The Peoria Chiefs open the 2018 baseball season next week.
But the kitchen staff is ready now.
The Chiefs have unveiled new Dozer park food items that include Philly Fries, Mac-n-Cheese wedges and BBQ Parfaits.
“Some teams are known for their food items, and that’s what we’re going for here, to find that standout item that the Peoria Chiefs can be known for here in town,” said Chiefs director of media Nathan Baliva. “And also throughout the Midwest League and minor league baseball. We want to find what ours is going to be that we can compete with those teams in.”
The “Grand Slam,” a bratwurst served over a Bavarian pretzel, was among the well-received new itmes unveiled before a media testing audience on Tuesday. The Chiefs’ home opener is next Saturday, April 7.
