Get Some Grub
Food offerings at Nationals Park range from local favorites to typical ballpark fare, with plenty in between. There are, of course, hot dogs, pretzels, popcorn, funnel cakes and the like. People with more adventurous palettes might want to try one of the tacos and burritos at the Capital Cantina on the Concourse Level.
There is some emphasis on local favorites, too, and a couple stand out. Ben’s Chili Bowl is a D.C. landmark, and they have a stand at section 109. And although the chain has now gone national, locals swear by the Five Guys burgers and Cajun fries (section 240).
All of this grub needs to be washed down by something, and there’s a wide selection of domestic and imports available at the park, although locals have complained about the lack of regional micro-brews. Miller and Budweiser beers dominate the domestic scene but there’s also Yuengling and Sam Adams, while imports include Stella Artois, Pilsner Urquell, Heineken, Corona and Guinness.
Of course, all of this food and drink comes at ballpark prices, so if you’d rather shell out money for nicer seats or, say, your kids’ college fund, keep in mind that the Nats do allow people to bring in their own food and drinks. The food must be in clear plastic bags and the soda or water must be in sealed, plastic bottles. Alas, you won’t be able to bring in a six-pack from Capitol City Brewing, sealed or unsealed.
