    Default Best places to eat?

    I'm going to weekend 2 and was wondering if anyone from weekend 1 had any suggestions on which venues had the best food/value. When I went last year I think I pretty much just stuck to that pizza place mostly due to the fact that a pizza is hard to fuck up and it's pretty filling.

    The Taco cart behind the beer garden by the Ferris Wheel was so good I went back to back days. It's between Pinks and the NY Pizza place. Your choice of Charizo Pork, Green Chili Chicken, or Cactus Salad. Be sure to get Cactus Salad on top of the tacos for an extra buck.

    Lime Truck in the same beer garden. Sweet and spicy steak sliders. That is all. These guys won a food truck competitiOn on food network, it was obvious why.

    Silvio's Brazilian BBQ had some of the best Tri-tip steak I had in years! Hit up that place 4 times during my stay!

    Yeah thats my general concern with getting food, it might be good but my wallet will be empty before my stomach is full.
    Who had the biggest servings for the price?

    Another vote for the $5 Taiwanese fried chicken bao. Damn good.

    Indian food by the Yuma tent. Still expensive, it is Coachella. Get the combo platter for$11 and you should be pretty full and even have some left to share.

    The burritos in the campground are pretty large and filling as well.

    the paella by the outdoor stage was amazing, and so was the border grill truck in vip (they also had a stand on the terrace).

    id avoid any of the food between outdoor stage and gobi tent

    ordered a carne asada burrito and before i could grab my wallet it was already on the counter in front of me

    of course it was cold as fuck too

    however ALL the food i had by the yuma tent was great! more expensive but worth it

    There was a food truck in the beer garden by the ferris wheel. They had all organic food. They made one amazing chipotle cheddar burger and sweet potatoe fries.

    The burrito stand over by the recycle booth. Cali Steak Burrito was rather tasty.

    Best food I had all weekend was the tuna taco from The Lime Truck. Beer Garden to side of main stage.
    Also the coffee from the coffee stand in the main VIP area was very good.

    There was a 2nd Lime Truck inside VIP which specialized in french fries and they sucked.

    Ditto on the paella by the outdoor stage, it was delicious. Spicy Pie is always great, there's one in that same area too. The Asian food there was gross and dry.
