The debut of Tulane's new football stadium redraws some of the calculations for quick, easy game day meals. Here are a half-dozen options serving a diverse range of food in the radius for fans on the way to the game or back.


Ted's Frostop

3100 Calhoun Street, New Orleans

504-861-3615

Directly across from the stadium, Ted's is a local classic for burgers, root beer and hearty diner-style breakfast dishes with a nostalgic feel.

Bayou Hot Wings

6221 S. Claiborne Avenue, New Orleans

504-865-9464

Also within view of the stadium, a wing shop with hand-crafted sauces and options for shrimp, chicken or even frog legs dunked in these spicy, sweet or in-between coatings.

The Sammich

7708 Maple Street, New Orleans

844-726-6424

On Maple Street, a modern po-boy shop with a creative kitchen and a laidback, family-friendly vibe. Get something different, like the Korean chicken po-boy, or something a little lighter, like grilled the vegetable po-boy with tofu remoulade.

Satsuma Cafe

7901 Maple Street, New Orleans

504-309-5557

Speaking of lighter, this casual, counter-service cafe has blissfully fresh salads, fresh juice blends and other alternatives to typical quick-serve indulgences, while fat sandwiches and breakfast dishes also satisfy.

The Midway

4721 Freret Street, New Orleans

504-322-2815

Freret Street is chockablock with good options for casual food near the stadium. The Midway stands out for its massive, family-size Chicago deep dish pizzas (one large can easily take care of a family of four), and a bar with a great beer selection.

Dat Dog

5030 Freret Street, New Orleans

504-899-6883

And then of course there are hot dogs, practically synonymous with a day at the stadium. Dat Dog has gone a long way to making them downright cool again, and the menu covers a united nations of sausage links as well. The beer garden setting in the patio is perfect for pre- or post-game visits.
