Best and Most Unique Ballpark Food in America
majors and minors. hot dogs to ethnic. items you wouldnt normally think of as ballpark food
yea, see, I'm a baseball fan from waaaay back and it is about tradition. I want peanuts, hot dog, etc. so I'm not qualified to answer this question.
The Gateway Grizzlies baseball team of Sauget, Illinois have served the Luther Burger at their ballpark. Their version consists of a deep-fried Krispy Kreme doughnut around a black Angus all-beef patty, melted cheese, and two strips of bacon. Dubbed a cardiologist's worst nightmare, this burger is 1,000 calories (4,200 kJ). Aside from bringing in revenue from sales, it has drawn more fans to come out to the ballpark: apparently, attendance at games has increased and the burger is one of the most popular aspects of the park. The burger has met with criticism from burger purists and from people who are turned off by the thought of the taste and the health implications.
If you visit Nationals Park you can purchase a $59 StrasBurger. The StrasBurger is a monstrous 8 pound all beef burger (combination of ground brisket, chuck and short ribs). The burger is served on a large burger bun with secret sauce, American cheese, shredded lettuce, sliced tomatoes, sliced red onions, pickle chips and served with a cone basket of fresh cut fries and a pitcher of your choice of soft drink.
It serves 8.
This is kind of tame by comparison to the other items mentioned. But, I have to give props to the Milwaukee Brewers for their baked potato topped with brisket and sour cream. It is really, really tasty and a generous portion for the money. (But, because it's work intensive, the waiting line can move pretty slow.) Somewhere in the park they also do a brisket and mashed potato parfait, but I haven't found it yet.
