Need a bite to eat before a Dodger game? There’s plenty of good eats to choose from in Echo Park near the ballpark, Eater LA reports. At Cosa Buona in Echo Park, folks can walk away with wings, two pizzas, a six pack of beer or a bottle of wine for a set price. Baby Blues BBQ has a fixed special for a bucket of beer, ribs, cornbread, and beans. Burgers, fries and a drink are offered for less than $10 at Patra Burgers. Button Mash is another choice for those who crave video games, tofu balls, ramen and burgers.
