Churro Co.

Churro Co. serves unique churros. Churro Co. is Food truck located at 1620 E. Riverside Drive. Churro Co. specializes in churros, the Mexican crispy fried dessert treat covered in brown sugar and cinnamon. It offers almost every kind imaginable ranging from the traditional to the outrageous with lots of toppings and flavors.

If you want to go the traditional way, you can get a regular churro for $3 plus 50 cents if you want to add a dipping sauce. If you want to taste the best of the best,

they’re going to cost you $4.50 For just one dollar more who wouldn’t to upgrade? e best churro in my opinion is the “Camp Fire.” is churro is topped with graham sugar, toasted marshmallow, Mexican chocolate sauce, and whipped cream.

But there’s still al ot of other options and combinations. For example the “Date Night” churro is the perfect dessert to share with that special someone in your life. It is churro is topped with popcorn sugar, Salted caramel, and a scoop of delicious Amy’s vanilla ice cream. Another good dessert is the Texas Comfort.

This churro is topped with cardamom sugar, apple pie filling, caramel sauce, and whipped cream. There’s plenty more types of churros. It’s nearly impossible to leave this churro truck with out being satisfied.

This is a place in Austin that everyone should visit. they’re really fast on getting your order too. Churro Co. is  a must-try, believe me. I don’t always eat churros, but when I do, I prefer Churro Co.

BBQ Burger is another good option.

is burger is made from a House-made soy free and gluten free patty, grilled in BBQ suace, chipotle mayo, tomatoes, onions, pickles, and lettuce. is is burger is really good also. And if you want add their “special sauce.”

they’re special sauce is truly a especial sauce. the flavor that it adds

to the burger makes it one-hundred times better than without the sauce. they also have a house made lemonade which is really good, they’re also going to come out with a new “vegan” dish, which supposedly is going to be their best dish to date.

Arlo’s has definitely changed the vegan game. For all you vegans out there, this is the spot for you. e people are really friendly; they make you feel like family. And if you’re really nice to them, they might hook you up with an extra side of fries or tots.
