Had a seasonal cupcake, chocolate cupcake with strawberry icing. It was a simple moist chocolate cupcake with cream cheese strawberry icing. Nothing crazy unusual, but the flavors were just delicious. Would not hesitate to eat this again the next time I'm in Austin, Thank goodness they have more than 1 location.

It's a food truck, that only serves cupcakes. The cupcakes are SO good, they've been around for years, and managed to step aside from the Great Hotel Massacre (in which all the rest of the trux were shooed away). Seriously good food.

We got the last cupcakes of the night (before 7pm!) and we're so glad we did! The cupcakes were moist and delicious and the perfect size. My husband said his traditional yellow cupcake/chocolate frosting was a bit dry and would have tasted better with a bit of milk. My chocolate/chocolate cupcake was perfect, in my opinion.

Great cupcakes, but a little expensive in my opinion. The cupcakes were moist and had just enough sugar, but $12 for 6 mini cupcakes seemed a little steep for me.

This little gem moves all around, and we caught it when it was in our local off-Austin food trailer park. We got a few cupcakes to split (I recommend the Red Velvet) and enjoyed them all! Probably not somewhere you want to stop frequently (those cupcakes are heavy) but a great treat!

You have not truly experienced Austin until you line up for a Hey Cupcake. Traditional and non traditional varieties varieties with rotating flavor of the day. Home made buttercream or cream cheese icing. Sit on a bench and people watch as you enjoy your treat. Try the yellow cake with rich chocolate icing, or the double strawberry. Peanut butter and...

We vitsited oct 21 approx 7 pm. Ordered French vanilla bean cupcake was tasty. Service ruins the experience she was very rude and acted like it was a bother to explain the varieties. We were the only one there. Not dog friendly which I asked first and she said "like no". The entitled attitude I call it

I can understand the lines for such a glorious treat! decadent dessert and quite a choice in such a compact serving. I recommend for everyone to at least try once or twice or as many times ...yumyum
