    COVER 2, the little brother of Austin’s own upscale sports-focused restaurant, COVER 3, is now hosting weekly crawfish boils every Wednesday this spring while supplies last. Attendees can choose between their choice of a pound of crawfish tossed in COVER 2’s signature mild or hot sauce or a pounded of “loaded crawfish” served with mushrooms, sausage, corn, and potatoes tossed in COVER 2’s signature sauce.

    This is the trailer in town to come to if you are looking for some unique Cajun cooking.  They have a variety of options from live crawfish, to alligator, to amazing gumbo.


    I would definitely recommend the gumbo since I have pretty high gumbo standards.  It was great, flavorful, and filling.  They are also known for their crawfish so make sure you treat yourself.

    There is something about eating at a food truck.  Nine times out of ten I am blown away by the service.  They have a lot of unique options coming from a trailer so your best bet would be to talk to them and get their opinion if you are unsure of what to order.  The trailer has the local feeling and friendliness that I enjoy so much about visiting trailers around town.

    The NATY (North Austin Trailer Yard) has a great atmosphere, a playground, and plenty of seating so it’s a fun place to check out.

    I’ve said it before, but I’m always amazed at what I can get from a trailer.  It’s never ending.

    Hours:  Tuesday – Sunday 11:00 a.m. – 9:00 p.m.
