McMahon is filled with concession stands that offer fans a lot more than just fan favourites such as hot dogs and popcorn. We work hard to bring delicious food to fans. Cheering is hard work, and we want to make sure you’re fuelled right to take part in the spirit of fun and love for the CFL. To help you narrow down your choices, here’s our guide to some of the best grub at McMahon.

Smoked Beef Brisket

When we say we’ve worked hard to bring delicious food to you, we weren’t lying. The brisket is slow smoked for 22 hours. Yes, you read that right. Smoked over mesquite charcoal and Applewood, this melt-in-your-mouth brisket is a touchdown in our books. Find it at the smoker in the northeast concourse by Section M.

Jalapeno Popper Footlong 

This all-beef footlong is a winner. We definitely had a go big or go home mentality when thinking of toppings. Along with the works, it’s topped with cream cheese sauce, bacon, and crispy jalapenos. Make your way to Pigskins in the northeast corner by Section M.

Pocket Dawg 

For those of you who have never had this stadium delicacy, please, do yourself a favour next time you’re at McMahon and go to Pocket Dawg. This fan favourite is a warm and toasty French baguette stuffed with a giant dog. You’ll have to choose your Dawg topper beforehand as the condiments go in first. Choose between ranch, nacho cheese, ketchup, mustard, or a combination. Then choose your dawg:Original, Spicy, Bacon & Cheddar, or Bratwurst.

Baby Back Pork Ribs 

The Baby Back Pork Ribs from The Smoker is a dish you’ll want to get messy for. These fall-off-the-bone ribs are coated with a sweet and tangy BBQ sauce. If that wasn’t enough, everything is served with house-made coleslaw and bacon cheddar jalapeno cornbread. They smoke a variety of meat, so if you’re not feeling ribs, just ask them what else they’ve got in the smoker!

Everything is done to mouth-watering perfection. Just follow your nose to the northeast concourse by Section M.

Pillow Donuts

This new addition to our fare is everything you think it is and more. These light and fluffy pillows of fried dough are sprinkled with cinnamon sugar and served with Nutella sauce. It’s the sweet, sweet end you’ve been waiting for – almost as sweet as a game victory. Find these by The Smoker and order ’em up before you head to your seat.


Some would argue that a game isn’t complete without a ice-cold beer. We have you covered with Molson Canadian and Coors Light draught on tap! The best part is that beers and drinks can now be purchased with a one-step transaction. Gone are the days of drink tickets.

Now that you’re properly fed and hydrated, it’s time to put that energy to good use. Cheer your face off for the reigning Grey Cup Champs – Go Stamps Go!
