Super Bowl 53 is just four days away, but that doesn't mean you can't see inside the Mercedes Benz stadium for a sneak peek of the field and the concession items before the big game.
From the 360 degree video screens, to the painted end-zones, to the chicken and waffles, NBC LA has an inside look at the host venue of Super Bowl LIII.
The year-old stadium replaced the old Georgia Dome in August of 2017, and features a multi-purpose retractable roof, and the world's largest halo board (a fancy name for the 360 degree TV screens). It is one of the most high-tech stadiums in the NFL, and features LED lights that go beyond providing fundamental light levels.
The Lumileds technology, enhances the colors you see on camera, making the field, the jerseys, and the players more deep and rich. Also, the LED lights will help prevent another blackout like witnessed in Super Bowl XLVII in New Orleans.
The stadium cost an estimated $1.6 billion and has already hosted an MLS Cup and the College Football National Championship Game.
If you find yourself in the stadium on Super Bowl Sunday, chances are you'll have a craving for some good ol' fashioned Atlanta cuisine. Thankfully, the folks at LEVY restaurants have plenty of items at the concessions stand to cure any craving, and the best part is it won't break the bank!
Stadiums are notorious for increasing their prices, but at Super Bowl LIII you'll be able to get your hands on some tasty snacks for a bargain price.
Mercedes Benz stadium will serve $2 hot dogs, pretzels, and popcorn. Pizza is only $3 a slice, as are nachos. Classic cheeseburgers are just $5 and so are all draft beers!
There will also be speciality hot dogs celebrating both the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots for just $5. The L.A. Chicharro dog comes topped with pinto beans, jalapenos, garlic, roasted poblano pepper strips, cotija cheese, tajin seasonsed chicharrones, and cilantro.
The New England Beantown Frank comes topped with northern beans, maple syrup, bacon, and green onions. There will also be speciality cocktails in honor of both teams at all bars inside the stadium.
However, not all the food items are inexpensive. The Super Bowl can't be held in the South without Chicken and Waffles. The Southern classic features a Belgian waffle, whole fried chicken covered in west-nest hot sauce, sorghum butter, and a side of creamy cole slaw and sweet pickles.
Some of the more creative concession items also include a chicken and waffle bowl, a frito pie, a tequila chicken burger, burnt end nachos, shock top bratwurst, southern poutine and a mac and cheese boat.
Unfortunately for fans, one of the most famous food brands inside the stadium will not be open on Super Bowl Sunday. Chick-fil-A is located inside the concourse at Mercedes Benz stadium, but have been closed on Sunday since 1946. In it's place, the stadium is offering "The C.O.S." It stands for the "Closed on Sunday" chicken sandwich. It's a secret seasoned fried chicken breast, with spicy pickled mayonnaise on a honey butter sweet roll. It sells for $14.
Super Bowl LIII is set to kickoff on Sunday, February 3, 2019 in Atlanta Georgia.
