Get the Chicken Cone!

The Chicken cone is amazing and for a splurge, add the avocado! French fries are also very good. Near UT, so it's very convenient to those on west campus

It does what it says on the label. All the food is prepared fresh and served hot and delicous in a paper cone. Please add the Avacado to your cone it is a treat.

* have to start by apologising to Mighty Cone, they have another description for the cooking process, but I can't remember the exact wording. We'd had a lovely walk around Zilker Park and wanted to eat something, especially from one of Austin's famous food vans. It was lovely to sit at a table outside in the March sunshine, look at...

OMG my mouth is watering thinking about the Monster Cone. It is avocado, shrimp and chicken. in a cone. with mango slaw. o.m.g. It is fried, but with an almond crunch. Cant explain the flavor. So good.

This is one of my favorite food trucks. The chicken and shrimp cone is so filled with flavor, it's hard to describe. Service is quick and friendly.

My college aged son and I were watching a program on food trucks and they mentioned The Mighty Cone and the food sounded interesting. So we made that our family activity that weekend. Its located in a very nice permanent food truck park called Picnic (on Barton Springs). There is loads of seating (both in the shade and out), regular... More

The avocado and chicken cone were so good, especially their oen of a kind breading on it. My kids liked their burger, though it was pretty small. The mozzarella sticks were also good.

I saw The Mighty Cone at ACL but the line was really long. So, I tried the food truck on Barton Springs. I chose the fried shrimp and avocado. Who knew an avocado could be fried? It was delicious! It is served in a flour tortilla with slaw. It is easy to eat and doesn't make a huge mess. I... More

Their slogan said deep sauteed, I was turned off at first that everything was deep fried. But then I saw many people eating these fabulous looking cones at the ACL Festival. I decided to give the cone a try when we saw the truck outside the festival. I ordered the chicken which is apparently their most popular. They asked if... More
