Who’s on First? Border Grill Catering!

While our signature tacos and Border guacamole are a hit at any party, our catering team loves to push the envelope with customized menus and dishes. So when we got a call from a repeat client about catering their baseball-themed birthday party, we were super excited to think outside the box and get creative!

Baseball-Themed Birthday Challenge: What kind of stadium food do guests enjoy most while watching their favorite teams?

Although Modern Mexican cuisine is what our chefs are best known for, we’ve been putting an inventive spin on recipes from around the world for many years. Needless to say, we were game for this baseball-themed birthday challenge!

Here in sunny Los Angeles, we know Dodger Dogs are always a fan fave, but what about all the amazing local food served at other stadiums around the country? We rounded up the best stadium eats, gave them a unique Border Grill twist, and put together our lineup of elevated ballpark fare.

Philadelphia Phillies: Philly Cheese Steaks

We took a swing at the classic Philly Cheese Steak Sandwich from Citizens Bank Park and scored! Our chefs created a mouthwatering appetizer featuring thinly sliced carne asada, grilled onions and peppers, and finished with a homemade cheese sauce. Coupled with a cool, delicious cole slaw, this was a fantastic way to start off the party!

New York Mets: Lobster Rolls

Citi Field offers a lobster roll that we were dying to recreate. We drizzled the lobster with malt vinegar aioli and crunchy celery. Served alongside seasoned Belgian fries, the lobster roll was a home run!

Next at bat: Pulled Pork and Chicken Tender Sliders

Busch stadium, home to the St. Louis Cardinals, is known for killer chicken tenders and pulled pork sliders. So naturally, we went for the double play – a pulled pork and chicken tender combo. Topped with a tangy, sweet homemade bbq sauce, and sliced pickles, we served them with a side of baked beans. Definitely worth stealing a second.

Los Angeles: Dodger Dogs

We couldn’t forget about our boys in blue! Inspired by Dodger Stadium’s Dodger Dogs, we served up all-beef hot dogs, and included a variety of toppings – bacon, chopped onions, relish, ketchup and mustard. We grilled up another gametime favorite too, Frito Pie Dogs! Who can resist chili, Fritos and cheese on top of a warm all beef frank?
