With the likelihood of so many new fans coming to the Cell this year, I'd like to start a listing of some of the best food and drink at Sox Park, both inside and out. Please also include good values that you have found and any tricks of the trade you'd like to share (if you can get premium beer for the same price as regular in the stands for instance). My favorite eats is definately Beltin Bill's Brats with a ton of kraut on top and mustard.

I sit behind the bull pen in left so I go to my girl Heather at the Beers of the World stand in the corner and get a nice cold Budweiser. On hot days she will always give me an extra cup half filled with ice to put the cup with beer in so the bottom half doesn't get warm. For food I like the corn off the cob in center field, sometimes it's behind first base. Jose knows just how I like it....with everything.

I really don't eat at the park too much, I usually grab something before I hop on the train or if we get there early we usually tailgate and grill.

The best meal I've had there was a couple of years ago when soxfan13 deep fried a turkey for our tailgate.

That really sucks that they only have those in the club level, those are awesome. I also like that when you sit up there you get a bag of chips with everything. I always end up eating a couple of those because my friends don't eat them.

You go to Beers of the World for Budweiser?!? :smile: Corona or German beer for me.


For food, I always go for the Polish with grilled onions and dark mustard, a order of the curly fries (different stand) and for dessert, I'd walk around the park for some chocolate Dippin Dots. Churros are my second choice, first choice in cold weather :)

I always start out with an ice cold Beck's from beers of the world. But there have been some really hot days where the beer started to cake to the side of my cup and there was nothing that could quench my thirst. It was on one such day that I remembered the ICEES served out in right field. Honestly when its so hot and nothing else works I am not ashamed to say that a cherry icee is where its at. I even turned my buddies into believers.

As far as food goes well I guess it depends on what I have a taste for. Corn off the cobb is definitely up there. Usually my dad will pull out the grill and we'll have something to eat in the parking lot so at the park im good with a bag of peanuts. Fischer ones are my favorite. Salted peanuts go great with beer.

Yeah, the steak sandwiches at Old Comiskey were incredible when I was a kid. Not nearly as good now but I still think food at the Cell is way better than at other ball parks. Especially if you contrast it with Wrigley where they somehow manage to make Nachos taste bad. I thought that was impossible but they proved me wrong.

The best drink has to be Goose Island Octoberfest from the beers of the world. The reasoning being if they are serving octoberfest beer think of what kind of game it is!:smile:

They are o.k., but nowhere near what I am use to from the street vendors I usually get them from. They don't load it up even half as much as I'm use to. Elotes great, from the cell I'll pass.

Whatever happened to the great Mai Tai's they used to have a couple of years ago? They had them at a couple of places, the only place they have them now is in the bar and they taste horrible. If it's a hot day and I'm sitting in the sun I'll drink the frozen strawberry margaritas.

Corn Beef on Rye with mounds ofchips and a pickle! Right Field Corner, best in the park. At this same stand is the most bizzare food - the mini deep fried tacos, that taste suspiciously like the old Jack-in-the-Box tacos.

1) Corn loaded is definitely great and

2) The quesadillas with salsa and jalapenos from Coachs' Corner is great too

Our food is SO SUPERIOR (choice wise and taste wise) to the food from that other ball park in town!

I ordered those mini-tacos once, and was really disappointed. Like folded-up corn chips with meat inside, and there were only a few.

I need to get my hands on one of these steak pitas... I usually dwell in the upper deck, where the elusive pita rarely lurks. :lurkers

Good point. Polish sausages are so much better when they're nice and crispy. I can't stand them when not cooked enough. Gyros are the same way. Much better if the meat is cut off and then grilled for a bit. Brings the flavor out.

2.Long Island from the skyline bar (worth every penny)
3.Margarita

Burnt Polish with burnt onions and mustard is my all time favorite.

The chicken "tacos" at what used to be called the Cuervo Cantina in straight away center field are the best deal for the money. They're more the size of little burritos and think they're only $3.50 or something like that.

I discovered the steak sammich last year. It's pretty good but they put American cheese on 'em. :?: This season I'm going to order the steak sammich w/grilled onions and then slap on my own smuggled in mozzerella cheese.

The corned beef sammich in the right field corner is really good, but once again I'm gonna have to smuggle in my own swiss cheese for those babies.

In the park:

2. Chicken Sandwich (ask for mayo)
3. Brat with onions and ketchup
4. Italian sausage with peppers and ketchup

Outside of the park:

When my wife and I went to look at our season ticket seats over the winter we stumbled across Maxwell Street Pork Chop Sandwiches. It's at 31st and Canal. Comes with onions and fries, is under $3.00 and is delicious.

I really should not be contributing to this thread before dinner.

You guys are all nuts. The best food and value is Maxwell St stand on 31st just a few blocks from the stadium. That place is the single best food option for sox games. Not only is it a multiple stop affair but its so good and so cheap. You can get your hot dog, polish, dbl cheese, pork sandwhich (all come with fries) and a pop for like $2.50-$3.50. Its so good sometimes we make multiple stops both before and after the game. Mmmmmm I can imagine it alrady on those warm summer nights.

I gotta go with the Kosher dog. Does anyone else agree that the Chico Carrasquel Kosher Dogs/Polish stand behind home plate is the best in the park? I swear I will walk further just to make it to that specific stand. Also dollar dog days is an amazing deal, but not for the dollar hot dogs the venders carry, but rather the reduced price ones on the concourse.

Ah yes Maxwell St Depot. You'll be standing in line for, say a cheesburger, polish & a hot dog, with 5 guys in front of you, you'll start hearing the people in front of you...
Gimme 10 burgers, 5 hot dogs 2 polish
Gimme 5 polish, 2 dogs 4 burgers
by the time they get to you your simple order just went from 1 burger to 3 burgers 1 hot dog to 4 hot dogs and 1 polish to three polishes
Amazing business marketing right there.

Oh yeah they refuse to put ketchup on anything, if you ask they will only point to the end of the counter where a single lonely ketchup bottle sits, and you must shamefully unwrap your food and put ketchup on your food in front of everyone (i've done it anyway though)

Let's see, I always front-load, well before the game. Tailgating is great, but on days that I rely on ballpark fare, I have eaten and savored (but not at once, the list covers many visits to Comiskey/The Cell):

A slice of Connie's Pizza
An Italian Beef Sandwich
A Corned Beef Sandwich with chips and a pickle
A Brat smothered with grilled onions and mustard
A ballpark hot dog with lots of chopped onions and mustard
Curly Fries
Chicken Strips
A cold Pepsi
A Lemon Chill
A Dove Bar
An Ice Cream Sandwich w/large and soft chocolate chip cookies
An occasional MGD
More Cold Pepsi
Bag of Peanuts


Of course, I sampled other ballpark foods at The Cell, but these are my faves. With thoughts of White Sox baseball and the great food that goes with it, it's Ash Wednesday tomorrow.

I absolutely LOVE the huge cheese quesadilla that you can buy either out in center field (near the Fan Deck) or around Sec. 110. It's not only loaded with cheese and is literally the size of the plate, but they smother it with salsa, lettuce, jalapenos, and tomatoes- YUM! All that for only $2.50!

My runner-up would be the nachos in the clear, plastic container with one side filled with cheese and the other with salsa that you can buy around Sec. 110 (along with that awesome quesadilla). While I love nachos, I also love chips & salsa, so that's a great combination for only $4.50 or $4.75.

Both options are a cheap way for me to eat and leave the ballpark full!

Love all the love for Maxwell Street. I made my choice on what I eat at the ballpark on Dollar Hot Dog Thursday ($2.50 Koshers, Peanuts / Nachos and a few Budweisers). Most other games I hit the Maxwell Street stand and than have a few beers and peanuts at the game (the plan for Opening Night).

Maxwell Street - YYYYYYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!

It used to be a taco joint and it was awesome. I used to go there for lunch if I had to go and pick up tickets at will call. I don't know if they changed owners or just the format but it's a hamburger place now, haven't been there though.

Maybe not during a buerhle game but during a nationaly televised extra inning affair I may take a run at it.

Food and baseball go hand in hand IMO.

For tailgaiting, I love hot dogs, Jewel store bought taco dip (seriously...it's addictive particularly if you heat it up), potato salad, this year I am hoping to branch out and make chili ahead of time and bring it in thermoses for cold spring games, and I have some spice rubs I'd like to put on steaks on the grill too.

For inside the ball park, I say you can't beat a cheddarwurst. I am also a big fan of the margarita man. Whoever posted above that if you're a boozehound you should hit him at the bottom of the pack wasn't kidding. One night he gave me a drink with the tail end of his supply. It was like getting 3/4 glass of booze and 1/4 mixer. Only margarita I needed that night!

Only one month left, folks. Good thing we have ST to tide us over.

Last year for a tailgate one night we got flat Italian sausages, put some mozzarela cheese and red sauce on them....they were the bomb.

Has anyone ever done the grand slam at a game before? The kosher dog, brat, polish and italian all in the same game? There's no way in heck I would be able to do it but I have heard people do it.


I haven't ever done it, but I'm sure I could and will certainly try. I'm not exactly svelt, though.

As far as best foods at the Cell go, I'd go with Brat w/ Kraut, Miller Lite, Corned Beef Sangy, and Chocolate Churros.

Also, just talking about this stuff makes me realize how much I can't friggin' wait for the season to start so I can be there for opening day. Let's Go White Sox!

Jewel taco dip kicks ass. Too bad it is so expensive.

Oh yeah. I'm gonna go pick up some Jewel taco dip later on today, now. I prefer it cold, though.

And yes, I have consumed an entire package (the bigger one) in one sitting.

Every time I go to Jewel, I eye that dip. I only buy it for games though because it definetly ain't cheap. I'm going to figure out how to make something similar in the hopes it'll be cheaper.

No, but I have hit the inside the park homerun of the Kosher Dog, Polish, Corn Dog, and Cheddarwurst all in one game.

If I had about 5 boxes of Pepcid, a 4 hour game, and hadn't eaten for 3 days on a decently warm but not hot summer night I would consume:
-Kosher Dog (WITH KETCHUP!)
-Polish
-Cheddarwurst
-Corn Dog
-Slice of Sausage Pizza
-Curly Fries
-Nachos
-Popcorn
-Chocolate Churro
-Ice Cream Sundae
-Lemon Ice (Those things are wonderful on hot days)
-Cherry Icee
-Pepsi
-Strawberry Margarita

Oh, and the loaded nachos in club level...awesomeness. I have to get tickets to a game up there this year at some point just for the nachos. And the foot long polish.

My personal favorite is the Taco Salad. For 4.00 or whatever it is it actually fills me up almost to the point of being stuffed. You can't beat that.

There were a couple that used to sit in front of us that would always bring Subway sandwiches into the park with them and I always thought that was a pretty good idea.

I did it last year on Opening Day fairly easily...didn't eat breakfast before heading down to the Cell.

You can hardly go wrong with anything at the Cell, but my favorites are the Kosher dogs, curly fries, bratwurst, Miller Lite, the Bullpen Bar has a great burger, and the cheese fries in the Stadium Club are awesome!

Mrs. Aloha swears by the Super Taco in the right field corner.

It's one of the stand down the right field line. It is where they also sell the corned beef sandwiches. I am telling you, if you want to save more money for beer like we all do, then this is the way to go. This and a hot dog fills me up. I forget the name of the stand though. And it's not in a shell or anything. It is in a plastic container with the bottom lined with tortilla chips with all the ingredients put on top. Quite tasty.

The food all over the park is great. I particularly like the corned beef on rye, super tacos, steak pitas and Connie's pizza. Dessert is usually a churro or a helmet sundae. Oh man I wish it were opening day already!

Pork Nacho are a God send. Last year, I bought Club level tickets to several games just to buy those.

Hey does anyone have tickets in Club level and be willing to smuggle out pork nachos?

Steak Pitas are great too.

My favorite eats is definately Beltin Bill's Brats with a ton of kraut on top and mustard.

Brat is king, for sure. The mustard has to be spicy brown, with kraut, and don't forget the sauteed onions. Wash it down with an Amstel. I love to get to the park when the gates open, get a fresh brat & beer, and eat while absorbing the pregame activities - pure baseball heaven!

No doubt. Getting to the park early is the best. No lines, very little crowd noise, open feeling in your seat, etc. Some of my favorite moments during the season.

The Polish Sausage is king, with tons of grilled onions. I don't put anything on it (i.e no ketchup, catsup, or mustard). I just let the sausage juice do its thing.

All of you have been talking up the food on the club level soo much that I had to get tickets there for the ring ceremony! I do have that thing called class, but Sox fans must learn to sacrifice for their team! I can't wait!!! By the way since this has turned into another ketchup fiasco, I put it turkey, chicken, steaks, hot dogs, etc...My family never lets me hear the end of it, but it's the red god and I bow before its almighty flavor.
