April Ball Park Specials

'Fenway Style' Italian Sausage

All-American Chicken Noodle Soup

Garlic Parmesan Fries

Yep folks, it’s that time of year again.  Each spring welcomes back the crack of the bat and the pop of rawhide hitting leather, while the air fills with the unforgettable smell of glove oil, fresh cut grass, and hot dogs and sausages on the grill. 

Yes, baseball is back!  And we at JJ’s have a few new menu items on deck to lead off the season.

 Whether it’s on Lansdown St., Brookline Avenue, or Yawkey Way, anyone entering or leaving Fenway Park can attest to the popularity of the ever-present Italian sausage stands.  

We’ve chosen to feature Sahlen’s Italian sausage (a product of Buffalo, NY—go Bisons!) for the month of April, topping it with a smoky-sweet chili sauce (inspired by Jon Luther’s great aunt Dorothy Dragich) along with sautéed onions and peppers and Weber’s mustard. It’s spicy, smoky, sweet, and tastes good even in the cheap seats.

Our featured side item for April offers ‘Giant’ flavor—our take on the popular San Francisco ballpark garlic fries.  Crispy french fries topped with fresh grated Pecorino cheese, finely chopped garlic, and minced parsley.

And finally, for soup, we chose to do something as comforting and as American as the beginning of a new baseball season itself—chicken noodle.  We didn’t reinvent the wheel here, relying rather on the memory-conjuring power of this most traditional soup.  A home run every time.

With all these great new, limited-time only options, why not swing for the fences and make it a combo.  Our Full Count Combo scores you a char-grilled Italian sausage, your choice of either garlic fries or soup, AND a drink, for only $6.99!
