Tampa Bay-based PDQ, RumFish Grill among new options for Bucs home opener at Raymond James

There's also a new Nike shop if you eat too much and need a new jersey.

Raymond James Stadium's menu is stepping it up this football season thanks to the Tampa Bay Buccaneer's partnership with hospitality service Legends, which is managing the team's concessions and restaurant dining. 

The lineup of new offerings include Pizza Box Nachos, veggie Cuban sandos, plus typical game day eats like hot dogs, corn dogs and fat burgers (save room for the decadent red velvet cannoli cupcakes). 

The stadium also welcomes new outside food vendors including Tampa-based PDQ (crowned the official chicken tender of the Buccaneers), and St. Pete Beach seafood joint RumFish Grill (headquartered at the Tradewinds Resort). 

But wait, there's more. The Bucs are relaunching last year's hit Local Chef Showcase featuring signature dishes from some of the top chefs and restaurants around the Bay area. Sunday's September 8 home opener against the San Francisco 49ers welcome's Chef Gino Tiozzo (Donatello Italian Restaurant) to show off his culinary muscle.

All that eating may warrant a size up when it comes to your jersey, but the Bucs, along with new apparel shop manager Fanatics, have fans covered (literally) thanks to new team shops like the Nike concept store.

Even on the toughest of game days, with these new offerings, the fans will never lose. Keep your greasy fingers crossed for some overtime action.
