Best Ballpark Food
Along with two World Series championships for the home team, Citizens Bank Park was awarded Best Ballpark Eats from Food Network, was ranked among the best ballpark food by USA Today, and PETA consistently puts it among the top ten vegetarian and vegan parks.
You can cram a whole week’s worth of iconic Philadelphia foods into a beautiful nine-inning symphony spent dancing around the concourses of Citizens Bank Park. The power move is to carb load with Chickie’s & Pete’s famous Crabfries (those plump and golden crinkle cut fries, dusted with Old Bay and served with their signature melted American cheese sauce) — sorry newbies, there is no actual crab here — and wash them down with a cold Philly Pale Ale from hyper-local Yards Brewing. Other traditional foodie favorites include: Campo’s hoagies (a multi-meated sandwich with a history in Philadelphia), and cheesesteaks from the legendary Tony Lukes, Rita’s Water Ice, Federal Donuts, Hatfield Grill and Bull’s BBQ.
Pass and Stow, named after the makers of the Liberty Bell, is the stadium’s newest hangout and features the first Shake Shack inside a ballpark, plus Goose Island Brewhouse, a casual outdoor beer garden pouring up hoppy suds brewed less than a mile away. (Pro Tip: Head out to Ashburn Alley, in the center field bleachers, and take in all the sights and smells next to the bronzed statue of Richie Ashburn, the team’s greatest center fielder).
Recent additions have brought some shore favorites to the Boardwalk Eats concession (think ice cream and caramel corn) and there are plenty of healthy options such as the new Vegan Cauliflower Cheesesteak at Harry the K’s (a late beloved announcer) Broadcast Bar and Grill. And, there is a gluten-free dedicated stand. A fan favorite are special nights deemed Hatfield Dollar Dog night —-as the name suggests, hot dogs are only a dollar.
