More dining options await Durham Bulls fans

Posted April 1, 2014

There was standing room only at the Durham Bulls Athletic Park as the Bulls take on the Norfolk Tides Saturday, August 24, 2013 in Durham, NC.  The crowd of 11,536 was the third largest in the park's history.

— Durham Bulls fans have even more dining options as they head to the ballpark this season.

At the Durham Bulls Athletic Park, there will be more concession stands, meaning shorter wait times, Bulls' Marketing Director Scott Carter says. 

Jackie's Landing, a new 10,000 square-foot area above the first base concourse, will house two new concessions stands and the 42 Bar, which will have liquor, wine and craft beer. 

One of the new concession stands, Smokehouse BBQ, will serve ribs, pork sandwiches and Carolina Que hot dogs. Next door is the new Triangle Fish Camp, which will serve up fresh shrimp plates and sandwiches and fried fish sandwiches and platters.

Carter said fans are really going to enjoy the Jackie's Landing area because it boasts a full view of the field. Previously, all concession stands were out of view of the playing field. 

In the new entry plaza off of Blackwell Street, under the famous Snorting Bull, you will find the new Mexican restaurant El Toro Taqueria. 

On the main concourse, there are new Wings stands on both sides of the stadium. Behind home plate, a Wurst Shop will be serving up everything from natural, unsmoked brats to elk sausage.

The membership-only PNC Triangle Club will have nightly menus prepared by the stadium's in-house chef and a private bar.  

Beer fans will have more than 70 brews, including a lot of local and craft brews, to choose from this season at the DBAP. If you try them all this season, you will get a free Bulls beer stein. Just get a punch card from the concession stand to keep track which ones you've tried. 

Want to grab a bite outside the stadium? 

The Diamond View III building in the American Tobacco Campus right across the street has several new dining options for fans. 

Moe's Southwest Grill and the sandwich shop Which Wich join Cuban Revolution, Mellow Mushroom, Tobacco Road and Tyler's Taproom.

Pitmaster Ed Mitchell is also opening his new barbecue restaurant 'Que in the Diamond View Building. It is expected to be open by the end of the month.

    You've obviously never been to a game. I go to many games each season, and not once have I ever felt unsafe.

    Looks pretty meat-heavy. Next time please include some yummy vegan options that are a little more enviro, health and animal friendly!

    Not true these days and down town is very well patrolled. Just enter and exit the downtown area from the west (towards Duke) and you'll be fine.

    Someone who has no clue what they're talking about. I work in this area every day. I love the way downtown Durham has turned out.

    Sounds like a good time all around!

    They've done a really nice job with this park.
