There was a time when you’d go to music festivals or concerts and have limited options for dining. Maybe a slice of pizza from an anonymous chain here, a dry burger or hot dog there. Times have changed.

The Austin City Limits Music Festival and producer C3 Presents have long been in the business of bringing great local flavor to food courts. The theme started small at ACL years ago with Mighty Cone and has blossomed into a wonderland of local eats. With gates opening at 11 a.m. and the festival running until 10 p.m., there’s a possibility you’ll want (late) breakfast, lunch and dinner all at Zilker Park. And the festival has you covered.

Below are my 10 top picks for dining (and drinking) at ACL Fest, with the full ACL Eats menu listed below. Keep in mind offerings might change based on availability. Food vendors accept cash, credit cards and the ACL Cashless Payments method.

Mighty Cone’s Hot & Crunchy Avocado Cone ($12). You have to pay tribute to the O.G. And, while it’s not light, the avocado version has the broadest appeal. Zipped with a spicy sauce, this seeded, crunchy-fried, oblong handheld has probably been to more ACL Fests than you.

Torchy’s Tacos Green Chili Queso and Chips ($9). One of the best bowls of queso in Austin, this piquant, creamy dish is good for sharing with your homies.

Bananarchy’s S'more Banana ($6 for half, $9 for whole). The clever dessert stand is serving a variety of frozen sweet treats, including a chocolate-dipped nanner with graham and marshmallow creme.

Burro Grilled Cheese’s Waylon & Willie ($9). Maybe the best sandwich in Zilker Park for the weekend, this musically named oozer has cheddar and Jack cheeses, along with pepperoncinis, caramelized onions and spicy maple bacon sauce. Get extra napkins.

Dean’s One Trick Pony’s Pony Boy ($9). If you haven’t stopped by the tiki burger bar at the Line hotel, here’s your chance. The burger served on a Hawaiian bun is awash in queso, so get extra napkins.

East Side King’s Brussels Sprouts Salad ($9). Vegetarians will be pleased with this Brussels sprouts salad that launched a thousand Austin imitators with its sweet chili sauce, jalapeno and herbs.

JuiceLand’s Cucumber Mint Agua Fresca ($7). Look, I’m no weather man, but it’s probably going to be warm. There’s nothing more refreshing at Zilker Park than an agua fresca made with cucumber, kale and mint. And, unlike most things in the park, it’s actually pretty good for you. This stand will probably also provide the vibiest service experience.

Lonesome Dove Western Bistro’s Grilled Beef Hot Dog ($7). Hand capacity is at a premium at events like this, so having a meal you can crush with just one fist is clutch. Chef Tim Love’s stand will top your dog with pineapple salsa or kimchi.

Micklethwait Craft Meat’s Pulled Pork Mac-N-Cheese ($12). There’s a chance you’re going to need something to soak up some alcohol, luckily, one of the city’s best barbecue operations is there for you.

Scholz Garten’s Chili Cheese Waffle Fries ($9). One of the best dishes for sharing that you’ll find at the festival. Sturdy, alcohol-absorbing and filling, these fries should fortify you for hours.
