One of the biggest football games of the season is this weekend! We planned accordingly and compiled a list of the best food match-ups for your football watching enjoyment. Whether you watch the games on the comfort of your own couch with a smorgasbord of snacks or choose to cheer from your neighborhood restaurant, we have you covered. Stay tuned Saturday night for our Primetime special directly after the Alabama vs. Ole Miss game on CBS. We’re hosting our hour-long show from inside the College Football Hall of Fame and show off Atlanta’s best gameday grub!
DBA Barbecue (Virginia- Highland)
Fan Favorites: Their pastrami sandwich is one crowds line up for, but it’s hard to order just one item with their wide selection of Creole-influenced southern food. Call ahead for pickup or catering orders!
Fan Favorites: Now you can order Marlow’s platters for your tailgate! Try their Famous Hummus with veggies and pita galore, their Shrimp and Crab Nacho Plate, J.T.’s Kettle chips loaded up with Gorgonzola cheese, bacon, Roma tomatoes and scallion and many more menu options!
Smoke Ring (Castleberry Hill)
Fan Favorites: We can’t get enough of Smoke Ring’s 3-Cheese Mac N Cheese, but there are plenty of other tasty items on their menu. Try their BBQ Deviled Eggs or Brisket Burrito for something outside of the box. You can also order to-go, via GrubHub and have your party catered.
Lucky’s Burgers & Brew (Roswell, Brookhaven and Emory Village)
Fan Favorites: Dine in and watch the game + Atlanta Eats on Lucky’s multitude of TVs or place a to-go order via GrubHub or DoorDash! We can’t get enough of their Fried Pimento Cheese Bites served with Red Pepper Jelly dipping sauce or Spinach and Artichoke Dip served with Lucky’s famous kettle chips.
Matthews Cafeteria (Tucker)
Fan Favorites: You can find everything you need for a southern- inspired tailgate or football party at Matthews Cafeteria. Don’t miss their corn muffins, fried chicken, mac n cheese or banana pudding. They cater and take to-go orders so you have no excuse, you must indulge!
Greater Good BBQ (Tucker, Buckhead and East Lake)
Fan Favorites: After we debuted Greater Good’s Pimento BBQ Potato Skins on Atlanta Eats, we can’t get enough of them! They pile your choice of pork or brisket with pimento cheese, coleslaw and BBQ sauce for a tailgate treat! Greater Good takes To-Go and catering orders as well as dine-in.
Bone Lick BBQ (Edgewood)
Fan Favorites: Bone Lick is so pumped for football season they even offer tailgating packages with their signature ribs, wings and more! They take to-go and catering orders as well as offering incredible dining in-store. The one thing we can’t go without ordering is their Big ‘Ol Totties appetizer aka a layer of tater tots smothered with pulled pork, chili cheese BBQ sauce, sausage and jalapeno.
The Pig & The Pint (College Park)
Fan Favorites: One of the strangest item names we have encountered is also one of our favorites to order- the Barnyard Pimp at The Pig & The Pint. Their signature sandwich is topped with marinated & fried chicken, sharp cheddar, sliced bacon, avocado, apple bbq on top of an onion bun. It’s savory and pairs perfectly with a crisp beer.
Norman’s Landing (Cumming)
Fan Favorites: Some of Atlanta’s best family dining, is also the best football dining. Their pickle chips are perfect for nervous eating during suspenseful games and their signature cheeseburger never disappoints.
