Georiga Dome Scores in PETA’s List of NFL’s Top 5 Vegetarian-Friendly Stadiums

What happens when rough-and-tumble football meets healthy and humane vegetarian food? Just ask Pro Bowl running back Arian Foster, who recently went vegan and has helped lead the Texans to the top of the AFC South. You can also find the answer when you visit the concession stands at any Atlanta Falcons home game, which is why PETA has named the Georgia Dome number four in its survey of the top five vegetarian-friendly NFL stadiums in the country.

“Matty Ice is playing like an MVP, and the MVP of the Georgia Dome’s concession stands may be the mock-meat sloppy joe, made with peppers, onions, molasses, and brown-sugar barbecue sauce. Also available and fresh off the burner (no Michael Turner pun intended) are veggie dogs and veggie burgers, possibly the best duo since Roddy White and Julio Jones,” says PETA Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. “You don’t have to pose in a PETA ad like Tony Gonzalez did to enjoy these options.”

Visitors to the concession stands can choose from the vegetarian sloppy joe, veggie dogs and burgers, PB&J, veggie cups with hummus, and fruit cups. Fans in the suite areas can also enjoy summer vegetable and tofu flatbread with chipotle Vegenaise; guacamole, white bean hummus, and spicy salsa served with pita and tortillas; and salad with fried green tomatoes, green beans, and herbed-champagne dressing.

Taking first place for the third straight year is Lincoln Financial Field, home of the Philadelphia Eagles. Its specialties include mock-steak sandwiches, faux-chicken sandwiches, seitan brisket, spicy falafel, hummus and pita chips, and grilled vegetable hoagies. Rounding out the top five are the New England Patriots’ Gillette Stadium (second place), Oakland Raiders’ O.co Coliseum (third place), and the Detroit Lions’ Ford Field (fifth place). Receiving honorable mention are the Kansas City Chiefs’ Arrowhead Stadium, the St. Louis Rams’ Edward Jones Dome, the San Francisco 49ers’ Candlestick Park, and MetLife Stadium, home of the New York Jets and the New York Giants.
