Kate's Southern Comfort

This popular trailer near Zilker Park turns out Nak-i-dish (ground pork and beef mixed with onions and stuffed inside a puff pastry crust), red beans and rice with juicy chunks of andouille sausage, and terrific crawfish pie.

1604 E. Sixth, 512/573-5215

Lucy's Fried Chicken

The chicken is tender and juicy, the breading perfectly crisp, and it washes down well with a Juicy Lucy frozen watermelon margarita or the spicy Bee Sting. Like being at an impeccably curated picnic.

2218 College Ave., 512/297-2423
