If you ever find yourself craving a ballpark hot dog or "Cardinals Nation Nachos," you no longer have to buy a ticket or even wait until game day to get your favorite baseball fare.

That's because the team is rolling out the new Cardinals Nation food truck, which will serve Cardinals Nation Restaurant items and new creations outside the stadium on game days, at special events and at various lunchtime locations around the city.

Favorites such as "Four Cheese Mac and Cheese" and those "Cardinals Nation Nachos" are two of the ten entrees listed on the menu. New items include selections such as the "Twisted Cheddar Brat" and "Bacon Ribs."

Nate Green, Cardinals Nation Director of Operations, stated in a press release than many local products are being used to put the menu together.

“Products like G&W sausages and hot dogs, Companion Bread Co., and a Different Twist Pretzel Company really help make these fun menu choices a reality," he said.

The Cardinals Nation Food Truck has been in the works since last year. What began as a 20-foot diesel truck from Degel Truck Center in Hazelwood went on to Schantz Manufacturing in Highland, Illinois, to get a custom box kitchen build.

Cardinals president Bill DeWitt III sees the food truck as an opportunity to add to the game day experience around Busch Stadium.

“It also allows us to take Cardinals Nation Restaurant on the road and bring the ballpark atmosphere to our fans around the region," DeWitt said in a press release.

The food truck is expected to make its first appearance for service early next week, and it will be located at 8th and Walnut streets on game days. For updates and lunch service locations, fans can follow the Cardinals Nation food truck on Twitter, Facebook and the Cardinals website. To book the food truck for your corporate or social event, call 314-345-9880. You can check out the complete menu here.
