SoCo To Go
An old blue trailer has been parked on First Street for days. Instead of arousing suspicion, the aromas of frying pickles, chicken, and smoked beef alert passersby that this trailer is not the site of some crime investigation scene, but rather a place where chefs create delicious comfort fare for the masses. SoCo To Go's kitchen, located inside the trailer, draws inspiration from the people, scenery, and traditions of Austin. Eatery staff, headed by owner Sam Rhodes, pays homage to downright good food with chicken fried chicken, tilapia tacos, and tortilla and chili bowls. After picking up dishes at the trailer's side window, guests can sprawl out at garden picnic tables, where red umbrellas shelter from the sun and hungry skydivers. This same seating area transforms at night into a glowing hangout with holiday lights wrapped around trees and strung above the tables. SoCo To Go's deliverers can bring fare to various locations throughout the city, under the banner of the eatery's confidently smiling mascot, Daisy Mae.
