The Durham Bulls will feature a variety of new food items at Durham Bulls Athletic Park for the 2019 season, highlighted by the team's Wiener Waffle, Mac and Cheese Dog, Patty Melt, Waffle Mac and Mushroom Swiss Burger. All items have been created by Bull City Hospitality, the Bulls' food and beverage company. View all the food items here.
The Wiener Waffle is a new take on the traditional hot dog, as the team's famous Bright Leaf Hot Dog will be served in a waffle bun. Fans will be encouraged to experiment with condiments, ranging from placing ketchup on a waffle to syrup on a hot dog.
"These new options are meant to be fun for our fans," Durham Bulls Vice President Mike Birling said. "Food is a huge part of the game day experience, and game days are meant to be fun. We hope everyone who comes to the DBAP this year enjoys all the food options we offer, and can get creative with them, too."
The Mac and Cheese Dog features mac and cheese loaded on top of a hot dog. The item is designed to be a nostalgic option for fans who grew up on hot dog pieces cut up and placed into a bowl of mac and cheese.
The Patty Melt is the stadium's delicious burger prepared in a new way. The meat will be padded down and served between two pieces of Texas Toast, topped with melted cheese, bacon and grilled onions.
Waffle Mac is just as much about the toppings as it is the main course. Served in a waffle bowl, mac and cheese will be topped with grilled chicken, bacon and chives.
The Applegate Mushroom Swiss Burger is 70 percent beef and 30 percent mushroom, blended into a burger patty. The new option will be served with swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato and onion.
