Just how much of a commitment are you willing to make to your food?
With tacos, the portability factor alone means you can eat them on the run, sans utensils, and the absence of a need for a fine dining location means you can be as casual as you wish.
That’s what Chef Ray Garcia is counting on with the addition of BS Taqueria to the expansion of Foodie Paradise at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden during the BNP Paribas Open. This is Garcia’s second stadium restaurant following the Staples Center in Los Angeles, but he noted the menu has been expanded at the Indian Wells location.
“It’s an easy kind of snack, ” says Garcia of his menu. “You don’t have to commit to a full meal, and there is variety. We have mushroom, beef, chicken, pork, and we have fruits and cucumber salad. As much as as there are big bold flavors, there is also cooling and refreshing items, too.”
BS Taqueria sits along the outdoor corridor that surrounds the fourth floor of Stadium One, so it would be easy to wander out to view a match below. However, Garcia says his responsibilities in the kitchen often supersede the sport.

“I’m not a big tennis fan, but being so busy in the kitchen there is a not a lot of opportunity to follow up on many sports,” Garcia says.
