Frankly speaking, only the hot diggity-est of dogs was going to make it into rotation on our seasoned Roller Grille. Our wiener? The crunchy, juicy, salty, yum-in-a-bun goodness of Ball Park Franks. Made of 100% low-fat, full-flavor Angus Beef that plumps when you cook ‘em, snaps when you bite ‘em and satisfies all the way through to its juicy center, the Ball Park Frank is as authentic as it gets. Born in a ballpark at Tiger Stadium in Detroit more than 50 years ago, today it remains top dog in a league of it’s own. Devoured “as-is” hot and fresh off the Roller Grille or after all dressed up at our condiment station, Ball Park Franks are the perfect tailgate taste to accompany our endless summer. What else do you need?
