There should be a sign warning tourists to Oriole Park at Camden Yards: “Eat the crab cakes at your own risk.” Native “Baltimorons” – that’s said with affection – rarely eat them at a baseball game. Why? They know better. There are plenty of places around town that’ll put the OPCY crab cakes to shame, and plenty of other good eats at the park as long as you know what you’re doing.
The stadium features grilled hot dogs, sausages, deli sandwiches, Baseball sliders (mini hamburgers), healthy salads and “Boardwalk” french fries. The Orioles have a kosher vending stand for those interested.
But for the #1 culinary experience at the park, head towards the billowing smoke beyond right-center field. That’d be Boog’s Barbeque. The sweet aroma from the barbequed pork and beef hangs heavy on a hot and humid summer night. It’s named for former Oriole great Boog Powell, and he’s likely to be on hand signing autographs.
If money is no concern, you might try the Camden Club for a nice sit-down dinner. It’s located inside the warehouse that overlooks right field… and yes, you can order the wonderful crab cakes there.
Looking for a bargain? The All-You-Can-Eat section offers fans the convenience of an all-inclusive package. For as little as $40 fans receive a seat in the Left Field Club Level and an All-You-Can-Eat pass for the concession stands located directly behind the section. Menu items include hot dogs, nachos, peanuts, popcorn, ice cream, soda and lemonade… but no beer.
Another money-saver is to purchase your food on the outside, where a hot dog, bag of peanuts and a soda go for about $5; they same thing will run you twice that inside the park. And the Orioles have one of the most lenient policies pertaining to carry-in food and drinks. Small, soft-sided coolers are permitted at Oriole Park, although no glass bottles or alcoholic beverages are allowed. So bring your own if you’re on a budget.
After you’ve belted out a chorus of “Country Boy” during the seventh-inning stretch, take a walk over to the first base concession area and look for Uncle Teddy’s. There you’ll find fresh baked, hand rolled pretzels. Try one of these dipped in cinnamon and sugar to put a finishing touch on a great day at the ballpark.
