Is Top Dog still around. I got food from there before but when I went to the Islanders game this past week it looked like Nathans took over their stand. Are they still around?

There is a map of Devils foods that says its still there, but I never tried it, I personally dont like the type of dogs they have. I prefer Jimmy Buffs

All the food @ the Rock is good. Jimmy Buffs hot dogs and the funnel cakes along with the zeppolies are just awesome.

It's a Nathans stand now but as of the last game they still "had" the Top Dog dogs there. My gripe with this place is that on three different nights, I went there looking to get a dog, but they weren't ready yet. They told me come back in 20 minutes and they'd be ready. I go back 20 minutes later, and they say everything is cooking and it will be 10 more minutes. Go back again in 10 minutes and they say they don't have the Pastrami to make the LA Okie dog. Ugh. I've given up on the stand.

I've noticed a lot of mismanagement of the concession stands this season so far. If you get there early, many of the stands have absolutely nothing available and you have to wait.

All I wanted was a pretzel one night during the 2nd intermission, and not one stand on the upper concourse had one. I finally get back to the one below my section and the girl says it will be five minutes and I wait. Five minutes later she says she can't give it to me because it's ice cold.

I did see they had comment cards at all of the stands though. I'm thinking of filling one out. Can't hurt. I'd probably get a call from Vanderbeek, knowing him. :D

That's funny. My wife always wants to get the paninis. I had one once and liked it too. But everyone's tastes are different.

I bumped this thread up in case anyone has any comments on the food available inside The Rock. I know they got rid of some of the food options that were offered last season. Here's the current list:

Has anyone gotten the meatloaf from Hobby's that Chico got in Chico Eats? It looked like a seriously hearty portion, but I'm afraid that since Hobby's is grotesquely overpriced that it would be like $20 or something.

For my money, Jimmy Buff's is still the sh!t. Double with everything. Makes me fart so bad that I have to get a seat on the train by the bathroom just so I can excuse myself every five minutes to bust some lethal ass.

Actually that list is from last season and a lot of those places are gone. Habana Grill, Harvest Table, El Pastor and Kings are no longer. On the Boardwalk is also upstairs now, under 232. JT's BBQ is also now in the Tastes of Newark and there is a new Gyro stand there as well. There have also been a couple Thuman's Deli stands on the concourses. I think one is near the Fire Lounge and one is by the slap shot game upstairs.

I had assumed the Devils had updated that list. I never know where anything is when I'm there, so I always end up getting the same old things, usually a burger. Thanks for providing an update. :cheers:

Yeah, Chico mentioned that approximate price in his Chico Eats segment. It sure did look tasty.

We did the restaurant last night at The Rock for the first time. And possibly last time.

What a mess. The food was good (buffet), but the procedure is crazy. Everyone had a different story: do this; no you can't do that; no you can't sit there; this is not available to you where you are sitting; if you came early you could order from this menu, but not now.

Mr. Vanderbeek will be receiving a letter from me highlighting the insanity we experienced. Hopefully others have had a better experience.

I see nothing has changed. I went there with my family on opening night and it was a terrible experience. I have not returned since!

We always do, on weekend games. Weeknight games we only get there in time to hit the Gyro Joint upstairs.

I wouldn't call it a terrible experience, just "not as advertised" and thus disappointing. The waiter tried to be accommodating, but he could only do so much, even offered to get me a plate from the buffet (as I'm recovering from knee surgery).

Ah nice, thanks. If the actual portions are as hearty as they looked in the segment, that might be worth it.

GYRO ZONE!! Call it OCD, but I go to a ton of games and after the 2nd period during that intermission I have to get a gyro from there.. Look for a 6'3" 20 yr old in a Brodeur jersey at Sunday's game getting a gyro from Gyro Zone

Heh, you're one section over from us.

They also have decent baklava there. But after a gyro and bakalava, I can barely stand when the Devs score.
