I came at about 7:30pm and there were some people in the food truck area on a Thursday night, but not crowded. I ordered the fried chicken and colesaw cone, which is the aforementioned ingredients wrapped in a flour tortilla shell. It was actually pretty tasty. I don't know if I would wait in a long line for one, but... More

While at Austin City Limits Music Festival this year, we tried the Hot and Crunchy Chicken Cone and Hot and Crunchy Chicken/Avocado Cone from The Mighty Cone and they were both AMAZING. The sauce they put on there was delicious. Would seek this place out again.

This is absolutely awesome dish. The chicken is cooked perfectly and the slaw is absolute perfection. I had to go back and have another one the same day. I probably could of had three. I will absolutely recommend this to everyone I talk to good eats in Austin.

I had the monster cone (Shrimp, chicken, avocado each "fried" in an amazing batter and then topped with some delicious sauce... all fantastic). Paired with the cheese sticks in jalapeno ranch, this lunch was decadent and fantastic.

Pretty much just meh to me and this is an averaged rating. Hubby really liked it but I wasn't so impressed....like at ALL. We ordered the Monster cone, some fries, and an espresso shake. The shrimp were tasteless underneath all that coating (which was good but not great). The chicken was really good though - perfectly cooked and tasty. The... More

I had the absolutely delicious "Monster cone" after Adam Richman showed it on his new TV show. Really very tasty, I think the shrimp and avocado was even better than the chicken, which is saying something. I'll be back for sure.

I don't know what it is about the chicken, but the breading is so good and the sauce on top is perfection. I want this every time I visit Austin. Lots of shaded outdoor seating makes it nice to bring the dogs along too!

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
