The Top Dozen Things to Grub on at Outside Lands

Meat, cheese, and rock 'n' roll.

 Burger and fries from 4505 Burgers and BBQ.


At Outside Lands, the food is as much of a headliner as the music. When the hordes of music fans convene in Golden Gate Park for Outside Lands on August 8–10, chances are that many of them will head not for the stage but for the food. And with good reason: This year’s lineup is a veritable all-star smorgasbord of local comestibles. Here's a dozen of our favorite festival grubs:

1. 4505’s grass fed beef cheeseburger.

2. Homeroom’s Gilroy garlic mac ’n’ cheese.

3. Rosamunde’s sausages, 

4. Wise Sons pastrami cheese fries.

5. Highbrow sloppy joes from AQ.

6. Fried egg sandwich and griddled french toast from Il Cane Rosso

7. Dried procini doughnuts from Rich Table

8. Bacon Bacon's decidedly non-Kosher porky fries

9. Steamed tofu bao from The Chairman Truck

10.  Living Greens Juice

11. Liquid fuel from Blue Bottle

12. Edibles.
