NFL Stadium Food

With NFL Super Bowl LI fast approaching, what will all the ravenous football fans be chomping on during the four hour long event? It would come as no surprise that there will be meat and a lot of it. There will be cheese and a lot of that too. Burgers, fries, nachos, chicken, waffle fries. There’s no half measures, there’s no modesty. Just a lot of food.

Our cousins across the pond have a very interesting relationship with food, it has to be said. But we are slightly envious of the munch available in NFL stadiums. We feel as though us Brits could let loose a little when watching our sport. Too often we find ourselves hungry and underwhelmed by the slightly bland hot dog available at our stadiums and we yearn for more.

With the New England Patriots and the Atlanta Falcons facing off at the NFL Super Bowl 51 on the 5th February, the fans will be in no shortage of some quality food to enjoy. That’s for sure. So we look ahead to next weekend with a gallery of some of the NFL’s most outrageous stadium food.
