Following a devastating fire March 14 that rendered a Buda staple temporarily out of business, Helen's Casa Alde has just completed a soft opening at its new food truck.

General Manager Remy Fallon said demand was so high Friday, Aug. 7 that customers had to wait up to an hour for their orders.

“It’s great, but it’s been stressful,” Fallon said of the soft opening this week. “We don’t want people to have to wait.”

Fallon said the official grand opening of the Helen's Casa Alde food truck, located at 569 Main St., Buda, will be Monday, Aug. 10 at 7 a.m., and hours of operation will be Mon.-Sun. 7 a.m.-3 p.m.

The former location for the brick-and-mortar restaurant at 108 N. Main St., Buda, had to close March 14 due to a fire, Fallon said, adding that this the first time Casa Alde has been open in any capacity since then.


Casa Alde is most known for its breakfast taco, the Fatty, which has sausage, egg, potato, bacon and cheese. Fallon said it was made famous back when her grandmother, Helen Alcala, first opened the establishment in 1980.

The phone number and website are not yet operational, but Fallon, who runs the food truck with her husband, Mike, said both should be up and running soon. 512-295-2053. www.helenscasaalde.com
