August's Trailer Food Tuesdays: Back to School!

Welcome back to school everyone! Wouldn't it be fun to take some back to school pictures at the food truck court with the city skyline in the background?  Bring the kids and a picnic blanket to have a fun dinner Austin-style.

Join us next Tuesday, August 28th from 5p-10p (that's right, you'll get an extra hour to eat) at the Long Center for Performing Arts at this month's Trailer Food Tuesdays in Austin, Texas.  We will have a mixture of music from local DJ's to live music piped into the courtyard.  Check back for updates with menus, follow us at @trailerfoodtues and find our page on Facebook.

This month features a fresh variety of some of Austin's favorite food trucks:

Meet Levi to the top left, pitmaster and owner of Woodpile BBQ. Barbecue runs deep in his veins: he grew up on a cattle ranch in Driftwood, about 20 miles southwest of Austin, TX.

Lucky J's Chicken and Waffles, Bahn Bahn, and Kebabalicious will bring a variety of eats and treats from their menus, so get ready to try some fried chicken, kebabs and sandwiches.

Chi'LantroDock and Roll Diner, The Peached Tortilla, and The Seedling Truck will also be joining us this month.  

You'll get to eat some Little Fattys at this month's TFT. The mother-in-law/son-in-law team of Chela Stoklosa and Chris Williamson blend traditional family recipes with bold, international fillings to create deep-fried corn gorditas that are anything but conventional.

We are also very excited about the Loveballs Bus making an appearance.
Owned and operated by Gabe and Sao Rothschild, the idea for the bus first arose when they moved to Austin from Japan and started eating at all the food trucks and trailers around town.  But something was missing....Takoyaki!  Gabe and Sao had been making Takoyaki at home in Japan and wanted to bring this treat to all Austinites!  After getting married in the fall of 2010 they decided to make it happen and Love Balls was born and officially open in March of 2011.  So what are Takoyaki?  Classically speaking they're pan fried pancake balls filled with chunks of octopus, pickled ginger, and scallions then topped with a savory Japanese brown sauce, Kewpie mayo, aonori, and bonito flakes!
