Garrett’s Popcorn (Wrigley Field)

Move over peanuts and cracker jacks, it’s popcorn’s time to shine. Garrett’s Popcorn, one of Chicago’s most famous popcorn makers, has made its way into Wrigley Field. Their popcorn is the perfect baseball stadium food if you’re looking for something light to snack on. You can’t go wrong munching on a bag of their cheese corn and caramel crisp mix which is sure to satisfy your sweet and savory cravings.

Legacy Burger  (United Center)

If you’re craving a burger during your next visit to the United Center, then you’ll have to try Legacy Burger. Not only do they have some of the best burgers in the stadium, but they also have a variety of vegetarian food options to satisfy different diets. And don’t even get us started on their boozy, “Not for Kids” shakes. A strawberry and Smirnoff vanilla shake? Sign us up!

Old Fashioned Donuts (Soldier Field)

When the Bears fail to give you a rush at the game, look to Old Fashioned Donuts to get your blood flowing again. Not only will their donuts satisfy your sweet tooth, but the shop also offers coffee if you need some caffeine to get you through the day. And with the way this Bears team plays, you might just need it. Hopefully, that won’t be the case once more fans are allowed back to Soldier Field.


Lillie Q’s (United Center)

Next time you’re at the stadium for a Chicago Bulls or Blackhawks game, make sure you check out Lillie’s Q. This restaurant is a barbecue lover’s dream with a menu featuring items like a slow-smoked brisket sandwich and bbq pulled pork nachos. No need to save room for dessert at Lilie’s Q since you’ll definitely want to fill up and try all their different sauce options.

The Comiskey Dog (Guaranteed Rate Field)

It’s no secret that Chicago does hotdogs better than anyone else. If you’re looking for the best ball park food, the Comiskey Dog takes the crown. Sold at Guaranteed Rate Field, home of the White Sox, the Comiskey Dog is the textbook Chicago-style hotdog. If you’re really up for it, they do offer the option to order it in a footlong size. However, there’s a good chance the hotdog will break at some point if you take that route. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
