Tuesday’s Pick: Truck by Truckwest

Rachel Corbelli

Austin’s mobile food festival, Truck by Truckwest, begins Tuesday. For six days, gallivant around the city sampling the best dishes from 60 participating food trucks. At the end of the fest, vote for your favorites in multiple categories to help one vendor walk away with $10,000.

The trucks will remain in their normal locations, spread out in 8 different districts across Austin. Hop from place to place in search of the best mobile food in the capital city.

As with other Austin festivals, wristbands are required in order to participate. Truck by Truckwest offers everything from one-day passes to six-day bands. Prices range from $12.95-$42.95. Kids 10 and under are just $9.95. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Keep Austin Fed.
