During the back-to-back home opener weekend, SeatGeek Stadium saw the debut of Taco Madre and Sporty Chicken!

Sporty Chicken

Recently founded by nationally renowned Chef Art Smith in combination with Lady Gaga and Papa Gaga, Sporty Chicken aims to bring high-quality dishes to sports stadiums. Chef Smith served as a personal chef to Lady Gaga, competed on Iron Chef America, BBQ Pitmasters, Chopped All Stars, and has cooked for political figures including former Florida governors and Michelle Obama. Chef Smith has become a co-owner of the Chicago Hounds and will bring his delicious southern style cuisine to SeatGeek Stadium at every Hounds home game! Fans who attended the home opener can testify to the tasty fried chicken and fried beef sandwiches served out of the Sporty Chicken food truck during the entertaining pregame tailgate!

Taco Madre
