April 26, 2024 3:08 pm Published by

Your taste buds are in for a rollercoaster of flavors from the eclectic array of fun foods at the Chestnut Grove Food Truck Court! Nestled in downtown Bastrop, it’s not just a place to eat—it’s an oasis of new culinary discoveries and fun events. From seafood to crepes, smoked meats to East African delights, everyone will find a meal to bring smiles to their faces. 


You can eat and socialize comfortably in this food truck court at a picnic table under the open-sided roof. The designers thought of everything—there are fans with water mists to keep you cool in the heat and string lights for illumination at night. You will have everything you need for a good meal out—large restrooms, water fountains, and a dog watering station for fur babies.


There’s plenty to love about the delicious eats in this food court, and everyone is sure to find something to satisfy their cravings. You can’t have a legit Texas food court without barbecue, and Smoked Love serves unique dishes like stuffed meatloaf and smoked jalapenos stuffed with cheese and pork sausage, wrapped in bacon, and topped with a homemade sauce. The menu rotates, but they generally serve beef, pork, chicken, seafood, veggies, and fruits.

Have you tried Ethiopian and Eritrean cuisine? If you have, you know how flavorful it is, and if you haven’t, here’s your chance. The Abyssinia Cafe food truck serves authentic East African dishes, salads, and fresh Kitfo Dulet, a unique delight of lamb, spices, and serranos. They also have pasta and grilled cheese sandwiches on homemade bread for picky eaters.

If you’re in the mood for seafood, head to BayBay’z for shrimp, crabs, lobster, calamari, and fish. You can get yours fried, boiled, or sauteed, or try some of each with a family-size tray. They also have tasty sides like a crab cluster and hush puppies.

You can also satisfy your sweet tooth at Abelitos Crepe Cafe and Cutie Pies. Choose a crepe combo from Abelitos’ menu or create your own sweet or savory fillings. And who doesn’t like pie? It’s the perfect end to any meal, and the Cutie Pie Wagon has award-winning slices by a two-time national pie champion. You can choose buttermilk, Heath toffee pecan, peachy key lime habanero, and brownie flavors, or get a chicken pot pie, quiche, or banana pudding. Plus, each morning to late afternoon, grab a fresh brew from Sunshine Sister Coffee to go with your treats.
