Jep Robertson has fled the coop. The “Duck Dynasty” star and his wife, Jessica, have moved to Austin and are opening a food truck today at “Supernatural” star Jensen Ackles’ Family Business Beer Co. in Dripping Springs.
The food trailer, Jep’s Southern Roots, is true to its name, with a menu that includes homemade meat pies, boudin balls, Cajun bruschetta, shrimp etouffee, jambalaya, po-boys and more. The couple originally launched their food truck as a pot pie specialty business in their hometown of Monroe, Louisiana, as documented in episode 11 of the the second season of their own A&E reality show, “Jep & Jessica: Growing the Dynasty.”
The food truck is initially open the same hours as the brewery: 3 to 10 p.m. Wednesday-Friday, 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday and 11 am. to 9 p.m. Sunday.

- Jep Robertson got caught in the periphery of the “Duck Dynasty” scandal of 2013 when he told GQ that he was definitely “in line” with his father, Phil, who told the magazine, “Neither the adulterers, the idolaters, the male prostitutes, the homosexual offenders, the greedy, the drunkards, the slanderers, the swindlers—they won’t inherit the kingdom of God.” The elder Robertson later slightly recanted his statement.
