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 Panthers 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 the logo on your team’s helmet.
What is the fan-favorite football food in North Carolina?
“North Carolina is all about barbecue, and Panthers fans are all about barbecue-centric tailgates,” Food Network states. Therefore, barbeque sliders are the choice.
Of course, you have options for how you will dig into your BBQ bites while watching the Panthers game. In addition to making your own or grabbing your favorite takeout, Bank of America Stadium in Charlotte has your fan-favorite football food covered as well.
There are seven spots within the stadium where you can find Carolina Barbeque. There is JR’s BBQ shack. Finally, numerous stands simply sell barbeque sandwiches.
