WWE and wrestling fans from all over the globe are preparing to descend upon South Philadelphia for WrestleMania XL on April 6th and 7th. It’s the biggest event in the pro wrestling universe, and you’re going to need to fuel up while you’re at Lincoln Financial Field, especially if you’re going to be there on both nights.

If you’re arriving from outside of this area, welcome to the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection! At the Linc, home of the Philadelphia Eagles, there are a bunch of different places to eat that represent our city’s rich history and big appetite.

If you’re local, it can still be overwhelming to figure out where to spend your precious time in line for a bite. With a capacity of approximately 65,600 seats, the stadium is huge. We know that you don’t want to miss a minute of Mania, so it’s important to plan ahead. (And after a beverage or two, you’ll be grateful you got a lay of the land ahead of time.)

Plus, our gluten-free friends and veg-heads need something to snack on! But where do you find it?

We’ve narrowed down your options below based on cuisine type. Don’t forget to explore outside of the stadium, too – Philadelphia is one of the hottest foodie cities in the United States, and there are so many places to eat. But once you’re through the gates of the Linc for the “Showcase of Immortals,” here’s where you can satisfy your cravings while you watch each match go down.

Need to cross-check your seat and section with the location of a food vendor? Find the Lincoln Financial Field seating map on the stadium website. Don’t forget to bookmark this page for the next Birds season.

Here’s Where to Eat at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia

  • Chickie's & Pete's Buffalo Chicken Cutlets and Crab Fries

    Lucky for all of us who love the salty goodness of crab fries, Chickie’s and Pete’s are found at various locations throughout the stadium (and just down the street at 1526 Packer Avenue). Crab fries are crinkle-cut, fresh-fried fries coated in Old Bay seasoning. They are a must-have.

  • Philly Pretzel Factory

    The perfect handheld snack made complete with spicy mustard. It’s the easiest handheld snack for an event. Don’t miss out on a Philly pretzel. Located at Section 106.

  • Tony Luke's Roast Pork Italian Sandwich and Cheesesteaks

    Tony Luke’s is a South Philly staple, with stick-to-your ribs sandwiches that’ll keep you satiated. When you’re in Philly, at a Philly stadium, you need to eat a cheesesteak. Located at section 112.

  • Bassett's BBQ

    Bassett’s has a full BBQ menu, including their “Smokin’ bacon BBQ cheesesteak”. If BBQ is your thing, give this place a try. It’s a more unique take on traditional Philly stadium food! Located in the Pepsi Plaza.
