Where to Eat at Petco Park
With Petco Park now seating at full capacity, Padres fans are taking full advantage of the  diverse, mostly-local collection of restaurants found at the ballpark. Joining San Diego-based names like Puesto and Grand Ole BBQ is a brand known globally for its dumplings, Din Tai Fung. While its famous soup dumplings are not on the menu at the ballpark location, there's a great selection of savory and sweet steamed buns.

For the first time in 630 days, Petco Park will be filled to capacity. NBC 7's Nicole Gomez reports from the park where so many people have been waiting for this.
