Lollapalooza unveils Chow Town lineup

Eat everything from mac 'n' cheese hot dogs to prosciutto sandwiches while you watch Lorde and Skrillex

The bacon mac 'n' cheese dog ($9) from Franks N Dawgs was one of our favorite things we ate at Lollapalooza's Chow Town.

Lollapalooza has released the full list of restaurants that will be dishing up food at the music festival August 1–3. Celeb chef and curator Graham Elliot roped in 45 different eateries from the city (and surrounding area) with hopes to equally satisfy the cravings of the college kid with the munchies and the foodie. 

There have been a few changes to this year's cast of cuisines, and for all the talk of lobster corndogs, the fare is now largely burgers, pizza, tacos, hot dogs. Our biggest disappointment is the disappearance of Hummingbird Kitchen's "Smotherload" waffle fries. We loved that this dish was able to be eaten on the go—a must at a music festival.

Fortunately, a few restaurants that impressed us at Lolla '13 will be gracing the streets of Grant Park once again (be sure to wander off of Columbus to the quieter Farmers Market area). Franks 'N' Dawgs, Puffs of Doom and Gale's Root Beer were on our list of favorites last year. This year we aim to hit Edzo's, La Colombe Coffee Roasters and newcomers Stella Barra and Jeni's. Oh man, Jeni's. They are cranking out some of our favorite ice creams of the summer.
