Pair of Local Favorites coming to Razorback Stadium
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. – Razorback Athletics and Levy have teamed up with two local favorites to bring fans visiting Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium this fall some tasty new offerings. Slim Chickens and Dickey’s Barbecue Pit will be on hand to serve up fresh, fried chicken and slow and low barbecue to all Razorbacks fans as part of our growing food and beverage offerings at Razorback home football games.
“When Razorback fans come to Call the Hogs this fall, they will have two brand new food options to help feed their passion,” Senior Associate Athletics Director for Event Management and Guest Experience Chris Pohl said. “With the addition of Slim Chickens and Dickey’s, we have added the popular tastes of two local restaurants to supplement the many food and beverage offerings we have at Donald W. Reynolds Razorback Stadium. Fans can come early and enjoy the variety of options provided by Levy and our other local partners.”
Football and fried chicken make for a perfect game day match! Slim Chickens, a Fayetteville favorite, will dish up their famous homestyle, hand-breaded tenders and freshly made sauces on game days in their two new concessions stands located in the north and south main concourses.
“We’re extremely excited about being in Razorback Stadium!” Co-founder of Slim Chickens Tom Gordon said. “We’ve had a long relationship with the University of Arkansas and couldn’t be prouder to have been selected to offer Slim Chickens to fans during the home games this year. This is the perfect way to introduce our brand to even more people from all over the state and beyond. We’re going to keep the menu simple and offer our signature 100% all-natural fresh chicken tenders, hand breaded and served hot. Of course, we’ll have fries and drinks to complete the Slim Chickens experience.”
Greg Smart, co- founder of Slim Chickens echoed the enthusiasm. “We’ve grown our brand to over 75 locations with another 200+ on the way but being in Razorback Stadium in our home town is one of our proudest moments. I can’t wait to be at the first game, have some Slim Chickens tenders and cheer on the Hogs!”
Barbecue enthusiasts can look forward to sinking their teeth into tender, mouthwatering smoked meats from Dickey’s BBQ. Located in the south end zone on the main concourse and the east and west middle concourses, fans will not want to miss fork-tender smoked pork piled high atop nachos or sandwiched between a pillowy soft bun.
“We are super excited for the opportunity to bring Dickey’s Barbecue Pit to Reynolds Razorback Stadium,” Dickey’s Barbecue Pit owner and operator Mike Stennett said. “We are passionate about the art of barbecue and now Razorback fans we are bringing the cue to you! With our classic pulled pork sandwich on a brioche bun, and a fan favorite barbecue nachos topped with pulled pork. We look forward to making this an even better experience for the fans.”
