America's Coolest New Diners

Dock & Roll Diner, Austin, TX
Three twentysomethings brought the diner back to its mobile roots in Summer 2011 with the opening of this retrofitted 1957 Airstream Flying Cloud “food trailer.” They dish out globally inspired sandwiches—lobster rolls, banh mi, po’ boys—with “Po-taters” and other old-school sides out of a lot in South Austin. Expect picnic benches in lieu of counter service; the trailer is only 19 feet long. They plan to open a second location in the suburb of Lakeway in late 2012, compete with a few seats inside.
