The most unique stadium food you'll find in the MLB in 2016
"The Punisher," from Atlanta's Turner Field
That name certainly seems apt, doesn't it? In between those two minuscule buns is a chunk of rib meat that's drenched in barbecue sauce (which has been infused with an energy drink that'll help you stay awake if the game goes to extras) and what appears to be a few onion rings. Then, just for good measure, it looks like the Braves give you a couple pieces of bacon on top of all that. No word on if the calorie count for this meal reaches six digits, though.
"The Burgerizza," also from Atlanta's Turner Field
Two words for fans heading to Braves games this year: Good luck. Not only is Atlanta going to be serving "The Punisher," they'll be rolling out "The Burgerizza" as well. Have you ever eaten a bacon cheeseburger and said to yourself, "Man, this is yummy, but I really, really wish these boring ole buns were pizzas instead?" If so, you're in luck. Eating this and "The Punisher" in a nine-inning span is not recommended.
"The Cracker Jack & Mac Dog," from Pittsburgh's PNC Park
"Buy me some peanuts and cracker jack, then put that cracker jack onto a hot dog along with jalapeños, caramel sauce and macaroni and cheese." Oh wait, that's not how "Take Me Out To The Ball Game" goes? Well, according to the Pirates it is. Other names that were considered for this monstrosity include "The "Random Ingredients Dog" and "The Yeah, We Have No Idea Who Approved This Idea Either Dog."
This bacon cheeseburger filled hot dog, from Arizona's Chase Field
Yes, you read that right. That hot dog (which is fried, by the way) is has a bacon cheeseburger filling inside of it. The Diamondbacks then drizzle it in a secret sauce (heartburn medicine, perhaps?). Figuring out how to fill a hot dog with a cheeseburger has got to be one of the human race's greatest achievements.
"Pot Roast Grilled Cheese," from Miami's Marlins Park
You know the grilled cheese your parents would make you during a cold winter day? This ain't it. The Marlins took the well-known comfort food, then added in a nice pot roast, macaroni and cheese and beer-battered onion rings. It almost has as much going on as the stadium it'll be served in.
"The Wicked Pig," from Texas' Globe Life Park
Like a Prince Fielder home run, this snack from the Rangers goes two decks. Made up of bacon, sausage, ham, pork rinds, coleslaw and prosciutto, fans could probably buy it and have pieces of it for dinner for the next week or so. That saying about how everything's bigger in Texas? Holds true here.
"The Flamin' Hot Cheetos Dog," also from Texas' Globe Life Park
We live in an era of change and innovation, and hot dogs are no exception. Here's one from the Rangers that has spicy Cheetos on top of a spicy-Cheetos infused nacho cheese. It's almost a surprise that the hot dog doesn't have a giant spicy Cheeto inside of it, honestly.
Chicken and waffles on a stick, from Toronto's Rogers Centre
A classic pairing with a stick pierced through it that allows customers to go mobile. It's finished off with a maple sriracha sauce, and also comes with a broccoli and cabbage slaw on the side. A menu option that's worthy of a Joey Bautista bat flip.
"Rocky Mountain Oysters," from Colorado's Coors Field
Let's be clear: These are not really oysters. They are actually the testicles from a bull calf. And they've (somehow) been available at the Rockies Stadium since 1995. That's nuts.
These two behemoths, from Kansas City's Kauffman Stadium
On the left is the Champions Alley Burger (a cheese stuffed and tempura battered cheddar bacon cheeseburger with slaw, chipotle ketchup and a pickle) and on the right is the Champions Alley Dog (it's similar to the burger: a bacon-wrapped, tempura battered hot dog with slaw and chipotle ketchup on a pretzel bun). Not pictured: The food coma that sets in after digesting one of these choices.
A cone of meatballs, from St. Louis' Busch Stadium
Ice cream cones are great, yeah, but where's the meat? The Cardinals have solved that issue, thankfully, with this culinary creation: An Italian bread cone stuffed with four meatballs and sprinkled with a couple of cheeses. Just don't try to eat it for dessert, please.
