Acme Chophouse is my favorite steakhouse in the City and adjacent to the park - I know it's not much of a walk, but I have never had anything but spectacular meals there. They offer both grain- and grass-fed meat, good starters, and although I'm a mashed potatoes gal, their macaroni and cheese is dangerously addictive. Good offering of wine by the glass.
As a die-hard A's fan, I am hugely jealous.
I like District Wine Bar. They're extremely close to the ball park. Nice wine selection and good food, including a mini pizza.
There are a few new places also near the ballpark that I haven't tried, but might be worth checking out. (If you do, you can let us know!) One is Pete's Tavern and another is the BurgerJoint location nearby. The Burger Joint doesn't have a place link yet, but it's supposed to be on King street right across from the ball park, which means it'll be really convenient but maybe crowded by fans. Here's their web site: http://www.burgerjointsf.com/location...

Looking forward to your report on Pete's ... they have house-smoked BBQ ... Smoked Chicken, Spicy Links, Pork Spare Ribs, Brisket.
Sides are Corn Muffins, Baked Beans, Cole Slaw, Potato Salad
Lots of comfort food too like ...
- Open Face Hot Turkey Sandwich with Cheddar Biscuits
- Fish and Chips
- House Smoked Turkey BLT with Cranberry Relish
- Open Face Meatloaf with Mushroom Gravy and Onion Strings
The burger comes with curly fries. Wonder how the buffalo wings are. There are 12 beers on tap.
There's a $10 daily blue plate special ... Thrusday is corned beef and cabbage,.
It looks like a very attractive place from the website.
All this and open late ... and a sports bar ... and there are pool tables.
I've been to Pete's a couple times since I started working nearby. Here's what I've had so far:
- Burger: Niman Ranch. Large. Will do it bloody if you ask, unlike some places. It's not a Nopa burger, but it's also not $14.
- Wings: they came with celery and carrot sticks, and sadly those got eaten first while the meat remained largely untouched all evening. Just not appetizing, and you don't get a lot in one order.
- Half bbq chicken: Good, but on the verge of overcooked. Sauce remained a sort of outside-the-meat affair (the meat did not seem to absorb the flavor or any particular marinade.) Came with a corn meal muffin that was saturated in grease (still ate it). Slaw was refreshingly un-mayonaissey. I split the whole meal with a 6' tall woman and we were both sated. Will check out the "real" bbq (ie, brisket) and report back.
Nachos: not bad for a sports bar. Actual vegetable matter and what seemed like real cheese on top.
Even tho everyone is getting tanked and eating at Momo's, I think this place has a better pre-game atmosphere and about 30,000 screens just in case you miss the start of the game but still want to keep score.
I've hit these spots and they have all been pretty tasty and affordable.
Have a great game ;)
