On Friday, I tried the "Texas style" BBQ brisket sandwich. While as a sandwich it was good, it was a far cry from authentic Texas BBQ. On the plus side the meat was very tender. Unfortunately it lacked any taste of hickory smoke. In addition the beef was swimming in sauce (authentic Texas BBQ is served with the sauce on the side). The meat was sliced too thinly and there was so much sauce on the sandwich, it was incredibly messy. I had to go to the washroom holding my hands out in front of me so I did not get sauce all over myself. I suppose if you want something new, it is okay - just don't expect anything close to "authentic Texas BBQ."

In order to add the BBQ it seems like they eliminated the Italian beef. This is too bad because it was a decent Italian beef. But even worse IMHO, the spicy chicken sandwich is gone.:angry:

Has anyone tried the Greek sausage? If so, what's it like?

How about the "Super Comiskey" hot dog? Is it worth the price of nearly 2 jumbo Kosher dogs?

I don't know, but I did have a cheeseburger, fries and some pop Monday, which did not agree with my stomach at all.

I'll be having a churro at tomorrow afternoon's game.

Are those Super Comiskey dogs only found at certain concession stands? Is there only 1 cart with them? I was too lazy to look for them Fri and Sat, since I knew if I left, when I came back my seat would be wet again from the constant rain :angry:

The Greek sausage is right behind my section. May give it a whirl next time I am at a game. It sure looks good.

Unrelated, but related: I went to get my first Super Taco of the season behind 110 yesterday in the sixth. The woman there told me they only had one left and couldn't make any more. I bought the one and it was kinda stale..not a good way to start off the season from a culinary perspective. :angryfire :angryfire :rolleyes

STAY AWAY FROM THE SUPER COMISKEY DOG!

Its location at 1 stand in RF, little tiny stand.

They give you a footlong box

The Super Comiskey Dog is about 8-9 inches long, not a footlong

It cost 8.50

It is smothered in relish, with a tiny bit of Chopped Onion and Tomato

worst of all, its thinner then a non kosher dog.

My advice is just get 2 kosher dogs, much more meat, better, and you do not feel like you are eating all bun

Mrs. ws05champs had a funnel cake on Monday and was sick for 2 days. Don't know if that was the cause but we couldn't figure what else could have caused it.

I tried the Super Taco last year and thought it was good and it agreed with me okay. Since I am in the UD I didn't think it was good enough to make a special trip down to the lower deck to try it again. How can they have stale tacos so early in the season?

I was going to say that could very well be the cause. I NEVER eat fried or greasy foods, but I decided to get a Monte Cristo sandwich the other day, and I spent about 48 hours recovering from it. My stomach just doesn't handle stuff like that well at all since I never eat it, even overly sweet muffins get to me. Kind of says something about how people condition themselves to eat food that isn't supposed to be going into their bodies.

Theres a Comiskey Dog area of the concession stand around my section, 538. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) I got in the wrong line and got all the way to the front only to be told I was 1 line too far over. I settled for a regular Kosher, which was good although at room temperature.

Im really curious about this rumor of a pulled buffalo chicken sandwhich...anyone seen these? Sounds interesting.

I think the food in general needs to be improved. Other ballparks seem to be passing us by when for a long time our food was supposed to be some of the best.

My buddy is the USCF purchasing manager for Levy Restaurants. He took me to the different store rooms to show me just how much stuff they have to order for a homestand. It's ridiculous. Anyway, we go to the kitchen, where the hobby for the hour was getting sandwiches ready for the opener (which was the next day). Anyway, I see this guy walk by with this ENORMOUS hot dog. I thought it was a gag of some sort. They actually have a hot dog that's over a pound and two feet long! Amazing.

This could be the case. It was the first game and she never eats greasy stuff like funnel cakes. Plus she didn't do spring training for the stuff (I have a cast iron stomach and funnel cakes even bother me). Yet she almost always buys one. And the people in our section get upset thinking that if she doesn't have her funnel cake, it could be a bad omen. So she took one for the team and I guess as far as the game went, it paid off.

this is a baseball game folks, not a food show... all you need is a hot dog and a beer. my kosher hot dogs on monday and friday were amazing by the way... the beer was just as good :gulp:

You know without spicy chicken and Italian beef sandwiches (except in the Bull Pen Sports Bar). It may just come down to Kosher dogs - which isn't a bad thing - although in a pinch there is always Italian sausage and bratwurst.

I was up in section 546 on Sunday and go to about 5 games a year, but I must say that the Brat stand that is up near section 530 was amazing. The 2 brats I had with grilled onions and peppers were great, I know it's hard to screw up a brat but they were very tasty.

This taco stand you guys are speaking of, is there one up on the 500 level cause I'm a big taco fan?

The beer needs to be a bit colder IMO, the vendor's beers were a tad on the warm side.

The Cell needs a good coffee stand. The coffee at the ballpark is the worst coffee I have ever tasted. It would be nice to have a nice espresso, Latte or such to choose from. I had to sneak in a mug of coffee in my jacket on Sunday. The soft pretzels are also no good anymore, they are always hard and taste like cardboard. I would also be happy to rid the Cell of all Pepsi products.

There's a Steak Pita cart (with Greek Sausage, too) in the Upper Deck now, behind the plate (and I was very excited to see it). That's probably where it went.

This isn't true. You can still get an Italian Beef sandwich in the Bullpen BarMy dad & uncle got Italian Beefs at whatever the big stand is by section 121. I got an Italian Sausage, which I didn't really enjoy - it came covered in marinara sauce, which I wasn't expecting, and don't particularly enjoy on sandwiches.

The best part about my dad getting the beef is that he ordered it with peppers, expecting them to be sweet peppers. Watching his eyes tear up and his face turn red while he said, "you know...these aren't sweet peppers..." was pretty good comedy.

As a fellow slave to the java bean, I concur with you MrRoboto that the coffee at Comiskey is some of the worst around. They serve it in Dunkin Donuts cups but it most certainly is NOT Dunkin Donuts coffee. If it is really DD coffee grounds, then they are brewing it with dirty filters or something because it tastes like Chicago River water that was filtered through a dirty sock. I am not a coffee snob either. I have pretty low standards for coffee (a cup from the Mobil station is just as good as Starbucks to me) but the stuff at our ballpark is pretty undrinkable. The good news is that they opened a Starbucks on 35th st right near the Green Line Bronzeville stop so I can get my caffeine hit on the way back to the train now. :cool:

I agree completely. I honestly can't figure out why they haven't upgraded this part of the concessions. I'm not looking for the best cup of coffee I will ever drink (though I certainly wouldn't complain), but they can at least sell something palatable. Right now it's god-awful.

I agree completely with you on the discription of the taste of this "coffee" at the Cell. I have had bad coffee in my day, but this is truely a unique bad coffee, Im not sure if it can even be classified as coffee. I will just have to continue to smuggle coffee into the ballpark, and if I burn myself in the process, well then the Sox may have a law suit on their hands.:tongue:

Other than Hot Dogs, pretzels, churros, soda and beer, I stopped getting the food at the Cell. There's only so many times that I can get cruddy overpriced food that leaves me with a stomach ache for 2 days.

Either I'll eat before or I pack food and bring it in. Mostly subs, chips and maybe a cookies.

Yep, it was $6.50 for the brisket and chips. Had my first one today. Very nice, (not Smoque quality but good) quality bun and a nice old lady serving it up.

Your Elotes stand has returned, it seems as though its closer to home plate than last year.

The Beef and Corn Beef stand over around Section 109 has a major change, You get a bag of chips rather than than the huge mound you used to get. Still can't figure out why they don't upgrade the bread at that stand.

Had my first brat at the Home Opener, and they're still my favorites.

Gotta love a brat, a brew, and the Sox!

It was $6.50 for the pulled pork sandwich and a bag of chips, I think it was the same for the brisket but am not 100% on this.

Other than Hot Dogs, pretzels, churros, soda and beer, I stopped getting the food at the Cell. There's only so many times that I can get cruddy overpriced food that leaves me with a stomach ache for 2 days.

Either I'll eat before or I pack food and bring it in. Mostly subs, chips and maybe a cookies.

As an alternative to eating at the park, I'll often stop at Maxwell Street Station to pick up a pork chop sandwich - very reasonably priced.

Also sometimes I'll call Connies from home, pick up an individual pizza on the way to the game and bring it into the park. The pizza usually stays warm by the time I get there and even if it cools, cold pizza is okay with me too. Plus I get to use the coupons I got the game before.

this is a baseball game folks, not a food show... all you need is a hot dog and a beer. my kosher hot dogs on monday and friday were amazing by the way... the beer was just as good :gulp:


I agree with you '83 Sox.:gulp: MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM Beer. -Homer Simpson

Every stop I made yesterday was frustrating, food was mediocre, concession stands out of napkins (in the 1st inning), bathrooms out or paper towels(completely) in the 3rd inning....they seem be sliding backwards in terms of quality and service.

Has anyone had the real footlongs they sell in the 300 level? They are I think ten bucks but they're about the size of three koshers long and that thick too. They also have the huge Polish as well. They then have a little bar where you can dress them yourself. They are fantastic.
They also sell a 2 foot long hot dog in the 300 level for $14. For another $2 you can get it covered in chili and cheese. One of the guys in the row in front of my Dad and I on Opening Day got one of those. He came back carrying it in a cardboard tote. This thing was huge and messy. I wish I had taken a picture!

Typical small crowd accomodations. Plus, I wonder how many workers left early to hit Wrigley?

Beltin' Bill's Brats and a churro is all I need when I go to a game :wink:

That's what I figured...but I've attended "small crowd" games at PNC Park, Comerica Park, Miller Park and Jacobs Field...never experienced anything like that. It's not a big issue...but with the great attendance they've had for the last three years...the quality seems to be degrading vs. going the other way.
