MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — After shelling out thousands of dollars for tickets to Super Bowl LIV, fans of the 49ers and Chiefs will have to shell out quite a bit more to grab a bite or a drink at Hard Rock Stadium.
A burger? That’s $16. A personal pizza or a bucket of popcorn? That’s $15 a pop. A double cocktail? That’ll run you $24.
The prices are a return to reality after fans were spoiled during last year’s Super Bowl in Atlanta, which prides itself on offering the most affordable prices for concessions. A burger at that game cost just $5. But Miami is no Atlanta.
The food menu is costly no matter what you’re looking for. A chicken sandwich is $14. A hot dog is $12. Nachos are $9. Want some cheese with that? That’ll be $3 extra.
One bright spot – a 32-ounce soft drink costs $15, but those come with free refills.
Things get even more pricey at the dozens of stands selling beer, wine and cocktails.
A glass of wine is $13. A can of domestic beer is $14, an imported one is $15, and the big boy – a 19.2-ounce can of premium beer – is $18. A basic cocktail will run you $18, but many will likely opt for the double, which is only $6 more.
