NEW 2022 Phillies ballpark food: Pizza, fried chicken, & more at Citizens Bank Park
The Philadelphia Phillies have given the fans a reason to come to the ballpark this summer, and it’s not just the lineup. The bats may be elite, but the new concessions on offer will undoubtedly give Harper & Co. a run for their money.
The two headliners set to make their debut are two Philly staples in their own way: Manco and Manco Pizza, a Jersey traditional for 55 years, and Colbie’s Southern Kissed Chicken, former Phillies slugger Ryan Howard’s new restaurant.
Both can be seen in the featured image of this blog, and, by God, do they look good. As a kid whose family has been going down to Ocean City for decades, I’m incredibly excited to see Manco and Manco make their way to the ballpark. Maybe I’ll finally be able to get my mom to a game.
Plus, Howard’s aptly-named signature sandwich, “The Big Piece” will be served up in the concourse.
Is this one of the better off-seasons in Phillies history?
Middleton went out and landed two of the biggest names in the Philadelphia fan consciousness. It’s rare to see savvy business and happy fans, especially in this town, but they’re walking the line perfectly in 2022.
Neither of those options for you? Well, first, seek God.
But once you’ve made peace with your maker, there are plenty of new options for even the most heretical baseball fan. You’ve got P.J. Whelihan’s wicked chicken nachos, burnt end cheesesteaks, and Impossible cheesesteak (both of which I will let slide because Philly can do whatever the fuck we want).
You can also indulge in Aramark’s new “Dare to Pair” burger with… peanut butter and jelly?
You know what, I’m sure I’ll have a couple of drinks and give it a go.
Speaking of drinks, the Phillies are taking “summer fun” to a whole new level. The team has signed on Klyr Rum as a sponsor, and the spirit will be available throughout Citizens Bank Park.
I don’t know about you, but I know my favorite Sixers beat reporter will be indulging in that offering once the team is eventually bounced out of the playoffs due to Doc Rivers’ incompetence. But I digress.
Opening Day is this Friday, April 8th, so if you’re hungry (or thirsty) for something new, get on down to The Bank and tap in.
