Where to Eat at SunTrust Park, Home of the Atlanta Braves

April 5, 2017 Chris Fuhrmeister

H&F Burger, Fox Bros., Waffle House, and more local favorites

After 20 summers at Turner Field, the Atlanta Braves have moved into new digs. The Bravos packed their bags and made the 14-mile trip up I-75 to SunTrust Park, which will host its first Major League Baseball regular-season game on Friday, April 14. Among the amenities to be found at the Cobb County stadium is a roster of concessions that includes some of the biggest names from Atlanta’s restaurant scene — there’s much more than hot dogs and peanuts. Here, now, the complete rundown of drinking and dining options at the new home of the Braves.

Coors Light Chop House

A longtime Turner Field hot spot for fans hoping to pound some brews during the game, the Chop House lives on at SunTrust Park. In addition to two large patios overlooking the right field, the updated venue includes a “Below the Chop” section, which hosts private events and allows fans to view the action through the outfield fence. Sections 156-160.

First & Third Hot Dog & Sausage Shack

Georgia restaurateur, cookbook author, and Top Chef judge Hugh Acheson has a presence in the ballpark with this shrine to meat in tube form. It’s accessible inside and outside the stadium, and the menu includes “elevated ballpark classics,” with most proteins sourced from Patak Meats in Austell. Chop House Gate.

Gu’s Dumplings

The Krog Street Market stall that was born from now-defunct Buford Highway favorite Gu’s Bistro (RIP) will satisfy those in search of a little spice. Anyone who isn’t in the mood for burgers and sausages should consider Gu’s Zhong-style pork dumplings. Section 148.

Waffle House

America’s greatest diner chain, which just so happens to be headquartered in Norcross, is back for Braves games in 2017. Fans won’t find the full Waffle House menu at this scaled-back outpost, but there are a few favorites available. Look for waffles (obviously), hash browns, and the Texas Philly sandwich. Section 311.

Fox Bros. Bar-B-Q

It’s fitting that the most popular smokehouse in Atlanta would be included at the Braves’ new venue. Jonathan and Just Fox are serving up their celebrated Texas-style barbecue at this field-level stand. Section 153.

Terrapin Taproom

Athens-based Terrapin Beer Co., which is now a subsidiary of MillerCoors, has a taproom and “brew lab” that are accessible from inside SunTrust Park on game days and outside when the Braves aren’t playing. Thirsty baseball fans will find Terrapin staples and new brews concocted at the adjacent lab, and Fox Bros. will provide smoked meats for snacking. Chop House Gate.

H&F Burger

The beefy creation that made Atlanta fall in love with the double-stack isn’t as hard to come by as it used to be, but it’s still delicious. For those who opt to skip C. Ellet’s, the SunTrust Park-adjacent steakhouse from Linton Hopkins, the chef’s burger and fries are waiting inside the stadium. Section 155.

King of Pops

The weather might be pleasant for early-season games, but temperatures are sure to rise to the upper 90s over the summer. Beat the heat with Atlanta’s favorite popsicle purveyor. King of Pops sources locally and uses all-natural ingredients to make frozen treats that are much better than what one might find in the typical supermarket freezer. Centerfield Market.

Taste of Braves Country

There isn’t a dedicated location to feature all the Southern cuisine that will be served at SunTrust Park, but stalls throughout the stadium will offer dishes that highlight states where the Braves reign supreme:

  • South Carolina: Pimento cheese patty melt, served with caramelized onions and smoked paprika on rye. 1871 Grille, Section 141.
  • North Carolina: Smoked whole-hog barbecue sandwich, served on white bread with chopped southern slaw and vinegar sauce. Smokey Q, Sections 113, 343.
  • Tennessee: Nashville hot chicken, served with bread & butter pickles. Fry Box, Section 320.
  • Mississippi: Blackened catfish po’ boy taco, served with slaw and comeback sauce. Taco Factory, Section 151.
  • Alabama: Fried tomahawk pork chop, served on an “extra-large” potato roll with collard green slaw and white barbecue sauce. Braves Big Bites, Section 113.
