Colts roll out new concessions menu for 2019 home season

Hoosier Duck Nachos

Fans attending Indianapolis Colts games at Lucas Oil Stadium this season will see a new concessions menu that mixes creativity with the familiar.

Colts hospitality vendor Centerplate announced Thursday that it has added several food items that aren’t typically found at sporting events, plus some that feel right at home. It also revised the beverage menu with new beer offerings.

Among the new menu items:

— Chicken waffle sandwich basket ($10), with crispy fried spicy chicken breast, smoked bacon, locally sourced maple syrup, maple waffles and strawberry jam.

— Fried mushroom po’ boy basket ($9), with fried portobello mushroom slices, fresh spinach and garlic aioli on a baguette.

— Hoosier duck nachos ($12), with queso blanco cheese, shredded duck, pico de gallo and sour cream.

— Nacho fries ($7), with chorizo and Hatch chili cheese sauce.

— Heartland cheesesteaks ($12), featuring shaved seasoned beef, onions, peppers, and beer cheese sauce.

— Jumbo Colts forged hot dog, an Eisenberg Angus Beef hot hog topped with chopped bacon and sweet corn relish.

— Buffalo chicken basket ($9.50), a deep-fried breaded chicken breast dipped in buffalo sauce, served on a bun with fries.

— Burgers of the Game with fries ($10) include the Buckhead Burger (cheddar cheese, breaded green tomato, grilled peach BBQ sauce), Green Chili Burger (green chilis and tri-colored tortilla chips) and Carolina BBQ Burger (cheddar cheese, vinegar pulled pork and battered fried pickles).

Three “healthier” options all priced at $8 also have been added to the menu: the Circle City Cobb Salad, Beets & Greens Salad  and California Wrap.

Large domestic beers (Budweiser, Bud Light, Michelob Ultra, Miller Lite and Coors Light) are priced at $12. Large premium beers (Shock Top, Estrella Jalisco, Blue Moon and Modelo) run $14.

Craft beer flights ($10) offer three choices among Metazoa Hoppopotamus, 4 Day Ray Blood Orange, St Joseph’s Kolsch, 2 Deep Cream Ale, Sun King Wee Mac, or Sun King Osiris.

Also added to the drink menu are flavored seltzers and souvenir cocktails.

Among a host of items being added to the suite menu are three-foot Italian subs, tenderloin and shrimp kabobs, creamy corn dip, warm pretzel bites, mac & cheese fritters, goose sausage and beef barbacoa tacos.

“Each season, we look to improve and enhance every aspect of the Colts gameday experience, which of course includes the many and varied food and beverage offerings throughout the stadium,” said Roger VanDerSnick, Colts chief sales & marketing officer, in written remarks. “We are excited we are able to highlight the vibrant Indianapolis culinary culture at our games, all while adding new options to an already exciting and satisfying menu.”

  1. Let’s have some fun:
    1. Chicken waffle sandwich basket ($10), with crispy fried spicy chicken breast, smoked bacon, locally sourced maple syrup, maple waffles and strawberry jam. YES PLEASE, load up on carbs, fat, and salt. Sounds yummy.
    2. Fried mushroom po’ boy basket ($9), with fried portobello mushroom slices, fresh spinach and garlic aioli on a baguette. Half of Hoosers don’t know what aioli. Just slather some mayo on it and cal it a day. Not my cup of tea.
    3. Hoosier duck nachos – JUST WALK AWAY.
    4. Nacho fries ($7), with chorizo and Hatch chili cheese sauce – Luv me some chorizo. Why would you muck it up by adding chili? See #1 on not good for you but probably tasty especially if hungover.
    5. Heartland cheesesteaks ($12), featuring shaved seasoned beef, onions, peppers, and beer cheese sauce. Yawn.
    6. Jumbo Colts forged hot dog, an Eisenberg Angus Beef hot hog topped with chopped bacon and sweet corn relish. What is a “forged” hot dog? Any why waste Angus beef in a hot dog which is loaded with all kinds of pieces and parts you don’t want to know about. Bacon on a hot dog? Why not!
    7. Buffalo chicken basket ($9.50), a deep-fried breaded chicken breast dipped in buffalo sauce, served on a bun with fries. Yawn.
    8. Burgers of the Game with fries ($10) include the Buckhead Burger (cheddar cheese, breaded green tomato, grilled peach BBQ sauce), Green Chili Burger (green chilis and tri-colored tortilla chips) and Carolina BBQ Burger (cheddar cheese, vinegar pulled pork and battered fried pickles). First one sound interesting, second one has tortilla chips on a burger?, and OMG #3 is a calorie dream!
    9. Three “healthier” options all priced at $8 also have been added to the menu: the Circle City Cobb Salad, Beets & Greens Salad and California Wrap. LOVE LOVE LOVE they put “healthier” in quotes! Who wants to eat a salad at a football game? I like beets, but I’m in the distinct minority on that. And, again, it’s a freaking salad. “Yeah, Bob, get me a beer and a beet salad, dressing on the side!” said no one ever. California wrap – is this the 90s?

    Come on, weigh in!

  2. I was wondering why they don’t represent Indiana”s own “The breaded Tenderloin” much like Philadelphia sells the Philly Cheesesteak sandwich. Come on Indiana, where is your vision? lol
