Food near or in Angel Stadium?

Food at Angel Stadium is not good. I know, I know, I expect too much from a $10.00 hot dog, and a $6.00 bag of stale peanuts. (I am mostly mad at myself, because I never take the time to swing by Bay Cities to grab a Godmother to bring into the game). Any good grab n' go options near the stadium? or am I missing something great inside the stadium?

  1. In-n-Out...or how about a Bob's Big Boy @ the Stadium Promenade (Katella, east of the 57)?

    1. Your two best options inside the stadium are probably the specialty hot dog place out in LF (they do a pretty good version of a Chicago dog), or the Katella Grill concession (fried chicken tenders w/fries).

      Depending on where you're coming from, Cortina's (pretty good Italian deli sandwiches) is a reliable choice.

      There's also a little Mexican joint just across Katella called Fresca's. I like their burritos. It's very popular with the pregame crowd, but they get the food out quickly.

        I've brought a whole pizza into Anaheim Stadium. So try either Zito's pizza (near Hooters on Katella) or Marri's (near Disneyland on Katella)

        Blake's Place has very good BBQ, about 7 miles from stadium. There is a Lucille's take out location on Chapman and a Beach Pit BBQ at Orange Circle but I'm not a fan of either place. Beach Pit had locations at the stadium but they pulled out this year.

        Near the Orange Circle is a Middle Eastern place, Papa's (something) good kebobs.

        What I find interesting is that you can bring a Big Gulp, any size, into Anaheim Stadium. But you can't bring that same Big Gulp into Dodger Stadium. You can bring a sealed bottle of water, less than one liter in size, into both. But you can't bring in a soda or sports drink.

          You're probably thinking of Papa Hassan's on Glassel, up from the circle on the edge of the Chapman U. campus. Haven't been in years, but remember it as tasty and affordable, even for a struggling grad student.

      2. Can' go wrong with this place: Jagerhaus
        It's the bomb
        I'm sure you can get any of those sammy's listed on their lunch menu to go (assuming you're off to a day game). Call ahead maybe they'll do for an evening game too...

        1. You're right...Angel Stadium food offerings are poor. I say that with regret as I'm a life-long fan. Here's our usual plan of attack. On the way to the game, drive through Portillo's in Buena Park for some truly delicious dogs and Italian beef sandwiches, and continue to the stadium just a few minutes away. The security staff has no problem with outside food being brought in or even drinks, as long as they are not alcoholic and are in the paper cups the restaurant serves them in. Bottle and cans are forbidden.

          1. Great options, thanks everyone!

              Forgot to mention, Doner G Turkish & Mediterranean Grill, on Ball Rd, just east of State College.
