This weekend one of the biggest racing events in the world comes to Southern California in the form of the Long Beach Grand Prix.
A back lot at the 39th Annual Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach.
In an amazing transformation, the entire marina area of downtown Long Beach becomes a world-class race track with super fast straightaways and hair-pin turns.
More than one hundred thousand race fans will pack the streets to see indy cars, stock cars, and drift racers roar by, no more than a few feet from the grand stands.
And just like race cars need fuel, race fans need to fill up too. Fortunately, there will be plenty of chow on hand. Here’s a quick run-down on some of the food that’s available around the track. With food prices the way they are at events like this, plan on spending about $20 per person, per meal.

Adults can reflect on the races in Patron’s Tequila Club.
If you get to the races early (The track opens at 7 AM) consider a breakfast burrito to get your motor running.
With Tecate being one of the major sponsors of the LBGP, there will be plenty of beer to go around. I just hope you can swallow the price too!
Lemonade is a family friendly option for cooling off under the hot Southern California sun during the race.
Tacos. Burritos. Nachos. ‘Nuff said.
King Taco rises high above the competition for the LBGP.
Lemonade! Plan your budget accordingly.
BBQ is the perfect fuel for an afternoon of race watching.
Santa Maria tri-tip might go well with a beer from the Tecate booth.
Plan your budget for the grilled cheese factory.
Grilled cheese is always a crowd pleaser.
