Football season is here, which can mean only one thing for the Southern foodie. Time to start planning your tailgate! These tradition-bathed events are characterized by whirlwind socializing and of course, plenty of good food and tall drinks. While Bloody Mary’s and barbecue are tailgating staples, how about serving some dips that will add a new twist to your traditional spread?

We consulted John Glenn and Joe Good, tailgating experts from Charleston’s Fat & Juicy, for some dip insight and they offered us some exciting options to put on the table this football season. Their Crosstown Bean Dip and Sausage Queso Dip are the perfect appetizers to snack on while you cheer on your team. Serve these up at your next tailgate, and trust us—the crowd will go wild.
