Nachos are so last season. When Chargers season kicks off at Qualcomm Stadium this fall, patrons will have plenty of new stadium snacks to sink their teeth into.
Delaware North Sportservice, the company that provides Southern California-themed concessions at downtown San Diego’s Petco Park, recently won a contract to do the same at “The Q.”
On Wednesday, the company and the San Diego Chargers unveiled several new, mouthwatering food items that will be available at the stadium come football season.
Those menu items include the “Diego Burger,” a burger boasting American cheese and a fried chile relleno, plus all of the traditional fixings – lettuce, tomato, onions and pickle chips.
There’s also the “Cali Surf Burrito,” which is loaded with shrimp, beef, potato fries, cabbage, pico de gallo, guacamole, salsa, sour cream and cheese.
For especially hungry football fans, the “Philly by the Foot” should measure up nicely: a Philly sandwich that can be made to be up to three feet long.
The “Chicken Buffalo Sandwich” includes chicken tenders covered in buffalo reaper sauce, topped with blue cheese and coleslaw. The “Loaded Skins” consist of mashed potatoes with cheese, bacon bits, sour cream and chili.
Then there’s the “Breakfast Mary in a Cup,” a cool take on a Bloody Mary featuring spicy bloody Michelada mix, generously garnished with bacon on a stick, celery, pickled egg and olives.
Finally, for nacho lovers, there's still this option: the new “Veggie Nachos” boasting roasted corn, peppers, pico de gallo and cotija cheese, which brings the stadium staple to a whole new level.
Additionally, Delaware North Sportservice will offer some new items available in stadium suites. This includes the “Deli Baguette,” roasted turkey, Applewood smoked bacon, genoa salami, soppressata, provolone cheese, spicy giardiniera and parmesan stacked on a three-foot baguette.
Other suite offerings include kettle chips with bacon, ranch and green onion dip and tamales – jalapeno and cheese wrapped in tasty masa dough.
The Chargers take on the Cowboys on Aug. 13 in a pre-season match-up at Qualcomm Stadium. The regular season at The Q kicks off on Sept. 13 with the Bolts squaring off against the Detroit Lions.
