Kickoff to the 2010 NFL season has begun, and after all that tailgating and fist-bumping you've done in the parking lot, you're finally in your seat. And we're betting sometime after watching the first few pigskins fly, you'll want to eat some pig. Or cow. Or steaming hot crab-seasoned french fries. Hop in line, hungry fans -- these stadiums have the food that's worth the wait.
- 'World Famous' Crab Fries by the Chickie's & Pete's at the Philadelphia Eagles' Lincoln Financial Field.
Surprise -- it's not the cheesesteaks that Eagles' fans queue up for, but a bucket of crinkle-cut fries dusted with a special blend of crab seasoning and a side of cheese.
Capiola & Cheese Sandwich by the Primanti Bros. at Pittsburgh Steelers' Heinz Field.
Many a multi-layered capiola and provolone sandwich topped with coleslaw, tomatoes, and a handful of fries have cheered the Steelers to victory.
Bratwurst with Kraut at stands throughout the stadium at the Green Bay Packers' Lambeau Field.
You'll find tons of Wisconsin's famous "cheese curds" (aka deep-fried cheese) around this stadium, but Green Bay fans also buy a record amount of saurekraut-topped Johnsonville bratwursts each season - consistently beating out classic ‘dogs. Bonus: Even the vegetarian brats come highly rated.
Chili Bowl by Bell's Famous Chili at the Baltimore Ravens' M&T Bank Stadium.
A big cup of homestyle chili—a blend of turkey, black beans, tomatoes, bell peppers, sweet onions, and seasoning—keeps Ravens fans warm during frigid game days.
Victory Knot pretzel by Pretzel Hastings at the Detroit Lions' Ford Field.
Visit Ford field for the mother of all pretzels: This two-pounder gourmet soft pretzel comes with three dipping sauces to mop up all that bread. You won' be able to get enough of the spicy mustard, beer cheese, and sweet cream cheese.
Peach Cobbler at the Taste of the South stand at the Atlanta Falcons' Georgia Dome.
Peach cobbler at a football game? Only in the Peach State—and trust us, they know their way around a good peach.
S'pacific Salmon BLT at the Catch! stand at the Seattle Seahawks' Qwest Field.
Qwest Field is known for catering to football foodies—flavored Caffè Appassionato coffees and potent Grounder's World Famous Garlic Fries are among other fan favorites—but they've made a salmon-stacked BLT a particular gourmet-worthy winner.
Cuban sandwich at the Crow's Nest stand at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' Raymond James Stadium.
This huge sandwich may take an entire half-time stretch to finish. It's a stack of deli meats (ham, salami, and pork) dressed with Swiss cheese, tomatoes, pickles and onions between fresh Cuban bread.
Smoked brisket at the KC Style Barbecue stand at the Kansas City Chiefs' Arrowhead Stadium.
No frozen foods here -- Chiefs' fans stand in line to claim in-house smoked brisket with its own special zesty barbecue sauce. And IgoUgo member sjr004 calls Arrowhead Stadium a "definite must-do at least once in your lifetime."
Gordon Biersch Garlic Fries at the San Francisco 49ers'Candlestick Park.
These fries don't just have a dusting of garlic powder, instead, they're soaked in the flavorful, buttery goodness. And PS, don't miss the tailgating tradition before the game—IgoUgo member Sask99 recommends that you "arrive early to catch all the action" and to "get to know your neighbors in the parking lot."
