Where to Eat at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Home of the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United FC

There’s much more than burgers and hot dogs

Out with the (sort-of) old, and in with the new. Atlanta bid adieu to the Georgia Dome in spectacular fashion last November after a quarter-century. The implosion heard ‘round the city made way for the transformer that is Mercedes-Benz stadium and its retractable roof. The state-of-the-art facility officially serves as home base for the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons as well as MLS’s Atlanta United FC. The stadium boasts first-of-its-kind technology throughout, and it has all the dining and drinking options to match.

Food at the Benz includes local restaurateurs like Top Chef alum Kevin Gillespie serving cheesesteaks and pork sandwiches or the Fox brothers and Delia Champion bringing fans barbecue and chicken sausages. Atlanta’s Concentrics Restaurants has two eateries here. These familiar names are but a small sample of what sports fans and concert goers can expect at the stadium—which includes both pricey premium items and some standard fare that’s actually affordable. Here’s the full rundown of the food and beverage selections at the Mercedes-Benz stadium.

All listings below are open to the public. Private club/suite amenities are not included.

Delia’s Chicken Sausage Stand

Longtime local restaurateur Delia Champion operates locations of her Sausage Shack in East Atlanta and Westside, and now she has three stands inside Atlanta’s Goliath of a stadium. Diners will find a limited Delia’s menu, sodas, and bottled water. What to order: The hot mess, which is chicken sausage, chili, cheddar cheese, pickled jalapeños, and comeback sauce on a bun. Sections 133, 221, and 330.

Farm Burger

This thriving local chain focuses on top quality ingredients for its burgers and fries. The MBS stand also offers fresh-brewed sweet tea, beer, sodas, and bottled water. What to order: One can’t go wrong with a classic. The No. 1 Farm Burger comes with grass-fed beef, aged white cheddar, caramelized onions, and Farm Burger sauce. Section 245.

Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q

Atlanta’s favorite Texas-style pitmasters already serve their barbecue at the homes of the Braves and Hawks, so it’s no surprise that they’re on board to feed hungry Falcons and United fans. There are no beef ribs, sadly, but Fox Bros. fans will find a few of the smokehouse’s staple sandwiches. Menus vary at each location. What to order: Frito pie, with brisket chili, shredded cheese, diced onion, and corn chips. Sections 136, 240, and 342.

Fox Bros. TexMex-A-Cue.

Fox Bros. TexMex-A-Cue

In addition to their barbecue standards, Jonathan and Justin Fox will serve some smoky Tex-Mex mashups. These tacos may be some of the best bites in the entire stadium. What to order: The pork taco, comprised of chopped smoked pork avocado, tomatillo salsa, and jalapeño slaw on a flour tortilla. Section 311 in the 100 Yard Club.

Golden Brown & Delicious

GB&D is a new Southern project from Concentrics Restaurants, the company behind One Midtown Kitchen, Parish, and more. Look for plenty of battered, fried fare here. Anyone who isn’t hungry will still want to visit for a bourbon and Coke slushie . What to order: The Dirty Bird fries are loaded down with braised jerk chicken gravy, cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese, and chives. Section 115.

Kevin Gillespie’s Gamechanger

Top Chef alum and red-bearded restaurateur Kevin Gillespie is a lifelong Falcons fan, so it’s safe to say he’s quite excited to be serving this city’s football enthusiasts. At Gamechanger, Gillespie’s team will serve what he describes as junk food of a higher quality, featuring big, bold flavors. What to order: The Closed-on-Sunday chicken sandwich, made of a seasoned, fried chicken breast, hot sauce, and pickled mayonnaise, on a honey butter sweet roll, is a favorite at Gillespie’s Gunshow and Revival restaurants. Don’t skip it. Section 223.

Molly B’s Kitchen

Named for Falcons and United owner Arthur Blank’s mother, Molly B’s is a second Concentrics venture at The Benz. Chef Michael Bertozzi of Two Urban Licks created the menu, taking inspiration from some of Molly Blank’s recipes. The location can’t be topped, as it offers full-service dining with wide-open views of the playing field. What to order: The Molly B’s burger is made of two short rib patties, gruyere, French onion soup mayo, dijon, pickles, and caramelized onions on a brioche bun. Section 133.

Snackology 101 Market

Much of the food available inside the stadium doesn’t qualify as healthy, but that’s not the case at Snackology. With three locations, this stand specializes in salads and other gluten-free, vegan items. What to order: The market tray comes with six tapas-sized portions of Snackology salads and rice crackers. Sections 116, 209, and 348.

West Nest

Students and graduates of the Westside Works Culinary Academy run this stand on the 300 concourse. They’re in charge of cooking and service, and they developed the West Nest menu long before Mercedes-Benz Stadium opened to the public. What to order: The premium chicken in waffle bowl is an over-the-top combination of a tempura-battered chicken tender, waffle fries, Kool-Aid pickles, and honey hot sauce in a waffle bowl. Section 324.
