You want to grab a bite to eat before or after the game, but where should you go? Are you craving a burger, some seafood or a great special? The neighborhoods surrounding the ballparks have a lot to offer. Check out some of the hot spots to grab a bite to eat when you are taking in a game in Baltimore.

Boog’s Barbecue

Oriole Park at Camden Yards
W. Lee St.
Baltimore, Md. 21201

John Wesley “Boog” Powell is a former Baltimore Orioles player and opened a BBQ stand in 1993 at Oriole Park at Camden Yards. Fans are drawn to get in line way before they even see the green tent behind the center field bleachers on Eutaw Street from the smells that are circulating through the air from the hickory-smoked beef, pork and turkey which are all then covered in a BBQ sauce. You can also find Boog’s Barbecue at the All-Star Café on the Oriole Park Club Level. And sometimes, you’ll find Boog Powell signing autographs and serving the food.
