Most people don't go to Paycor Stadium specifically for dinner, but according to one study, they might want to consider it.

Paycor Stadium, home to the Cincinnati Bengals, is one of the top NFL stadiums for people who are fans of football as well as food. At No. 10 of 30 stadiums, the Jungle has an overall index score of 6.52 out of 10, according to a study from U.S. Betting Report. The sports gambling information website's index pulls data based on concessions per square foot, the number of concessions per stadium capacity, and the prices of a beer and a hotdog.

Based on 2022 information, Paycor is full of food options at 30,328 concessions per square foot, which is second only to the Atlanta Falcons' Mercedes-Benz Stadium out of the stadiums in the top 10. The Bengals' home offers 1,074 concessions per stadium capacity.
Paycor Stadium's beers are fairly inexpensive (for stadium prices, that is), with the average price of a beer being $5.27. Compared to 18 stadiums charging an average of $10 or more for a beer – and a whopping $14 for a brewski at the Washington Commanders' FedEx Field – drinking at a Bengals game is a steal. As for hotdogs, Cincinnati's average price of $5.66 is in line with most stadiums, though no NFL team can touch the $2 dogs in Atlanta.

According to Paycor Stadium's website, the Jungle offers fans a variety of traditional sports fare, including sandwiches, chicken tenders, french fries and pizza. The stadium also boasts only-in-Cincinnati favorites like Glier's goetta brats and different Gold Star chili dishes.
