In a city of great restaurants, make sure you try and stop by the food trucks on South Congress Avenue for at least one meal. The Mighty Cone and a group of about eight other food trucks are located next to the South Congress Baptist Church about ten minutes south of downtown Austin.
We tried several of the food trucks but the Mighty Cone was the best and the busiest the day we were there. As the name suggests, the Mighty Cone serves all of their food out of a paper cone. The menu is limited but very unique including a chicken cone, an avocado cone, and a shrimp cone. The dishes inside the cones have a kind of spicy and nutty flavor to them since they include chili flakes and almonds in the breading. If you feel like dessert, don't miss the brownie cone, which is a brownie and vanilla ice cream served in a paper cone.
There is seating outside the food trucks on some basic picnic tables. Parking can be a challenge on South Congress Street and not just because there aren't a lot of spaces. People literally back into the spaces on South Congree Street and face out, which is kind of weird. We opted to turn down a side street and were able to find a spot.
