Food Truck Paradise: The Picnic

Food Truck Austin TX

When you want a twist on traditional cuisine, locally sourced ingredients, or to meet your chef face to face, food trucks are your go-to. Hunting down your favorite food truck is all part of the fun, but when you want all the choices you could ask for in one convenient place, The Picnic in Austin, TX, is the place to go.

Let's see who's pulling into their parking lot!

The Idea Behind The Picnic

The Picnic was built to support and showcase local businesses. It takes endorsement to the next level. The Picnic allows local food trucks to provide guests with convenient amenities that they wouldn't have while simply roving the city streets.

There's plenty of parking, so guests can stop by for a visit anytime. They also have structural pavilions and air-conditioned restrooms!

Whether you're working up an appetite or walking off your big lunch, The Picnic is also home to a rotating lineup of boutique trucks. They offer clothes, accessories, jewelry, and other items.
