Best Things to Eat in AustinHow do these rankings work?
This spot ranked No. 2 on our list of the 50 Best Tacos in America. So, it’s easily the spot with some of the best tacos in Austin. The sisters behind Veracruz All Natural, Maritza and Reyna, have been serving locals some of the best authentic Mexican tacos for years out of food trucks. Recently, they’ve upgraded to brick-and-mortar stores, which we’d definitely put on our list of unmissable things to do in Austin if you’re ever in the area for a visit.
They serve up some of the best BBQ in America and their mixed platter is the stuff of legend. Great brisket, sausage and pulled pork, but the pork ribs are a thing of pure beauty.
Cooked slow and low, the meat falls off the bone as soon as you pick them up. Quite possibly the best ribs you will ever taste.
Want a downright droolworthy sandwich in Texas? Noble Sandwich Co. has created unique grilled sandwiches like the Thai Chicken, the Smoked Duck Pastrami, and the infamous Noble Pig Sandwich (which gathers spicy ham, pulled pork, provolone, and bacon).
As well as their store (which serves amazing breakfast sandwiches on homemade biscuits), they also have a Food Truck which roams around the city for sandwiches on the go.
They make all their own ice cream with 100% Mill-King milk & cream and are known for their vegan flavours, which have been a big hit.
They’ve been going strong since 2011 and change their flavours with the seasons. Once you taste it once you’ll be hooked for life.
A traditional pizza with some funky ingredients makes Bufalina so special. Choose summer squash, salsa verde, pickled onion and peanuts or a harissa lamb pie.
