Once upon a time I lived near the world famous Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.  However thanks to parking issues and distance between the food on the boardwalk I didn’t consider making Boardwalk food a part of my routine of takeout.

Well things have changed in 2020 with the rise of Door Dash, the Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk now has a drive up curb service which you can order ahead and pickup food yourself or just use Door Dash or Post Mates.

The official store name on Door Dash is “Boardwalk Fun Foods Santa Cruz” and it appears they will deliver pretty far and wide, up to about 10 miles from the famous food store.

Some of the most popular foods people order include …


Corn Dogs – $6 to $8


Garlic Fries – $8



Dipping Dots Futuristic Ice Cream – $7


Boardwalk Pretzels – $5.50 (cinnamon sugar  or  cheese cup  add $1)


and because they are near the artichoke capital of the world, grab an order of
deep fried artichoke bites for $8.50


While these sweet and savory fun foods come with the traditional fairgrounds pricing they have a couple filling options which are very reasonably priced to create a meal out of fun food including a $6.95 fried chicken sandwich and a $9.50 bbq beef or bbq pulled pork sub sandwich.


If you ever find yourself staying at a hotel in Santa Cruz be sure and look for “Boardwalk Fun Foods” on your Door Dash app.
