Food Fight: Wrigley Field

Our trip inspired a Wrigley-themed Food Fight, where we each tried to find the best bite in the park.

  • Since the renovation, the concessions here have improved dramatically beyond the days of hot dogs and helmet nachos.

🌭 Justin's pick: I'm a purist at heart. Sure, I could go up to Lillie's Q or try Hot Doug's in the bleachers, but I will always come back to the bratwurst ($12.49).

  • This footlong version is much bigger, which in baseball is always better.
  • The grilled onions are a must.
  • The bun isn't the best, but it serves its purpose.
  • I would much rather have had brown mustard, but since it wasn't anywhere to be found, I had to go with the yellow.

🥪 Monica's pick: I love Maxwell Street-style noshes, so I chose the park's pork chop sandwich ($10.49).

  • What a mistake — and not just because it checks in at double the Jim's Original price.
  • The bun was hard, the meat was dry, and they took out the traditional bone. I repeat, NO BONE.
  • When it came to ordering, I clearly choked.

The bottom line: We loved the tater twists, a shareable string of crispy and soft potato chips on a stick ($8.49).
