A Thanksgiving Trailer Story

I wrote a special piece for Culture Map Austin about a trailer that based their concept right at their Thanksgiving table.  Imagine one heaping dinner roll stuffed with everything on the table, and call it a favorite menu item.  That's what founders Ricardo and Jacob did when they opened the Rockin Rolls food trailer.  Check out the full story on Culture Map (link pending), which includes a recipe for my own father's Thanksgiving dinner rolls that is better than anything Sister Schubert ever put out (wink).

More trailers with Thanksgiving specials:

  • Trey's Cuisine will be serving Prime Rib, Savory Bread Pudding , Demi Glaze , and Broccoli for a cool $11 today (11/23).  And on 11/25, he's got 
    Roasted wild boar ( from Countryside Farms ) , Pan Gravy , & Roasted Pumpkin Hash until it's goneski.  1219 South Lamar Blvd.
  •  Torchy's Tacos has their famous Turkey Mole taco every November.  It's a Texas-fried Turkey taco which has Oaxacan mole sauce, Mexican rice, avocado, queso fresco and fresh cilantro.  1311 S. 1st St. for the trailer location.
