Day 1 - Thursday, February 21, 2019 - Austin’s Famous Food Trucks; Alma’s Tacos
Austin Food Trucks & Trailers
From our very first trip to Austin, Texas in 2006 we noticed “Food Trucks” or small trailers serving fresh cooked food along the sides of roads, dotting vacant properties, in parking lots, or next to city parks. These meals on wheels establishments are very popular in this vibrant and growing capital city of Texas.
During this semi-annual trip to see our son Eduardo, we decided to focus on a few of our favorite informal dining establishments and try new ones that Eduardo recommended. The food trucks we feature in this episode of GarciaTrips are established venues, each with their own websites, exclusive menus, and loyal clientele.

An everyday, all day favorite food truck in South Austin is Alma’s Tacos. Alma serves her famous flour and corn tortillas made from scratch every morning. We have enjoyed Alma’s delicious breakfast tacos for years, but she also has a lunch and dinner menu featuring her family recipes straight out of Aguascalientes, Mexico.
Every menu item is made fresh so there might be a line at her trailer off of Brodie Lane. The morning menu of “tacos de desayuno”, breakfast tacos are worth the wait. There is a small picnic table near the food truck, but most people sit out on the grass or in their cars until the orders have been filled.
Today there were four people ahead of us in line and as it was cold for Austin, no one was eating out in the chilly air. Alma greeted us and took our orders and her son was the chef frying eggs and turning out breakfast in the tiny kitchen.
Our choices for this morning’s meal were the chorizo, egg, and cheese and a sausage, egg, and cheese tacos for Vic. Gennie chose an egg, bacon, and cheese. All were served with green and red salsas. Happy to be back in Austin, we took our breakfast tacos back to Eduardo’s home to enjoy.
Really interesting theme you have chosen but do you realize how unfair it is.We get to read about it and see pictures of it but you get to smell and taste this delicious meal. I guess you just have to take us on this trip some time.

The Preserve was set aside to buffer some of the ecologically sensitive karsts in the area from encroaching neighborhoods. Karsts are caves that feed directly into the Edwards Aquifer below ground.
Because the three caves can be dangerous to hikers and nonprofessional spelunkers, they are...
