Get ready for game time! Visit Roche Bros. for a complete assortment of Tasty Tailgating offerings, fresh and ready for your whole team at home. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the game with all of these choices on the menu.

As the party kicks off, everyone loves chips and dips, especially when there are many flavors on the table. Feature our fresh guacamole, 7 Layer Dip,  Buffalo Chicken Dip, and Spinach & Artichoke Dip, with crackers, chips, and fresh cut veggies, available in the produce department.

Offer a wide array of finger-food favorites, including chicken tenders and stuffed potato skins, with three types of fillings, buffalo chicken, BBQ pork or bacon & cheddar.

Add a Tasty Tailgating Snack Platter from the deli department to your game day fare! With four choices of platters that feature the high-quality deli meat and cheeses from Dietz & Watson and other popular brands of cheeses and snacks, we have something for any preference: All American, Italian, International or Vegetarian.

Make your finger food spicy and fun with our Build Your Own Nacho Kits, with pre-cooked seasoned ground beef, homemade chips and all the fixings!

Football season is prime time for wings, and now is the time to try Our Kitchen’s new antibiotic-free jumbo chicken wings. Choose from a rotating variety of flavors including: Buffalo, Golden BBQ, Honey BBQ, Carolina BBQ, Maple, Maple Bourbon, Sweet Teriyaki, Sweet and Sour, and Honey Stung Monster Wings.

A long-time staple for tailgating, our Bakery’s Bloomin’ Bread is loaded with mozzarella and pepperoni, and ready for your guests to pull apart.

At half-time, our Certified Angus Prime burgers and sliders are ready to feed your crowd.  Switch things up by serving them in our special flavors, such as the Cracked Pepper, Bacon N’ Cheddar, Onion & Pepper, or the mouthwatering 50/50 Bacon & Prime Beef Burger.

Italian sausage or marinated steak or chicken tips are also crowd pleasers. Grill them up and finish them off with fresh cut onions and peppers, ready to go in produce.

Or turn your tailgating party into a barbecue without turning on the grill. Our BBQ Pulled Pork and St. Louis Ribs are tangy, flavorful, and ready to heat and serve. Add our deli’s coleslaw or homemade potato salad to complete the meal.

Visit the seafood department for a Football Shrimp Cocktail Platter. We arrange our fresh cocktail shrimp with slices of lemon and plenty of tangy, spicy cocktail sauce on a tray that’s ready to serve. Or serve up our spicy Buffalo Shrimp Dip or original Jonah Crab Dip.

Finish the party off with desserts from Our Bakery! Football Whoopie Pies are a sweet and festive addition to your spread. And don’t miss our new S’mores Pie, melting with chocolate and marshmallows. Heat it up in the oven or on the grill!

We hope to see you every weekend during football season to help with all your tailgating party needs. Enjoy the season, and of course, go Pats!
