Austin Rodeo

Hello all. I'm Boston area chef traveling to Austin with my SO and her family. Part of our agenda is to attend the Austin Rodeo as her godfather is involved. Long story short, I' m a city kid and have never been to a Rodeo. Is there any food worth eating there or is it simply carnival type fair. Hoping that maybe one of your well know food carts might be setting up shop there. Thanks so much for any help.

  1. Moderately bad news - nobody but carnival vendors at the Rodeo. Still, an enormous smoked turkey leg, a funnel cake, and an eighty-degree March weekend is a decent respite for any Yankee...

    (Seriously, welcome to Austin - plenty of worthy chow elsewhere around town, we promise!)

      Thanks so much. I was worried about that. There have been suggestions that we eat dinner there. Hoping that I can convince everyone to stop by Odd Duck or 3 little pigs beforehand. Don't really know the lay of the land. Is there anywhere nearby that is delicious to eat prior to going to the rodeo.
