Hungry and thirsty at WinterWonderGrass? 7 food and drink vendors have you covered

Skull Creek Greek owner Cynthia Pougiales and food truck manager Stephen Bourgeois are all smiles after learning their operation won best food cart in this year's Best of the Boat.

STEAMBOAT SPRINGS — Here’s a guide to the food options available at WinterWonderGrass. Food vendors will stay open until 10:30 p.m. each evening of the festival.

Moe's Original BBQ — Founded by three University of Alabama friends, Moe's Original BBQ aims to represent all things Southern — barbecue, blues, college football and whisky — in a relaxed yet sometimes-civilized atmosphere. The nation-wide chain of Southern soul food revival smokes all meat fresh daily and offers a slew of side dishes and desserts made from classic, generations-old recipes.

Skull Creek Greek — The Skull Creek Greek Wagon offers gyros, salads, falafel, souvlaki, spanakopita, baklava and more, and is based out of the eatery in Old Town Square in downtown Steamboat Springs. It's named after the Skull Creek area outside of Dinosaur National Monument, three hours west of Steamboat, where several Greek families quit coal mining to pursue sheep herding, traveling with their sheep between winters there and summers in Northwest Colorado. The downtown location of Skull Creek Greek is especially well known for staying open until 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays for that late-night feast.

Super Heady Tacos — Super Heady Tacos, by McDevitt Taco Supply, began on Boulder's Pearl Street Mall and has since visited dozens of music festivals across the country in their mobile kitchen. These taco slingers feature a disco ball and constant upbeat energy. Options range from chocolate chipotle beef tacos to vegan sweet potato and roasted black bean, Thai ginger tilapia tacos to honey chili shrimp, plus a full range of appetizers and salsas.

Steamboat Smokehouse & Ciao Gelato — Steamboat Smokehouse and Ciao Gelato are next-door neighbors downtown, most easily found by the full-size pig statue often sporting seasonal paint and attire lounging on the sidewalk, greeting everyone who passes. The Smokehouse cooks its meats with hickory and oak, using an old-fashioned low, slow technique generally lasting 12 to 15 hours. Ciao Gelato offers gelato in a constantly changing array of slow-churned flavors, including classics as well as Nutella, blueberry cheesecake, chili chocolate and even a 21-and-over Margarita gelato. Fresh-made pizzas, paninis and baked treats are also available.

Los Dos Paelleros — This father-daughter team specializes in preparing Paella Valenciana, a traditional Spanish stew-like dish of rice, saffron, meats, seafoods and vegetables, made and served in a large shallow frying pan. Los Dos Paelleros cook over an open wood fire, using traditional ingredients and processes. They travel across Colorado, cooking for festivals and private events, and offer vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free paella options.
