Where does one find good grub at Sunfest 2016? This year’s music and art festival, which takes over the downtown West Palm Beach waterfront for five days this week, boasts a respectable range of food offerings.

Here’s where you’ll find the best food offerings near the Tire Kingdom Stage:

Some of this year’s new dishes are designed by local star chef Lindsay Autry on behalf of the Palm Beach Food & Wine Festival. You’ll find those dishes at some of the nearly 20 kiosks of “The Eatery” food court, located on South Flagler Drive between Evernia and Fern streets.

Complete coverage of Sunfest 2016

Food highlights: The chef’s Waffle Fried Chicken ($10) is a waffle studded with bits of crispy-fried chicken and served with spiced honey. She’s also designed a boneless version of Nashville fried chicken ($10) and a gluten-free pizza ($15). “The Eatery” is also where you’ll find one of the fest’s popular “Award Winning Island Noodles” kiosks (where noodles are $8 and $9), and SunFest’s most showy dish, Tropical Pineapple Chicken ($10). This is where you’ll also find the Chick-Fil-A stand, which is not open Sunday. Instead on Sunday, that kiosk will turn into the “Sunday Funday Station,” serving Chef Autry’s hash-brown waffle ($10). Have that waffle loaded with bacon, sour cream and scallions or “on the sweet side” with maple syrup and bacon.

This food court’s good eats also include flatbreads ($11 to $15), Greek gyros ($9), Greek salad ($13), curry chicken shish kebabs ($9), Nathan’s chili dogs ($5), a variety of grilled cheese sandwiches ($10 each), Argentine-style skirt steaks ($14), skinny burgers ($10), tater tots with Sriracha-ranch dipping sauce ($6), Caribbean-style jerk chicken in a cup ($8), tacos ($6) and conch fritters ($12).

Tire Kingdom Stage music highlights: Meghan Trainor (Wed., 8 p.m.), Jason Derulo (Thurs., 8 p.m.), Death Cab for Cutie (Fri., 9 p.m.), Rick Springfield (Sat., 3:30 p.m.), Evanescence (Sun., 7:30 p.m.)
