The Best Food We Gorged on at Lollapalooza 2017
Another year, another Lollapalooza come and gone. After rocking out to all the kick-ass ladies on the lineup and scouring the grounds for the best fest-wear around, we were more than ready to gain our strength with a little sustenance. Luckily, the fest boasted more than 30 food vendors on its grounds, and every last one had something delicious up for grabs. Click through to see all that caught our eyes and made our tummies rumble!
Graham Elliot Lobster Corndog: No Lolla food vendor got more Insta love than Graham Elliot (yes, the same one from Master Chef), who gave foodies a fresh take on the corndog by adding a little gourmet lobster to the mix. (Photo via Kevin Cherello)
Tallboy Taco: Fest-goers were able to stretch Taco Tuesday out all weekend long thanks to Tallboy Taco, who was serving up goodness that included chicken tacos, chips, and guacamole. (Photo via @tallboytaco )
Cheesie’s Pub & Grub The Mac: Who wants a plain old grilled cheese when you can get one that’s filled with our other homemade fave, mac and cheese? Served with a blend of melted American and Mertkt’s cheddar, this proved to be well worth the wait its perpetually uber-long line induced. (Photo via Nicole Briese)
Cheesie’s Pub & Grub Loaded Tots: Even tater tots get an upgrade at fest-fave Cheesie’s, who loaded bacon bits and cheese on top of their deep-fried potato delights. (Photo via Kevin Cherello)
Goddess and Grocer: For those with dietary restrictions, Goddess and Grocer was a Godsend, offering up some scrumptious macaroni, a Thai chicken wrap, a Thai tofu wrap with peanut sauce, or crispy sriracha fries. Yum! (Photo via Goddess and Grocer /Facebook)
Original Rainbow Cone: Colorful and tasty to boot, this sweet treat not only helped fest-goers to cool off on particularly hot days, but it packed five flavors into one with its unique blend of chocolate, pistachio, strawberry, Palmer House, and orange sherbet. (Photo via Original Rainbow Cone )
Kuma’s Corner the Wasp Burger: Considering that rock and roll and Kuma’s Corner go hand in hand, as anyone who’s ever visited the local establishment knows, it was the perfect place to serve up fest creations such as The Wasp (burger, cheddar, and bacon) or Pig Destroyer (BBQ pulled pork sandwich).

Country BBQ Brisket Nachos: These brisket-and-cheese nachos boasted plenty of jalapeños to give tastebud seekers an added *thrill.* What’s more, they served as a nice little tide-over for fans of the restaurant, which will soon be reopening after a building fire forced them to close.

Pork & Mindy’s Pig Candy: If you think this strip of meat is simply a piece of bacon, think again: This bad boy, known to locals as "pig candy," is sprinkled with brown sugar before being slow smoked to perfection. Sigh. (Photo via @smorgisbord )
Sausage Haus Harvati Mac & Cheese: Fest attendee @alili29 proclaimed this Harvati mac and cheese from Sausage Haus her favorite meal of the weekend, and we can’t say we blame her: With corn, sprigs of green, and plenty of Parm thrown in, it looked a delight indeed! (Photo via @alili29 )
