New Orleans Saints Prevail in Stadium Food Power Rankings
Last Sunday’s matchup between the New Orleans Saints and the Atlanta Falcons produced more than just a win on the field for the Saints. The team with quarterback Drew Brees at its helm also prevailed in The Daily Meal’s Stadium Food Power Rankings. A battle to find out which NFL team has the best stadium food, the rankings match up rival teams each week. In preparation, The Daily Meal diligently surveyed the food at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and the Georgia Dome.
Thus far, the site’s predictions have been dead-on, and last week’s game was no different. The Georgia Dome’s Nacho Dog, Going Green Salad with Fried Green Tomatoes and Sloppy Jane were no match for the Superdome’s offerings of gumbo and other South Louisiana delicacies.
The official verdict from The Daily Meal: “You had us at alligator sausage, Louisiana. New Orleans Cajun flavors are one of a kind, and a game at the Superdome is a stadium experience like no other. So while tater tots and jalapeños make us very happy and the vegetarian options at the Georgia Dome are better than we’ve seen anywhere else, the winner this week will have to be the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, home to crawfish, alligators, oyster po’boys, and gumbo.”
Fans also have the chance to participate by voting on their stadium’s grub on The Daily Meal’s Facebook page. Look out for this week’s NFL Stadium Food Rankings, featuring the Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. the Carolina Panthers and the Jacksonville Jaguars vs. the Houston Texans.
