Hamburgers doubling as burritos. Hot dogs garnished with cream cheese and caramelized onions. Strawberry cheesecake in a quesadilla. Yeah, it may be time to update the lyrics to the seventh-inning stretch anthem, “Take Me Out to the Ballgame,” because ballparks—including Denver’s very own Coors Field—are slinging far more than peanuts and Cracker Jack these days.

The gut-busting 2024 concession options at Coors include some familiar Colorado classics, such as green chile ladled over cheese fries and battered-and-fried Rocky Mountain oysters (they’re in section 144). Joining the roster this season is a hulking beef rib and, on the opposite end of the spectrum, plant-based burgers and shakes.

The Rockies are also expanding Amazon’s “Just Walk Out” technology that debuted last year. At two concession stands—the Coors Light Chill Zone in section 105 and the new Epic Western Saloon near section 150—game-goers can grab the snacks they want and just walk out, with a system that automatically registers what fans take off the shelves and processes their payments when they exit.

Headed out to a ballgame? Here’s where to find the best food and drinks at Coors Field.

Dino Rib

One of the newest offerings at Coors is the Dino Rib, a tribute to Dinger, the purple dinosaur who serves as the Rockies’ official mascot. This gigantic 20-ounce smoked beef rib is slow-smoked overnight with hickory chips and, at $30, costs more than rooftop tickets. The plate comes with a salad and a piece of paratha (a flaky Indian flatbread). It’s a limited-time menu item so it might go extinct by next season. (The SandLot Brewery, Section 112)

Green Chile Cheese Fries

Perhaps the most decadent dish you’ll find in Coors Field are the green chile cheese fries. They start with shoestring fries and are topped with a generous heap of green pork chile. From there, they’re sprinkled with shredded cheddar and Jack cheeses. Wisconsin cheese curds take them over the top. (Sections 134 and 335)

Hot Dogs from Biker Jim’s

Sure, you could get a Rockies dog from a number of Coors concessionaires. But if you live for a hot dog at a baseball game, you’ll want to seek out the dogs that are less “school lunch” and more gourmet. Proceed to Biker Jim’s. The hot dog purveyor’s stands within Coors Field offer a more concise menu than the nearby restaurant at 2148 Larimer Street. But inside the stadium, you still have a nice selection of elk jalapeño cheddar dogs, bacon cheddar brats, a Louisiana red hot all-beef dog with habanero, or a vegan dog. Your next move is to choose a topping: Biker Jim’s classic with cream cheese and caramelized onions or traditional spicy brown mustard and sauerkraut. Heed our warning: Don’t wait until the seventh inning stretch to hunt down one of these bad boys—they’re known to sell out. (Sections 107 and 331; here’s where else you can find game day hot dogs near Coors Field)


You’re in Coors Field. You know what to do. But after downing a Banquet or two, seek out the frosé. Wine slushies are especially clutch during one of those hot afternoon games where the seats are sizzling hot and you’re better off watching the game from the standing-room-only section near the Silver Bullet Bar. But if you are a true fan and prefer a frozen drink with team spirit, head to the Captain’s Deck on the Mezzanine Level in center field and you’ll find frozen margs in a Rockies shade of purple.

Doritos Walking Nacho

It’s been well over a decade since Taco Bell unleashed the Nacho Cheese Doritos Locos tacos on us. Despite their popularity, culinary innovation involving America’s favorite bright orange chip has been at a standstill—until now. Coors Field is serving nachos with the nacho-cheese-flavored chips as a base, and our only question is: “What took so long?” Served in the Doritos bag for convenience, with a split down the middle, the walking nacho comes with a choice of carnitas or chicken tinga. The nachos are also topped with green chile queso, jalapeños, and pico de gallo. (Sections 130, 144, and 330)

Tornadough Pretzels

If you’re a sucker for Dippin’ Dots, might we recommend you try Tornadough pretzels next? Both fall in the “fun snack” category. Tornadoughs look like breadsticks, but there’s something really satisfying about pulling the stretchy, spiralized dough apart. These underrated Coors Field delicacies taste like a cross between a pastry and pretzel, and you can order them sweet with cinnamon sugar or savory with Parmesan. (Sections 125, 154, and 330)

Mustache Pretzels

The most Instagram-ready snack at Coors Field is this mustache-shaped soft pretzel made for fun stadium selfies. The treats are a fan favorite at Salt River Fields at Talking Stick, the stadium in Scottsdale, Arizona where the Rockies play their spring training games. Now served at two kiosks at Coors, these soft and buttery pretzels sprinkled with coarse salt are best dunked in cheese sauce. (Sections 144 and 312)

Smashburger Burgers

Burgers can be found throughout Coors Field. But the very best ones are at Smashburger’s rooftop outpost. The fast-casual, Denver-based chain smashes its burger patties when they come off the grill (it’s what gives them their signature caramelized char). The abbreviated Smashburger menu at Coors includes classic smash and bacon smash burgers as well as tater tots and fries. (Section 303)

Instead of a bun, Coors’ newest burger comes disguised in a tortilla. The Burgeritto is filled with a green chile burger, shoestring fries, and various fixings including shredded cheddar-Jack cheese, bacon bits, tomatoes, and pico de gallo. It’s designed for convenience: You can have your burger and fries in an easy-to-eat, griddled tortilla wrap, according to the chefs at Aramark. (Section 134 and 306 Grills)

Better-Off Burgers and Shakes

Ballpark options for vegans just grew with the arrival of Better-Off Burgers at Coors. Its OG plant-based burger is made mostly with mushrooms and comes topped with vegan cheddar cheese, although you can customize it with add-ons like roasted mushrooms, onions, and avocado. Specialty burgers are on the menu, too, including a “chorizo” burger with vegan smoked Gouda, roasted peppers, Bibb lettuce, and plant-based chipotle aïoli and the Medi Burger with za’atar, carrot-sumac slaw, olive tapenade, and a harissa mayo. Wash it all down with an oat milk protein shake in flavors like vanilla or strawberry. (Section 115)

Berrie Kabobs

You’ve got lots of options for sweet treats at the stadium: churros, cookies, Cracker Jack, cotton candy, funnel cakes, ice cream, and more. But the one stand that consistently draws a crowd at Coors is Berrie Kabobs, which serves strawberries, bananas, and brownie bites on a stick that have been generously drizzled with white and milk chocolates. (Section 132)

Strawberry Cheesecake Quesadilla

You’ve likely had your fair share of strawberry desserts. For a delectable curveball, Coors is throwing a strawberry cheesecake prepared like a quesadilla our way this season. (Last year’s limited-edition dessert was a peach chimichanga). The dessert comes with diced strawberry, cream cheese, sugar, and cinnamon layered between a pair of flour tortillas and then topped with whipped cream. (Section 109)
