Trailer eateries are now and Austin, Texas staple. You can find almost anything you want to eat on any street corner with the many trailer eateries in Austin!

It’s no secret that we’ve been in love with Favor Delivery since day one. Now 18 months and hundreds (thousands?) of personal deliveries to our offices/homes later, we asked one of the Favor co-founders, Zach Maurais, what people in Austin Favor the most.

We’re guessing that Favor extending their delivery hours until 3am might have skewed these results towards the more munchies-worthy restaurants, but who are we to judge?

We’re proud to report that an overwhelming majority of these restaurants are local, so keep up the good work:

  1. Homeslice Pizza- Love it or hate it, it’s one of the top-rated pizza joints in Austin. A major drawback for years has been their lack of delivery. Favor changed that and the orders came flying in.

  1. Torchy’s Tacos- Suitable for breakfast, lunch and dinner, we weren’t surprised to see Austin’s original taco-truck empire show up on the list.torchys-austin-queso
  1. P Terry’s- Nobody likes a cold hamburger. With 10 locations in Austin, your burger and fries won’t have to travel very far, ensuring hot fries and cold milkshakes.

  1. Chipotle- Not so local, but we’re guilty of it too. And yes, we know the guacamole is extra.

  1. Kerbey Lane Café- Kerbey Queso rules. Breakfast delivered on a hung-over Sunday doesn’t sound so bad either.

  1. Fat Sal’s Deli- The Fat Sal Original is a hero sub packed with roast beef, mozzarella sticks and onion rings, INSIDE the sandwich. Being located on the drag isn’t hurting them.

  1. Whataburger- The King of Texas fast-food joints. No surprises here.

  1. East Side King- If you live in Austin and haven’t had ESK, stop reading this and Favor some poor qui buns with an order of chicken karaage.

  1. Gourdough’s Donuts- Refer back to the previous munchies comment. It doesn’t get much better than this.

  1. Elizabeth Street Café- The classiest bahn mi in the city.

  1. JuiceLand- Tastes good, and is good for you too. A win/win.

Juiceland-Austin

  1. Fresa’s- Tacos with organic eggs, and coffee from Stumptown for breakfast. Wood-grilled chicken with a side of Mexican street-corn for lunch or dinner. Trust me on this one.

Happy SXSW! The day has finally arrived. There is so much that I love about this week in Austin, everything from the delicious eats to the seemingly unlimited things to do.

For those that are on a mission to find the bets eats around SXSW, join us self guided ATX FoodCrawl. We’ve mapped out the best places to eat and if you instagram your food, you can be entered to win cool prizes. The Grand Prize is a set of tickets to the Food & Wine Festival.

Another favorite thing about SXSW is South Bites. South Bites is a one stop shop for trailer food during SXSW. Aside from their stellar location (the parking lot at the end of Rainey), they also have some amazing places to grab a bite.

Here’s a rundown of my top picks from South Bites:

Burro Cheese. It’s a local Austinite and pro BMXer Aaron Ross’ latest project, and it’s downright amazing. They take grilled cheese to an entirely new level.

Chi’lantro. They just took first place in Austin’s Mobile Food Throw Down, and they’re legendary among Austinites. Try the ‘Kimichi Fries.’

East Side King. Post Top Chef, Paul Qui became a household name. His original project with friend and Uchi co-worker Moto Utsunomiya, was the trailer East Side King. Local Austinites know to go here to enjoy his delicious creations at a fraction of the price of his latest restaurant, Qui.

Garbo’sthe lobster is shipped in fresh everyday making for one heck of a Lobster roll.

Are you ready to spend the next six days playing taste-tester for over 60 local trailer eateries?

Once you have your badge, it’s time to let the tasting tour begin! The tour covers the South First Trailers, the Eastside, rogue roaming trailers, and everything in between.

I suggest starting early, and coming up with a game-plan, because 60 trucks is a lot to conquer. Most of them are offering free samplings, live music, free beer and other perks when you present your TXTW badge, just be sure to check the website for specific details.

At the end of the week you get to cast your vote on which trailer is your favorite and worthy of the $10,000 grand prize. Last year’s winner was one of my personal favorites, Hey You Gonna Eat or What!?

Holy fried chicken! Actually, it’s not just the fried chicken that will have you coming back to this spot- the pulled pork is equally amazing. Both meats melt in your mouth, and the fried chicken just falls right off the bone. Everything on the menu definitely had a little bit of a spicy kick, and my mouth was on fire by the end of the meal, but it was delicious.

I couldn’t resist the opportunity to try the pimento grilled cheese, and boy, am I glad I did. An interesting yet delicious twist on a classic sammie. We capped things off with a side of mac and cheese; delicious.

Owner Erica, is the former pasty chef of award-winning restaurant, Congress, and this expansion into a full menu trailer of her own shows that she can do much more than desserts alone. She’s hit a home run with her take on southern specialties.

I discovered Chaat Shop at Trailer Food Tuesday last week and I’m already craving some more of their take on Indian cuisine.

1239785_215255841931681_1161048082_n

‘Chaat’ means savory snack in Hindi and is part of their street food culture. You can’t really go wrong with anything on the menu here, but  The Bhel Puri and Pani Puri are two of my favorites. Very fresh, flavorful and downright delicious.

The trailer is normally located behind the Wonderland bar on East 6th. If you stop by for a chaat, be sure to snag one of the craft cocktails from inside the bar as well!

If I had to pick between eating meals or desserts for the rest of my life, I would probably opt for the latter. Last week, I was introduced to churros for the first time, and my mind was blown.

churro

The best way to describe a churro is that its almost like a long donut stick covered in sugar and cinnamon. You can get simple traditional churros here, but the real treat is their specialty churros.

We decided to order one of everything on the menu, because why not? I don’t even know where to start. I think I am still on a sugar high. My favorite was the s’more topped churro- to put it simply, it left me wanting “s’more!” There is also a banana pudding offering, and a raspberry topped churro that were almost as good. Each of the options was unique and delicious, so depending on your taste buds, there’s surely one that will speak to you!
