As you drive along the very busy 1st street you'll pass a number of food truck areas and the only reason we stopped here is that it had a built-up covered area to sit. Little did we know we'd find such a neat place to eat that we came here twice during our week in Austin.
This is a fabulous little place to get tacos and seems like it is a local favorite. They have breakfast tacos all day (which I had both times) while my wife got what she described as "one of the best things I've ever eaten" - a fried avocado taco. The food was excellent and very fresh and we found it to be a great place to stop to eat. Both times we planned our trips to the sites downtown around stopping in for lunch and loading up on the good food while we toured Austin. There are a variety of tacos available to you with any number of toppings and salsa, so there is pretty much something for everyone.
One other thing, they have a deliciously rich desert - fried cookie dough covered in powdered sugar. Rich, decadent, completely unhealthy and....absolutely a necessity to have if you go there!
Another nice part of the taco-truck area is that you have several other nice places to chose from but there is a shaded sitting area (under the trees) and a built covered area for you to sit as well. There are bathroom facilities (nice enough) on site which makes it a great place to stop and eat at.
One other note: It seems the lunch hour gets busiest most days a little later than you might think (1-2) so if you can stop by ahead of the lunch (11-12) you should be able to get in and out.
