What started in the early ‘90s as a not-so-humble hot-dog stand has blossomed into a citywide movement. All over town, chefs are eschewing sit-down establishments and serving inexpensive, unpretentious cuisine whipped up in the back of refurbished Airstreams and concession trailers. The trend is so hot officials estimate more than 1,000 mobile food vendors are in Austin.

From tasty cupcakes at Hey Cupcake! to Chi'Lantro's taco-and-Korean barbecue, street eats occupy every niche, and there's always a new, delicious, not-too-spendy meal to discover. Food-court trailer parks are an Austin phenomenon in which multiple trailers cluster to create a dining destination. Check out these websites to find food trailers:
