Barrio Tacos Land Spot in Ohio Stadium
This fall it will be football with a side of tacos at Ohio Stadium. In partnership with sports catering company Levy, Barrio Tacos will open in the main concourse at Section 10A.
“We’re beyond honored to be a part of the traditions of Ohio Stadium. To now add Barrio Tacos to the game day experience for fans is something we couldn’t be more excited about,” says Jason Beudert, partner at Barrio Tacos Columbus. “We’re grateful to Levy and Central Ohio for this opportunity.”
Barrio Tacos will offer a streamlined menu of tacos, chips and dips and margaritas at Ohio Stadium. Barrio Boxes will offer game-goers their choice of two tacos along with guacamole, queso blanco, salsa roja or vegan queso and chips. For the munchies crowd, full-size appetizers of chips and dips are available.
Twenty-ounce house margaritas on the rocks will be the drink du jour, with flavor options available.
Ohio State is aiming for back to business as usual for the 2021 football season.
“Our hope is that we are at full capacity for our football games,” Senior Vice President and Wolfe Foundation Director of Athletics Gene Smith said in a press release. “We will continue to work with our university partners and with Columbus Public Health on all of our safety protocols, including strongly encouraging those who are eligible to get vaccinated.”
OSU’s home opener is Saturday, September 11 versus Oregon. The game is slated for a noon kickoff.
Cleveland-based Barrio Tacos has rapidly expanded its presence in Central Ohio since opening its first area location in Fifth by Northwest in September 2020. The taco joint has announced plans to open its second full-service restaurant at the 15+High development in the University District later this year. Barrio will also have a presence at the new Downtown Crew Stadium, along with a number of other local vendors. The first game at the New Crew Stadium is scheduled for Saturday, July 3.
