There’s nothing quite like game day: the rush of adrenaline, the sea of fans sporting your favorite team’s colors and, of course, a trip or four to the concessions stands. Whether you’re hitting a Dodgers game, repping the Lakers at the Staples Center or cheering at the Angel Stadium of Anaheim, it’s a time for ice-cold beer and snacks you can stress-eat when the game gets too close.
While typical ballgame and courtside fare includes peanuts, Cracker Jacks and hot dogs, L.A. has some of the country’s best when it comes to eating while catching a game—including California-only craft beer stands, some seriously killer tacos, and sandwiches from James Beard-nominated chefs. Sure, there are places to eat near the park, and team-inspired specials all over town, but with food this good, why even leave the stadium? Here’s where and what to eat inside Dodger Stadium, the Banc of California Stadium, the Staples Center and more.
