The Best Eats

Normally, I'll grab a bite before I head to a sporting event — mainly because snack bars at high school games tend to be a little overpriced.

If I were a parent, I wouldn't mind parting with $5s for a bag of Skittles and a slice of cold pizza. The money all goes back to girls soccer uniforms and other worthy causes.

But I'm not even married.

Still, every once in a while, I'll sample the high school cuisine if something piques my interest. And the best item I've had on the Central Coast comes from Atascadero.

The booster burritos at the gymnasium are spectacular. Picture a big flour tortilla wrapped around a heaping portion of beans, rice and your choice of meat, plus chips and salsa. They came heartily recommended and I gleefully wolfed my first one down Tuesday.

I took that $5 and lived it up.

So now, I'm a little more open to trying out some high school snack bars. Are there any other must-eats around here? Any high school venue, any time. Throw out some suggestions.

Tri-Tip sandwiches at AGHS football games are amazing.

try the tacos at coast union football games. If you can't wait that long, Boni's Tacos is usually open on main st. during the weekends!
