There are plenty of shaved ice locations in Austin but I really like the homemade syrups and variety of flavors here. I love the passion fruit flavor - try it with pineapple, mango or strawberry. The line gets long and it's not shaded at ALL so be prepared to sweat for your sweet.

This is a food trailer in the South Congress Trailer Park - always open on weekends in the summer and a few days/nights at times when it's really hot. They really do have about a Kabillion flavors, including a doggy snowcone to cool your pup down as well. Tons of fun flavor names that kids will like taking their pick... More

On a recent trip to Texas to visit my son we were sight-seeing in downtown Austin (temperatures reached 110 degrees that day). To say the least, it was hot & a refreshing treat was most needed.

Description
This is not an actual dine-in restaurant but rather a "shaved-ice" stand that is a mobile trailer. It provides seating in front of the stand with picnic benches covered with large patio umbrellas (a great break from the heat since Austin is known for temps over 100 degrees). This stand had a extensive menu of flavors to choose from including one for pet-owners (bacon flavored for dogs). The price is reasonable (they do accept credit cards) & the staff was friendly. Parking is located in a free public parking lot just behind the stand. Please add this location to your site.
