Two cities where the signature food item is essentially a great big pile of meat topped PETA's list of most vegetarian-friendly stadiums.

For the fourth straight year, the Eagles' Lincoln Financial Field — in the city that invented the cheesesteak — topped the rankings by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals. Kansas City's Arrowhead Stadium was second.

The organization cited the Linc's vegetarian hoagie, a faux-steak sandwich and veggie dogs among the "exceptional" options.

At Arrowhead, in one of the country's top barbecue cities, the stadium menu features veggie dogs, veggie burgers and a spicy vegan "Sloppy Jane." Naturally, they come with barbecue sauce.

Completing the top five were the Oakland Raiders' O.co Coliseum, with it meat-free chili, vegan chocolate fondue; the Detroit Lions' Ford Field, with its grilled veggie wrap, meat-free barbecue sandwich in premium seating; and the San Diego Chargers' Qualcomm Stadium, with its portabella carpaccio sandwich.
