I have been to multiple Angel, Dodger and Laker games this year and I have to say the food at all venues is seriously bad. As a lifetime Dodger fan it’s hard to dis the dodger dog, but honestly I get a better dog at the turn of my local golf course. At this point we usually eat somewhere else before or after the game.

So the question is: do you like the food options provided by your local sports teams? If so what team and what do you like?

I'm hoping their level of play remains consistent throughout the weekend Wink

funny story, we'd just left Staples and my buddy and i got one of those dogs... he had a couple beers in him and dropped his dog, right there off Figueroa... he calls 3 second rule and picks it back up Eek even the vendor lady was like, "no! no! i'll give you another one!" and he eats the damn thing...

Great story kumazam. It cracked me up reading it! Big Grin
I second the food at Camden yards, it's pretty good. But, like PH pointed out, there are so many great options nearby we usually just have a beer and a hot dog at the game to hold us over for a late dinner!

Before moving to Baltimore I was a season ticket holder at Comerica Park (Detroit). The food was OK, I've heard it's gotten better.
I've found in my travels that almost any of the new stadiums offer food way better than the old guard (BTW, D'V'D, those garlic fries are killer). My biggest problem is the linking of premium tix pricing to access to special eating areas - where you pay extra just to get into the concourse area to pay again for the special food.

Here on home turf in St Louis, our new stadium has some nice options, but man, they have perfected the art of emptying the wallet - baseball is no longer the cheap sport. Our field level seats are in the $45 range, then parking close is $10-20, and couple weeks ago, three dogs, one nachos, two large beers and two bottled waters came to the high $40s. So, when I take the kids using 4 tix, that would easily be a $300 baseball game if I weren't using work tickets. Kinda depressing when you think about the average joe taking the family to a game.

Totally agree, plus, when I go to a ballpark I'm not expecting fine dining, sometimes the greasy, overcooked food can hit the spot.
