ACL 2012: Fan Favorites

Yesterday we heard from the restaurants and chefs who are bringing their best local fare to the ACL Fest. Today, we check in with the fans for an on-the-ground look at the dishes and snacks that are keeping Austin music fans fed all weekend long.

Just one of the many vegetarian-friendly options offered at ACL:


— Vegetarian Nachos from Tim Love’s Love Shack


Why stick to just one spot? Denver-based Jean Anderson likes to mix it up by hitting not one, but two of the Festival’s hot eateries at once:


— Crunchy Chicken Cone from Mighty Cone, Truffle Fries from Second Bar + Kitchen


Can’t go wrong with a classic taco from one of Austin’s favorite foodie-destinations:


— Trailer Park Taco, Torchy’s Tacos


Locavore fans will love the offerings at these two HOPE Farmers Market spots:


— Roasted Duck Tostada from The Seedling Truck and Spinach Pakora from Lamba’s Royal Indian Food


“The options here are awesome. This is all of the food that I would eat anyway. Plus, Austin’s food scene is great – apart from having a Top Chef winner, this is a city where people actually wait in line for a food trailer and go out to restaurants and try new things.” — Sean Vincent, ACL Fan
