It is always nice to visit a ballpark for a second time. I took in San Manuel Stadium in San Bernardino, California last year on my road trip. I remember it scored well and I ate way too many garlic fries and drank too much beer. I also remember they had a pretty decent over the counter dog, but this time I was hunting the real deal, the big time, the wonder of wieners.
I found something close, something that rates pretty damn high on the scale of deliciousness. The Inland Empire 66ers offer a Martin’s Footlong Louisiana Sausage. It is one-half pound of pure cajun tubular goodness. It comes with grilled peppers and onions and a choice of regular and spicy. Being the adventurous type I of course too the quick route to indigestion.
The Louisiana Sausage is eight bucks, but it makes a meal. The only thing you need to make it a complete ballpark dinner is a beer to wash it down with. I made quick work of it, fortunately there were only about 150 other fans in the stadium to see my atrocious ballpark table manners.
Appeal-did you say spicy Louisiana sausage? Score! 5
Ingredients-I am no sausage expert, but that Martin’s sausage was the real deal. The grilled onions and peppers compliment it well. 4.5
Uniqueness-I have seen many sausage offerings, but none that tout being from the Sportsman’s Paradise. 4
Monstrosity Factor-sounds sort of tame until you see it. Gazonga! 4
Value-pricey at first, but you will need no other food after devouring it. 4
Overall Taste-it had me ready to move to Shreveport (and I have been to Shreveport, that’s saying something). 5
