The Oakland A’s have an outstanding team this year, and with that comes an outstanding food lineup. No matter if you are a diehard fan or a once in a while visitor, there are a few food vendors here that need to be checked off of your “to-try” list. Having gotten a food frenzied makeover in more recent years, here are our top five eats at the Oakland Coliseum.
1. Pork Ribs
Possibly one of the best places to grab a bite to eat is at BBQ Ribs and Things. Serving up fresh, hot BBQ that will leave you licking your fingers it’s so tasty, you have to try their pork ribs. Delicate, tender, and mouth watering good, you won’t be able to go back to the traditional ballpark frank anytime soon. They also offer a variety of combos, and their potato salad is a shoo-in as well. You can’t go wrong with anything you order at BBQ Ribs and Things!
2. Burritos (and more!)
The Burrito District has a smorgasbord of just about every traditional and non-traditional ballpark food you can think of. Whether you are on the hunt for a margarita, daiquiri, nachos, tacos, or burritos, they have all their bases covered. The main eat here is their massive burrito which comes with the usual burrito fillers (sour cream, beans, cheese, the works!) and then your choice of chicken or beef. Grab a drink and an oversized burrito and you’ll be set for the rest of the game.
Saag’s Specialty Meats and Sausages is an extremely popular food vendor among A’s fans. Serving up hot and fresh meat specialties at each game, one food that any A’s fan needs to try here is their bratwurst. Just as a brat should be-fat and juicy-you can top it with veggies or sharp sauerkraut. Be prepared to guard it though, your friends will be all over your delicious brat!
4. Wood Fired Pizza
The view of the field from Westside Pub Bar and Grill is second to none, but what’s even better? The Wood Fired Pizza they make fresh for each customer. This hot, cheesy slice of pizza pie is a delight for any A’s fan looking to get an outstanding view of the game from the Westside Pub Bar and Grill.
5. Polish Dog
A run of the mill ballpark food stand, A’s stands out by serving up food fresh when you order it. The real feature here? Their Polish Dog. Stuffed in a bun and layered with onions, relish, ketchup and mustard, it’s a fantastic ballpark tradition that keeps fans coming back again and again.
So, what’s on your list? From traditional hot dogs to fresh wood fired pizzas made to order, even the pickiest eater can be satisfied at the Oakland Coliseum. Next time you hit the arena to see an outstanding game from the Oakland A’s, make sure you grab a bite to eat from one of these five delicious vendors.
