Best Gas Station Parking Lot Food: Abo Youssef Mediterranean Food

The bright yellow and red of the Manor Express convenience store may not have the same allure as the tasteful beiges and whites of trendy dining rooms, but that doesn't seem to matter one bit to the folks lining up for Abo Youssef's shawarma and falafel. With an attention to customer care, killer baklava, and a mint lemonade perfect for Austin weather, Abo Youssef proves that our food truck scene is just as essential as ever.
