Hand Helds Gourmet Sliders are Anything but Bite-Sized

Austin has more than its fair share of delicious burger joints, and Hand Helds food truck is no exception, offering up sliders that are gourmet, hand-crafted and family friendly.

Difficult to choose with so many unique menu items, but sliders make it easy to build a sampler!

What I love about sliders is that you can sample multiple flavors without being a total pig. Speaking of pigs, we were immediately drawn to the Bay of Pigs - a pecan-smoked pulled pork slider with homemade pineapple cole slaw, house pickles and fresh honey mustard dressing. This combination of flavors made for a slider that was anything but average. 

The Early Burg and the Bay of Pigs

My second choice was the Early Burg, a more classic, juicy burger patty made unique with a dusting of ground coffee, an over easy egg, and a topping of homemade bacon jelly. I loved the interesting take on a breakfast burger.

Feeling especially sinful? The Backyard is a whopper of a slider made with slow smoked brisket and topped with a hunk of fried mac and cheese and potato salad, pickles and bbq sauce. Who needs sides when everything comes on your slider?

The Backyard and the Ol' Faithful

If you're looking for a more classic burger, go with the Ol' Faithful. At just $4.50, you'll enjoy a burger with melted cheddar, lettuce, tomato and homemade pickles.

Check Hand Helds' website for upcoming locations

You'll want to be sure to check the website since they are a traveling food truck. You can find them at breweries like Thirsty Planet and Last Stand, neighorhood parties, and various office parks throughout Austin. Their website does a great job of outlining their upcoming locations.
