Forget the peanuts and Cracker Jacks.
The Atlanta Braves are breaking out some real belt-busting menu items for their final season at Turner Field.
Leading the way is the “Burgerizza,” which is described as a grilled 20-ounce beef patty, covered with five slices of cheddar cheese, topped with crispy bacon, and served between two 8-inch pepperoni pizzas. Don’t forget to bring a credit card. The Burgerizza is $26, and it’s worth noting an angioplasty is not included.
Never miss a local story.
The Braves, in conjunction with concessions partner Delaware North, are also introducing “The Everything Dog,” aka T.E.D. (a play on Turner Field’s nickname). This $15 foot-long hot dog will be layered with fries, chili, nacho chips, beer cheese and jalapenos, topped with popcorn and drizzled with Coca-Cola-infused BBQ sauce, served in a pretzel bun.
Here are some of the other new choices, in all their artery clogging glory:
“Tater Tot Chop” – A layer of tater tots pressed in a waffle iron, loaded with bacon, melted cheese and jalapenos, topped with a second tater tot waffle and served with Coca-Cola-infused ketchup. Cost: $16.
“Punisher” – Country-fried smoked rib meat slathered in a Monster Energy-infused BBQ sauce, topped a fresh cut beer-battered onion ring and “slawsa” (because, why choose between slaw and salsa?), tucked between a toasted and buttered Hawaiian bun and pinned in place with two slices of candied bacon. Cost: $18.
“Sausage Sundae” – Smoked sausage, split down the middle, topped with macaroni-n-cheese, mashed potatoes, and pulled pork, finished off with BBQ Sauce and a cherry tomato (in an apparent nod to the health freaks). Cost: $9.
“TOP-N-GO” – Your choice of Fritos topped with chili and cheese sauce or Doritos topped with pulled pork, pulled chicken and cheese sauce. Cost $9.
The Braves are moving to a new stadium in suburban Cobb County in 2017.
No word if they’re planning wider seats.
