So well do you eat a con and how would you rate your local con's food options? Just the chains or are there trendy places you went with outsiders wondering what the hell is going on.
food at nearly every con is severely overpriced. good cons will give you a wristband or something so you can come back in. Just leave, go to maccas and return.
The nachos at AX are pretty good
I try to bring outside food if I can, otherwise you end up in line for 45 minutes to pay outrageous prices for shitty food. Some cons have a better food situation than others but you can't go wrong with a sandwich.
I always hit up a nearby store and buy pre packaged salads and sandwiches, fresh fruit, a bin of croissants, sometimes some instant cook noodles or mashed potatoes (you can use hot water from the coffee maker for these), a couple frozen dinners. It's kinda lame being the one who ducks out of going out to eat to go back to the hotel and microwave a pot pie, but I spend about $50 for good food the whole weekend, have plenty to share with my friends, and can keep track of my calories a lot easier since I'm a fattychan trying to become healthier.
When i attended SDCC, i brought like 2 paperbags of Chik Fil A and Smart Water inside

A Few weeks ago in WC Anaheim they had like 20 local food trucks lined up near the entrance

I dont buy food from inside the con because its the worst kind of greasy, salty and HFCS charged fast food
For specific cons in Texas I have had an okay time with food. I am a little older now so I can valet my car and drive to things in the area if needed.
If you have that option Akon and Afest have had really good options.
A-fest is connected to a huge food court which is great.
This year they are near Deep Ellum so there will be good options if you want more "hip" options. I haven't looked into cheap or fast food in the area.

Other than that I usually just go and stock up before hand so I can splurge on one nice meal a day and have food in the room like everyone else is saying.
