It used to be that stadium food was thought of as overpriced and lacking in flavor. Nobody wants to pay top dollar for old hot dogs with packaged ketchup, stale popcorn and maybe-meat burgers. In Pittsburgh, it’s no longer that way. Whether you’re heading to a fall football game or a spring baseball game, rest assured if you get hungry, you won’t have to settle for expensive and bad-tasting food. Try out these unique and delicious concessions next time you head to a game.

With 47 concession locations throughout Heinz Field, football fanatics will have no problem finding something great to eat in between quarters or when the game gets slow.

With fish and chips, fish sandwiches, and as always, draft beer, Benkovitz is a must-stop eatery if you want to try something different. This little shop will make you feel like you’re in an English pub, not in the middle of Pittsburgh, and allow you to get snag great food while watching the game.

Primanti Brothers
Section 110

Featuring its famous cheesesteaks served with fries and slaw, Primanti Brothers will keep your belly full and your body happy throughout the game. The Steelers are a huge part of Pittsburgh, as is Primanti Brothers, so show your love of the city with a fry-filled sandwich.

Chicken On The Hill
Section 131

If you’re trying to stay away from red meat or craving some light, white protein, Chicken On The Hill is your stop during the ball game. This concession features the classic chicken tender basket as well as some spicy buffalo chicken tenders, a breaded chicken sandwich and all the fries your stomach can handle. Going to a ball game isn’t about eating healthy, it’s about cheering on your team, grabbing a few beers, and eating some meat and fries, all of which can be found at Chicken on The Hill.

Manny’s is one of the most popular foodstands in the ballpark, so there might be a wait, but both the barbecue and a chance to meet Sanguillen are worth it.
