Ahh, baseball. Is there anything this city is more obsessed with? Fans can catch dozens of games each summer, and fortunately there are more than just peanuts and Cracker Jack to go with that $9 Bud Light. Busch Stadium (Broadway and Poplar Street; 314-345-9000) now has several specialty carts and concession stands, and Gut Check tried them so you don't have to.

Kohn's Kosher Knackwurst
(Kohn's Food Cart)

Kohn's Kosher cart debuted this season, the first kosher stand at Busch since Best's Kosher Hot Dog Stands left (and stopped production) in 2008. You can get the knackwurst, knosh or Kohn's famous pastrami sandwich. The wurst is just as good as the classic ballpark dog, and Kohn's has been a staple in the community since 1963. Busch even hosted its first Jewish Community Night in July -- but you don't have be Jewish to enjoy this all-beef frank.

Classic Nachos
(El Birdos Cantina, main level in section 148)

Nachos are a sports-game staple in general, and it doesn't get better than that (probably) fake, melty cheese. The nachos at El Birdos Cantina are the same as around the stadium, but you can add shredded chicken and jalapenos here. Oh, and pulled pork. There's also an El Birdos Cantina build-your-own nachos station in section 141, but you can't go wrong with the original. Plus, at $6.75, nachos are one of the cheaper items that aren't like, peanuts. Did we mention all the cheese?

I was told by a food vendor employee that the best time to get nachos is after the 4th. Bc they use the old stale chips from the previous night and meat and cheese that has been sitting in a warmer as well. So.wait til everyone else eats it first

I always go for the BBQ pulled pork nachos. They didn't mention those which I think is a shame. They are delicious and huge. Big enough to share. Plus you get to add your own sour cream, salsa, olives, onions and jalapeños!

For my money, you cannot beat a kosher dog (and I am a lifelong Catholic). I won't even eat regular hot dogs at the game anymore. I am that thoroughly ruined. (Then again, SO & I got party suite tickets for Christmas, so I haven't seen anything yet.)

No thanks, I can spend a lot less and get better food before I enter the gates.

its a shame ya'll left out the stir-fry noodle stuff. that place is amazing. and for the amount you get, it's enough to share. the lines take a long time to get through, so get there early…but it's totally worth it!

I love the cheeseburgers and hotdogs from the Tent on the sidewalk east of Stadium West garage.. it's inexpensive and delicious. Better than anything I've had at the stadium and it allows more spending money for b$$r.

The Philly Cheesesteak at the kiosk at the top of the left field bleachers is the BEST food you will find in Busch Stadium.  Hands down.
