As football fans prepare to watch all of the games this weekend, one common question will be asked in every household. What are we going to eat? The Food Network compiled a list of the fan-favorite food for each NFL team. In other words, what food most perfectly pairs with football games?
In this feature, many local elements were considered when selecting the football food for each market across the country. Food (and beverage) is a universal must-have that can unite fans of various teams, even when they square off against each other. For example, a large tray of overloaded nachos would be served for all gathered around the TV to share, regardless of which team they are rooting for. Perhaps you were at the bar or get-together for the Falcons game. Was the platter of chicken wings served to fans of only your team (though that’s not a bad idea)?
The food choice enhances your gameday experience. It adds to the excitement and anticipation of those weekly hours when you sit and watch the big game.
Here, the Food Network recognized that. They also took into account the local flavors of your home state. When you put that together, the result is a fan-favorite football food with a hometown flavor. It’s as unique to your market as your team’s helmet logo.
So, What is the fan-favorite football food in Georgia?
Fried Chicken Sandwich
According to the Food Network, this popular sandwich is something Atlanta Falcons fans love to have during games. In fact, they point out Stats Brewpub, around the corner from Mercedes-Benz Stadium, is a place to get a great fried chicken sandwich.
If you are heading into the stadium, head over to Gamechanger located in section 107. They serve a hearty fried chicken sandwich on a sweet honey butter roll. If you grabbed your Falcons fan-favorite football food at a specific location last week, you might consider going through the same routine this week. The Falcons had a great opening game, defeating the Carolina Panthers. They will be at home again this Sunday, taking on the Green Bay Packers.
