Celebrities: They eat food! In Austin, no less. Former President Barack Obama famously stopped at Franklin Barbecue and Torchy’s Tacos. “Weird” Al Al Yankovic got some Torchy’s, too. What about Hova?

According to Eater Austin, Jay-Z dined on La Barbecue last weekend for lunch and dinner the day of his Austin City Limits Music Festival set.

Jay-Z performs the headling set on Day 1 of the 2017 ACL Music Festival held at Zilker Park in Austin.

The food blog reports:

“Alas, the musician and his crew didn’t stop by La Barbecue’s indoor space at Quickie Pickie. Instead, the large lunch order were delivered backstage to the Zilker Park festival grounds. The takeout dinner order was delivered to his private jet, which left soon after the headlining set.”

The rapper’s full order included 5 lbs. of brisket, 3 lbs. of turkey and sides galore. Check out the full order on Eater Austin.

So, what’s on the menu this weekend? Man’s gotta eat.
