New ballpark food offered at White Sox home games includes Cevapcici, Buffalo Wings & Vienna Beef Hot Dogs w/ Pastrami Bacon

Also new at Sox Park: "Irish Nacho Helmet" - French fries with cheese, sour cream, bacon, chives served in a kelly green souvenir helmet

Didn't catch this the 1st go-around: US Cellular Field will be serving Minnesota favorite "Juicy Lucy" Burgers - cheese/bacon-stuffed patty

Something that sounded amazing until I read the bacon part. I love pastrami. Do they sell regular pastrami sandwiches at the park, anyone know?

I'd be willing to bet its pastrami that's fried up like bacon so it's nice and crispy.

The more things they sell in souvenir helmets the better.

Keep in mind that some of this stuff might be Club level or Premium areas only, I know they announced some stuff last year or the year before that ended up not being available to the general public...

Like that foot long meatball sandwich or whatever it was that I heard about last year.

well I had to look it up on Wikipedia so in case anyone cares:

ćevapčići is a grilled dish of minced meat, a type of kebab (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kebab), found traditionally in the countries of southeastern Europe (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southeastern_Europe)

Isn't there an 'Irish' stand in the Patio Party Deck? I'd be willing to bet that's where the Irish Nachos will be.

If there's one benefit to the potentially miserable season the Sox are about to embark on, it's that you can probably sit almost anywhere in the park for an affordable rate if you play your cards right. And the Club Level is most definitely a place to check out if you have never done so. I've been up there only a few times, generally it's out of my price range, but keep an eye on StubHub. You're lucky like me in that getting to Sox Park at the last minute isn't entirely impossible, so if you really want to do it, you probably could.

EDIT - Just checked - Thursday, April 19 vs. Baltimore, up to 3 tickets in Row 3 of Section 346 = $27/each on StubHub.

It's kind of like a sausage without a casing; it's sold at just about every street festival in the city. Hopefully they'll have ajvar (the spicy pepper/vegetable puree) to put on it.

I split premium box seats but I like to visit the Club level once or twice a year- it is a different game experience. Even cheaper than Stubhub (no fees) - if you buy Value Monday club seats through the box office or the season ticket charge line you can get club seats for $26.50 each. I picked up the Tigers game on July 23 for $26.50 each and I was able to get Row 1 in section 314

Yes they had Irish Nachos out in the Irish stand in center field - not in the helmet but is a paper basket. They werent too good.. I like to take a walk out there because I believe it is the only area in the park that they have Guiness on tap.

Let's be honest. The ballpark food isn't that good anymore. It used to be good. Now it's overrated. You would never buy most of it outside the park.

Would have to agree. I thought maybe the churros thing was because of the particular stand I went to, but having visited more than one where they were cold and stale, I'd say it's a problem across the board.

When the new park opened I thought the food was pretty darn good. About the only item I really care for now is the italian sausage and beef combo in the bullpen sports bar. Everything else is pretty much meh.

And I completely agree the loss of kosher dogs was a crime. I hope someone got fired over that decision.

I really liked it. But I'm not picky about pizza at all. If it's got enough cheese and the crust is nice and crunchy, I'm happy.

How about adding strips of bacon to the ballpark menu . . . just strips of bacon . . . sell them in bunches of five or ten strips, either crispy, or a little softer . . . the key is bacon . . . must offer bacon . . . because bacon is good.

The Kosher dogs at New Yankee Stadium are the best ballpark dogs, Kosher or otherwise. I've ever had. Alternatively, I've had some terrible ballpark Kosher dogs, so it's all about the brand.

While I loved the Kosher Dogs, I would never degrade Vienna Beef by calling it a "huge step down". It's a shade below Kosher. The Bobak sausages/brats the Sox use are also excellent.

While Best Kosher is surely missed, Sox ballpark food is still head and shoulders over most sports teams.

Been to a Bears or Hawks game lately? Yuck. The Hawks are at least trying with new menu items/stands but the quality is still lacking.

While it is an anecdote I remember reading once and I am not sure how true it is, I've always liked that USCF is supposedly the only park where kosher (-style, as they have never been Kosher) dogs outsell the regular ones.

Can't figure out why they have never brought the Asian Noodle stands up from the Cactus League. They are the most popular item in every Arizona spring training park and for good reason. Actually any Thai or Chinese items would be nice (although I don't like the Wao Bao stand)

Okay – after reading this article I realized that these will surely be my downfall: Ballpark treats - New candied popcorn and pretzel braids

I've spent way too much time in the dentist's chair over the last couple of weeks. I need to remember to stay away from these “ballpark treats.” Also bad for my waistline.
