Gone are the days when peanuts and Cracker Jacks were the most exciting food items at baseball games. Baseball stadiums around the country now boast impressive dining options that go beyond your typical concession stand fare — and Comerica Park is no exception.

In addition to the usual fare offered every year, Comerica Park has tons of new food items available this season, with an emphasis on local flavors and Detroit-based restaurants. From burritos and tortas to shrimp and sliders, hungry Tigers fans are in for a treat (actually, several treats). Plant-based dishes, globally inspired items, and Tigers-themed beverages are all available for fans to indulge in as they cheer on their team from the stands.

“Reflecting Detroit’s vibrant food scene, our executive chef, Mark Szubeczak, and his team have meticulously crafted a menu that reimagines ballpark classics with innovative twists,” Delaware North Sportservice, the food, beverage, and retail provider at Comerica Park, wrote on Instagram.

To ensure you don’t miss out on any of the good game day eats, we’ve rounded up all the home run dining options you can enjoy at Comerica. Keep reading to discover the tastiest food you can eat at a Tigers home game this season.
