The Beltre Buster, The Rangers Ballpark in Arlington

The Rangers Ballpark in Arlington has a reputation for selling Texas-sized foods. For $26, you can order The Beltre Buster, a beastly burger that boasts one pound of beef covered in half a pound of bacon, grilled onions, monterrey jack cheese and served on a pretzel bun. If that's not enough, it comes with a side of potato chips.

Brunch Burger, PNC Park

Earlier this year, PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania unveiled the Brunch Burger selling at the concessionaire Aramark. Ringing in at $10.75, this culinary creation combines fresh ground bacon-and-beef patties, house-made maple bacon, aged cheddar cheese and a fried egg, all tucked within a grilled glazed donut. When asked about the calorie count, Aramark executive chef Rich Montini told MLB.com, “It's ridiculous. It's through the roof, but the first thing they tell you in culinary school is, 'Fat is flavor.' That thing is full of flavor."

Murph-A-Dilla, The Rangers Ballpark in Arlington

Another Rangers Ballpark creation is the Murph-A-Dilla, named after baseball outfielder and Mexican food lover David Murphy. The 24-inch flatbread cheddar cheese quesadilla is topped with brisket, lettuce, pico, nacho cheese and jalapeno peppers and served on a bed of Dorito’s Nacho Cheese. An EPSN article estimates the dish to be nearly 3,000 calories.
