Arrowhead a vegetarian-friendly stadium? PETA thinks so

Two cities where the signature food item is essentially a great big pile of meat topped PETA’s list of most vegetarian-friendly NFL stadiums.

For the fourth straight year, the Eagles’ Lincoln Financial Field — in the city that invented the cheesesteak — topped the rankings by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.

Second place? Arrowhead Stadium.

Even in barbecue-rich Kansas City, Arrowhead’s menu features veggie dogs, veggie burgers and a spicy vegan “Sloppy Jane.”

PETA cited Lincoln Financial Field’s vegetarian hoagie, a faux-steak sandwich and veggie dogs among its “exceptional” options.

Completing the top five were the Oakland Raiders’ Coliseum, with its meat-free chili and vegan chocolate fondue; the Detroit Lions’ Ford Field, with a grilled veggie wrap and meat-free barbecue sandwich in premium seating; and the San Diego Chargers’ Qualcomm Stadium, with a portabella carpaccio sandwich.
