Roundup Of NBA, NFL, NHL, And MLB Teams That Have A Kosher Food Stand

42

This list has been updated for 2017, please post a comment if you know of any other changes.


It’s hard to find a comprehensive list of kosher stands in sports stadiums, so here is a list of sports teams that have a kosher food stand.

It’s also tough to keep the list updated, so if you know of stands that no longer exist or new ones that have opened please post a comment!

Be sure to do your own research on Rabbinical supervision before heading to the game.

Bear in mind that some stadiums may have multiple kosher food options.  For example at Yankee Stadium there is the regular kosher stand and then there is a full no-expenses spared catered event with all-you-can-eat gourmet kosher food that is free for Legends Suites ticketholders.  The Legends Suites kosher food are even under a different rabbinical supervising agency then the regular kosher stand.  The Legends Suites menu also changes on a daily basis.  I was invited to sit in Legends Suites at an Indians game several years ago and wrote about it in this post.  Apparently it has gotten even better since then. If you are sitting in the Delta Suites or the Field MVP club you can also purchase food from Legends Suites.

Chicago

Though not in the stadium Milt’s is very close by and an easy walk

Mikey

Hey,Dan,we have only One sport the sport of collecting miles !

Dan

@Chicago:
Yup, parked at Milt’s had lunch, and walked to the Cubbies game myself :)

@Mikey:
And I like using some of those miles to make memories at away games :)

philly

According to this, the Flyers/76ers now have a kosher stand too

Dan

@philly:
Nice, thanks!

Baltimore

The Baltimore Ravens also have a kosher stand.

Dan

@Baltimore:
My understanding is that closed years ago.

B

The Detroit Lions had a stand under the Detroit Vaad’s supervision at one point, but are not currently. Are they under someone else’s supervision now?

Chacham

The wells fargo center in Philadelphia where the sixers and flyers play has a new kosher stand under the vaad of Philadelphia keystone k

Steve

Staples Center in LA (Clippers, Lakers and Kings) has packaged kosher sandwiches and wraps, etc available in Outtakes near section 104. Requested Kosher food when I had SPG suite seats a couple weeks ago – they gave us $50 worth of vouchers to use at that concession stand to get kosher food

Dan

@Steve:
Most stadiums let you bring in outside food, so I’m only counting hot food in this list.

Pghtown

Nothing at the Verizon Center in Washington (Wizards/Capitals)??

Yosef

Hi Dan. I was at a Ravens game this past season. The Kosher stand was up and running!

Dan

@Pghtown:
My understanding is that it closed down.

@Yosef:
Updated, thanks!

Illinois

Apparently the fighting illini basketball team have a kosher stand as well. Does this list include college teams?

yankel

some (many) brooklyn nets tickets also include unlimited food which includes kosher. the stands are separate but the clubs are operated by abigails. the ticketsnow club has been known to have better selections than the court side calvin klein, but both have a nice variety. you can go into the tickets now lounge and pay or your seat may include free food and drinks

too tired

Not the Detroit Pistons!

Ben

Are we talking passover too or just year round?

Andy

Funny how despite Toronto’s overall abysmal kosher food scene, they manage to have great kosher concessions stands at all major league games.

Maryland

@Illinois:
The University of Maryland has a kosher stand at basketball games as well (all Big Ten games, and select nonconference games)

Alexander

I believe 2 of the Toronto teams are owned by supposedly a frum Jew!

Anonymous

@Alexander: false

Anonymous

@Alexander: The Toronto teams are owned by Rogers and Bell Canada, so there is no frum ownership. The kosher stand for the Blue Jays was actually started in 2004 when I was doing work for them and insisted on a kosher stand. Same for the Florida Panthers a few years later.

Marc

@B: Kosher stand for the Lions had a different hashgacha in 2015 and was then gone in 2016.

jeff

does anyone know which kosher food stands are by the nj devils stadium?

Rabbi Red

Unfortunately the stand at Toyota Center (Rockets Arena) in Houston closed 2 years ago.

Dave

The KC Royals have a new kosher hot dog stand opening this year. Catered by Kohns from St. Louis

Nechemia

Not major league…Brooklyn Cyclones!

Eliezer

Hi Dan, Off topic question: You always write that a business amex card does not report on your credit. To which extent? Just the spending amount or also going over the limit, or requesting a credit increase has no effect?

OtherIllinois

If it is still open, the Kosher stand at Soldier Field (Bears) is not certified by the CRC, not sure who they are certified by (if at all) at the moment.

myi

Cool to know that most of the games I went to had a kosher stand!
Now the hardest part about these is where they are located? Would love to have a detailed post about where each stand is located on what level and near which row and column? Or do the vendors move around every so often?
(while we’re at that with the location, most have a minyan for mincha and maariv which would be the most amazing info to know! (worth a million $s that info, nut would take lots of time and effort! Just expounding on the ideas.. You never kknow a dream come true! Lol

Paul

Personal q ,,dan do you keep a diary of all the exciting things that you experienced in you life? what’s triggered me to ask you that was how you remembered that legends suite game a couple of years back? Do you have a diary or something f similar that you write in?thank I’m trying to get inspired to write my own

Misterstuf

In addition to what myi asked about location and minyans, I think It would be great to get menus and ownership names (For instance: Carlos and Gabby’s has the concession at MSG – Knicks and Rangerss) for each venue to know what choices we’d have at the games.

mike

the l.a. lakers clippers and kings do not have a kosher food stand but they do sell star-k certified prepraed food- sandwiches, salads, falafel. decently priced for a stadium

Shaul

Interesting that MLB has the most Kosher stands- even though they’re always 2 games per week on Fri/Sat, whereas the NFL is lagging even though games are rarely on Shabbos. I wonder if it’s due to MLB being more “frum” or if it has to do with the number of overall home games (81 minus Shabbos games) vs. 10 (8 plus 2 pre-season) minus a rare shabbos.

@Dan: Mendel is leaving?

Judah

@Shaul:
Obviously more overall games equals more potential revenue hence MLB the most “worth it”

Chuck2

Toronto Blue Jays / the Rogers Centre has some of the best kosher food available in a stadium that I’ve tasted ( yes I know Barclays Center…) from old Spadina.

Moshe

Interesting the New England Patriots have no Kosher food listed. Is that currently accurate?
