Carl’s owns the bragging rights to the best cheesesteaks in NYC, and the stand at the stadium does a good job of keeping up. Lines can be long, but the field is visible from where you wait!

Garlic fries are quickly becoming a staple at ballparks ’round the country, and Yankee Stadium gets on board with their own offerings. Sometimes the guy making them can be overzealous and dump a bit too much of the butter-garlic mixture, resulting in soggy fries, but for every time he gets the ratio right, you’ll be in garlic heaven. Enjoy these but not on a date.

Great Hall, between Gates 4 and 6

The Torrisi sandwich spot boasts a location as soon as you enter Yankee Stadium; the offerings are small, but the taste is big with a turkey sandwich (the best seller that day) or a meatball parm. The meatball sandwich is a meatball the size of a baseball, pressed flat on a roll, served with mozzarella and sauce… and is a home run.

You may scoff at steak at a ball park, but there are others eating sushi, so why not steak? The secret here is the steak is freshly sliced, while your bun is dipped in jus, and fresh horseradish is offered with this prime rib sandwich. The meat is so tender that you can bite right through the not-thin slices, and you will almost forget you’re balancing the sandwich on your lap as you watch the Yankees pound another team into submission.

A Nathan’s foot long at Yankee Stadium is a tradition – they’re not available everywhere, but they are oh so good and oh so right for a day at the ball park. Top ’em with whatever you like!

Various locations around the stadium

On a hot day, what could be better than a Yankees helmet cup of soft serve, topped with sprinkles? Pro tip: don’t wear a Mets jersey – to a Subway Series game, no less – and expect to get too many sprinkles. You can see the result of doing that in the photo!

Third base, field level

As much a part of New York baseball as World Series rings, the classic New York street food of sausage and peppers makes a winning appearance here with Premio. Your choice of sweet or spicy, you can’t go wrong either way.
