There is hardly a truer cross-over than can be found in the melting pot of sports and food. Plus it’s good to have something to do with your mouth (like eating) other than yell at opposing players and referees.

Elevating the game even higher, the food-on-a-stick genre of snacking and munching has opened up a million new possibilities. One such beacon of light in the on-a-stick industry is Portland’s Batter on Deck.

An established food truck in the notably wondrous environment of like-minded cooks and food aficionados in Portland, Batter on Deck is a must-try for fiends of the fried variety.

What to order

Batter on Deck is both a celebration of stick-based delivery systems and baseball — something the greater Portland area has been lacking lately. Though they only make two things (with various modifications), it’s the corn dogs that truly shine. However, we can’t blame you if you pick up some heavily loaded tornado potatoes.

With options like hot, Polish, turkey, chicken, and beef dogs, plunged on a stick and fried up to perfection, there is almost nothing better one can do with their hands than eating one of these bad boys.
