By  | 

Downtown Luckenbach is the Texas Hill Country legend you’ve often read about, not to mention heard of in song. It’s now famous for yet another great thing – the Hill Country Food Truck Festival, currently in its 5th year. The tiny hamlet which is home to a general store, tavern, and a dance hall will soon play host to this tasty food festival on wheels!

Scheduled for Saturday, June 23, visitors to the festival can sit a spell at the Luckenbach General Store, under the shade of centuries-old oak trees, and sample the wares of more than a dozen food trucks from throughout the Hill Country. From 12 noon until 8 p.m. (or until the cuisine is sold-out), these mobile sources of snack-bar dining will be serving something for all tastes. Options include authentic German, Mexican, and Mediterranean cuisine, pizza, Texas barbecue, and a variety of desserts to tempt the sweet tooth in all of us!
