Roots N Blues N BBQ Food Round Up: Five Vendors to Watch for

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Mizzou chapter.

It’s fall y’all! And Roots N Blues is finally here. So naturally, we must know what foods will be in attendance. Priorities right? The Festival runs from Sept. 30 to Oct. 2, and it’s going to be a hit this year. Save the date and come hungry! 

Of course, there will be BBQ on BBQ to choose from, along with snacks, desserts and drinks. Here’s five vendors to look out for this year to channel your inner foodie.

1.     Broadway Brewery

Broadway Brewery is coming in hot with a “whole hog pork plate.” I can only imagine the size of that feast! Come hungry people.

2.     MO Legacy Beef

With two burger options, a BBQ brisket sandwich, a sirloin steak sandwich, all beef brats and beef jerky, you meat lovers won’t want to leave this vendor.

3.     Lily’s Cantina

If BBQ isn’t your thing, check out this taco vendor! C’mon, we all love tacos. And with this variety, you’re sure to find something to munch on. Kinds of tacos include Thai chicken tacos, Pac pacific pork tacos, shrimp tacos and lobster tacos. Finish your meal off with a churro, and you basically just went to Mexico during your time at this vendor.

4.     Lee’s Express

Not a fan of BBQ or tacos? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Check out Lee’s Express to get your Chinese food fix. They’ve got crab Rangoon, egg rolls, chicken fried rice, LoMein, pad Thai and many types of chicken. Grab a Bob Tea while you’re there to keep hydrated during this food fest.

5.     Peggy Jean’s Pies

Calling all sweet tooths! After you fill up on BBQ, tacos, and Chinese, finish up with a pie from Peggy Jean. They have all kinds of pies, so don’t worry about a slim selection.

These five vendors are just a few of many that will be in attendance at the Roots N Blues festival. Check out all of the other amazing foods that will be there by clicking the link below. Happy eating!
