Is Austin better known for delicious food or it’s live music?  Personally we’re more partial to food, but we don’t want to start a fight!  The Austin City Limits Music Festival 2013 is here, not only with an amazing line-up of talented musicians, but the most impressive list of food vendors of any music festival in history.

While rocking out at Zilker Park, your appetite may suddenly strike you for a taste of Austin’s finest food.  You won’t find any large turkey legs from a classic festival.  If you’re looking for more than just a bag of popcorn and cotten candy, visit the list of vendors below for a little bit of culinary goodness and get back to dancing when you’re not too full.
