The Eater Guide to Dodger Stadium

Start with the Dodger Dog and end with a helmet of soft serve with churros

Baseball season is back, and after a somewhat disappointing 2022 postseason where the Dodgers had to see their division rival the Padres move on, fans have a very different team to look forward to. Longtime Dodger Justin Turner left the team, signing with the Boston Red Sox, while All-Star shortstop Trea Turner signed a massive contract with the Philadelphia Phillies.

Still, the Dodgers brought on former Red Sox slugger J.D. Martinez and added former Angels pitcher Noah Syndergaard, and re-signed future Hall of Fame pitcher Clayton Kershaw back for a one-year deal. Of course, LA’s foundation of Mookie Betts, Freddie Freeman, Max Muncy, Chris Taylor, and Will Smith are all back and ready (sadly Gavin Lux suffered an injury and will be out this year).

One thing fans can rely on is the increasingly interesting food happening at Dodger Stadium. Over the past few years, Levy Restaurants, which operates the concessions, has been adding some compelling dishes that are both well-made and Instagram-worthy. Here now, a complete guide to the food and drinks at Dodger Stadium for the 2023 baseball season.

What’s new at Dodger Stadium for 2023

There are two big additions to the concessions at Dodger Stadium: LA Cheesesteak and LA Grille. The former is basically Philly Cheesesteaks (somewhere out there Trea Turner is smiling about that irony) served on Amoroso rolls with Cheez Whiz. Other options include a wild mushroom Philly sandwich with provolone and a chicken sandwich with mayo and provolone. Do they eat chicken cheesesteaks in Philadelphia? Apparently, Angelenos think they do.

LA Grille serves vaguely Mediterranean fare, including a chicken bowl with basmati rice, hummus, tzatziki, and shredded red cabbage. Diners can opt for falafel with that bowl, or get Greek fries covered with gyro, feta, and olives.

There are a few new dishes at the stands, like a decadent fried cheesecake on a stick, chipotle sausage corndog crusted with hot Cheetos, and a chicken pesto panini. Check the full guide below, broken down into sections, to get the lineup of dishes.
