There are plenty of ways to keep yourself satiated and your thirst quenched if you’re headed to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in downtown Atlanta. Read on for some of where to eat and drink inside the stadium and our top picks for grabbing a bite or a drink in the area around the building.

If you’re inside the stadium: 

•The 2 million-square-foot sports facility offers many ways to fill the belly and wet a whistle. Check out a full listing of the (largely local) food and drink offerings and where to find them, including Delia’s Chicken Sausage, Iberian Pig, Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q and, of course, Chick-fil-A (but never on a Sunday). 

•If you love beer, find out everything you need to know about drinking inside the stadium, including some of the local beers on tap as well as pricing.

•Looking for a burger or some fried chicken with a view? Restaurant Molly B’s -- which overlooks the field at Mercedes-Benz Stadium and is named for the mother of Atlanta Falcons and United owner Arthur Blank -- serves up both. 

If you venture outside the stadium: 

Take a short walk to the heart of the Castleberry Hill neighborhood, where you’ll find everything from sushi to fried chicken and a restaurant, ice cream parlor and hookah lounge each with a celebrity pedigree. 

•Check out 10 restaurants within walking distance of The Benz that’ll satisfy your cravings for everything from Mexican food to burgers.
