Tasty Tuesdays: Best Austin Food Trailers for Drunks

10 August 2010 4,117 views 5 Comments

For the final Tasty Tuesdays “Best Austin Food Trailers” entry, I’d like your help in putting together a list of the best Austin food trailers to visit between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m.

As Adam can tell you, I’m usually sound asleep by this time so I’m not really sure what the best trailers are to visit and I’d like to make sure I’m ready for a big night out on the town.

Here are some trailers that I know (or have learned from the amazing Austin Food Carts), are generally open at this time.

Red River Area

Downtown

Rainey Street Area

  • Baltimore Ballers – Rainey Street next to Lustre Pearl, Fri – Sat 12:00 p.m. – 2:00 a.m.
  • G’raj Mahal – Davis between Red River and Rainey, daily til 3 a.m.

South Austin

  • Gourdoughs – South Lamar, Every day until midnight, Fri-Sat till 3 a.m.

East Austin

When I was initially thinking about this post, the Official Muncher trailer at The Gibson on S. Lamar came to mind. Their “Trailer Burger” — a cheeseburger served on a huge Round Rock donut, seemed like the perfect addition.

However, the trailer has closed (probably temporarily) and will hopefully reopen in a new location soon so we can all add it to your list of late-night drunken eating binge stops.

What have I missed? Which of these are your favorites? Do you have any other tips for late-night eating? What do you recommend folks order when they stumble up to these spots?
