Tasty Ticket Card, powered by Magic Money

The key to happiness at The Texas Food Truck Showdown is Tasty Tickets. This year, we’re introducing digital Tasty Tickets powered by Magic Money!

To get food from ANY of the trucks at The Texas Food Truck Showdown you’ll need to purchase and load Tasty Ticket credits onto your Tasty Ticket card. During the competition, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., trucks only accept Tasty Ticket credits for food. Tasty Ticket cards must be purchased at the Magic Money kiosks located all around the event grounds, and credits can be purchased and loaded at either a reload kiosk or via the Magic Money app. You will be charged a $2 transaction fee the first time you purchase your card, but will be able to reload it for free. Once you have Tasty Ticket credits, you are free to use them at any truck you want!

One Tasty Ticket credit costs $5 and buy you one 4-ounce signature dish.

*Please Note*: Tasty Ticket cards and credits will not be sold after 3 p.m. and they become invalid after 4 p.m.; no refunds for unused credits. The food trucks will open their full menu at 4 p.m. for cash/card purchases.

Tasty Tickets allow the trucks to focus solely on creating and serving their signature dish for you to eat instead of processing payments via card or cash. This will help the lines move faster allowing you to try more trucks!

Bottled water and soda will also be available for purchase directly from the drink trailer with cash or card (drinks cannot be purchased from food truck vendors). NO tasty tickets will be taken for drinks.
