Ten bucks gets you four small fried shrimp and LOTS of coleslaw in a tortilla, half of which is soggy by the time you work you way down. Adding the fried avocado gets you 1/4 of one deep fried. One was great, another, the avocado...More

We were on our way to go swimming and stopped by for a quick bite and probably had the best burger I had on my entire trip. It was awesome, almost went back for a second one. They are not the biggest burgers, but man,...More

The shrimp is especially good! This place has an excellent reputation and they deserve it. The batter is light and the spices are just right! Expect a line because it is that good.

I saw a TV show featuring Mighty Cone and had to go. It's good. But once you are there, there are other food trucks from which to get things to eat. They're good, too. Don't just pick one, just go from one to the other...More

Wow what a disappointment. Since Hudson on the bend abruptly closed, the mighty come opened up in the parking lot. They have one dilapidated picnic table and a very impressive expensive food truck however it is quite obvious expensive food truck does not translate into...More

Novelty meets delicious! Great food truck trailer experience. I had the monster with fried avocado, shrimp and chicken wrapped in a tortilla placed in a cone. Nice portion but not huge. The chili dusted fries tasted great. Highly recommended.

I ordered the cone with chicken and avocado and it was amazing. Also presented in a neat way since it's in a snow cone holder. A bit messy though so I would not recommend for a first date ;)

We were at the trail of lights and saw this amazing food truck. My husband has a BBQ trailer and we stopped to talk and possibly get food. The worker up front refused to talk to us, just stood there. When my husband went to...More

Description
In 2002, the Austin City Limits Music Festival contacted Hudson's owner Chef Jeff Blank to help them spearhead their efforts to entice local restaurants to join the festival's food court. Their goal was to create festival food that would emulate the unique heritage of Austin cuisine. The result is The Mighty Cone - the official food of live music.

We serve "Hot & Crunchy" tacos and sides in an easy to devour format. Loved by thousands of festival goers.
