If you haven’t noticed all the food trucks around Austin, Round Rock, and Pflugerville you must be holed up in a bunker.  Late last year, the City of Round Rock approved a pilot plot for food trailers.  Pflugerville and Georgetown are next on the list.  Besides downtown, South and East Austin, you can find trucks up north too!

Hey Cupcake! (10931 Research Blvd. Austin, TX 78759) Every month there is a special flavor on the menu, you can also pre-order online.  One cupcake is $3.

Went for lunch the NATY and tried Good To Go’s Black Bean Burger and the home-made potato and beet chips.   The beets are sweet and crunchy, I was surprised.  I should have put a little mustard and mayo on my burger, other than that it was a satisfying vegan lunch.

Also sampled the Three Meat from Johnny T’s BBQ, where the turkey was very moist and the pork was tender, with a side of beans and potato salad it’s enough to share!

A good feature here is the little play area for the kids (not in the photos, but it’s next to Johnny T’s) and if you’re a member of Planet Fitness you can work out at the location that shares the same parking lot.

A relatively new addition to downtown Round Rock just a few blocks north of 620 on Mays is a food trailer park.   The food trailer fever blazing in Austin has spread north to my town.  There are a baker’s dozen of trailers including Hey Cupcake!, Curly Pig, and The Beef Cake Shop where I ate lunch.

Fridays and Saturdays the park hosts live music in the evenings and movie night on Thursdays.  Check their Facebook page for details.

This weekend there was an inflated slide for the kids to play on while parents could nosh in peace.  It’s not a regular feature, the trailers pitched in to rent it this Saturday.  And since this is outdoor eating, bring your friendly dogs to hang out with, they might even get a biscuit.

I ordered a trio of sliders from The Beef Cake Shop.  The Day After Thanksgiving flavor was awesome, ground turkey with cranberries, stuffing and gravy.  The meatloaf was fluffy, actually all the patties were not compacted too tightly, just enough to hold together.  The pepperoni pizza was different, supposedly a kid favorite but not for mine.  There was also an Italian meatball slider that I did not try but the owner Jimmy says it’s a family recipe.  The other family recipe on the menu now is pumpkin pie, this was delicious and cured my craving for pumpkin.

The kids wanted ice cream and they each had a chocolate soft serve cone from Sylvester’s.

I sat with another couple as we watched the kids on the slide and the woman noted there were no coffee trailers, maybe there is an opportunity waiting?

If you’re in the neighborhood stop in and grab some grub!
