There’s no I in team, but there are two in delicious.

Stadium food has come a long way since the days of hot dogs and peanuts. Ballparks and sports centers now offer some truly wonderful menus. Here are the best things to eat while you’re waiting for something interesting to happen on the field.

Shackburger, Shake Shack at CitiField, New York

Let’s not fight about The Mets vs. The Yankees. Let’s just all agree that the Mets are better in every way possible, thanks in large part to this fantastic burger.

Rocky Mountain Oysters, Coor’s Field, Denver

Bull testilces never tasted so good! (We think.) If a stadium offers up something as unique as Rocky Mountain Oysters, you have to at least try them. For those without a spirit of adventure, stick with the rocky hot dogs and burgers, and continue living your unfulfilled life.

The Schmitter, Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia

More than just a Philly Cheesesteak, this handful of goodness combines grilled steak, salami, onions and a special sauce. If interested, get there early because the line grows faster than your stomach will.

The Luther, Gateway Grizzlies Stadium, Sauget, IL

By now most folks have heard of this donut burger, but it’s still a concept that makes your brain twist. While not for anyone with a heart condition or something to live for, this caloric king is enough to make you care about sports.
