Summer baseball games bring to mind footlong hotdogs slathered with mustard, relish & ketchup, frosty beer, buttery popcorn, salty pretzels, and boxes of cracker jacks. These days, many stadiums offer a lot more than that. Indeed, Eater SF recently wrote an article on What to Eat at the Coliseum!
The Coliseum’s Three Standouts
Kinder’s BBQ: The Famous Ball Tip sandwich here is a crowd pleaser with it’s juicy slices of barbecued sirloin dressed in Kinder’s smoky BBQ sauce -- a sauce that has won numerous awards just for being delicious, and was raved about by the NY Times food critic Peter Meehan. [Field Level]
Ribs and Things: Fans make a beeline for this BBQ stand every season for their tender pork ribs and moist tri-tip with tangy BBQ sauce. This pit-stop is often regarded as the only place worth eating at in the stadium. [Field Level]
Saag’s Club Level: Polish, sweet Italian, atomic hot, linguisa or a bratwurst. The sausage options are many here -- all of them best-topped with a generous heap of grilled onions and green peppers. Saag's fare is far better than the stadium’s other underwhelming dogs. [Plaza Level]
- Burger Shack: Cheeseburgers, french fries and Texas grilled cheese sandwiches.
- Cheese Steak/Fish-n-Chips: A selection of cheese steak sandwiches, fried fish and french fries.
- Chicken and Fries: A place to find your standard fried chicken tenders.
- Ice Cream: A selection of ice cream bars and sandwiches.
- Red’s All Star Smoke House: BBQ Brisket, pork and chicken.
- Rosa’s Fresh Mexican Grill: Here they serve burritos, as well as the burrito bowl. Jumbo margaritas available to drink.
