Where to Watch the Saints Face Off Against the Lions This Weekend

By: Brittney Forbes

It's been a shaky start to the season, but there's still plenty of time for the Saints to turn it around. Besides, maybe it's the shift in the weather (or maybe it's the beer), but there's just something about football that can help you almost feel like you're back to a state of normalcy. Our eyes have been on the Black and Gold for years, and we shouldn't turn away, so why not check them out at these local eateries? Here are several spots to grab some drinks and some snacks and root for the team. Who dat!

5216 Table and Tap

Whether you're there for the booze or the food, Table and Tap will make you feel like you're living that pre-coronavirus life again. With numerous TVs and a few of your quarantine buddies, you can indulge with fellow Saints fans as you munch on their avocado fritas (crispy fried avocado "fries"), various street tacos, or even their steak specials. 5216 Veterans Blvd., (504) 766-1417, 5216tableandtap.com


Available for dine-in, takeout, and delivery, NOLA Caye can't help the Saints defense, but they can keep your hunger away. This Caribbean restaurant gives off very summer-y vibes with their island burgers, watermelon gazpacho, and seared tuna street tacos. Check out the game on their big screen as the Saints face the Lions. 898 Baronne St., (504) 302-1302, nolacaye.com

The Duke

Serving you pasta, fried food, and even handcrafted burgers, you won't want to leave The Duke, even after a Saints win. This welcoming eatery serves all of your go-to starters, including fried mac and cheese, fried pickles, and more. They have an array of meals from the grill and even some of your kiddos' favorites, such as chicken nuggets, hot dogs, and hamburgers, so the younger members of the Who Dat Nation can also join in the fun. 2740 Severn Ave., Metairie, (504) 353-4227, thedukemetairie.com


Calling themselves a Big Easy favorite for home-style Italian and seafood, Mandina's restaurant will keep you stuffed for your pre-game, during-game, and post-game eats. Whether you're with your crew or just hungry, they offer appetizer platters (fried shrimp, fried chicken strips, fried catfish, and more) and seafood platters (fried fish, fried shrimp, fried oysters, and a crab ball with fries) for everyone to love. 3800 Canal St., (504) 482-9271, mandinasrestaurant.com

Legacy Kitchen's Craft Tavern

Ah, a Saints win is definitely comforting, but so are food options at the Legacy Kitchen Craft Tavern. They serve brunch until noon, so if you head there before kickoff, you can enjoy their fried chicken and waffles, their Eggs Benedict, or the crawfish and egg beignets. And speaking of beignets, they serve them all day, every day. What is better than that, other than a Saints win? 700 Tchoupitoulas St., (504) 613-2350, legacykitchen.com
