You're in Oriole Park at Camden Yards for the game, but that doesn't mean you can't eat well, too — and this year, the Baltimore park has really stepped up its stadium dining options. Here's where to head for tacos, triple-decker burgers, local pizza, craft beer, and more.

What's New at Camden Yards

Baltimore Burger Bar — Replacing Gino's, this spot offers hamburgers and cheeseburgers, including one with thick-cut bacon, barbecue sauce, battered onion rings, and cheddar cheese that can come served with up to three patties. Where: Eutaw Street below Roof Deck near Gate H.

The Chipper — At this stand, get nacho-style kettle chips. Options include the "crab chipper" with lump crabmeat, white cheddar cheese sauce, chopped scallions, and Old Bay. (There are also bacon and pulled pork versions, plus a dessert chipper made with sweet potato chips, chocolate and caramel sauces, whipped cream, and cinnamon sugar.) Where: Section 68 in the lower level third base concourse.

Ole Mole — New this year, Ole Mole sells soft tacos with fillings like barbacoa, pulled chicken, seasoned beef, and black beans, along with churros. Where: Section 31 in the lower level first base concourse near Gate D.

Esskay Gourmet — Hot dog newcomer Esskay Gourmet takes the place of Stuggy's. In addition to serving its predecessor's well-known crab mac-and-cheese dog, the stand sells items like the bacon chili cheese dog and crab dip dog. Where: Eutaw Street below Roof Deck near Gate H.

Smithfield Corners — The Camden-style pork burger at Smithfield comes with barbecue sauce, coleslaw, and fried onions sandwiched between the two buns. Where: Section 5 in the lower-level first base concourse near Gate C.

Pizza Boli's — A Baltimore favorite for over two decades, Pizza Boli's opens three outposts in the Orioles stadium this year. There's one on each level of the ballpark, and they'll each serve cheese and pepperoni pies. Where: Sections 37, 222, 366.

Also of Note at the Stadium

Flying Dog Grill — Two words: Chesapeake fries. These crab dip-topped waffle fries, mourned by fans at the end of the season, are a must-try for Camden Yards newcomers. Where: Section 27; the fries can also be found elsewhere throughout the stadium.

Boog's BBQ — How often do former All-Star first basemen open up barbecue stands in their old stomping grounds? Boog Powell did so, and now fans can get sandwiches and platters of his smoked beef, pork, and turkey. Where: Eutaw Street, under the orange tent behind the centerfield bleachers.

Dempsey's Brew Pub & Restaurant — Dempsey's offers a full menu along with house-brewed beers. Named after Rick Dempsey, Orioles Hall of Fame catcher and '83 World Series MVP, the sit-down, full-service restaurant starts serving early and stays open late on game days. It's also open year round. Where: Eutaw Street.

More — TAKO Korean BBQ (53), Kosher Sports (78), a strong regional beer selection at Free State Pub (53), and many gluten-free and vegetarian options around the park. On the suite level, look for menu items from Camden Yards chef Josh Distenfield that include a jumbo crab and melted cheese pretzel. For fans with Club Level tickets, check out All-Star Cafe, the "marketplace-style" food court that serves until the fifth inning.
