All of Los Angeles County is crazy about sports. L.A. is home to two football teams, two basketball teams, and two baseball teams (sort of).
Of all the cities in Los Angeles County, Inglewood makes a good case for the biggest sports town around. SoFi Stadium opened last year and is home to both the Chargers and the Rams. It will also host the 2028 Summer Olympics.
Whether you are watching live or at home, two things that go great with sports are beer and food. The good news is that Inglewood is a great place for both of those things.
Here are four great places to eat and drink close to SoFi Stadium.
Hilltop Coffee + Kitchen
If you need a caffeine fix to make it through an entire game, Hilltop Coffee + Kitchens has you covered. Their menu contains an extensive list of coffee and tea options.
If you're hungry, they've got you covered as well. They have a delicious breakfast sandwich and burrito. They also have shrimp tacos, a crispy chicken sandwich, a tuna melt, and many other great options.
Hilltop Coffee + Kitchen also has locations in Eagle Rock and Slauson.

They aim to do this by using the highest quality and freshest ingredients. Sunday Gravy puts a significant emphasis on the positive social effect provided by great food, drink, and conversation.

Some people will laugh at putting a fast food place on a list like this. But let's be honest, a burger, fries, and soda go great before or after a game. Fast food is also great comfort food after your team suffers a tough loss.
In-N-Out is the most iconic in Southern California as far as fast food goes. Few places can compete with a good animal-style double-double.

Sunday: 10:30 am- 1 am
