Badger fans at Camp Randall have been treated to a number of new additions to the venue's concession menu through the first weeks of the 2013 season. A notable weak point of the complex in the past (though as recently as the team's home opener in August there were complaints regarding lines), the expansion of options is an effort to enhance the experience of Camp Randall say officials. Complimenting the new menus is an increased number of vendors as well.
Levy Restaurants has been at the helm of the project. The award-winning stadium vending supplier is in their first year of a new contract with Wisconsin Athletics, a significant partnership with one of the most successful entertainment and sports venue food specialists. Levy pioneered the in-stadium restaurant, now especially popular in major league baseball, and manages four locations inside the Walt Disney World Resort.
Back in Madison, the company has worked closely with school and Camp Randall staff to debut four new dishes at the stadium this year. A bean based chicken salad has proven to be one of the more popular choices thus far, though the Po Taters Tumble and meat-loaded Bucky's Nachos have suffered no love-loss either.
For the more daring among us, the last addition to the concessions menu can satisfy those not content with just their chicken salad. The daunting Bucky Burger comes on a pretzel bun topped with cheese, pickles, Bucky's secret sauce, and a whole brat.
Back-by-popular demand features have also been reintroduced by Levy's at Camp Randall. No salads on this menu.
- Chips served under sliced brats and cheese curds with nacho sauce, jalapeños peppers, salsa, and sour cream on the side.
The Badger Stack
- An egg McMuffin with a brat instead of a sausage patty.
Pot Roast Sandwich
- Slow roasted pork served with all the toppings.
Early Badger Bucket
- For fans whose taste buds know no limits. Included in a party-style bucket are a hot dog, a brat, peanuts, and a large soda.
