The Ultimate Petco Park Food Guide

What makes a great ballpark? From the views, to the fan experience, and the best food in town, Petco Park has you covered. America’s Finest Ballpark is known for it’s variety of food options! Whether your looking to snack on your favorite ballpark bites or branch out and try some of San Diego’s favorite local restaurants, you won’t be disappointed!

Seaside Market

Sect. 105; Tri-Tip Cart: 110 & 309; Nacho Cart: 208, 308, 322, 327

Seaside Market is my personal fave! There are so many options to choose from, but you can never go wrong with Tri-Tip nachos!

Tri-tip nachos: includes cheese sauce, a large portion of chopped up tri-tip, drizzled BBQ sauce, sour cream and sprinkled green onions

*They also offer a tri-tip sandwich*

If you aren’t feeling the nachos, you can always go for an entree with two sides!

My go-to consists of chicken tenders, spicy Mac-n-cheese, and potato wedges! (Thanks Megan!!)

However, if you are vegetarian or prefer to go gluten-free, you can always pick up a fresh (and delicious) salad!

Board & Brew

Sect. 109 & 205

Turkado: turkey breast & jack cheese topped with avocado served on sourdough or a gluten-free wrap

Blue Water Seafood Market & Grill

Sect. 119

Grilled Fish Tacos: served on corn tortillas and consists of cabbage, tomatoes, onions, cheddar cheese and their homemade white sauce

If you happen to attend a Tuesday game tacos are only $2.50! Delicious and you can’t beat the price!

Vegetarian & Gluten-Free Options:

⁃ Veggie Supreme

⁃ Gluten-Free Wrap

Phil’s BBQ

Sect. 113, Western Metal Supply Building, & Gallagher Square (Park in the Park)

If you’re big on BBQ, you can’t miss this spot!

El Toro Char-Grilled Deli Sliced Tri-Tip Sandwich is the way to go! (Don’t forget the perfectly crispy onion rings).

Gaglione Brothers

Sect. 124, 129, & 319; Fry Stand: 101

You can’t forget about the cheesesteak! You can’t deny how perfectly the American cheese melts in your mouth as you savor the chicken and steak.

When taking a quick trip to Gaglione’s, don’t forget the rich and famous GARLIC FRIES! (This is a MUST!)


Definitely a local fan favorite!

If you haven’t the chance to try the bacon burger, you are missing out!

Want a taste of Italy? Be sure to check out one of my favorite places at the ballpark, Buona Forchetta.

OR you can stop by Pizza Port!

Wherever you decide to go, you will not be disappointed!

Meal Options for the Lil’ Friar Faithful:

Ballpark Eats has plenty to choose from, but the Lil’ Slugger meal is perfect for the little ones!

Lil’ Slugger includes:

  • Hot dog
  • Fruit
  • Cookie
  • Drink

If the Lil’ Slugger isn’t enough to satisfy their hunger, head over to Pizza Port!

Lil’ Kid Meal includes:

As for snacks, I absolutely love the regular nachos found at Ballpark Eats.
