Hand-Breaded Free-Range Chicken Sandwich at West Nest
This tasty chicken sandwich, available at West Nest on the 300 concourse, is one of the city's best, either inside or outside the stadium. A juicy Prestige Farms chicken thigh is dredged in flour seasoned with 17 herbs and spices (some of which are grown in the on-site garden) before being fried to golden brown. The sandwich comes tucked into a challah bun dressed with refrigerated pickles, honey hot sauce and Doux South chow-chow. Fun (and useful) fact: In-the-know guests can request a gluten-free version and the team will happily accommodate. The always-busy stand is staffed by graduates of Westside Works, a community job-training program helping revitalize the neighborhoods surrounding the stadium.

Fresh Doughnut Assortment at Sublime Doughnuts
Genius local baker Kamal Grant put Atlanta on the map for artisan breakfast confections, and his two Sublime Doughnuts locations on the stadium's club levels always draw a crowd. No matter the time of day, satisfy your sweet tooth with fresh doughnuts in such flavors as strawberries and cream, red velvet cake and dulce de leche, or go even more creative with a white chocolate peach or caramel apple fritter. If your crew is hungry, get a 3- or 6-count assorted box to take back to your seats, or spring for an over-the-top doughnut ice cream burger.

Frosted White Whiskey Sour Slushie at Gamechanger
Local celebrity chef Kevin Gillespie created his Gamechanger concept especially for The Benz's 200 concourse, and this sweet-tart cocktail has quickly become a favorite. Made with local distillery American Spirit Whiskey's white whiskey, the smooth, adults-only drink packs a boozy punch. Fans of the gregarious chef just might see him working the line on any given Sunday.
The No. 1 Farm Burger at Farm Burger
With its consistently juicy grass-fed beef burgers, Farm Burger has become a local and regional favorite with eateries around the Southeast. This outpost on Concourse 200 serves its signature creation with aged white cheddar, caramelized onions and Farm Burger Sauce, a creamy topping studded with tangy chopped pickles. Pair it with garlic, herb and Parmesan FB Fries for a satisfying — and sizable — meal.
