These days, ballpark food is about way more than beer and peanuts. Now you can feast on gourmet sandwiches, gluten-free Asian noodles, and even sushi between innings. Here are our picks for the tastiest (and sometimes healthiest) food at stadiums nationwide, no rubbery hot dogs in sight.

G
Nationals Park, Washington D.C.
Top Chef star Mike Isabella opened a branch of his luscious Italian sandwich shop at Nationals Park in 2014. He works magic with healthy fillings like roasted cauliflower atop pickled veggies, though his signature is garlicky, savory chicken Parmesan.

Daruma of Tokyo
Citi Field, New York City
Yes, you can get sushi at a ballpark—and it’s actually quite good. There’s a limited assortment of traditional rolls (spicy tuna, California), plus low-cal sides like edamame, shumai, and kani salad.

LA Taqueria
Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles
The street-food-style tacos at LA Taqueria are delicious and easy to tote through the park. Choose from simple fillings like carne asada or carnitas, topped with onions, cilantro, and hot sauce. Bonus: Many menu items are gluten-free.

Tasty Burger
Fenway Park, Boston
In 2014, hometown haunt Tasty Burger was named Fenway’s official burger purveyor. Tasty makes a special burger nominated by a fan at each home game, and toppings range from indulgent (French onion dip) to refreshing (marinated veggies).

Harry the K’s
Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia
This in-park restaurant has a massive menu and gives equal billing to treats (Philly steak spring rolls, pierogies) and lighter fare (black bean burgers, vegetable grinders). Wash down your meal with champagne.

Tako Korean BBQ
Orioles Park at Camden Yards, Baltimore
Here, fans can snack virtuously on cold pad Thai noodle salad, edamame bao, or made-to-order marinated chicken tacos topped with kim chi or zingy Asian slaw. There are plenty of gluten-free choices, too.

Just4u
PNC Park, Pittsburgh
This concession stand caters to vegetarian and allergy-sensitive diners. They stock vegetable panini, tomato and mozzarella salad, and sweet potato chips. Purists will appreciate the gluten-free hot dogs and gluten-free nachos.

High Plains Bison Cart
Wrigley Field, Chicago
High Plains provides the “official lean meat” for the Chicago Cubs—bison, FYI, is low in saturated fat and sodium. At their cart, find bison dogs, burgers, and bison specials like lean bratwurst sandwiches.

Melissa’s Farmers Market
Yankee Stadium, New York City
A farmer’s market inside a baseball stadium? Believe it: Melissa’s has an array of fresh fruits and veggies, plus salads to go, for those who eschew peanuts and crackerjacks.
