Brother Jimmy’s BBQ

Reviews & more info

A winningly juicy, suits watching your pennant-winning team swing on. Condiments make the grade: an excellent slaw and rich, tangy BBQ dip for the pork. But the “fickles” might have an equal number of enthusiasts. Apparently the combination of friend and pickle have just the right amount of crunch outside and green inside.

Carl’s Steaks

Best cheesesteaks outside of Philly. You can even do extra Cheez Wiz, double order of hot peppers and onions. Some claim there is a big difference between the stadium Carl’s and the Manhattan Carl’s, in Murray Hill.

Garlic Fries

The chicken fingers are crispy on the outside, moist on the in. Sundry fries, including garlic fries and cheese fries are yummy. The garlic fries are intense and ought to come with mints—but that’s a good thing.

La Esquina Latina

Nacho aficionados will appreciate Moe’s Southwest Grill Billy Barou Nachos. You get an impressive amount of crisp nachos topped with a messy but gorgeous mix of savory ground beef, salsa, a white cheese sauce, olives, jalapenos, sour cream and guacamole.

A steak sandwich from Lobel’s is simple but spares no important detail: After you order, watch Lobel cut your juicy—not fatty—meat, then dredge it in its jus before placing it on a plush, eggy bun. We strongly recommend fresh horseradish as a topping.

Nathan’s Famous

Nathan's famous hot dogs are the only hot dogs to eat at Yankee Stadium.
Reviews & more info

A Nathan’s corn dog and a side of crinkle cut fries with honey mustard on the side—will stand you well.

Noodle Bowls/Sushi Stand

 Best Yankee Stadium Eats

Third base, field level

Either the Tofu or the Chicken Pan Fried Noodle Bowl is aromatic and delicious: tasty noodles, fresh chicken or tofu pieces, green and red peppers, broccoli, and bok choy.


premio Best Yankee Stadium Eats

Third base, field level

Premio sausages are great, but when they’re the spicy kind and cooked up with onions, and green and sweet red peppers, they really make sense.

    Thirty five dollars to park, ten dollar beers, twenty dollars for the steak sandwich ! These games are no longer affordable for the average family ! Corporate greed has killed the baseball.

    Who in the world goes to a ball game and eats sushi! I love sushi but sitting in the hot sun, with raw fish? Ummmm, does anyone else think “food poisoning”?

    Greg are you new? Food at every sporting/entertainment is grossly overpriced.
