Best Creole Food Truck in Austin: Baton Creole

May 21, 2020

If you love creole food....and food trucks, this is for you.

 

A slightly old-fashioned (which is awesome) view of Louisiana seafood with all the food offerings you would expect. The fish apps and entrees are all very good, but just way too salty for my taste. The service from the truck is top-notch, and the appetizers are very interesting and delicious. I can't blame the restaurant for the amount of salt they use because it really seems like that is what people in Texas want!

 

From what I can tell, their menu was pretty extensive, compared to a lot of other restaurants that really limited their menu during the stay at home order. Called ahead, they quoted me a pickup time, showed up, and the food was delivered on time. I went home, about 5 minutes away and was ready to chow down. The bread wasn't as good as I remember in the restaurant, a little stale, but that might just have been a one off. I got the "Chipotle", which was good but given its name I expected it to have a little more spice. My partner got the "Shrimp and Andouille Pasta", which was delectable. One highlight, as odd as it may seem, was their side salad. The flavors are robust, and everything tasted fresh.

 

This is a food truck that you take friends and family when they are visiting and want to know why everyone loves great creole food at a great price. As with anything of this caliber, you  can expect  long wait times during peak hours but once you are seated, a few menu favorites to try include The Louisiane, the shrimp and andouille pasta and the tuna  special. Any of these and several other  menu options  will  guarantee you will return to this spot.  I love Baton Creole!
