Come early and come hungry to the next Tiger’s game. You’ll be delighted by the endless and creative food and drink options.

Ball Park Franks

Hot dogs and baseball go hand-in-hand, but in Detroit, it’s the Ball Park Frank that became infamous with the Tigers. In 1958, the club was looking for a new hot dog vendor. They contacted Hygrade Food Corp., a Detroit-based meatpacking company, for an alternative to their current vendor. Hygrade had a special recipe in mind, and one employee dubbed it the Ball Park Frank.

The name stuck, and Ball Park Franks became the official dog of Briggs Stadium.

You can still find a fine Ball Park Frank across Comerica Park. Look for them at Big League grills and portable stands. Now, you can enjoy the classic Ball Park Frank, Chicago-style dog, Coney dog, Italian Sausage, Polish Sausage, Bratwursts, and more throughout the park.


Ball Park Classics

Of course, you can find any of the ballpark classics at Comerica. Soft pretzels, hot dogs, popcorn, and nachos with gooey orange cheese. You’ll find these throughout the park at the Big League Grills and at portable stands. You can also find Chicago-style and coney dogs, burgers, elephant ears, flavored popcorn, cotton candy, and candy at Big Cat Court.

Only In Detroit

Little Caesars A Detroit Staple

Little Caesars is a Detroit staple and an Illich family tradition. Since the family founded Little Caesars and later purchased the Tigers organization, it makes a perfect combo to enjoy a slice at the game. If you have several people who want pizza during the game, buy a whole pizza instead of by the slice to save some cash.
