For those of us who visit the ballpark for the food as much as the game, U.S. Cellular Field is sweetening the deal. Starting on Opening Day, White Sox fans can expect an expanded menu of offerings at the stadium…and, coincidentally, some tighter pants.

“Each year, we listen to our fans and strive to improve our services based on their feedback,” said Brooks Boyer, White Sox senior vice president of sales and marketing. “We consistently work to offer White Sox fans a variety of fresh and new retail and concession items at U.S. Cellular Field, and this year is no different.”

The new items will be served on the ballpark’s 100-level and 500-level, and they include a downright smorgasbord of flavors.

Let’s start with the Comiskey Burger--the perfect solution for those struggling with the ‘Chicago Dog or burger?’ dilemma during their dash to concessions.  This fusion burger is described as “a double or triple cheeseburger topped with ‘Chitown Pico’, a relish salsa creation made with all the Chicago Dog ingredients (sport peppers, green relish, diced tomato and onions) topped with celery salt.” It will be sold at the two Burger Barn locations in sections 113 and 529.

If you’re hoping to spice up what is likely a chilly Chicago afternoon, look no further than the Walking Taco. This deceptively simple dish combines nacho cheese, a scoop of chili and a fork, all inside a bag of Fritos. You can find it in the big leagues in sections 110, 164 and 544.

Perhaps sweet and sassy is more your style. If so, nab yourself a Bull’s BBQ, which was both named and created by fan-favorite Greg Luzinski. Similar to Luzinski’s 1983 White Sox squad, this pulled pork sandwich (sold in sections 151 and 531), won’t disappoint. Also falling into the meat-focused sandwich category is the Meatball Sandwich, which is self-explanatory and will be sold in sections 121 and 522.

For the discerning fans in the Club Level, Diamond Suite or Stadium Club, the offerings are significantly more high-brow. Their new options are: the Winning Ugly Grand Slam--Italian beef, Italian sausage, a pork chop and bacon, topped with giardiniera, sautéed onions and peppers on muffalatta; Pepper-Glazed Goat Cheese Spread--served with pita chips and toasted baguette slices; the South Side Double Steakburger—two 1/3 lb. steakburgers topped with American cheese, lettuce tomato and a “secret sauce” on brioche; the Rip and Dip—four-cheese garlic bread served with marinara and ranch dipping sauces; and, lastly, a Tuna, Chicken and Egg Salad Sandwich Trio with caraway rye, pumpernickel and assorted rolls.

If you’re looking to imbibe some spirits during the ballgame, there’s a vast list of new brews including: Henry Weinhards, Batch19, Third Shift, Blue Moon Agave Blonde Ale, Third Shift, Redd’s Apple Ale, Ebel’s Weiss from Two Brothers Brewery and Leinenkugel's Canoe Paddler.  

Not into beer? Try the newly-added Eleven City Diner Bloody Mary. Not 21, or just taking it easy for the day? Sections 130 and 529 will now be selling milk and apple juice.

Torn between your new options? Don’t worry. The menu is as long as the White Sox’s season for a reason: you can try them all.
