College football rules the South during the fall, especially on Saturdays. In fact, few bars and restaurants around Atlanta with a TV aren’t tuned in to one game or another on the weekends. Tailgating food plays a pretty big role in helping people cheer on their favorite team. For those spending the day at home taking in all the college ball action on the television or attending a backyard watch party to support their alma mater, restaurants, bars, and breweries throughout Atlanta also offer great takeout options to feed any size crowd.
Below, Eater compiled a guide to tailgating food and drinks, including where to grab a six pack of local beer, ordering barbecue and taco spreads, and purchasing necessary last minute snacks and supplies before settling in to watch a day of college football.
