I am surprised no one ever mentions Donnies Pizzeria in front of Armour Park it has some fine tasting pizza and affordable Italian specialties in a neighborhood type environment. I frequent it before I go to Sox games yet we are always the only baseball fans there. What gives?

Its at 33rd and Wells, I've been there several times, they give you a gigantic beef. They don't have any alcohol, however.

The food at the Cell is too good to pass up for the 10 times a year I get to go to games.

I like Donnie's too. Being right next to Jimbo's it's not a bad place to eat before getting a beer and then heading to the game.

Alrighty then - Donnies it is. Tuesday night before the game. Got my seats already. Bought a new Sox hat. (Does that make me less of a fan? :) ) Ready to go!

I'm a big fan of that hot dog place on 35th between Halsted and the Park. Not being a southsider, I know no streets or anything off the beaten path, but that place serves me a fine hot dog.

My problem with in ballpark hotdogs is they don't have all the fixins. It ain't a hotdog unless it has celery salt on it or Maxwell in its name.

The folks at chowhound.com said Donnie's pizza is not very good at all, even went as far as suggesting you might be able to get better in the park. They also said to go elsewhere for a beef.

HOWEVER, one hound raved about the chicken parm sandwich- big, sloppy, and tasty.

Everyone has different tastes, but those guys are usually pretty dependable with their picks and pans.

O'Malley's? Green and White building with a couple of chairs from Old Comiskey out in front?

It's a little far of a walk to the park, but can never go wrong with ricobenes. That place rules

The the steak sandwich at O'Malley's, 35th and Union by the way, with A1 and mozzarella. Yum!

When in town, I always make a point to stop at Schallerís at 37th and Halsted even if there isnít a game. Good cheap meals, a full bar and patriarch Jack Schaller is usually around working the room. Itís a bit of a walk, but a great place to park your car and enjoy pre and post game pops and eats.

Great place. I go for the CARNE ASADA ALA TAMPIQUENA and wash it down with a ice cold bottle of Modelo Negro.

If anyone wants a good steak sandwich, forget Ricobene's. Go to 32nd & May, to La Milanese IMO The Best.

Ricobene's (which is like a Chicago chain now) is terrible. I know the Ricobene family, and no offense, but your food is terrible. Somewhere down the line you lost it, the only thing you guys have left is your breaded steak.

And on another note, Freddie's is the best on earth. I drive there during the week sometimes, when there even isn't a game...and I am about 20 minutes away with tons of similar places by me.

It is on 31st about two or three blocks east of Halsted...I don't know the street names but go there...it is open after games, before games, where there are no games...and it is awesome.

if you get a beef sandwhich ask for an extra bread, they give you so much meat you have to take some off to fit it in your mouth.enough for 2 sandwhichs!
