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

Copy Link

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.

The Serving Spoon

Copy Link

Be mindful of operating hours when heading to the Serving Spoon: Though open daily, the legendary breakfast restaurant closes at 2 p.m. Order a mimosa to pair with the fried chicken, waffles, and mac and cheese.

Country Style Jamaican Restaurant

Copy Link

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.

Tortugo Brewing Company

Copy Link

Directly off the 405 and Florence is Tortugo Brewing Company. This unfussy brewery with a tasting room sports an outdoor patio. It regularly secures pop-ups to feed anyone headed to SoFi, or those ready to sit back and watch a game or match at the brewery.

Martin's Cocina y Cantina

Copy Link

Mexican staple Fiesta Martin opened the first restaurant in 2009, with four locations dominating South LA. The same family launched Martin’s Cocina y Cantina in early 2021 and it’s a six-minute drive to SoFi Stadium. Expect nachos, taquitos, tacos, enchiladas, and platters like the traditional chile verde with rice and beans and guacamole. And if you can’t make the game, they will definitely have it on one of the many TVs in the bright, festive room.

The Wood Urban Kitchen

Copy Link

The Wood Urban Kitchen is the perfect NFL stop with brisket, slabs of ribs, rib tips, and traditional sides. Be sure to order the sweet potato pound cake with a cocktail before or after the game. Or simply stake out an outdoor table and order away while you watch the Chargers or Rams on TV.

Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles

Copy Link

When heading to an American institution like a football game, it makes sense to visit an LA establishment like Roscoe’s House of Chicken and Waffles before kickoff. It’s easy enough to figure out what to order. Get the classic waffles and fried chicken combination, and down it with the signature Eclipse with orange juice, fruit punch, and lemonade.

Dulan's Soul Food Kitchen

Copy Link

Dulan’s actually has two ideal locations for SoFi Stadium. The one on Manchester is closest to SoFi (indoor seating is coming soon), while the Century Boulevard location maintains ample outdoor seating for guests to settle in and consume the signature giant portions of fried chicken, smothered pork chops, black-eyed peas, and sweet potato pie.

While they don’t serve food at Three Weavers, this Inglewood brewery has outdoor patios that make it very easy to enjoy house-made brews or even a board game before or after a visit to SoFi.

Little Belize Restaurant

Copy Link

There’s a solid Belizean restaurant barely a mile away from SoFi Stadium, where oxtails, peas and rice, plantains, fried panades (the Belizean version of fried empanadas), and beloved coconut tarts are on the menu.

A Family Affair Southern Cuisine

Copy Link

Two best friends with a strong handle on Southern food opened A Family Affair in fall 2021, and it’s the place to go for Cajun salmon, oxtails, mac and cheese, roasted chicken, and everything soul food. It’s also a great place to watch a game, with an outstanding soulful playlist.

Woody's Bar-B-Que

Copy Link

Woody’s is a barbecue beacon in Los Angeles. Located on an Inglewood corner that’s impossible to miss, Woody’s always has a smoke stack billowing from Market Street on the corner of South La Brea. Staff prepare barbecue on brick ovens with oak wood, and use a water hose to keep the fire down, just like founder Woody Phillips did before his death in early 2020.

Sweet Red Peach

Carolyn Plummer’s Sweet Red Peach is directly across the street from SoFi Stadium, and is a great stop for the kids or those with a sweet tooth. Plummer’s specialties include toffee chocolate chip cookies, apple cobblers, cupcakes, and so much more. The red velvet cheesecake will make anyone a fan.

La Fonda of Inglewood Restaurant & Cafe

La Fonda is unfussy, with ample space to watch a game while downing micheladas, beer, or margaritas and eating tacos, burritos, enchiladas, chilaquiles, aguachile, huaraches, tortas, quesadillas, and bowls.

Los Chorros

Open for over 20 years, Los Chorros does pupusas incredibly well. Whether stuffed with chicharron or loroco, order one for a stick-to-the-ribs Salvadorean meal. Also on the menu are the savory or sweet empanadas with plantain, milk custard, and sugar.

Trinistyle Cuisines

A two-mile drive to SoFi Stadium, Trinistyle Cuisines is open Friday through Sunday with a rotating menu of roti, doubles, or a Sunday brunch featuring macaroni pie and callaloo with oxtail or stewed chicken. Call ahead to see what’s available and to place an order.

Ms. B's M&M Soul Food

Copy Link

Ms. B’s owner Beverly Brinson moved her 30-year business to a spacious new location in 2019, where she prepares her Mississippi-inspired soul food menu with all the classics. What’s different at her new location? All of her delicious options are still in place, but the only thing that’s changed is the roomy and covered outdoor dining area.

Coni’Seafood

Copy Link

If avoiding traffic, head to Coni’Seafood. Slightly south of SoFi, Coni’s outdoor patio is ready to feed groups with some of LA’s best mariscos for a pre-game or pre-concert meal.
