After sampling Yankee stadium and red bull arena the food at the rock is crap

 

well apples and oranges comparing hockey to baseball and whatever is played at red bull arena. Baseball stadiums always have more options, they're flat out bigger and have more space for variety. But Yankees Stadium is unbelievably overpriced, and I can't think of anything I've had there that blew me away. Certainly nothing on the level of shake shack

I like the Taste of Newark concessions at the Rock, their pulled pork and gyro are good. :D

The rust also helps saves money as it actually acts like a protective coating over the steal and delays corrosion.

 

Haven't been to the Barclay's Center yet but I can imagine the food inside is a thousand times better than the slop they have at the Rock.

 

 

Also, that rust look is pretty trendy as far as NYC architecture goes in the past 10 years. I personally like it, but I'm in the architecture field so I sip that kool-aid daily when trying to sell this stuff to clients haha..

Yeah, RBA is great, and their beer selection is unbeatable. They have those stands with the huge refrigerators that resemble like a beer depot/bodega. I'm in heaven when I go there.

The beer and food in general at Yankee stadium was actually cheaper.  Soda was cheaper by almost a dollar when I went back in May.

Almost, if not entirelly all of those Taste of Newark Concessions are now operated by Aramark and not the original places that were in there when it opened.

 

Example: The "Italian hot dog" they tried to serve me this past season, they served it on a regular hot dog bun with very little peppers, onions and potatoes.

 

Food at the Rock now is bottom of the barrell.  Barclays has better food, Citi Field has better food, RB Arena has better food, Yankee stadium has better food and even friggin MSG has better food.  The Rock pretty much forces me to eat outside the arena and sometimes that is not much of an option when I am getting to the game at the last minute from work.

Food doesn't make or break stadiums but just fustrated at how sh!tty the Rock is in that respect.

 

Other than that the Rock is a beautiful building.

I have to agree with DevsMan84. The food at the Rock is lacking in selection and quality.  It's at the very bottom of all the other sporting venues I've been to including  the Pepsi Center in Denver and the Wells Fargo Center in Philly. I can't really compare the outdoor venues because I agree it's not apples to apples.  The space is different and the atmosphere of an outdoor venue/event is different.  But if I did compare the of the stadiums I've been to with the rock I'd say the Rock comes in near the bottom of that as well.

 

Love the Rock, hate the beer and food selection.  Oh well.  Not a huge deal to me.

I have no complaints about the food at The Rock but then again I always get the typical arena food like hot dogs, burgers, or chicken tenders and fries. Having been a Yankee Stadium recently I actually feel like I got more quantity from The Rock when it came to their chicken tenders and fries. I also appreciate a bottle of water was only $4 at The Rock in a controlled climate, unlike at Yankee Stadium where it's $5 and your out in 90+ degree weather in the sun.

I haven't been to a $1 hot dog night at The Rock in a few years but I always loved them, even if the bread was sort of stale. It's guess it's part of the charm of a cheap arena dog. :P
