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..

The culinary equivalent of post-"Layla" Clapton, the Dodger Dog may be the single most overrated food item at any MLB ballpark. Sadly, most of the eats at Dodger Stadium are even worse. For a more palatable option, hit the Extreme Loaded Dogs stand on the Loge level, where the Tailgate Dog mercifully buries a grilled Dodger Dog beneath a mountain of baked beans, potato salad, shredded cheese, and BBQ sauce.
