Weekend shoppers at The Domain will soon have a larger variety of food truck options to choose from.

A pilot program launching with a May 31 event will bring at least seven food trucks to Macy's parking lot in The Domain, according to Program Operator David Poku.

Poku said he and Glenn Williams, owner of Northwest Austin restaurant The Rolling Rooster, were approached by Simon Property's management to run the food truck pilot program.

"We figured it only made sense," Poku told Community Impact Newspaper. "As popular as [The Domain] is, it should ... have food trucks as well."

The pilot program is currently running on a month-to-month basis, but food trucks will be out at the Macy's food trailer park every Friday, Saturday and Sunday beginning May 31.

Six food trucks will be at The Domain every weekend, while the seventh truck will likely switch off, Poku said.

Among the food trucks confirmed for the pilot program are Three B's Tacos, My Granny's Kitchen, SXSE Food Co., Rosarito, Aurora, Not Yo Mamas Waffles, Shawarma Point and Cutie Pies.

The weekend food trailer park, to be located at 3311 Esperanza Crossing, Austin, will be dog-friendly, and it will feature seating and shade for customers.
