Admittedly, I have never had a Lobster Roll at an MLB ballpark. Moreover, I don’t remember ever having one in my life. Whereas – I have enjoyed dozens of Dodger Dogs in my lifetime – and there is definitely something different about them. Especially if you can get the grilled variety as opposed to the steamed.
Now, the Dodger Dog has been named the top food item in the ‘World Series of Ballpark Food’ by the MLB London Official twitter account. You can see the final results below, as voted upon by twitter users.

Equally important – this is probably because the Dodger Dog is the most world renowned food in the entire baseball world. Even though I follow and write about the Dodgers, I struggle to think of a food more synonymous with America’s Past Time.
You go to the ballpark, you get a hot dog. That’s just what people do. Above all, this gives the Dodgers’ staple food item a leg-up on everything else in the field.
Comparatively, maybe it comes down to price. Not that the Dodger Dog is a cheap item in Tinseltown. However, the Lobster Roll doesn’t appear to come at a value bargain price according to one fan.

It won’t be long, and we will all have the chance to make our Dodger Dog how we like it once again. If you’re like me, you’ll relish (no pun) in the opportunity to get pavilion seats only so you can sneak down five dogs and claim you only did two. Any true fan of the Dodger Dog knows you eat one before you head back up to the seats so whoever you’re with doesn’t realize you are a slob.
What do you think? Is the Dodger Dog the best baseball food item? And most importantly: how do you like your Dodger Dog? Tell us in the comments!
