Baseball and food seems to go hand in hand. The Colorado Rockies announced on Wednesday that they were adding some new food items to the options for fans making the trek to Coors Field in 2018. The new options included everything from Rocky Mountain Po’boys to Mile High Mac-N-Cheese. You can see the entire list of new foods and their mouth-watering descriptions by clicking here.
The food list comes right after it was announced that the Rockies will be represented at the upcoming MLB Food Fest in April in New York City. Colorado will be sending a Helton Burger (named after Rockies great Todd Helton) and fresh cut fries to the event.

Don’t get me wrong. I’m glad that the Rockies are being represented in New York … but the Helton Burger simply isn’t a good representation of the amazing food that can be found in other places at Coors Field. It’s a burger that bears Helton’s name much like a Caesar salad wouldn’t be any different if it was named the Charlie Blackmon Caesar salad.
So what food should not only represent the Rockies in the Big Apple but also be on your list of things to try when visiting 20th and Blake? I’m glad you asked. I chatted with several Rockies ticket holders to get their takes on the food … and also remembered what stands out to me when I roam the concourses before covering home games for Rox Pile.
Without further delay, here are five suggestions for you to try on your next trip to Coors Field.
