Petco Stadium Goes Gluten Free

Yesterday I went to Petco Stadium in San Diego to watch the Padres vs. Kansas City Royals game. While I'm not much of a baseball fan, my boyfriend is, and I do love an outing to the ballpark and all of the sights and smells that come with it. I especially love San Diego, the ocean, and beautiful summer weather they are currently having. My brother in law is in town from Kansas City (hence the Royals game), so we decided to head out so the boys could enjoy the game, while I enjoyed some sun.

Before going, I went online and called the stadium, and was surprised to learn they have a gluten free stand! The stand is located in Section 108. They serve Redbridge beer made by Budweiser which isn't bad - and hamburgers and hot dogs - on gluten free buns... YEAH!!  They sometimes have PopChips, but were all out.  This was fine with me because I don't eat items that are made in a facility or on equipment that manufacture wheat or gluten.  Just my preference.

Here is the menu up close

 I settled for a cold, frosty beer.  Ahh, that hit the spot.

Here is a link to the Padres A-Z guide if you look under healthy food you will see they mention the concession stand. Then look on the website map to help you find the stand.

Here is a list I found of other ballparks around the nation that have gluten free options (from Can We Eat That? blog site)

  1. That's really cool, too bad it will take stadiums in the Midwest 10 years to start doing this!
