2023 Concessions

Each year, some vendors bow out to make room for new food and beverage stands in the stadium. It’s always exciting to learn about what’s new. To get an early taste of new concessions and menu items for 2024, plan on attending next year’s Padres FanFest.

New & Local Options

Local flavor continues to be what Petco Park is all about. New San Diego-based food & drink vendors in 2023 include Alpine Beer Company for local-ish beer on tap and local Grand Ole BBQ y Asado sausages Kona Big Wave Patio, joining last year’s new entries: Sambazon, Jack in the Box (yes it is local, founded in 1951 by a San Diegan), tasty but pricey Holy Paleta frozen pops from Bonita.

Fans at Petco Park can access food and drink info through the MLB Ballpark App on their cellphone and use it to purchase meals, snacks, drinks and other items.
