Denver – Something’s cooking at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, home of the Denver Broncos, and PETA is taking notice. In fact, thanks to the delicious meat-free options available at the concession stands, the venue has earned an honorable mention in its first-ever inclusion on PETA’s list of the Top Five Vegetarian-Friendly NFL Stadiums in the country.

“From fun and exciting build-your-own noodle bowls to one of the best mock-chicken strips on the market, Broncos fans can indulge in some of the tastiest vegetarian food in the country,” says PETA Associate Director Ryan Huling. “Manning, Welker, and the rest of the team are getting it done on the field, and the great vegetarian options offered this year will leave Broncos fans feeling more satisfied than Champ Bailey after a pick-six.”

Exceptional vegetarian offerings in the general concession stands include the grilled veggie wrap and the superb chicken-free chicken bowl, which includes mock-chicken strips from Beyond Meat, napa cabbage, bok choy, carrots, onions, red and green peppers, bean sprouts, broccoli, gluten-free teriyaki, and choice of rice noodles or yakisoba noodles. Visitors to the Blitz Burger Grille can order a tasty and satisfying Gardenburger. Fans in sections 314 and 332 can also enjoy the smothered burrito (made to order, so it can be vegan) and special chef-prepared selections, including the noodle bowl, which can also be made vegan.

Topping the rankings this year is the Philadelphia Eagles’ Lincoln Financial Field. Rounding out the top five are the high-flying division rival Kansas City Chiefs’ Arrowhead Stadium (second place), the Oakland Raiders’ O.co Coliseum (third place), the Detroit Lions’ Ford Field (fourth place), and the San Diego Chargers’ Qualcomm Stadium. Also receiving honorable mentions are the homes of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Seattle Seahawks, Minnesota Vikings, and Arizona Cardinals.
