Lineup

Press Dining Review

  • I always look forward to day games because there’s a possibility the kitchen staff might serve breakfast food. Today was the closest I’ve been to a breakfast meal, but I’d still classify this as lunch. The sweetness of the fresh fruit side dish was a nice change of pace. The smoked sausage/bean bowl was a little heavy on the salt, but overall it was a decent meal and surprisingly filling. Cracker Jacks didn’t really excite me, so I opted not to get a dessert. The snack shack doesn’t close until 2:30, so I might head back to get some ice cream dessert if that’s available though.
  • RATING: 7.5/10
