This is the best banh mi in town for both taste and price. There are three main proteins: chicken, pork, and tofu (lemon grass only) and three styles: grilled, bbq, lemon grass. All are incredible on either a bowl, in a sandwich, or as a summer roll. The owner goes to the market each morning, so everything is super fresh and made to order daily. All sauces are homemade as well and authentic. There's plenty of parking and seating under the shade of a giant tree--two things that can be nuisances with food trailers. You can also call your order in to have ready for pick up if you're more on a time crunch. And don't forget to try a Vietnamese iced coffee with your meal! They're nice and strong but not overly sweetened like some places.

The Banh Mi sandwich that changed my mind on Banh Mi sandwiches! Banh Mi sandwich is known for the french baguette style bread, which is either too crunchy and hard to eat without getting crumbs everywhere or too thick where you can barely put your mouth around to enjoy one delicious bite. Lulu B's bread is neither and still has the deliciousness of Banh Mi French Vietnamese goodness. Try it on a cool summer day at lunch!

The first times the food was amazing, the last 2 times, the food was too hot, although I ordered the same dish. Overall the food is good, but its hit or miss. If you are close it worth it, otherwise I wouldn't drive out of my way.

This trailer sits under a large tree where you can eat in the shade while watching South Lamar roll by. Service was snappy and they had what I ordered. It is cash only, which is pretty much what you expect when you go to a food trailer. However, I've come to find that the success of a banh mi (or po' boy) sandwich pretty much hinges on one thing: the bread. Unfortunately, the bread seemed like generic foodservice "French bread." They pulled it out of a fridge. While the sandwich wasn't inedible, the filling was also underwhelming. I wouldn't go out of my way for this one.

Initially I was convinced that a 4 was generous, but with banh mi in South Austin you often have to grade on a curve, and they really are a good place that deserves a look. The banh mi are decently sized, tasty, and $6 cash (no cards). In an area with more banh mi places, like, say, Houston, they'd be able to charge $4.50 at most, but for this part of South Austin this is a fair enough price. Their regular menu has pork and chicken banh mi in a few different varieties each (grilled, lemongrass, Chinese BBQ), plus tofu for vegetarians, and they'll have specials from time to time. I haven't tried any of their vermicelli bowls or rolls, but their smoothies are great. In a perfect world, they would do the following: - have beef - offer a fried egg option - be $5 There are in fact South Austin places that do all of those things, like Pho Oanh. However, the sandwiches are pretty good, and based on the fact that I keep coming here, they're obviously doing something right. A 4 it is.

The best banh mi in town! And they have a delicious peanut sauce that goes so well with it.

Freshest food in Austin! This is my favorite place. Even if you are not veggie-the tofu is ridiculously good, and you must try it. The summer rolls are super fresh. Its simply the best. I have been coming here for a couple of years, and it never disappoints. Its simple. Very nice people, fresh food, and great tea.

Lulu B's is a good spot for banh mi down south. It definitely doesn't taste as authentic as other places I've been up north, but it's consistently tasty and fresh. It's a bit pricey as far as banh mi goes, but the sandwiches are also a little bigger than others. Not a huge fan of the vermicelli bowls either. Personal favorite: lemongrass pork.
