Who's eaten at a Snappy Snack truck?

How was the food?

Read about the controversy here:

Is Snappy Snacks behind a potential ordinance forbidding carts selling breakfast tacos before NOON?

If so can we all pool our money and fly Stan Hansen [] in to deal with this Ramsey character before he makes it impossible to buy an al pastor taco in Austin?

Tom Ramsey owns 70 some odd food trucks. Why is he muscling down on food cart entrepreneurs who've scraped together enough money to get their one cart out on the street to feed the people?

Is Tom Ramsey sore about the city requiring him to build a retention pond and install grease traps at his 7 acre complex within the cities jurisdiction?

It reportedly cost a million dollars [ ].

Tom Ramsey went in front of the city council with 42 new rules and regulations he'd dreamed up to limit his potential competitors ability to prepare food for the eaters of Austin, Texas.

His wish list was pared down to 10 new regulations for his competition.
