Cody Duggan started out with a breakfast taco delivery service, selling brisket tacos across Austin, TX. The flawlessly low ‘n slow smoked beef—dripping with juice and popping with natural flavor—attracted popularity rapid fire across the Lone Star State. It wasn’t long before Duggan found himself getting booked for catering jobs. Encouraged by the success, he decided to up the ante with his very own food truck. Now, you’ll find him in The Naughty Texan, slinging the brisket that made him famous and a bounty of other drool-worthy Tex-Mex eats.
You gotta try that brisket if you stop by, whether you nab the classic tacos or get ‘em in a slider or sandwich. But why stop at brisket? Duggan also makes equally tantalizing pork, sure to satisfy when served up between a buttery bun or over a bed of crisp, fresh nachos. When complemented with other full-flavored ingredients like pico de gallo, onions, and BBQ sauce, these meats are more than satisfying. And best of all, you can bring all this goodness straight to you by booking The Naughty Texan to cater your next event.
The Naughty Bowl — How do you make mac ‘n cheese better? Toss in some brisket for an extra blast of smoky, savory flavor, of course.
I polled friends and that’s what we came up with. Just trying to think of the best way to be catchy with something that’s not too outlandish.
I grew up eating. Growing up, we learned a little bit about cooking. How long, the temperature, and all that stuff. The fine details, my dad taught me around 2015.
I wanted to have my future in my own hands. I didn’t want to be dependent on a company. I’ve just seen a lot of bad stuff over the last few years.
My family supported my decision to start the business. My folks let me use them as a cosigner so I could get the loan I needed, which was a big deal.
I love doing events at Circuit of the Americas here in Austin. I generally do MotoGP race in April and the F1 race in October and November.
My best seller and favorite is the Naughty Mac Bowl. It is homemade mac and cheese topped with Brisket or smoked pork – guaranteed to fill you up.
