Last weekend I experienced one of the best corn dogs I’ve ever had at Hi Tops, a sports bar in San Francisco’s Castro neighborhood. Flavorful and perfectly fried, a delicious homemade batter made all the difference.
While I wasn’t actually at the ballpark, corn dogs have become my new favorite snack at a baseball game and it got me thinking…what is the best American ballpark food? Are there things that aren’t around anymore or used to be more popular? Cracker Jacks spring to mind…don’t see those much anymore! Or those red and white striped bags of popcorn.
To bid farewell to baseball season, I thought it would be fun to compile a list from your submissions of what you think the best American ballpark food is. Send me your favorites WanderFoodies! So many things can contribute to what makes a great ballpark food. Here are a few ideas to keep in mind:
- Ease of eating – always important at the ballpark. Nothing worse than spilling all over your team colors!
- Quintessential or kitschy - at Wrigley Field in Chicago, they serve nachos in an upside down batting helmet, and a trip to AT&T in San Francisco is not complete without their famous garlic fries.
- Pure nostalgia – cotton candy anyone?
What ballpark foods would you add to the list?
