You might expect that cities like New York, San Francisco and Chicago would have some of the best restaurants in the world. But ballpark food? As it turns out, the signature dishes in these ballparks are the true surprises.
Fries are always classic ballpark food and AT&T Park home to the San Francisco Giants has a special twist. Neighboring city Gilroy, the Garlic Capital of America, inspired the popular garlic fries that sell 8,000 baskets a year.
Citi Field in New York has no shortage of gourmet options—Shake Shack, Blue Smoke, Two Boots—but it also has the classic Nathan’s Famous Hot Dogs, selling 400,000 pounds of dogs a month.
