From mariscos to barbecue, where to eat near LA’s big new NFL arena

Outside SoFi Stadium in Inglewood.
| Wonho Frank Lee/Eater LA

SoFi Stadium is an incredible sight to behold, spanning acres of Inglewood and costing an estimated $5 billion to build. Now, the showstopping structure is about to hit a significant milestone as it hosts Super Bowl LVI, with the hometown Los Angeles Rams facing the Cincinnati Bengals on February 13, 2022.

In 2021 the stadium began hosting concerts for the first time; locals are still adjusting to the crowds that descend upon the stadium pre- or post-event. The Hollywood Park entertainment complex is under development with more food tenants opening this spring, including local legends Sky’s Gourmet Tacos and Three Weavers Brewing. Until then, it’s always a solid move to be prepared with dining options outside of SoFi. Here now are 18 places to explore around the stadium.

Added: A Family Affair Southern Cuisine, Country Style Jamaican, La Fonda, Los Chorros

Sunday Gravy is the cozy brother-sister-owned restaurant on Centinela near South La Brea, and it’s exactly as the name ascribes, with antipasto, lasagna, meatballs, and a little bit of LA with short rib ragu Italian french fries. It’s an easy stop on the way to, or from, SoFi Stadium.

630 N La Brea Ave Suite 111
Inglewood, CA 90302
(424) 227-6915

This relatively new Inglewood restaurant fits the bill for anyone craving traditional Jamaican fare. While the oxtails, beef patties, goat curry, and pickled escovitch snapper are all well-made, the dish to get here is the jerk chicken platter — a generous portion of peas and rice, caramelized plantains, cabbage, and chicken. Order a cold Ting soda to help offset the heat.
