Peoria Chief's new expanded menu

Peoria Chief’s opening day is less than a month away, despite today’s wintry conditions across Central Illinois. This year game-goers will be able to experience three new hot-dog options. Rocky Vonachen is the president of the Peoria Chief’s. He says fans can vote online for their favorite loaded hot dog. 

“Food is part of the experience when going to the ballpark or sporting event. And so, we’re always looking for new things to add to our concession menu, and these are some of the things we came up with. We just need to narrow it down so we’re asking the fans to help,” says Vonachen.

There are eight hot dog options including the Loaded Spud, Philly, Fiesta, Cheesy Mac, Porker, Fire Cracker, Reuben and Italian Pizza. The top three choices will be added to the season menu at the ballpark.  Fans can 

vote for their favorite on the Chief’s facebook page until midnight Tuesday. Opening day for the Chief’s is April 4. Tickets go on sale tomorrow.
