Within the Stadium

Over the past few years, the concessions menu has grown to include various options to satisfy every palate. There are areas to buy food on several levels inside the stadium, and some of the menu items draw inspiration from local cuisine. For example, a member of the 1983 White Sox team created a Bull’s BBQ sandwich, with tender pulled pork and special sauce. If you are looking for Chicago favorites, check out the Comiskey Burger, which incorporates the traditional Chicago Dog. The stadium also sells beers and other drinks to complement your meal.
Levy’s Restaurant is on the Club Level. Here you can sample the Winning Ugly Grand Slam, a patty made from Italian beef and sausage, pork chops, and bacon, served on thick bread and topped with peppers and onions. They also have a popular dip made from savory goat cheese, served with fresh pita chips and toasted baguette.
For a true Chicago experience, make sure to try the deli plate piled high with tuna, chicken, and egg salad, along with pumpernickel and rye rolls and pickle spears. Complete your meal with a spicy Bloody Mary, which is a favorite among locals.
Traditional Ballpark Food
If you’d rather stick with foods you know and love, the stadium also serves up tasty burgers, hot dogs, chicken tenders, fish and chips, funnel cakes, ice cream, cookies, and more. For those looking for a lighter meal, some of the stands also offer veggie burgers and dogs, gluten-free meals and desserts, and fruits and vegetables at some of the grab-and-go stands. If you have hungry children at the game, you can find kid’s meals around the stadium that will satisfy any appetite.
Bacardi at The Park
Across the street from the ballpark is Bacardi at The Park, which boasts an outdoor beer garden that is a fun place to relax before or after the game. Because of its close proximity, it attracts a lot of White Sox fans, so you can analyze every aspect of the game with fellow fans. Their menu includes typical bar fare like nachos piled high with meat and cheese, hand-cut fries, tender and juicy ribs, sandwiches and pizza, and freshly grilled burgers and hot dogs. They also have a full bar so you can choose a custom drink to cool off on a hot summer day.
Within the stadium, you can also find tasty Mexican choices such as quesadillas, nachos, margaritas, tacos, and fajitas. One venue recently added Walking Tacos to the menu, which is meat and cheese scooped right into a bag of chips for easier eating while on the go.
As you enjoy an afternoon or evening watching America’s favorite pastime, make sure to visit the nearby restaurants and concessions stands to enjoy all the options that are available in U.S. Cellular Field.
