It’s not just hot dogs and beer at stadiums anymore: Some of the country’s best chefs and culinary stars are opening buzzed about locations in sporting venues. Here, our top five picks—no reservations required!


SALUMI (Century Link Field, Seattle, WA)
Why We Love It: Armandino Batali, father of celeb chef Mario Batali, is behind this stadium-food hotspot, an outpost of his legendary Seattle-based deli. What to Order: It’s all about the meats here. You can’t go wrong with the fried cotto salami sandwich, topped with caramelized onions, garlic and black pepper. Save the Date: The Rams match-up on December 28 will determine whether the defending Super Bowl champs will get a number one seed (aka home field advantage for the play offs.)


BOURBON STEAK & PUB (Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, CA)
Why We Love It: Celeb chef Michael Mina recently set up shop at Levi’s Stadium, home to the San Francisco 49ers. The 17,000 square foot restaurant is his own fancy and decadent take on traditional tailgating—and you can expect a scene: For example, a Ferris-wheel style two-story rotisserie that cooks 12 animals (chicken, ducks) at once. What to Order: Splurge on the gold rush wagyu burger served with bacon marmalade (photo at top). And for something salty to go with your drink, try the pretzel with “merican beer-infused cheese,” bacon and a coddled egg. Save the Date: Their Super Bowl dreams were dashed, but in respect to coach Jim Harbaugh, watch (and hope) they’ll still finish out the season strong.


B SPOT (First Energy Stadium, Cleveland, OH)
Why We Love It: Michael Symon is the celeb chef behind this new eatery at First Energy Stadium, home to the Cleveland Browns. The restaurant comes as part of a new partnership with Aramark (chefs Rocco Whalen and Jonathon Sawyer also opened signature spots here). What to Order: Try the Thin Lizzy Burger (made with griddled onion, cheddar cheese, mayo and pickles) or the house made beef jerky, served up with Michael’s special (and spicy) spice blend. Save the Date: Don’t miss the December 28 match-up when the Browns play the Baltimore Ravens, a play-off defining game.


UNDERBELLY (NRG Stadium, Houston, TX)
Why We Love It: Local chef Chris Shepherd has set up shop in NRG Stadium, home to the Houston Texans. His popular Korean restaurant, Underbelly, celebrates Houston as a dynamic culinary destination. Now you can sample his most popular dishes while catching a game. What to Order: The roasted pork belly sandwich served in a bao bun with a dash of hoisin sauce and quick pickled cucumbers is a savory favorite. The Butter Braised Bratwurst on a pretzel bun is another hit. Save the Date: Watch Houston and defensive megastar J.J. Watt on December 28 as they play the Jaguars for their last regular season game of the year.


PIZZERIA VETRI (Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, PA)
Why We Love It: James Beard award-winning chef Marc Vetri is behind the concessions at this new high-end pizza spot at Lincoln Financial Field, home to the Philadelphia Eagles. Not only is there a custom brick oven, the menu also offers custom sandwiches created by former Eagle players Michael Quick and Harold Carmichael. What to Order: Vetri’s square Margherita and Sausage pizzas are great for a crowd. Also worth trying: His popular rotolo (spicy soppressata, ricotta cheese and marinara sauce). Save the Date: See if they can defeat one of their top rivals, the New York Giants, as the two teams face off on December 28.
