Austin Texas likely has the record number of food trucks in the country. In 2012 there were 1400 registered mobile food vendors in Travis County alone. While many Texas cities consider food trucks a nuisance or even a health hazard Austin residents have embraced the entire concept. These portable food stands serve everything from burgers and tacos to gourmet fare and ice cream. Many food trailers stay in one location while others travel the city and make scheduled spots in certain locations.
