Opening Day is approaching, which means hungry sports fans will be making pilgrimages to support their favorite teams. But forget peanuts and Cracker Jacks—today’s stadium fare seems like it’s on steroids, becoming edible spectacles that have some enthusiasts traveling to watch other teams just to have a taste.
From the five-pound, salsa-chip-chili-doused burger at Michigan’s Fifth Third Ballpark to the pulled-pork-and-mashed-potato parfait at the Milwaukee Brewers’ Miller Park, The Daily Meal—the site that houses all things food and drink—has found the 15 Craziest Stadium Foods.
Here’s a taste of these wild, culinary creations:
- Supreme Helmet Nachos, Miami Marlins’ Marlins Park—In addition to a brand-new stadium, the Miami Marlins have a new piled-high, crazy snack: the Supreme Helmet Nachos. It’s what it sounds like, only bigger—a helmet full of nachos that are covered in salsa, jalapeños, chili, cheese, and green sauce.
- Frito Pie Dog, Chicago Cubs’ Wrigley Field— Frito pie might be a Southern (and specifically Texan) thing, but that hasn’t stopped Chicagoans from making it their own at Wrigley Field. Their Frito Pie Dog is a hot dog smothered with beef chili, shredded Cheddar cheese, and the pièce de résistance, Fritos.
- Chicken & Waffles, Cleveland Indians’ Progressive Field— Someone at Progressive Field gave sandwiches a much-needed update. Why use bread when you can use waffles? They serve their fried chicken flanked with big fluffy waffles, which is then topped with powdered sugar.
- Victory Knot, Los Angeles Dodgers’ Dodger Stadium—This ballpark snack, originally served at Dodger Stadium, has become so popular that more than a handful of other stadiums have started serving it to their loyal fans as well. It is the Victory Knot — a two-pound gourmet soft pretzel topped with sea salt and served in a pizza box with three dipping sauces: spicy mustard, beer cheese, and sweet cream cheese.
