Los Angeles might be a big, sprawling city but when baseball season comes around each April, it’s a Dodger town. While some Angelenos may not consider themselves huge baseball fans, everyone has a lot of love for the Dodgers.
Whether you’re itching to get out to the field to watch Clayton Kershaw’s fastball or Yasiel Puig’s celebratory tongue wag, knowing where to grab the best takeout on your way into the game is sure to make you a fan favorite. Here are six restaurants for great takeout with easy access to Dodger Stadium.

Veggie, vegan, and meat lovers can all find common ground at Two Boots: an NYC institution making its mark on the West Coast with its famous cornmeal-crusted pizza. Grab a slice at the Echo Park location and chow down during the twenty-minute walk to Dodger Stadium.
Address: 1818 W. Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026
The Little Jewel of New Orleans
Located in Historic Chinatown, a few minutes walk from the Dodger Stadium Express Shuttle, The Little Jewel of New Orleans grocery and deli packs all of the southern charm of New Orleans into their authentic Louisiana fare. Beignets, Po’Boys, Fried Catfish and Crawfish mac n’ cheese are just a few of the highlights.

Located just 10-minutes walking from Dodger Stadium, this American-style sandwich spot isn’t afraid to put a new spin on the traditional staples. Go for the brisket, pulled pork or the Reuben if you are feeling traditional, or check out their namesake Trencher — an open-faced sandwich topped with smoked salmon, avocado, sliced egg, red onions, cucumbers, green and rosemary aioli on rye — if you want to mix things up a bit.

Stop by Button Mash’s arcade bar in Echo Park, for an expansive range of bar eats infused with creative Asian flavors. Depending on your hunger level, you can order small, medium or large entrees ranging from crispy tofu balls and double-fried Tamarind chicken wings to a spicy Korean pork belly sandwich.
Address: 1391 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026
Boo’s Philly Cheesesteaks
A good cheesesteak is hard to come by in L.A. but Amoroso’s hearth-baked rolls and ribeye steak flew in directly from Philadelphia guarantee you’re getting the real deal when you visit Boo’s. Whether you’re a huge cheesesteak fan, or just saw Chrissy Teigen’s tweet raving about the piping hot steak topped with cheese whiz, Boo’s is just a 25-minute bus ride from Dodger Stadium.
Address: 4501 Fountain Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90029

Guisados is known for its stewed and braised tacos (beef, chicken, pork, vegetable or seafood) served on fresh handmade tortillas and fun pregame atmosphere thanks to its proximity to the stadium (just 8-minutes walking). Wash it all down with a cinnamon rice milk horchata, hibiscus iced tea or cantaloupe water.
Address: 1261 Sunset Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90026
