Food…check. Travel…check. Football…? Earlier this fall I was asked to a story on the food offerings at NFL Stadiums. It was great except for one small thing. I’m not a football person. So, I spent a lot of time googling if the stadiums I was looking at were actually NFL stadiums.
Delicious grilled fish tacos, loaded fajita nachos, juicy Cuban sandwiches; the nation’s stadium food has come a long way from hot dogs and chips. This year NFL stadiums are going local, sourcing food from neighborhood providers and sticking to flavors that pay homepage to the their city’s food roots. So, whether you’re rooting for your favorite team at your home stadium or hitting the road for an away game, there’s something delicious to eat, especially if you’re looking for a dish with a Latin twist. We scoured the stadiums for the best Latin influenced dishes and found classic street tacos, creative sandwiches, and decadent chips and fries.
Carne Asada Torta, Levi’s Stadium
Home of the San Francisco 49ers, Levi’s Stadium’s Tortas Stands in sections 108, 124, and 307 is the place to head to for the stadium’s best Latin dish. They stand dishes up carnitas tortas, pulled chicken tortas, vegan nopales tortas, chips and salsa, and nachos. But for the ultimate torta and Latin food at the stadium go for the carne asada with sliced beef skirt steak, pinto beans, queso fresco, jalapeno peppers, and avocado.
Teal Street Tacos, EverBank Field
Seasoned beef or chicken topped with shredded Monterey jack cheese, pickled red onions, and cilantro in homemade tortillas…street tacos are timeless Mexican cuisine. It’s the dish that crosses all economic boundaries just maybe not fan loyalties. Fans of the Jacksonville Jaguars find these Teal Street Tacos at EverBank Field’s Taquerias and in the Bud Light Party Zone.
