Yankee Stadium Food: Three Things To Try
Elsewhere on this site I’ve already covered some Yankee Stadium food, like the amazing Lobel’s steak sandwich and the cheaper sandwiches you can get at the nearby Court Deli, so while those may be great options, you still have some other great choices in the Bronx ballpark.
Here are three that seem to go over pretty well with most fans:
Yankee Stadium Food, Tip #1: The Brother Jimmy’s Pulled Pork Sandwich. Brother Jimmy’s is a NYC chain of North Carolina-style BBQ, which, according to Wikipedia, that it is rubbed with spices before smoking and brushed with spice and vinegar during smoking.
There are four, yes, four outposts of Brother Jimmy’s in Yankee Stadium, so you should be able to find one without venturing too far from your seat. As ballpark BBQ goes, this is as good as any, especially for those who like their BBQ whole hog, Southern-style.
Yankee Stadium Food, Tip #2: Carl’s Philly Cheesesteak. Carl’s is another NYC chain of a food that is more of a staple elsewhere…the Philly cheesesteak. But they have earned their validity with critics; Philadelphia Magazine pronounced them the “Best in Manhattan”.
Indeed, they do a Philly cheesesteak correctly; very thinly shaved sirloin cooked and mixed with peppers and onions as requested…and of course, patrons have the option of American, provolone, and the essential Cheez Whiz.
Carl’s also isn’t bad value, for a ballpark anyway—you get a decent sized cheesesteak. And as you’ll see on the menu, it’s not overwhelming on the calorie meter either.
Yankee Stadium Food, Tip #3: Garlic Fries. They aren’t any particular brand of special potatoes, and by accounts that I’ve heard they’re not as good as the Gilroy garlic fries at AT&T in San Francisco. But if you’re not on a date and you like garlic, these are for you.
The garlic fries at Yankee Stadium are drowned in olive oil and covered with tiny little pieces of garlic…not garlic powder mind you but real minced garlic. You can smell them, believe me. Again, not recommended if you’re on a date, but they’re plenty tasty.
The garlic fries are fairly expensive, so it’s better to get value with the larger version. You can get cheese on them if you want, but don’t get too conflicted in your flavor.
There you go; three very worthwhile food items you can try in your next trip to the home of the 27-time World Champions. But there’s lots more, like the Parm eggplant sandwich, the Johnny Rockets cheeseburger, noodle bowls, party nachos, the list goes on…
That’s how much it cost a family of four to see a Yankees game at Yankee Stadium in 2016, according to the MLB Fan Cost Index.
