Forget the peanuts and cracker jack. There are much more memorable stadium foods to nosh on while watching your favorite baseball team. It doesn’t matter if you bleed Yankee blue or transformed one of the walls in your apartment into your own “Green Monster.” There’s one thing that every baseball fan can agree on: everything tastes better at the ballpark. Here are our favorite baseball stadium eats for 2016.
New York City | Citi Field
The 108 Burger features six ounces of LaFrieda ground beef topped with hot, hand-sliced pastrami and Havarti cheese. It’s served on a pretzel roll with deli mustard. For dessert, try the Peanut Butter Pretzel Coated Thick Cut Bacon on a Stick.
New York City | Yankee Stadium
What do you get when you stack fried chicken, a cheeseburger and hash browns on a pretzel bun? They call it the Barnyard Wedding at Yankee Stadium. Be sure to grab a beverage while you’re at the concession stand to toast the happy marriage.
Los Angeles |Dodger Stadium
Hot dogs are always a staple when watching a baseball game, but the franks served at Dodger Stadium put a modern twist on a classic food. Some of the many varieties to choose from include:
- Deep-fried Dodger Dog
- Frito Pie Dog
- Doyer Dog (served with chili, jalapeños, cheese and Pico de Gallo)
- Bacon-wrapped Dogs
Boston | Fenway Park
How do marinated steak tips smothered with BBQ sauce and cheese sound, all sandwiched in a crusty roll? Delish. The Savenor’s Steak Tip Sandwich is the latest offering at Fenway Park. It’s not as crazy as some ball park offerings, but that’s OK with us—and our arteries.
Washington DC | Nationals Park
The Nats held a competition to add local vendors to their stadium lineup, and one of the winners, Pinch Dumplings, are sure to be a fast favorite with fans. Or grab a chicken parm and cauliflower sandwich so you can tell that certain someone that you ate your vegetables.
