2012_4_stadiumlogo.jpg There's no reason to settle on a mediocre hot dog or $8 Coors Light — there are plenty of great options out there, if you know where to look. If there's time to spare before the game, try a wild boar dog at Biker Jim's Dogs or enjoy a selection of 150+ beers at Falling Rock Taphouse. The stadium has a few solid bets as well, including the Wok in the Park food truck and Helton Burger Shack. Guests at Coors Field are also permitted to bring food into the stadium, so check the list of permitted items and consider grabbing something extra delicious on the way to the game.

In honor of the first day of the 2012 baseball season, here's a guide for what to eat at and around Coors Field.

Five Ballpark Area Standouts

BBfallingrocktap.jpgFalling Rock Taphouse, 1919 Blake Street.: Named one of the top 100 beer bars in American by Draft Magazine, Falling Rock Taphouse offers 75+ beers on tap and 130+ bottled beers. The menu includes a variety of sandwiches, salads, burgers and appetizers.

BBbreckenridge.jpgBreckenridge BallPark Pub, 2220 Blake Street: The pub recently closed for some renovations, and as of April 3rd, it's back in full swing. Breckenridge BallPark Pub serves a long list of local brews, and the food menu doesn't skip any ballpark essentials. Look for the brewery's barrel-aged cocktail offerings.

BBwykoopbrewing.jpgWynkoop Brewing, 1634 18th Street: It is Colorado’s first brewpub afterall, so it's definitely a staple pregame destination. Wynkoop's specialities include mighty red gumbo, mashers and bangers (Scottish sausage, mustard sauce, kraut, mashed potatoes), stout braised pot roast and buttermilk fried chicken. Anything ordered at Wynkoop will match well with one of their signature beers.

BBbikerjims.jpgBiker Jim's Dogs, 2148 Larimer Street: For anyone in search of a truly above average dog, Jim's is your place. It's also an Eater 38 essential. Dog options include elk jalapeno cheddar, wild boar, rattlesnack & pheasant, duck cilantro and many, many more. Top your dog with awesome things like caramelized onions, cream cheese, harissa roasted cactus and wasabi aioli. Jim's offers a selection of craft beer and a few cocktails as well.

BBmarcos.jpgMarco's Coal-Fired Pizza, 2129 Larimer Street: Pizza isn't hard to come by inside of Coors Field, but really good pizza should be pursued outside of the stadium. Marco's is definitely worth the short walk, and it's also an Eater 38 essential. Get down on a pizza Napoletana, a New York-style pizza or build the ultimate dream pie. Marco's also offers gluten-free crust — it's supposed to be pretty good, too.
