I'm posting this because it's newsworthy, and not so specifically because I'm pining for another forum debate on Ballpark Food vs BYO Food vs Tailgate Food. It's a nice feather in the cap of the organization.

Remember: the Brewers never panic like you do.

I'll be that guy...

Well at least the concession folks get to hang a banner this year.

I guess if you like 30 different stands to get tacos & AJ Bombers. The "new concessions experience" must really suck everywhere else. I'm not impressed by the updates.

I loved the new layout. A LOT. The food I got though was really lacking every time though.

It looks nice. I gave up getting a pretzel. Everyone I had was cold.

When you spend all that money on concessions they should win the award for best new concessions.

I did like the new setup and organization of the concessions. You can tell they spent a lot of money on it by what happened to the prices. And the quality of most items didn't change. I'll tailgate all day every day before spending $12 on a craft beer or $15 on a burger and tater tots.

I went to four games this past year and never had an issue at any of the concessions. Seemed more efficient and the food was better than it was previously IMO.

I enjoy food a lot and I have to admit, it was a challenge finding something that sounded good at the ballpark this year. I don’t care for Usingers which eliminates the sausages, they can’t make tacos or Ajs burgers without onions, usually went with bbq pork for $13 and still hungry. Had cheese fries a lot too, same issues with the wife, nothing ever sounded good. Lines most of the time were terrible.

I liked the layout and setup. But I agree that it seemed like the choices and variety went down this year. I usually just get basics anyway so it's not a big deal to me, just my observations walking around compared to past years.

My wife couldn't find anything that appealed to her. Everything I tried was expensive and small so I just stuck to eating in the parking lot.

The food is good but laughably small-portioned and expensive. I appreciate that you can bring stuff in. But like $10 for tiny tacos is something I'll only do once. I just can't buy concessions at sporting events. Such horrible value, but that's everywhere.

Why is there no high-end food that is available to people? I mean, why not have a stand or app you could order like a nice steak at? Maybe it's unrealistic but I think what a great option that could be.

Could turn the Toyota Tundra territory into the Gordon Ramsey Kicken! [laughing]

They'd have to charge like $80 bucks for an 8 oz sirloin to meet the ridiculous margins they already get. If I go straight from work and have to eat at the park, I usually go the pizza route. $10 for a personal pizza that is pretty good and filling. I'd rather do that than pay $15-16 for a burger and tots, plus like someone noted you can't customize anything so that's not a route I'm willing to go anyways.

The chicken tenders and tots at the AJ Bombers stands are the best bang for your buck. Filling and reasonably tasty for $7.50. The rest of the stuff not so much. The upgraded sausages and buns are decent when you get a good one. Paying $5.50 for a cold hot dog is enraging. But yeah the layout is fine, it's the food that's lacking. There were plenty of the 25% off SSH discount games which I give the club credit for. The prices were a little easier to deal with.

If only they had an AJ Bombers

Variety is horrible. Also, scavenger hunt every time I wanted Secret Stadium Sauce. (Would give up all their new concessions for the old hot dogs soaking in SSS like they had at County Stadium.)

Yes, it's expensive, but that doesn't bother me as that's a given. If I'm hungry enough I will buy something, usually just a hot dog. Glad they won an award I guess, but I just don't see it.

Fair points. I will usually offer anybody but a cub fan my SSH discount if I happen to be getting something for me or a friend and they are in line next to me and it's a SSH day. That 25% goes a long way to making prices fringe reasonable.

The craft beer bar on the Loge Level was enough of an upgrade by itself to warrant an award.

I only made it to one game and it was a game with one dollar hot dogs and sodas and I think four dollar nachos. The hot dog quality was poor but honestly I’d rather have four below average hot dogs for four dollars then one decent hot dog for whatever it is they charge now because at least it will fill me up. I have such a hard time justifying paying these ridiculous prices for food. I prefer just to get something on the way.

I feel like the award should be shared with Jimmy John's ...because that's the food I actually eat at the ballpark.
