I am going to be to games in Washington, Baltimore, Philly, and Pittsburgh. As part of my quest to hit every stadium, one of the things I am doing is trying to eat the ballpark favorite/signature foods at each one. Anybody who has any suggestions for what I must eat while I'm there would be great. I will take any suggestions for the other parks as well for when I get ready to go to the other stadiums.
Can't wait to get back to Milwaukee over Memorial Day weekend for some more of their great foods.
Always better to keep them in business Mary...if it's as good as you say it is the lines are worth it!
Was back at Wrigley today. I chose "The Heater" to eat this time. It was okay but not something I would get again. The blue cheese colesaw was kind of funky and there wasn't a whole lot of hot sauce to give it any kick. If I go back to Wrigley I will either stick with the Chicago Dog or keep digging until I find something good.
Well thanks Shawn, glad you enjoy it...I'll be sure to let you know!
As always, you are spot on Kurt. I'm leaning towards "The Heater." I love your website and can't wait to see what you have on Toronto since I am headed there in July.
Oh yeah, Wrigleyville's got some great places to get your grub on. I've hear Yak-zie's has good wings, and of course there's Al's Italian beef on Clark St. south of the ballpark a couple blocks, which is like the end-all-be-all of Italian beef. Whenever I'm in Chi-town I always go for that deep dish though...Lou Malnati's is it!
The North Side Twist is a good option if you have someone to share it with. They ran out when I was there, so they ended up giving us three or four jumbo pretzels instead with some of the cinnamon cream cheese. It was good, but I only recommend it if you have the appetite. That's all I had besides a Chicago Dog in the park, but if you want to venture out, Dimo's Wrigley has pretty good pizza, and Hot Doug's has also been recommended. They're both within reasonable walking distance.
Hey Shawn - here is a post from my website about what to eat at Wrigley - hope you don't mind the plug. http://www.ballparkeguides.com/chicago-cubs-wrigley-field-food.php#...
