The four-week stretch between the last two weeks of October and the first two weeks of November may very well be the best period of the entire year for sports fans. Think about it: the MLB hosts its annual World Series, the NFL and college football are in the heat of their seasons, the NHL’s a month into the season, and the NBA and college basketball are just starting out. Needless to say, it’s a great time for game day foods.
Never mind great time for game day foods, it’s the BEST time for game day foods! Whether you’re tailgating at Gillette Stadium in New England, at the Darrell K Royal Stadium in Austin, TX, or in the comfort of your own living room watching the Chicago Bulls on a Tuesday night, there are always certain foods that both make the big game that much better and that much more entertaining. Thus, we’ve collectively come up with a list of the best game day foods for 2014, and we’ve even paired up a few of our favorite restaurants for you to get them delivered from in Boston, Chicago, Dallas, Minneapolis and Philadelphia!
