Heading out to Dodger Stadium for the All-Star Game? Or just wondering what to eat the next time you attend a Dodgers game? You will have plenty of choices.

The food and beverages offered at every U.S. ballpark have evolved to cater to the local fan base. MLB teams have stepped it up in the fan experience when it comes to dining at the ballpark. Yes, you still can eat your traditional hot dog and peanuts, however, each team has diversified its menu that resonates with the fan base and city, and hopefully to attract a new wave of baseball fans.

Dodger Stadium is no exception. The ballpark is known for its famous 10-inch Dodger Dog. But did you know that the ballpark also offers dessert nachos and spiral potatoes?

Looking through a list of everything offered can look intimidating. However, we picked the meals, treats, and drinks that stand out on paper and are visually appealing. Here are some of the traditional and creative (daring) dishes to try out at Dodger Stadium:

There are plenty of meat and plant options that can be found at most other ballparks. Here are some options that can only be found at Dodger Stadium:

Fans who want a plant-based option are in luck because there’s the Plant-Based Dodger Dog. The Dodgers partnered with Greenleaf Foods SPC to make Field Roast the supplier of the plant-based option.
