Sure, Dollar Dog Night has gone the way of the complete game. But you can’t live on cheap hot dogs alone, Phillies fans. Let’s find you a new favorite thing to eat at CBP.

Phillies fans were up in arms when the team announced the end of Dollar Dog Night prior to the season, and replaced the wildly popular frankfurter promotion with buy one, get one free (BOGO) hot dog nights.

But you can’t live on cheap hot dogs alone, Phillies fans. There are many other great foods to try out at CBP.

We scoured the stadium’s concessions guide to find the most unusual (and delicious) options. Let’s find you a new favorite thing to eat the next time you’re at a Phillies game.

Schwarburger 2.0

The SchwarBurger debuted during the postseason last year, named after Phillies slugger Kyle Schwarber. The original SchwarBurger was a mountain of brisket and onion rings, but the permanent “Schwarburger 2.0” is a little more traditional. Now, the burger’s toppings are pretty classic — cheese and a special sauce — though it also comes with bacon, crispy onions, and a fried egg. A portion of proceeds from burger sales will benefit first responder families.

Find the Schwarburger 2.0 at Coca-Cola Corner behind section 142.

Loaded Funnel Cake Fry Sundae

Not only is Citizens Bank Park now serving funnel cake in a new, ingenious form — fries! — but the funnel cake fries are prepared as the base of an ice cream sundae. Get it at Coca-Cola Corner behind section 142.

Flamin’ Pickleback Wings and Other Rotating Wing Flavors

PJ Whelihan’s will serve a new wing flavor each month throughout the season. But don’t think that the wing flavors will be boring. For instance, flamin’ pickleback wings are taking over during the month of April. You know the pickleback — a shot of liquor chased by a shot of pickle juice.

Try it in wing form at PJ Whelihan’s in Ashburn Alley.

Cheeseburger Egg Rolls

Cheeseburger egg rolls may not initially seem like a strange or unique appetizer, because you might regularly see them on pub food menus. But just take a moment and think about it. Cheeseburger flavors … inside an egg roll. Yeah, it’s kinda weird, right? Ah, we love food ingenuity.

You can also find this tasty culinary creation at the sports bar P.J. Whelihan’s.

Buffalo “Chicken” Ranch Hoagie

Phillies fans are lucky to enjoy widespread — and inclusive — food options at Citizens Bank Park. Unlike many other MLB parks, Citizens Bank Park is home to an entirely plant-based food stand. Greens and Grains, a vegan restaurant chain based in New Jersey, has its own stand at CBP. Plant-based or plant-based-curious Phillies fans can try a new buffalo “chicken” ranch hoagie, a seitan gyro, or a classic ballpark hot dog made vegan.

Find Greens and Grains behind home plate near section 125.

Big Mozz Mozzarella Sticks

The new Big Mozz mozzarella sticks available at Citizens Bank Park aren’t just any mozzarella sticks — they’re BIG mozzarella sticks, and they’re from famed mozzarella sticks vendor Big Mozz. Munch on these large, whole milk mozzarella snacks throughout the ballpark, including at Coca-Cola Corner near section 142 and at 1883 Burger Co behind section 108.

Phillies Soft Pretzel

It’s a regular Philly soft pretzel … in the shape of a Phillies “P”! You can’t get that anywhere else. And why would you want to?!

Beer Bat

The beer bat — a large, narrow container in the size and shape of a baseball bat, used for holding an alcoholic beverage — is not unique to Philadelphia. But the Phillies beer bat is unique to Philadelphia. And it is ridiculous. Please note, as with many ridiculous and unnecessary things that spark joy, the beer bat will cost a pretty penny. Like, at least 2,500 pennies ($25). And, uh, the little home plate stand to hold your beer bat is extra — but so cute!

Ballpark Bomb Fries at P.J. Whelihan’s

We can only assume these are called “ballpark bomb fries” because the combination of buffalo-seasoned french fries and buffalo wings will feel like a bomb in your stomach. Yum! Find them at P.J. Whelihan’s.

Chickie’s and Pete’s Crabfries

Crabfries aren’t necessarily unusual — after all, these fries have been a Philly classic since 1977. But the fact that they don’t contain any crab — just Old Bay seasoning, which people often use to season crab — is kind of odd. Grab them at Chickie’s and Pete’s in Ashburn Alley or at locations behind sections 208, 219, 225, and 319.

Four Walls Whiskey

Have you ever been making a dark and stormy cocktail and thought to yourself ‘This would be so much better if I used whiskey made by the cast of “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia?”‘ Well, good news! Citizens Bank Park is now selling Four Walls Whiskey, an Irish American whiskey made from a mix of Irish grain and malt whiskey and American rye whiskey and founded by Glenn Howerton, Rob McElhenney, and Charlie Day of “It’s Always Sunny” fame. The founders say the spirit is “a tribute to the Four Walls the gang calls home — the bar.”

Try it with your Phillies gang at one of the bars at Citizens Bank Park!

The Heater

As a Citizens Bank Park classic, The Heater — the official cheesesteak of the Phillies! — may seem like pretty standard fare. But the spicy cheesesteak, made with jalapenos and buffalo sauce, is only standard at Phillies games. Order it at Campo’s in Ashburn Alley.

Federal Donuts & Chicken

There’s nothing wrong with eating dessert first or eating dessert while you eat dinner. Indeed, it’s pretty efficient for ballgames — you only have to leave your seat to get dinner once! At Federal Donuts, you can get crispy chicken together with donuts. Find the sweet and savory pairing at the Federal Donuts stand behind section 140.
