10 Must-Try Vegan Food Trucks in Austin

Take a tasty tour of Austin, Texas with the help of these restaurants on wheels.

Looking for vegan food trucks in Austin? We’re here to help! From Frito Pie to Crab Rangoon, these spots go big or go … well … they just go big, because this is Texas, and that’s how they do it here. Whether the menus serve up bao or BBQ, burgers or burritos, these vegan food trucks have what you’re craving.

Plow Bao

Scallion Pancake Wraps, Chili Oil Wontons, Crab Rangoons—shall we continue? Plow Bao is your spot for plant-based dim sum, bao, and more. Try their French Toast Bao Sandwich or their Pan-Fried Pork Dumplings, or treat yourself with an Oreo Cheesecake Pocket. Say what? Yes—Oreo Cheesecake Pocket!

Arlo’s Curbside

With plant-based takes on traditional favorites, Arlo’s Curbside is the perfect spot to visit with your non-vegan friends. Arlo’s is unique among food trucks in that its two locations are stationary. Be sure to hack your burger like the locals—with mac ‘n’ cheese right between the buns! Or order the Frito Pie—chili loaded with … you guessed it … Fritos. Side it all up with tots or fries.

The Vegan Yacht

Voted best vegan burrito, The Vegan Yacht serves up a variety of handhelds, like the Freeto Burrito (tempeh chili, corn chips, avocado, and vegan cheese in a grilled flour tortilla) and the Smokehouse Burrito (BBQ tempeh, whole wheat mac ‘n’ cheese, slaw, red onion, pickles and avocado in a grilled flour tortilla). Or try a Chili Dawg, Buffalo Bowl, or the Mini Freeto Pie. Be sure to pick up some TVY merch while you’re there!

Sassy’s Vegetarian Soul Food

Let’s just talk about that Pokechop Sandwich! It’s mustard fried and topped with Vi’s Piccilli Relish (cabbage, onion, pepper, and cucumber). Sassy’s offers up 100% vegan soul food at their new location of Kenny Dorham’s Backyard food court. Celebrate all things plant-based with their fried cabbage, black-eyed peas, Cajun street corn, fried okra, and Hot Water Cornbread.

Possum Pizza

If “Possum’Roni, Sup?, Pup!,” and “Bac’n Mac!” sound like pizzas you’d like to try, then check out Possum Pizza. This couple-owned, 100% vegan food truck serves up thin-crust pies in classics and rotating specials. Be sure to add some mozzarella sticks, fries, or cheezy bread to your order. And great news for those of you with nut allergies—this pizza spot is also 100% nut-free.

L’il Nonna’s

It’s a New York-style pizzeria on wheels! With gluten-free options, organic flour and tomatoes, and a yummy selection of pies, L’il Nonna’s will be your new favorite spot for Friday night eats—or your new favorite spot for everyday eats. Open Tuesday-Sunday from 2-10pm, their pizza options include Beeteroni ‘n Cheese, Margherita, Pina Jalapeno, and more. Our favorite?
