And, as an added bonus, how much does it cost?

I went to a Gateway Grizzlies game tonight and was BLOWN AWAY by the Pulled Chicken Nachos. Shredded Chicken smothered in hot wing sauce, served over nachos. Only $6.50 at the park. GREAT deal!

Couldn't tell you how much it costs (it varies from place to place) but I'm a traditionalist: a cold beer and a hot dog works for me. If it's later in the game and I'm still thirsty, I'll substitute a diet Pepsi or Coke for the beer.

Pretzels. Can't go wrong with thick, classic pretzels. Cost can vary.

Always have to have a hot dog (Nathan's) at Shea/ Citifield. It usually goes for $5.50, though strangely if you look around the stadium, you can find a larger jumbo dog for the same price or the same regular dog at a buck more.

Actually, as much as it pains me to say this, the single best ballpark food I ever ate was at Philly last year. I had the Bulldog sandwich (a big, soft roll with kelibasa sausage and BBQ sauce smothered on top) at Greg Luzinski's Bull BBQ place right behind right field, I think. Damn, did that sandwich taste good.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that the Bulldog went for $8. Here at Citifield, it would probably go for at least $10-12, so not only did it taste good, it was a great bargin IMO as well.

Hot Roasted Peanuts. I don't even know if you can get them anywhere anymore.

Garlic Fries are a close second.

The Braves' previous stadium (Fulton County?) had the best pizza. I inhaled that at every game.

Not a ballpark, but there's a lady at the Union Fair in Union, Maine that sells the hot roasted peanuts. Yummy.

Are you talking about Bavarian nuts? They're glazed sugar-coated nuts (pecans,cashews,& almonds) that taste really good. I have them every time I go to the Coliseum for an Islander game. I just didn't consider them ballpark food because I never seen them sold in one. They should though, it would sell like gangbusters.

I love getting ice cream at the ballpark.
I used to get Hood Super Sport Bars at Fenway. (like a Klondike bar)
The AA Portland Sea Dogs have Sea Dog Biscuits. Two soft chocolate chip cookies with ice cream in the middle.
There was also a Sea Dog sandwich that was a hot dog bun with a fried clam strip in the middle. Great with tartar sauce.

Advice----always move your beer out of the way when cracking open and dropping peanut shells. Not a good combination.

Sigh. It just wouldn't be the same. They have to come in a foil baggie thrown from at least 4 rows away. They taste the best if they're thrown from the next section over and you catch them perfectly-- eliciting mad props from the vendor and fellow spectators. Then you sit there grinning with your precious warm bundle while the vendor makes his way over to collect your money. Once the money has been exchanged you unroll the tightly crimped bag releasing the amazing aroma inside.

But at the fair, they come in a nice little brown paper bag. You can smell them BEFORE you open the bag, Lise!

Having made my first foray to Citi Field last night (for McCartney, not a game, but still), I have this to say about ballpark food: who can afford it? 5 bucks for a hot dog? 6.75 for a big bag of kettle corn? No thanks.

So here's MY version of ballpark food, recommended to anyone who's going to a Met game: instead of parking at Shea, go to downtown Flushing. (You can park at a meter if you arrive after 5PM weekdays, or anytime Sunday.) Subway fare and anything you need to put into the meter will be a substantial savings over parking at the stadium. Then, get dinner in downtown Flushing, which is on a par with Chinatown for authentic Asian food. I went to Curry Leaves Malaysian on 40th, a block from the subway station; the char kway teow (like chow fun, but spicy and with cockles) wasn't quite as good as what I get in Singapore, but it's a reasonable facsimile while I'm away.

Give me the RJ's Slugger at Randy JOnes BBQ in PETCO Park, a 1/2 pound beast of a hot dog BBQ'd to perfection. Absolutely the best dog I've ever had.

I once ordered a hot dog at an AFL game. It was like a normal sized frank, but it came on some sort of french loaf that was about four times the size of the dog. One of the silliest things I've ever eaten.

The actor's commentary track is hilarious. The two guys mercilessly mock each other (and Virginia Madsen's chest) the entire time. It might change your perception of the film.
