5 Best Foods to Eat at Busch Stadium

The St. Louis Dog
(The Food Network Hot Dog Bar, main level in section 144)

We haven't been big fans of the St. Louis Dog, but we decided to give it another go. The quarter-pound frank is covered in shredded Provel, Red-Hot Riplets and barbecue sauce and nestled in a huge bun in a bed of Miss Vickie's Salt & Vinegar chips. You might need a fork, and you'll definitely need napkins. It took a few bites for us to get to the actual hot dog, which was delicious. And let's be honest, we'll eat anything topped with Provel. The St. Louis Dog isn't for everyone, but perhaps you should try it just once, Man Vs. Food-style.

BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich
(Broadway BBQ, main level in section 509; Triple Play, main level in section 152; loge level in section 270; Riverview Corner, terrace level in section 432)

If the Food Network really wanted to create a St. Louis dog, they should have started with pulled pork. Yes, it's a staple around town, but there's no reason you can't have barbecue at the ballpark. Besides, it's available all around the stadium.

Turkey Club Sandwich
(The Carvery, behind Gate 2)

A turkey club might sound like an uninspired choice for our favorite eat at Busch, but hear us out. The name of the stand is quite literal -- they carve the turkey right there in front of you. And boy is it fresh, settled on a bun from Fazio's on The Hill. We topped ours with cheese, bacon, tomato and lettuce with a side of The Carvery's house-fried barbecue chips and coleslaw. If you're going to spend $11 on something at a game (and you will) make it the turkey club.

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.
