What Ballpark Food to Eat at Wrigley Field on Opening Day – NBC Chicago

MLB 2022 Opening Day is here, and so is the Chicago Cubs’ home opener.

If you’re heading to Wrigley Field on Thursday for the 1:20 p.m. game against the Milwaukee Brewers, be sure to bring a raincoat (showers are expected), your credit or debit card (the stadium is cashless) — and your appetite.

Here’s a look at some of the new foods at the Friendly Confines ballpark this year.

New foods and beverages for Cubs fans at Wrigley Field:

  • The Twisted Tater: Why eat old fries when you could eat a crispy spiralized potato skewer with a dill pickle dip on the side?
  • Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich: The name says it all: breaded chicken breast dipped in Nashville tangy sauce with coleslaw and bread-and-butter pickles
  • Smoked Brisket Sandwich: Smoked slow and slow, this Lillie Q’s beef brisket sandwich on a hoagie roll is drenched in barbecue au jus and topped with giardiniera
  • Maxwell Street Style Pork Chop Sandwich: Giving hot dogs everywhere a run for the money: A seasoned pork cutlet with mustard and caramelized onions
  • Rotary valves: Section 132’s craft beer and cocktail bar will keep the taps turning with seasonal selections from Goose Island, Maplewood, Spiteful, Moody Tongue, BuckleDown, Revolution and Haymarket.

Of course, local favorites like Beef Viennese, Hot Doug’s Home Run Inn Pizza and Garrett’s Popcorn will still be available.

Play ball! And don’t forget to take towels.
