Food and drinks are an important part of the game day experience and with football season on the way, we thought we’d let you know that you’ll be spending less on concessions when it comes to watching your favorite team, at least compared to other stadiums.
Betting.com analyzed the cost of beer and a hot dog at each of the 30 NFL stadiums across the nation to reveal the most and least expensive for game day food. The Hard Rock Stadium, home to our beloved Miami Dolphins, was ranked as a top pocket-friendly venue. At $4 for a hot dog and around $5 for a beer, our stadium landed in second place.
That’s slightly less expensive than the Baltimore Ravens’ M&T Bank Stadium, which followed in third with a beer costing you $7.

At No. 5 sits the Paycor Stadium of the Cincinnati Bengals with $5.53 beers and $5.66 hot dogs.
