    Default Favorite Coachella Food Vendors?

    It seems to me that there IS good food to be found at reasonable prices. My favorite vendor is a certain taco stand that serves great chicken soft tacos. I saw a lady get covered in salsa after squeezing the plastic bottle too hard. I think maybe a chunk of tomato was stuck in the nozzle, and she just kept squeezing it until it exploded. Anybody care to offer up some favorites?

    there was a taco stand inside the beer garden by the sahara tent that made some really good tacos for a cheap price. also there was a pizza place at the garden between the 2 outdoor stages that made some good lasagna and pizza. i dont expect great cuisine, but good decent slop and those 2 were very good for slop!

    Yes! If its the same place I'm thinking of, there was a veggie mexican food stand over by the outdoor theater that was fucking awesome. There quesadilla's and burritos kicked ass. Also some burgers and veggie burgers that were being barbeque'd over by the entrance rocked.

    They need more breakfast joints over by the tents tho! That egg and that unnatural squeezed cheese sandwiches were not cutting it..

    At Coachella, I survive on Sweet Leaf Tea and Chicken Tikka Masala. Nothing else matters.

    I wanted to be a vendor and do biscuits and gravy but: Some people might think it is a bit heavy for the desert b) I would have to sell a whole bunch to make back the vendor fees.

    I figure I could sell them for $3 and throw in a small bottle of water so that's not too bad for a cheap morning breakfast. cr****

    I really liked pie for the people (or something like that). It was a pizza joint with a pizza called "David Bowie" I think. Really good stuff. There was a burrito stand by the Outdoor stage that sold steak burritos with rice, black beans, and cheese. They were huge and only $8. Reminded me of chipotle.

    Also the garlic fries were great. My favourite was a stand over by the pie for the people -- I think they mostly sold greek food, but they just put huge chunks of garlic.

    The David Bowie Pizza was my favorite as well. The cold deli sandwich place was good, too.

    Worst was the burrito stand (there were a few) but one of them advertised a "Chicken Burrito" that was basically chicken in a tortilla. Just dry chicken. No rice, no nothin'! Just dry-ass chicken. Yuck.

    This. The chicken burrito was perfectly filling but not too heavy.

    That David Bowie pizza was delicious! I had like 5 slices of that over the weekend. They also had another pizza that had potato, spinach, and other stuff that was really good too

    Hey I figured I'd ask here but, about how much is food at the store/vendors at Coachella? Normally at concerts I don't buy jack shit because $8 for beer, $6 for water, or $8 for a single hot dog or funnel cake is just ridiculous. Normally I just eat before or after a show but....obviously going 3 days without drinking or eating probably won't turn out very well so I'd like to know whether I should just bring my own food, to munch on, or is it reasonable prices to buy stuff there

    Yes! The Philly Cheesesteak place had those, and they were beyond awesome.

    It's all about the barbecue.

    I got some garlic parmesean fries in 2006, which were tasty times, especially since they gave me ranch for dipping.
