“Luc’s Ragin’ Cajun” from AJ Bombers

During each homestand, we’ll sample some of the latest and greatest Miller Park fare and review it here, for you.

One of the most fun, new additions to Miller Park this season has been AJ Bombers. The popular restaurant and bar-with locations in Milwaukee and Madison-now occupies the outside space formerly known as the Plaza Pavilion, along the west side of Miller Park near the right-field gate.

AJ Bombers offers a selection of cheeseburgers, egg rolls, tater tots, shakes, custards, specialty concrete mixers and more. The menu also include homestand specials, such as the city-themed concrete mixers and the newest addition: “Luc’s Ragin’ Cajun”.

LUC’S RAGIN’ CAJUN-$9

Lucs Ragin Cajun

Making its debut  tonight,  The Luc’s Ragin’ Cajun is a special burger named after Brewers catcher Jonathan Lucroy.

It’s a Cajun-infused Bombers Burger, topped with white cheddar, Nueske’s Bacon and Sriracha. The appropriately named sandwich is the second of several city and/or player-themed burgers that AJ Bombers plans to offer this season (the first was the “Thornburger.”)

Luc’s burger is exclusive to Miller Park (i.e. not served at AJ Bombers’ restaurants) and available for a limited time.

Double Clutch Menu Item For Diamondbacks Series: Mahi Mahi Tacos

The Brewers are back in town and kick off a nine-game homestand with a three-game set against the Arizona Diamondbacks tonight at Miller Park.

It is Cinco de Mayo tonight and the Brewers will celebrate Mexico’s victory in the Battle of Puebla with Mahi Mahi Tacos at the Double Clutch. The Mahi Mahi is seasoned with cilantro and fresh lime and topped with grilled pineapple and a cilantro slaw. A side of Spanish rice accompanies the two tacos.

Who doesn't love tacos?

This is $9.50 (only $7.25 on Monday for Season Seat Holders with your Brewers SSH Card!) and will be available for each of the three games this week against the Dbacks. I recommend grabbing a fork because this dish is very tasty, but a little messy.

As always, the Spaghetti in a Meatball will also be featured all week for $9.50 (also on sale for $7.25 to those with a Brewers SSH Card Monday only).

The Double Clutch is located on the Loge Level outside section 215 at Miller Park.

Gyro + hot dog + delicious.

This a unique twist on a classic ballpark meal and is $9.50.  It is worth a shot and will only be available this weekend!  As always, the Spaghetti-in-a-Meatball is also available all weekend at the Double Clutch also for $9.50.

Double Clutch Menu Item for the Cardinals Series: St. Louis Stuffed Meatloaf Sandwich

We have reached the last home series of the season.  The Double Clutch is sending the 2013 season out with a bang.  Featured this weekend is a St. Louis Brisket Stuffed Meatloaf Sandwich.  This is not your mom’s meatloaf, that is for sure!

Beef Brisket Stuffed Meatloaf

A sandwich made of meatloaf, stuffed with house smoked beef brisket and cheddar cheese and topped with homemade ancho ketchup give this sandwich tangy, smoked flavor.  This is definitely one of my favorite’s this year.  Served with house made kettle chips and a pickle for $10, it is a delicious meal and a great way to send Brewers fans to the off-season.
