Best Slow Food / Fast Food Hybrid

The Flying Carpet

This former South Austin "Moroccan burger" trailer now has a beautifully decorated brick-and-mortar on Oltorf so lovers of their Big Abdu can eat in true Moroccan style. Along with the new look is an expanded special-order menu of halal tajines (stews) that must be reserved 24 hours in advance. Though they spurn the "fast food" label, the burgers still come out pretty damn quick, and every one is worth a much longer wait.
