Football and food have gone hand and hand for many years now! Many sports bars across the country pride themselves in serving good food, while their customers enjoy football at their facility, well Rocco’s is no different. Just recently, burgeoning Rocco’s Tavern has partnered with former Ram great Eric Dickerson. They have recently introduced new food concepts commemorating the Hall of Famer’s record-breaking accomplishments.
Eric’s achievements throughout his illustrious career captured the minds of sports fan across America. Whether it was leading the ‘Pony Express’ to national prominence, or establishing the NFL’s Rookie Rushing Record, or even setting the NFL’s Single Season Rushing Record that following season. Dickerson’s game set himself apart from any competition. Each of those records still stands nearly 35 five years later!
“29 at Rocco’s Tavern” was introduced to the patrons of Rocco’s Tavern at the beginning of football season. Rocco’s Tavern introduced the new concept dubbed “29 at Rocco’s Tavern,” in commemoration to Rams Running Back Eric Dickerson, who wore #29 throughout his Hall of Fame NFL career. This new concept can be found at each of Rocco’s location throughout the southland including Studio City, Westwood, Culver City, Old Town Pasadena, as well as the 901 Bar & Grill.
Even with all his accomplishments, Dickerson still sees himself as a young boy that he was growing up in Sealy, Texas. Most of the new concepts have been catered to the dishes he grew up with. A fired red snapper dish with fries and Texas cold slaw called Sealy Texas Snapper. Fried shrimp with fires and Texas Slaw. They will have a new 29 Burger, which is swiss cheese, spicy mustard, red onions, and tomato, and a classic Pony Express Pizza made up off cheese, pepperoni, sausage, and Jalapenos. Also being introduced is a dish of spicy chicken wings will be called “2105,” now everyone will know the exact Single Season Rushing Record Dickerson set years ago.
The So Cal Rams Booster Club will also be a part of the partnership additionally Rams fans from all across Southern California can join the Booster Club and other Rams fans at either “29 at Rocco’s Tavern” locations. Traditional food and beverages will be available for other NFL fans as well. All other NFL games can be seen as every Rocco’s Tavern each week.
“Who better to partner with than the greatest football player in Los Angeles history.” said Rocco’s co-owner Leo Amari “If we consider ourselves the premier sports bar in the Los Angeles area.” Dickerson graciously mentioned that “I am thrilled to be associated with a sports bar as prominent as Rocco’s Tavern,” he said. “To think that food combinations I helped dream up will be served to the greatest football fans in the United States, it doesn’t get any better than this.”
Currently working as Vice President of Business Development for the Los Angeles Rams Dickerson, in addition to being an NFL analyst for FS1/FOX national TV, is gracious about this opportunity to develop these new food concepts. These new dishes will be available throughout the remainder of the football season at every Rocco’s locations throughout Southern California.
