Tailgate Food to Serve at Your Stadium of Choice

These tailgate foods are sure to shake up your football season festivities

This artichoke dip is perfect for tailgating.

Tailgate food is food for the soul to football fans, and serving a full menu — along with a case of beer, of course — is a great way to kick off the season. Don’t forget to plan your tailgate food menu around your favorite sports team. If you are a Buffalo Bills fan, then serve Buffalo wings as an appetizer.

Also, don’t forget that tailgate food is not just about the wings — OK, maybe it is. For some other tailgate foods that are great to serve with Buffalo wings, see our favorites below.
