Whenever I go to a game the first thing I notice is the smell of the park. I don't know if it's the grilled onions or what but I turn into a kid again when I smell that. The familiar food smell is a comfort.

I don't eat that much stadium food, but I can tell you..

White Sox > Daytona Cubs

and

White Sox > Devil Rays

but thats about it, I don't go to baseball games to eat.

The Cell pales in comparison to old Comiskey. I remember waiting for autographs hours before game time out the park and seeing some Mexicans from the neighborhood wheel in their taco carts. I also remember huge subs being sold down the left-field line for a ridiculously cheap price. I also seem to recall steak sandwhiches. Now, so much of the food is from your basic sports service vendor. While much of the food is tasty, it hardly qualifies as great.

Don't get me wrong. The food at the Cell is still pretty good, and kills any food at Wrigley and any other Chicago stadium. The hot dogs, brats and Italian sausage are the best. That's what makes the food at the Cell special.

They still sell the steak sandwiches. I get one about half the time when I go to games. What they used to have that I miss over the past few years is the fried chicken. When I first got out of college, I'd drive in from Gary, find a seat in left field, get a box of chicken and a couple of beers, and watch Dick Allen, Carlos May, Bill Melton, et al. That was living!

My 13-year-old couldn't stand the thought of season over = no more cotton candy so the last game she bought 4 and brought them home...she was eating it almost until Thanksgiving, just a couple mouthfuls a day to tide her over...what is IN that stuff?

And, the cheapest thing in the park, yep - she points that out every time she asks for her third or fourth per game.

Myself, I just can't get enough of those hot dogs.

Food in Philly is good.. Cheesteaks are awesome.. not as good as the Cell's eats. Their stadium is pretty sweet though. PNC Park has some good stuff, like Primanti Bros. sandwiches (Pittsburgh traditional sandwich, all your meat and veggies, french fries, and cole slaw piled in between your bread, sounds gross at first but its unbelievable)... but the Cell has the best food around, easy.

I ate a funnel cake and it made me feel all sick in my stomach. Someone said that's how it's supposed to be but I disagree. Any food that makes me queazy is a food I don't want to eat!

As for what I eat, I get a pepsi (sometimes a lemmonaide), curly fries and a churros. That's enough for me. Don't they sell something like Tyson's chicken strips. Isn't that like fried chicken?

We've got great Polish but they really need to work on the burgers or at least name the hamburger stands "Bevington Burgers" so the people know what they're getting.

The fajitas on the centerfield concourse are the best kept secret out there. There's never a long line, they're only $3.50, they're the size of a small burrito and they don't taste too bad either.

I haven't been to too many MLB parks other than old Comiskey and the Cell, but of those that I have been to (Wrigley, Miller, PNC, old Cinergy, Busch) there is no comparison. The Cell has the largest selection of food, all of it is of good quality, and some items are particularly tasty.



The sausages are outstanding, the churros are a Cell favorite, and the steak pitas are pretty good too. And let's not even get started on all the options available to those dining in the Bullpen Bar or the Stadium Club restaurant!



On a side note, a buddy of mine works for the food service company that handles food for Wrigley, and he said that the "Shrine" has a real big rat problem. I wouldn't eat food at Wrigley even if someone wanted to pay me to do so.

We definetly have the best food around. I want to get a Glade plug in for my bedroom that smells like the hot dogs and onions that you smell once you walk into the park. Also on a side note about vendors has anyone encountered the hot dog lady that is super quite. My friends and I love her and call her the librarian because she whispers "hot dogs hot dogs" when walking by.

I cannot leave a Sox game without having a polish w/onions, which is unbelievable. Everything else is pretty good (save for the burgers, which are iffy).

And I agree the best part of walking into the Cell is when the smell hits you from all the food--it's like heaven.

BTW I've been to Comerica (food is good there too, huge selection) and of course Wrigley (where the food should be served to Abu Ghraib prisoners). Yuck. How can you ruin a hot dog? They do it at Wrigley...

They do have veggie dogs, but I think it's only at a couple stands. My brother discovered it at one of the last games of the season and ate about 6 of them before the game was over. He got them at one of the concession stands behind the 120 sections. I think he's secretly looking forward to opening day just so he can get a veggie dog! :D:

In addition to veggie dogs, they have veggie burgers at every grill. Just ask for the garden burger. They're ok, good enough as far as fast veggie fare goes.

My weakness is the curly fries. I'm not much for fried or junk food, but I always have to get those. I don't even want to know how bad they are for you. I usually end up skipping dinner just to make room for the curly fries.

I think USCF does have the best food. I know that this holds true when comparing our menu to any stadium in Chicago. Also, USCF has been featured on a Food Network segment, highlighting the Stadium Club. They also mention the great food that is available on the concourse.

Does anyone want the same food that is served in the Club level, throughout the stadium. There are a few select differences in the menu, notably the prices.

seriously, at least once a year I get together with some friends ( who are almost all flub fans ) and we do a "day of baseball". cubs play in the afternoon and sox play at night so we take the L from wrigley to the cell.

having wrigley food for lunch and the food at the cell for dinner has actually gone a long way towards making my flubbie fan friends say that our park isnt so bad. the concourse doesnt hurt either - they are so used to getting splashed with beer and bumped into in the bleachers when they want to have a smoke that our concourse in the outfield is like a dream to them. Nobody has switched sides yet but they all admit its more comfortable to watch a game at the cell and the food is much better than the slop they serve at wrigley. ( A few of them even hold out all day to eat on the south side ) :) :bandance: :) :)

All the food I've had at old Comiskey and the Cell has been very good.

Since I'm down here in the Outback I don't get to see many Bears games. In fact, only 2 in my life time. I went to a Bears/Rams game (they were still in LA so that kind of dates how long ago it was) at Soldier Field and had a brat. It was awful with a capitol "AW". Absolutely no flavor at all. Has anyone else experienced bad food there?

01-12-2005, 08:46 AM
If I eat at Bears games I usually stick to a Bouna Beef sammich, as I'm usually headed for Kitty O'Shea's immediately after for a Shepherd's Pie dinner and a couple 1/2 & 1/2's :D:

they did have some catering in lower end of South end-zone that featured grilled food that looked decent. The sausages there were at least 12" in length :o: , twice as big as need be to fit on the bun... anybody else see these things? They were hilarious...

Also, anyone who eats their brats with anything other than sauerkraut has serious problems.

There is a problem with our ballpark, but it is one you might not guess on the first try. Nope, it's not the bathrooms. Nope, it's not the expensive parking. And while it can be the play on the field, that isn't the answer to my question. The answer is stigma, and more importantly, the negative connotations attatched to our park. Nationally we aren't recognized for our food. We aren't even a blip on the radar, and this must be changed. As dodger dogs are completely (and I mean totally) overhyped, we need to raise awareness at the food at the cell.

Some people wrote a travelers guide to all 30 MLB stadia, and ranked the hot dog in our park 18th (wrigley was 19th). I agree that the cheapo hot dog (non Kosher) is pretty crappy by me, but I think the "sox dog" like the dodger dog is to the dodgers is the Kosher. So I think the Kosher should have been ranked. To their defense, they said they ranked us so lowly because of the lack of toppings. We need to serve our dogs dragged through the garden. This would make the experience so much better.

Part of the problem is that we have good food that's based on traditional ballpark food. I like this: We serve mostly traditional stuff and less of the sushi and overpriced yuppy stuff found at other ballparks. We mostly serve good versions of traditional ballpark food: Dogs, burgers, pizza, nachos, etc.

That being said, we have ethnic, different food such as the numerous mexican options (aside from the enchiladas, all are pretty good), gyros, churros, which I haven't seen any where else, and different things that you wouldn't find at other parks. We also have veggie options for the meatless among us.

But the problem is, we have no recognition for the greatness of our food. We should. We need to get our image out as far as ballpark food is concerned. Catering to different people is good. Not using crappy rollers and grilling the dogs is good. Less lines are good. Low prices are good.

For example, as you all know, grilling onions on the grill next to our dogs and Polishes is a south side tradition. But in that book I read, which was well written and funny and extensive, listed good grilled onions on their dog in the text. While they did say that Wrigley's food was pretty crappy, they said Old Style was served at our park. Most people here don't touch that piss. And I'm not sure if we serve Old Style.

And then, as our signature food, when they could've listed the Polish with Onions, they said bland, cardboardy, overpriced and crappy Connie's Pizza was our sig. food. Wrong.

We know we have good food. And for that matter, we know we won't get our ass kicked at 35th st in the summer. We won't get murdered if we wait for the el after all of the crowds have left. We know that are park is severely underrated, but the question is, how can we change this to be the opposite. How can we spread the truth???
