Bud's Po-Boys

TroyTempest | Sep 6, 201110:25 AM

Was driving down Burnet road the other day, and saw a sign for this place. I remembered it from a review (or maybe just an announcement) in the Statesman. This is a trailer in the back of the Travis Connty Farmer's market on Burnet.
I didn't want to eat a whole lot, so i only had a half shrimp Po-Boy with some Zappp's potato chips. The Po-boy came with perfectly fried shrimp. about medium size, crispy, but not overcooked. The french bread it was served on was very good as well, with just enough crust, but not so crusty as to be difficult to bite. The kind i like on a perfect Bahn Mi. I didn't specify tartar or or red sauce, so it came with both on the side. It was served with lettuce, red onion, and what tasted like a homegrown slice of tomato. they also had catfish, crawfish and roast beef po-boys. The roast beef Po-boys are the kind served with gravy (supposedly authentic) that people seem to want. I've yet to try this anywhere, so i really can't comment, but i think that's what i'm going to try next time.
The theme of the place was definitely Louisiana with red beans and rice, muffaletas, gumbo and etoufee also being on the menu.
So, for a relatively inexpensive seafood po-boy, i'd rate this as good or better than any i've had in town.
Food places never seem to last long in this location, so hopefully this one will.
