For the 2019 Mud Hens season, it’s good to know your options— all things food and entertainment— that Hensville has to offer. Whether you are a barbecue aficionado, a vegetarian, someone with a next-level sweet tooth, or just a foodie who likes to mix it up when you go to the ballpark, Fifth Third Field has lots of new options for you. We created a roundup of some of our favorite new foods that you can look forward to enjoying this season.
Bbq Pulled Pork Sandwich
Nothing says summer like barbecue, especially a tender, hand-pulled pork sandwich with just-sweet-enough sauce, slow roasted and served on a fresh Kaiser bun. The generous portions of meat are well-coated in the thick sauce and there’s no runny mess when you’re trying to eat and enjoy the game. Bon appetit!
New Concourse Restaurant
FrozHen Cocktails and Non-Alcoholic Mocktails
It’s getting warm out (finally!), so celebrate with one of the newest additions to the Mud Hens drink lineup— Frozhen Cocktails? You can choose from margarita, strawberry daiquiri, yellow lemonade, or blue raspberry. If you’d rather enjoy these slushy summer drinks sans alcohol, simply order them as mocktails and drink up.
Mac and Cheese
Made with spiral pasta, housemade creamy sauce, and topped with crispy panko crumbs, this mac and cheese is an unforgettable take on a classic dish. Served up hot with melted cheesy goodness, you’ll be glad you decided to expand your horizons beyond the typical hotdog. The only way to make the ultimate comfort food even better is to top it with brisket and a healthy helping of barbecue sauce. Gilhooley’s house-made mac and cheese sauce is already to die for, but this newest addition will put you over the edge with smoky flavor.
Loaded Tater Tots
These aren’t your mamma’s after-school treat. Gilhooley’s offers crispy-on-the-outside, tender-on-the-inside tots smothered in nacho cheese, sour cream, green onions, and bacon. This filling combo will keep you fueled to cheer for your favorite players and to heckle opponents.
The Impossible Burger
Most people don’t think of baseball games as the best place to find vegetarian options, but Fifth Third Field is filled with surprises, one of which is the Impossible Burger. Made with a plant-based patty, it’s so good that it could fool any life-long carnivore. The quarter-pound burger comes with American cheese, lettuce, tomato, pickles, and a special sauce, all served on a Kaiser bun.
Philly Cart’s Philly Reuben Sandwich
Treat yourself to the Glass City’s take on a Philly sandwich. Philly Cart’s reuben will knock your socks off with melted Swiss cheese over sauerkraut-topped corned beef, served on a hoagie bun.
Mudzarella’s Turkey Sub
This huge sandwich will definitely fill you up. It’s so filled with fresh, oven-roasted sliced turkey breast and veggies that you might not have room for anything else for the rest of the day! The sub has lettuce, tomatoes, onions and cheddar cheese served on fresh crusty bread.
S’more Funnel Cake
Folks with a sweet tooth, they haven’t forgotten about you. This chocolaty, marshmallowy take on a carnival staple will leave you asking for s’more (sorry, we couldn’t not). It’s drizzled with chocolate and topped with mini marshmallows and crumbly bits of graham cracker.
