AUSTIN, TX – Stars of A&E reality television show Duck Dynasty Jep and Jessica Robertson are opening their own food truck in Austin. Jep’s Southern Roots will be found on the grounds of Family Business Beer Co., which happens to be run by the couple’s friends, actors Jensen and Danneel Ackles. Both open next week on Wednesday, January 10 in Dripping Springs.
Jep’s Southern Roots focuses on cuisine that Jep knows best since they grew up in Louisiana: Southern and Cajun comfort food. Jep often cooked with his family, and he always desired his own restaurant. “I wanted to take recipes I grew up with, but put a little more modern take on it,” he said.
Take the Cajun bruschetta. It consists of toasted French bread sourced from New Orleans bakery Gambino’s, which is topped with jambalaya, and then topped again with etouffee and blackened shrimp.
The rest of the food truck’s menu includes classic dishes, like jambalaya, po’ boys, gumbo, muffulettas.
