PETA applauds vegetarian options at Arrowhead Stadium

By Associated Press. CREATED Nov 18, 2013

Two cities where the signature food item is essentially a great big pile of meat topped PETA's list of most vegetarian-friendly stadiums.

For the fourth straight year, the Eagles' Lincoln Financial Field in the city that invented the cheesesteak topped the rankings by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium was second.

The organization cited the Linc's vegetarian hoagie, a faux-steak sandwich and veggie dogs among the "exceptional'' options.

At Arrowhead, in one of the country's top barbecue cities, the stadium menu features veggie dogs, veggie burgers and a spicy vegan "Sloppy Jane.'' Naturally, they come with barbecue sauce.

Completing the top five were the Oakland Raiders' Coliseum, with it meat-free chili, vegan chocolate fondue; the Detroit Lions' Ford Field, with its grilled veggie wrap, meat-free barbecue sandwich in premium seating; and the San Diego Chargers' Qualcomm Stadium, with its portabella carpaccio sandwich.
