Mercedes-Benz Stadium is one of the BEST stadiums who actually listens to their customers! Not only do they offer a plethora of Vegan Food items but their prices are not going to make you broke as a joke when you leave.
Mercedes-Benz has a Meat-less Grill, Vegan Hot Dogs, sweet treats like Dippin’ dots and candy, and healthy eats like Kale Salad, Hummus and Vegan Chicken Salad. THIS is how every stadium should be transitioning to.

Can I Bring Food Into Mercedes-Benz Stadium?
Sometimes it seems like it’s easier to just bring your own food to events. If you’re thinking of doing this at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, here are a few policies at the stadium that you need to be aware of.
We pulled these directly from the Mercedes-Benz Stadium A to Z Guide.
Bag Policy (as of 9/28/21)
For quickest entry into the stadium, we strongly recommend that you do not bring a bag on event day. If a bag is necessary, the bag (including all Diaper Bags) must meet the following criteria in order to enter the stadium:
Bags must be CLEAR plastic, vinyl or PVC and not exceed 12” x 6” x 12”. Bags cannot be tinted with color or include oversized content that prevents visibility into the clear bag.
Only non-clear bags that are smaller than 4.5” x 6.5” will be permitted into the stadium.
Any type of non-clear bag exceeding 4.5” x 6.5” in size will not be permitted.
Diaper bags must be clear and comply with the Mercedes-Benz Stadium Clear Bag Policy. Clear diaper bags that meet the stadium’s bag policy specifications and accompany a child are permitted but are subject to search upon entry. Baby and infant care items such as bottled formula and small snacks may be brought into the stadium, however, those items must be carried in a clear bag meeting the bag policy guidelines.
Camera bags and cases that accompany any permitted personal device must meet the clear bag policy specifications or will be denied entry.
Exceptions to the Clear Bag Policy will only be made for medically necessary items after proper inspection by security personnel. Please ask for assistance at the gate.
Guests with non-complying bags can store their items for a fee at one of the conveniently located bag check locations provided by The Mobile Locker Company outside of Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

Vegan Options Near Mercedes-Benz Stadium
Jen and I always like making getting a bite to eat before or after the game part of our gameday ritual. We figure we can’t be the only ones that do this, so we’re going to suggest a couple good vegan-friendly spots close to the stadium to try.
This is by no means a complete list, just a couple of our favorites.
476 Edgewood Ave SE, Atlanta, GA 30312
Maybe we’re just biased because we live in Atlanta, but I feel like every vegan (at least in the US), has heard of Slutty Vegan. Well, if you’re in town for a Falcons or United game, then now is your chance.
Slutty Vegan is located just two miles east of the stadium. (FYI – This is not the original location. That one is located a little further away, southwest of the stadium) Definitely something to cross off your bucket list though!
565 Peachtree St NE, Atlanta, GA 30308
Located just two miles northeast of the Benz is Herban Fix. Atlanta is a great city for vegan food and Herban Fix is one of our best. They serve up Pan-Asian food in a really cool and contemporary spot. Highly recommend the ravioli!
