Best Ballpark Food

The only thing that rivals Kevin O’Connell and Josh Pahigian’s love of baseball is their love of food. While researching their book The "Ultimate Baseball Road-Trip," they cheered teams and chowed down at all 30 of America’s major-league baseball stadiums. Their top five concession-stand picks are worth the long lines:

from Reader's Digest

The Shackburger
Citi Field, New York Mets

“A real burger-juicy beef with cheese, lettuce, a thick slice of tomato, and tangy sauce on a soft bun. The only problem is, it’s so popular you might have to wait two innings to get one.”

Barbecue Baker
Minute Maid Park, Houston Astros

“A baked potato with cheese, pulled pork, barbecue sauce, onions, and jalapeño peppers-an ingenious combination that’s so big, you have to use both hands.”

Ben's Original Chili Half-Smoke “All the Way”
Nationals Park, Washington Nationals

Shrimp tacos
PETCO Park, San Diego Padres

Miller’s Dog
McAfee Coliseum, Oakland A’s
