Exceptional food offered at area stadiums

From traditional food like Jambalaya to the not so common chicken wings, various high school booster clubs and fans in the River Parishes offer their own variety.

“We (East St. John) have the best beef hot dogs anywhere around. Our homemade chili is also second to none,” Jeckla Slayton of Reserve. “Also, Bertis Tamplain makes the best jambalaya around.”

Some people have other opinions on the subject.

“I like Destrehan’s food. They have a lot to choose from and the people are friendly,” said East St. John fan Pam Montz.

Spaghetti, at a football game?

“I had never heard of it until they started serving it at West St. John,” said Montz.

Montz said that WSJ may have the best food overall because of the variety. She said fans can choose from chicken wings, spaghetti, and barbecue.

According to Ted Abadie, East St. John needs a little more on the visitor’s side.

“I think the food is great. They just need a couple of more workers on the visitor’s side of the field,” said the Vacherie resident.

Who has the best stadium in the area?

“I like the way Lutcher’s stadium is set up. The parents working one of the food stands can see their kids play,” according to Slayton.

Surprisingly, Montz believes that the best stadiums are in Lafourche parish.

“I think South Lafourche, Central Lafourche, and Thibodaux probably have the best stadiums.”

Kenny Hymel of Vacherie said he enjoys St. James’ stadium but would like to see improvement in the bathrooms.

“I also like the going to Donaldsonville and St. Charles Catholic. The set-up is very comfortable there,” said Hymel. “East St. John is good, but it is easy for kids to fall through the bleachers on the opposing team side.”

There is also no grass underneath which makes it more dangerous.”
