Phillies fans take a new spin on the idea of chicken and waffles with Federal Donuts, an eatery based in Central City new to Citizens Bank that nixes the waffles and serves donuts instead. Choose between “fancy” and “hot fresh” donuts with fun flavors like cookies & cream, Indian cinnamon, appollonia, milk chocolate with sea salt, pumpkin spice, and more. The chicken comes in quirky flavors as well, featuring options like coconut curry, za’atar (a popular Middle Eastern spice), chili-garlic, and so on. Find them in section 140.
McFadden’s Restaurant and Saloon
If you’re looking for an all-around good place to find all of your American classics along with a drink or two, McFadden’s is the place to go. Chicken wings, nachos, burgers, wraps, cheesesteaks, and a variety of other fan favorites fill the menu of McFadden’s, located in section 127. They also offer some interesting dishes like the Guinness Shepard’s Pie which is made of ground beef cooked with sweet peas, carrots, whipped potatoes and cheese cooked until golden.
The Schmitter is a special, magical, one-of-a-kind item hidden in a small little stand near the left field gate, according to fans. The Schmitter is a unique sandwich that owes its birth to an eccentric local who frequented nearby McNally’s Tavern. From the top down the Schmitter consists of cheese, “special” sauce, grilled salami, more cheese, tomatoes, fried onions, steak, and even more cheese all wrapped in a kaiser roll. Get your Phillies tickets to be sure you don’t miss this Philadelphia legend in section 140.

No Philadelphia food guide would be complete without a nod to some local Philly cheesesteak pros. Tony Luke’s offers two delicious sandwiches for your enjoyment, a classic beef cheesesteak topped with tasty caramelized onions and cheese whiz (or real cheese, if you prefer), and the roast pork with cheese, featuring sharp provolone and optional broccoli rabe. You can pick up one of Tony Luke’s cheesesteaks in Ashburn Alley or section 141.

The Bull’s BBQ name might sound familiar to true Phillies fans who remember #19, Greg “The Bull” Luzinski. Following his retirement in 1984 and a few years of high school coaching, Luzinski opened “Bull’s BBQ” in Citizens Bank Park. He brought his original take on BBQ to the stadium, offering items like turkey legs, ribs, chicken, sausages, “bull dogs,” and more to the good people of Philadelphia. Stop by Bull’s BBQ near the right field gate.
Whether you’re a Phillie fanatic, fanatic foodie, or both, the wonderful staff at Citizens Bank Park offer some of the best eats in the northeast.
