Best Places to Eat and Drink Near Tropicana Field


Before the season started, Eno Sarris of The Hardball Times tweeted out a question to fellow baseball writers. He wanted to know the best places to eat and drink near and in every stadium in Major League Baseball. Always open to spreading the word, I eagerly volunteered.

Between Jessica Quiroli of Heels on the Field, Erik Hahmann of DRaysBay, Zack Meisel, Tim Britton, and myself, Sarris received 16 different places to partake around the Trop and a good heads-up of the best fares inside the Trop. Sarris then plotted our suggestions on The Hardball Times Major League Food Map, an interactive map where users can not only plot but also zoom in to find the exact location of the establishment.

It is an awesome project and highly recommended.

Among my suggestions:

  • Ferg’s
  • La Terasita
  • The Columbia
  • Jerk Hut

Jessica Quiroli’s suggestions:

  • Front Porch Grill
  • Mikey’s Cafe and Bakery

Erik Hahmann’s suggestions:

  • El Cap Restaurant
  • Coney Island Sandwich Shop
  • Engine No9
  • Taco Bus
  • Urban Brew and BBQ
  • Bodega on Central
  • Red Mesa Mercado

  • Applebee’s
  • Crowley’s Downtown
