For most of Major League Baseball's illustrious 144-year history, hot dogs, peanuts, and Cracker Jacks were the only culinary options at the ballpark. But these days, with most big league stadiums now offering a dizzying array of dining options, choosing what to eat at the old ball game can make your fantasy draft seem simple by comparison. (And we're not even talking about those exclusive "stadium clubs," whose lavish menus and wallet-busting prices would shame a high-end Vegas steakhouse.) Unsure what to order next time you're at the game? Let us help with our team-by-team, stadium-by-stadium list of 30 can't-miss MLB munchies, from tamales in Arizona to half-smokes in D.C..
Cuban Sandwich (Tropicana Field, St. Petersburg)
Domed, air-conditioned, and carpeted with artificial turf, Tropicana Field is pretty much devoid of vibe. Happily, the same cannot be said for the food, which is heavy on local flavor – most notably the Rays Cuban Sandwich, a pressed sandwich on toasted Cuban bread filled with ham, pork, Genoa salami, Swiss cheese, pickles, and mustard, which is as plentiful at "The Trop" as hot dogs are at other ballparks.
