Budget-Minded Gourmets: University of Texas Austin

As one of the best up-and-coming food cities in the country, Austin is an incredible setting for food-obsessed students on a budget. Torchy’s Tacos is a local favorite, offering a wide range of creative and seriously filling tacos like “The Wrangler,” a breakfast-only order packed with scrambled eggs, potatoes, cheese and smoked beef brisket. Among the most popular food trucks, Coreanos sells Korean barbecue-style burritos, and appealing to co-ed humor, the Love Balls bus hawks hot, crispy Japanese takoyaki, batter-dipped bits of octopus fried into balls via a special pan.
