Food Trailers

Food trailers … a new normal for Marble Falls? Austin has been full of them but now, out here in the Highland Lakes, we have a lot of trailers in “food courts.” The ones depicted here all have good food. How do I know? I’ve tried them all.

There is a long and colorful history to mobile food vending. Witness the chuckwagon show in this gallery.

The Complete History of American Food Trucks is replete with examples and photos. When I was a student at UT we had the Bevo Wagon that brought precious pizza and other culiniary delights around about 10pm each week night, just in time to justify a study break — assuming that was the current activity. 

Lee’s Diner, housed in the silver trailer, was the first in Marble Falls and broke the ice for others to come. It was written up in the DailyTrib in 2014 shortly after it opened.

A bare patch of land at one of the busiest corners in Marble Falls, a hungry electrician wrapping up his work and a question all came together in such a way that Lee’s Diner became the town’s first food-trailer restaurant.
