Some major bands headlined the Austin City Limits Music Festival this past weekend: Kings of Leon, Dave Matthews, Pearl Jam, to name three of them. But during the day, there was another star: chef Tim Love, owner of Lonesome Dove and two Love Shack burger joints, all in Fort Worth, Texas. Each day of the three-day festival, Love cooked around 4,500 burgers, 1,500 hot dogs and 3,000 orders of freshly made potato chips at the Love Shack booth in the food court. Each day. “Saturday I was cooking burgers in the pouring rain; there was a sea of people out there chanting my name,” says Love. “It was nonstop from noon until 10 pm. Love burgers everywhere. It was like being a rock star.” Even better than that were some of the rock stars Love got to hang out with at ACL. More on that tomorrow.
