Prudential Center Spotlight: Concessions
Cheese steaks. Sausages. Zeppoles. Sound like a day at the boardwalk? How about On the Boardwalk, just one of the unique concessions offered at the Prudential Center.
At the Devils’ new home, guests have plenty of reasons to lick their chops. Whether it’s a heaping pile of barbeque pork from JT’s BBQ, a New York Dog from Top Dog, or the burning Defcon wings from 7 City Grill, there’s something to whet everyone’s appetite at the Rock.
For fans looking to snack on typical arena fare, the 7 City Grill has it all. Hot dogs, hamburgers, chicken fingers, and pretzels are all on the menu. Meanwhile, Famous Famiglia’s dishes out pizza by the slice, as well as whole pies. Both of these stands are conveniently located throughout both concourses.
Mucho Nachos and Top Dog, like their names imply, also offer arena favorites, but throw in some extras that should leave fans both happy and full. Top your plate of nachos off with more than cheese by adding chicken or beef at the several Mucho Nachos stands around the concourse. At Top Dog, take a bite of the spicy Texas Dog, complete with chili, bacon and jalapenos, or fill yourself up with the LA Okie Dog, two hot dogs wrapped in pastrami, drizzled with chili and covered in cheese.
For more belly busters, the upper concourse’s Taste of Newark section is the place to go. Local eateries, including Jimmy Buff’s, Hobby’s Deli, King’s, and El Pastor, have all set up shop at The Rock. Jimmy Buff’s serves Italian hot dogs, while Hobby’s offers a sampling from their extensive menu in the form of their famous pastrami , turkey and corned beef sandwiches.
The One Sushi has Asian staples like egg rolls, General Tso’s chicken and beef and broccoli, but also prepares its fresh seafood rolls daily. If Japanese cuisine isn’t your style, check out the Harvest Table and grab a piping hot, grilled chicken and mozzarella panini sandwich.
Simply looking for munchies and snacks? Try some honey-roasted peanuts or chocolate-covered pretzels at the Newark Nut Company. For sweets, grab a brownie and a steaming cup of hot chocolate at Mrs. Field’s, or visit Carvel, and scoop up the popular souvenir helmet ice cream cup.
Whatever you’re eating in the food court-like concourses, wash it down with a soda from New Jersey’s own Boylan Bottling Company, offered at nearly every concession area. Also, be sure to check out the Prudential Center’s wide selection of beers, including a number of imported and domestic spirits, with a select number of microbrews available.
