Some heavy local hitters will be part of the fun this season at Texans games. NRG Stadium announced Wednesday that The Original Ninfa's on Navigation and Antone's Famous Po' Boys are new to the gameday offerings, while Killen's is adding to its menu, and Chris Shepherd's Underbelly Hospitality is expanding with an item from his soon-to-open steakhouse Georgia James. (Shepherd told us that's slated for a September launch.)

Antone's sandwiches and salads will be available in general concessions, along with a Killen's smoked beef rib, a taco trio using a Flamin' Hot Cheetos chicken breading, and corn dog nachos. Club level attendees will be able to chow on the Georgia James roast tri-tip sandwich, along with fajita tacos and queso from Ninfa's, and Texas takes on popular American sandwiches (smoked meatball sub, jalapeño lobster roll). On the suite level, guests will now get Korean barbecue egg roll lettuce wraps, plus crab cake with elote and a quinoa and lentil salad.

If we had to rate who's getting the best deal here, it's hard to choose between regular concessions and the club level. Ninfa's chips and queso is classic, but when indulging at a football game, Flamin' Hot Cheetos on your chicken has a certain boldness. And Killen's beef ribs? Honestly, the general public has it good.
