For $11 at Orioles home games, this twist on a Maryland classic is worth every penny!
#7 PITTSBURGH CONE AT PNC PARK
The Pittsburgh Cone is a mouthwatering delicacy that perfectly represents the Steel City. Think of a Kielbasa sandwich and swap out the bread for a waffle cone.

You can find The Pittsburgh Cone at Familee BBQ behind Section 132 for a resonable $9.
#6 ESQUITE AT DODGER STADIUM
Esquite is a Mexican dish that has become very popular at Dodger Stadium since it debuted in the postseason of 2018. The dish comes served in a mini-dodgers helmet much like the ice cream sundaes do but instead it features street corn, mayonnaise, cheese & spicy aioli. This traditional Mexican dish is flavourful and is a great homage to the hispanic culture engrained into the LA community. Esquite may not be as out-of-the-box as some of the dishes on this list, it is simple and delicious. It isn't You can get the Esquite for just $9 at each and every Los Angeles Dodgers home game at the Elysian Park Grill concession stands.
#5 TRIPLE THREAT PORK SANDWICH AT PETCO PARK
The San Diego Padres are home to one of the best pulled-pork sandwiches in the league. This monster of a sandwich features pulled pork, bacon, pork loin schnitzel, pepperoncini relish, shack aioli all on a brioche bun. The Triple Threat Pork Sandwich is a local favourite from a downtown restaurant called Carintas Snack Shack in San Diego and has recently been brought to Petco Park in 2019.
#4 WISCONSIN ULTIMATE CHEESE FRY AT MILLER PARK
Wisconsin is known for its cheese and these cheese fries do not disappoint. The Wisconsin Ultimate Cheese Fry consists of craft beer-battered twister fries topped with sargento cheddar cheese sauce, applewood smoked bacon and a fried sargento cheese curds. If you're looking for a slightly lighter snack, you can get a similar version of the dish just without the bacon and cheese curds.
#3 BAO TO THE PORK AT WRIGLEY FIELD
The Bao to the Pork was introduced in 2017 and was created by celebrity chef Jeff Mauro. It features pulled pork, pickled daikon and carrot, cucumbers and jalapeno relish on a bao bun. This sandwich is one of the most talked about menu items across the league. If you ever get the chance to head to the world famous Wrigley Field be sure to also grab this sandwich. Although this dish doesn't match the classic ballpark vibe Wrigley exudes, the Bao to the Pork is too good to pass up on!
#2 BONE-IN SMOKED BEEF SHORT RIBS AT NATIONALS PARK
This looks like a meal that should not be served at a ballpark but it is and we should be thankful for that! The Washington Nationals introduced this dish in 2019 and was almost as big as of success as their World Series title! The ingredients are simple: Meat. You can find this at the Old Hickory concession stand at section 243 for $18 and it's worth every last dollar! Tackle it yourself or share it with a friend, the choice is yours! We just highly suggest grabbing a few napkins and wet naps before you dive into this meat!
#1 FOWL POLE AT GLOBE LIFE FIELD
The Fowl Pole is the most popular dish in the MLB, and for good reason! The two-pound chicken tender is laid over top of a bed of waffle fries, with a choice of two dipping sauces on the side (barbecue, honey mustard and ranch). If you want to get your hands on the Fowl Pole be sure to get to the ballpark early as they make a limited quantity and they sell out rather quickly. Priced at $27.50, this dish can be split between multiple people or if you're feeling hungry and adventurous you can try to finish it yourself!
