Baseball season is upon us. That means there are all sorts of classic and newly invented ballpark foods to gorge yourself on. Over the last half-decade, stadium foods have moved away from the old-school standards of peanuts, dirty water dogs, and cheap domestic beers and into more fanciful, local, and often bombastic fare. Some stadiums have leaned into the you-know-it’s-terrible-for-you territory, while others have embraced local eats to give baseball fans an authentic taste of the cities they’re visiting.
Below are some of our favorite picks for the 2017 MLB season:
CHRONIC TACOS — ANGEL STADIUM ANAHIEM, CA
Chronic Tacos prides itself on “recipes passed down for three generations.” It’s Orange County’s answer to Chipotle. The tacos, burritos, and bowls are completely customizable with a much deeper menu including fish, shrimp, and al pastor — and it’s all tasty as hell.
