Worth eating at a Bulls game?

JSK Jul 2, 2011 02:03 PM

I'm missing some of the old food stands at Bulls games; last night tried a Carolina Q-dog from the Pit that was pitiful--the barbecue and hot dog were as cold as the slaw, which was also tasteless ('cue was OK but nothing amazing). Before I waste any more money--any suggestions of what's worth eating there?

    This is sad to hear. I lived in Durham in the 80's and remember outstanding food. Burrito's etc.

      Sadly, your best bet will be ChickFilA, and they are closed on Sunday.

      If you can find Carolina Packers Bright Leaf Hot Dogs, they might be a good bet as well.

        What are you all talking about? Ate outside on the patio at Tobacco Road Sports Bar overlooking the ballpark and had some really good choices - pulled lamb sandwich was awesome, and they even sprayed intermittently to keep the heat level down.

          Glad to know the food is better there--but it doesn't work for a game with kids who want to be down by the field, ready to catch a ball, and that's always my situation. Carolina Brewery has a stand, which wouldn't be bad--but it advertises Johnsonville brats and sausage--which I could just buy at BJs, so it doesn't seem too exciting--but may be a best bet.

            My comment was based on food vendors located inside the ballpark, not TRSB.

            The food at TRSB is good for a sport bar and is better than what can be purchased inside the stadium, no doubt. They've had the spray misters all along and use them all the time when it's hot.

            You could go a little early and eat at the Mellow Mushroom right across the street before the game, then maybe get Rita's ice for a treat during.

              Yeah, the choices in the ballpark are pretty sad. We usually go to Tyler's before the game.
