KANSAS CITY, Mo. (WIBW) -- The Kansas City Chiefs home opener Sunday not only features the 1st place team in the AFC West and the NFL’s reigning MVP, but also some of the wildest sandwiches the folks behind the concession stand could dream up – including one that pays tribute to City of Fountains.

Their new State Line BBQ Stack piles a whole BBQ meal all onto a cheesy corn bun.

“We really wanted to do something that was very Kansas City, and we landed on a mixed plate,” explained Chef Erin Wilson.

Paying tribute to Kansas City’s love for good barbeque, the sandwich is filled with turkey, pork, and brisket. But, what’s a good BBQ without the fixings? All that meat’s topped with baked beans, slaw kielbasa, pork belly, and jalapenos.

"It has a little bit of everything, and the skewer there at the top makes things fun.”

Who needs doughnut buns when you can have waffles!

“With our waffle concept, we really just wanted to offer something different and a different flavor profile,” Wilson said.

The Monte Cristo stacks gruyere, prosciutto, turkey, and, of course, 100 percent maple syrup; batters it, fries it, and serves up a sweet and salty snack. Meanwhile, the BBQ Brisket sandwich tops the brisket with jalapenos and bacon and stuffs it all in a sweet potato waffle for “some nice balance there.”

If all that meat’s too much, you can try a new take on your standard wings – cauliflower. Wilson says the new wings will be on the menu at The Coop and says they’re “a great option.”

CommunityAmerica Club Level treats

Arrowhead adds a little twist to a spicy sausage. Dressing up with sautéed onions and putting it on a hoagie roll, its special ingredient is “the cool cream cheese.” The green onion sauce is “fantastic,” Chef Leo Dominguez assures. They will be featured at the Community Club Level.

If you feel like sharing, the Gridiron Nacho Grande mixes home-made meats with the stadium favorite and puts it all in a Chiefs-branded, football-shaped box that can be taken home after the game.

But save some room for dessert, Dominguez said he wanted to prove a bit of a “wow factor” with an “Arrowhead-sized ice cream sandwich.”

The only question is what will be higher at the end of the game: the number of calories you ate or the number yards Mahomes threw for.

If you can't make it the game - and plan to make your own game time dishes - don't forget you can watch the Chiefs take on the Baltimore Ravens at noon right here on WIBW-TV.
