12 new foods available at Cincinnati Reds games this season

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.

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
