Wursthaus Schmitz serves a grill pack for groups of six to eight for $59.95 and a larger pack for $115.95 which serves 12 to 15 people. The Grill Pack includes everything you need for a tasty tailgating party including sides like potato and cucumber salad.

Arrive Early!

Eagles fans are serious about tailgating and you should be too. Fans have been known to start the tailgating as early as 8:00 a.m. on game days! The parking lot at Lincoln Field opens 5 hours before game time. A great way to get there, especially if you are planning to drink, is to take advantage of public transit. SEPTA’s Broad Street Line goes right to Lincoln Financial Field directly from Center City. If you’re staying at The Independent Hotel, we’re conveniently located near the Walnut-Locust stop on the Broad Street line.
