The number of food trucks in Austin is overwhelming. With more than 1,000 trucks (many with quirky and kitschy themes, like "Biscuits and Groovy"), some might even say the scene is saturated. Don't settle for mediocre food served from gimmicky trucks! For this list, we wanted to highlight the trucks that represent the Austin scene at its best—scrappy entrepreneurs making excellent food with minimal overhead.
But keep in mind that food truck does not always equal quick and cheap. Be prepared to wait at these popular spots where the food is often made to order.
This is by no means a comprehensive list of the best food trucks in Austin—just our ten favorites right now. Please chime in with your favorites.
