Good place to go eat before Dodger game

Going to my first Dodger's game tonight, only because I have to support my fighting Phils. Have never been, looking to get dinner before game, any recomendations? Nothing too fancy or expensive.

  1. The answer is nowhere! If it's your first Dodger game you have to get a Dodger dog at the stadium. As well as a bag of shelled peanuts to leave a mess of shattered husks at your feet. This is baseball tradition, you must not deviate.

      I went to my first Dodger game recently, and have to agree that, eventhough I thought that the Dodger dog was kinda salty, its part of the whole experience :) The frozen lemonade was also yum, haha. It's basically a junk food fest.

      Have fun!

        Yep, it's the Dodger Dog.

        Also, get the garlic fries and TCBY Yogurt in a Helmet Cup.

      2. sorry but i have to agree. although it's not that inexpensive.

        1. Lamb sandwich and a 9cent cup of coffee at Phillipe the Original:

          1. To agree with both what Bunson/woofer and Food Good said ... there's no reason you can't do both.

            Definitely try out Philippes for one their french dip sandwiches (and grab a few to go to take with you to the game) but also make sure to try a Dodger dog or two and some ice cream. Might not be the best dog in the world, but if you end up hating it you at least have to experience it first hand to properly disparage it.

            Enjoy the game.

            1. I second Philippe’s pork sandwich double dip with coleslaw

                The Hat at Garfiield and Valley went there last night before the game took the 10 to the 101 and went down alemeda to the game (take college uo to stadium way) great shortcut.. Philippes is solid as well. The Hat has pastrami and onion rings or fries ( just get a small order enough for the whole section..)

                  I third Phillipes and the Double Dip Pork. Yuuummmmmmy!
