It’s a place for concerts, family events and of course, home of the Houston Texans. As the players return to the field for the new season, the food game for fans has been taken to a whole new level. Forget stale popcorn or a boring hot dog… Aramark Food Service and other food partners have seriously upped the in-stadium menu options for fans.
This season, two more of Houston’s top restaurants are joining the Houston Texans’ gameday culinary roster at NRG Stadium. Antone’s Famous Po’ Boys and The Original Ninfa’s on Navigation will bring their signature dishes to fans. James Beard award-winning chef Chris Shepherd will feature items from his new restaurant Georgia James and BBQ pit master Ronnie Killen expands his menu with new BBQ favorites.
