($3.50), and Blue Ivy ($4.50)
When someone offers you a churro rolled in graham sugar, topped with toasted marshmallows, Mexican chocolate sauce and whipped cream, you just say yes. Or please sir may I have another. There’s no way it gets better than this.
Living just outside of Spiderhouse, Love Balls speciality is Takoyaki, a Japanese street food. Classically speaking they’re fried savory pancake balls, filled with curry stew to rice and seaweed. To quote our friends, “Love Balls are served piping hot! Be patient, be careful, and don’t forget to BLOW!”
T-LOCO’S SONORA HOT DOGS
Sonora Style Hot Dog (Regular) – $5
What’s better than a Hebrew National hot dog wrapped in bacon with tomatoes, onions, pinto beans, mayo and jalapeno sauce? Nada mi amigos. T-Loc’s is whipping up some authentic Sonoran-style hot dogs on the side of Burnet Road and we’re not mad about it. It’s a heart attack waiting to happen, but we still deem it worth the risk. Plus, these guys have a cute wrap around patio to sit and chow down on.
With a big beautiful patio and great tunes most evenings, Stay Gold’s adorable food trailer Toaster is a sweet little date night. The garlic, habanero, arugula, prosciutto and balsamic pizza pairs well with all types of frosty local brews.
Zesty Blonde Chili Fries with Avocado, Pickachili Sauce – $8.75
Introducing the new kid on the block, a truck where you can top your favorite entree (frito pie, sweet potato fries, etc.) with any freaking chili you want. Take for example, the Red River Chili – made with Shiner beer. Right by La Barbeque, pick-a-chili while you wait.
Brazilian Street Food
Picanha Grelhada – $13
Sao Paulo isn’t the only Brazilian game in town. Boteco serves traditional Brazilian street food like yucca fries, coxinhas and feijoada. Don’t know what that means? All the more reason to go on a culinary adventure. BYOCaipirinha!
