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.

I'm starting to plan my trips for this summer. As of right now I have a trip to Colorado planned for July. I also have my big trip planned for Detroit, Toronto, and Cleveland. Again I will be looking to eat the ballpark favorite/signature food at each park. I got a lot of great suggestions last year and again would like any suggestions you guys may have.

Last games of the year in Kansas City. I went with the Ribeye Stack sandwich, which after everything I had heard was supposed to be great. Sad to say but I was greatly disappointed. You would think a sandwich with ribeye, mushrooms, onion rings, cheddar cheese, bacon, bbq sauce, lettuce, and tomato would be unbelievable. Unfortunately, the ribeye was like eating rubber, which ruined the whole sandwich. Anybody going to Kansas City, I would advice you get the BBQ Fries. They are covered in BBQ pork and a very solid BBQ sauce. A must get for anybody who wants some solid BBQ at the K.

I will be at the Royals game on Sept. 1.  I have heard that the rib eye stack sandwich is pretty good.  Anybody else with tips would be great.

Went with the Primantin Brothers sandwich last night in Pittsburgh. What a great sandwich. I don't like cole slaw, but on the sandwich it was excellent.  What a great 4 day trip.  Great games, great food, great times.  Can't wait to hit Kansas City on Sept. 1.

Don't want to argue with Bill, he's right, but you might want to stop by Pop's Potato Patch, big basket of fries with chili and cheese (probably too much for one person as I found out).

I couldn't patronize "Familee BBQ"--I'm an O's fan who never got over 1979 and I still hate that song!

If you have a chance, go to peppi's in pittsburgh and get a sandwich there. I had the "7" (aka roethlis-burger) and the heath when i was last there. Very good sandwiches. As for inside, ive read good reviews about the bbq pulled pork pierogi sandwich. Forget the name but its at a bbq stand. I believe it's "Familee BBQ"

Another day, another park, another great game, and more great food.  Was in Philly tonight for the Phillies and Braves game.  For the 3rd straight game saw a great pitching performance, with Hamels throwing a 5 hit shutout.  I enjoyed the Schmitter tonight.  That thing was delicious.  The dressing really brought the sandwich together.  I had a cheese steak later on in the game, but they were out of cheese whiz, so I didn't enjoy it as much.  Beautiful stadium.  I will be in Pittsburgh tomorrow to finish up my trip.

Nothing to do with the food, but you also got to see two pretty spectacular games, Strasburg in Washington and Tillman in Baltimore.

Wasn't lying about the Half Smoke...I'm going to D.C. in September, can't wait to scarf one!

Another stadium down.  Had the Boog's BBQ pork sandwich with the sauce.  It was delicious.  Boog himself was there today.  Encourage everyone to try it.  My buddy I went to the game with says it is better then the half smoke.
