12 new foods available at Cincinnati Reds games this season


The culinary team at Great American Ball Park has released their new concessions for the 2018 baseball season. As you might expect given sports stadium trends around the country, the new items tend to be standard ballpark fare with a slight ethnic twist.

1. The Goetta Burger

This patty comprised of German ground meat and oats makes it a uniquely Cincinnati ballpark item. It comes topped with Swiss cheese and is served on a Servatii’s pretzel bun.

2. Goetta Fry Box

Cincinnatians know that goetta is used to make and flavor all kinds of dishes. In this case, it’s a box filled with fries or tots (your choice) and topped with goetta gravy, bacon, shredded cheddar cheese, and green onions. 

3. Queen City Wicked Sausages

Another spicy product of Cincinnati’s German heritage. Once you choose between a chipotle, ghost pepper, or jalapeno sausage, it comes topped with peppers and onions. 

4. Queen City Fried Garlic Bologna

This fried bologna sandwich is served on a three-meal bun and topped with spicy mustard. 

5. B.L.T. Dog

This variation on an American classic adds a juicy hot dog and Sriracha mayo.
