MSG food/beer thread

Hey guys,

Heading to my first Rangers game at MSG this saturday, and I was wondering if there was a specific food that I should (or have to) get at MSG? Every arena or stadium has it's signature concession, what is MSG's?

Get the chicken tenders and fries. It's pretty much the only thing I get at Rangers games. Enjoy the game!

I think all the 'food' there is repulsive but that's me. I usually eat somewhere before going to a game.

Now my friends usually get those nasty nachos with everything under the sun on them. They swear by that thing.

The only arena/stadium food that I think might be somewhat unique to the NYC area would be the knish, but I've never had one at MSG.

Always have been and always will be a fan of the hot pretzel sold out of a shopping cart just outside of MSG right after the game.

same here.

Still, i would not call it a classic food.

Again, the only food that is really NY-ish there is the Kinsh.

The knishes are pretty good although I haven't had one in years.

Speaking of which, what's up with that new invention they are selling this season..it's a hot dog wrapped in a knish? Anyone tried this yet? I may check it out at my next game (1/20 against Atlanta) but I haven't decided yet.

Meh. They were giving out samples at the last game I went to - they might've been better with mustard, but as they were, they were nothing special.

The problem with all of the food at the garden is that it's standard heat-lamp fare. If you get a fresh knish with mustard it's awesome, but way too often they're almost room temperature. Stick with the chicken fingers and fries. The hot dogs aren't bad either, but they're hardly a signature food.

Here's hoping the new Garden (whenever they build it) has some of the fresher freshly made food you find at newer arenas.

food is almost never hot.. always room temp at best.. a cheeseburger the cheese is'nt even melted, and the burgers taste like charcoal on the edges.. fries are soggy and way too salty or no salt at all.. plus you'll wait about 6 hours on line for your food..

the food is pretty bad. even my usual chicken fingers and fries have gone down hill. in the past few games they've either been out of fingers, or the oil was bad...thus no fingers to be had. pathetic. not to mention there isn't one employee with an iq of over 79 (highest score still qualifying for borderline deficiency) in the whole place...talk about stupid and slow, it's horrible.

Yeah (1) soggy fries are a all to frequent problem lately.

and (2) the staff is the absolute worst.


Go into a McDonalds or a Wendys in mid-town at lunch hour. the staff is flying all over the place. You get your food in seconds. At MSG, they can take 3-4 minutes a person, just to get a Fingers & Fries that are sitting at the counter behind them. its unreal.

They hire the lowest of the low.

Yeah the fries have been a bit soggy lately. I got a good batch against Philly last week though.

I agree the staff is terrible. Although it doesn't help when you have the rich people who get free tickets and couldn't name any players take 10 minutes to decide what they want. Sometimes I sneak over to the pizza booth next to the chicken booth to avoid the lines but it's way too slow sometimes. And they also forget to give you honey mustard from time to time as well.

Yikes, classic MSG food? There really isn't any. Some people like the knish, but I think it's kinda poorly done. There's good ice cream, Edy's, though I haven't been to the Garden this year so IDK if it's still there.

Will you be around long enough before the game to grab a bite outside the Garden? If you're in the city, there are dozens of places I'd recommend.

There are plenty of good places to eat before you go in. It's better food and a bit cheaper.

the beer is 7 bucks a pop. also, the footlong isn't bad. the cheeseburger is okay.
i usually go somewhere outside MSG first though. and also, BRING YOUR OWN BEER. my friend brought a 6 pack of bud in a back pack. he wasn't even checked. we thought it was going to be hard. MSG security is a JOKE.

Food for you

Do yourself a favor and go to the Stage Deli before the game
http://www.stagedeli.com
On 8th at 32 street by the Post Office. Sometimes after the game Rangers will exit MSG on the 8th Ave side at 31 and sign. Enjoy the game and Go Rangers!!!
