After having served takeout and carryout lunches from the ballpark for more than two months, the RiverDogs are transitioning to offering weekend meal kits and special takeout lunch on Fridays only, starting with "Make Fun Burger Friday" on Friday, June 12th.
Both the Friday burger lunch specials and weekend meal kits will be available for pickup only from the ballpark from 11 am to 3 pm on Friday. Ordering at riverdogs.com will be open Monday of each week and continue through 3 pm on Friday. The team has been offering takeout and delivery options cooked up by VP of food and beverage Josh Shea since early April.
“As we work to prepare the ballpark to re-open for different types of events as restrictions ease, we’re excited to unveil our new Friday pickup menu,” RiverDogs president and general manager Dave Echols said. “Our focus will shift a bit away from takeout food options, but we wanted to ensure the community can continue to enjoy ballpark favorites.”
This week’s Friday lunch menu features eight signature burgers – all served with truffled herb fries – and six signature sides. Highlighting the menu is the Smokin’ Chucktown Brunch Burger (pictured at right), topped with local shrimp and a tomato gravy on a grit-cake bun, which was recently named one of the best burgers in Minor League Baseball on milb.com. The menu also features some old favorites like the Smoked Cotton Candy Jacked Burger (featured at the ballpark in 2017) and even a burger in honor of the RiverDogs’ relationship with the Samsung Lions of the Korean Baseball League – the Samsung Bulgogi Burger. All burgers on the menu are available in limited quantity each week.
Families can also rely on Chef Shea for their weekend meals by ordering ahead for family-sized meal kits available for pickup on Fridays, including the “Staycation for Two” and “Charleston Brunch” boxes. Shea has also released several new barbecue-themed meal kits, including ribs, wings and pulled pork meals.
