Chicago White Sox Unveil New Concession Menu Items for 2023 Season

Dec 11, 2023

If you plan on visiting Guaranteed Rate Field this season, come hungry.

The Chicago White Sox held their annual Food Day preview to the media as they began drumming up interest for Opening Day and the 2023 season. Introducing tasty new food menus has been a strength for the White Sox, who often rank as one of the top ballparks in concession variety and quality. Is that enough to convince wavering fans to pay money and attend a game? Probably not, but those that do will be impressed by this season's offerings.

For the items I could sample, I’ll provide my quick review. All food takes are subjective and eye of the beholder (more like the stomach of the beholder). My review scale:

Delaware North is the concession operator for Guaranteed Rate Field and will add the following items below to stands in the 100 and 500-level seating. There will also be two new bars in the 500-level: Blue Moon Balcony and Miller High Life Sky Lounge.

Located in the Blue Moon Balcony, the Belgian Banger is a spicy polish sausage on a pretzel bun topped with sweet orange caramelized onions and red cabbage slaw. The idea was to make a polish sausage paring with a Blue Moon beer.

Review: Double The polish sausage is quite good but falls a bit short in overall taste compared to the classic Maxwell Street style.

A steak sandwich stand will be located near Sections 125 and 534 in 2023 featuring two options.

First, is your classic cheesesteak with the melted cheddar cheese, grilled onions and peppers on a hoagie roll.

Review: TripleIt's hard to screw up a cheesesteak sandwich, but the White Sox have a good combination of flavors with this offering. It could make a better eating option than Italian Beef while sitting down.

Located in Sections 140 and 544, the new Elote Corndog is your typical corndog paired with an elotes dip. Delaware North noticed that elotes are one of the White Sox more popular concession items and wanted to try a new twist.

Review: Elote Dip – Double; Corndog – SingleI enjoyed the elote dip as it reminded me of what Antique Taco on 35th and Morgan offers. While the dip is solid, I wouldn't say I liked the corndog. I’d rather have a small bag of fried tortilla chips than a non-crunchy corndog.

While Delaware North takes care of general concessions, Levy Restaurants handles food for White Sox suites, 300-level, Scout Seats, and Stadium Club. Consider this the fancy concessions menu.

At first glance, it's just a basket of potato wedges, but it's a shocking amount of effort by Levy Restaurants in making them. In total the process takes three days to bake and slice at low heat to make the wedges extra crispy. A loaded baked potato dip that's heavy on bacon flavoring was paired with the wedges.

Review: Home RunI’m very confident in my ability to eat a helmet's sized serving of Colossal Potato Wedges with that bacon dip. The crunch did not disappoint. It's everything you ever wanted in a potato wedge. (Location: Diamond Suites and 300-level)

Starting with the big news, Leinenkugel's will continue as being the Official Craft Brewery of the Chicago White Sox. What's often known as the "Craft Kave", is technically called Leinenkugel's Craft Lodge, and they are bringing back mixing different beer flavors.

Hey @chorizy …@Leinenkugels MIXOLOGY IS BACK!

While Leinenkugel signage will be everywhere, the many coolers stacked with craft beers from local breweries will remain. In total, there will be 75 different craft beers from 50 breweries.

New breweries to be featured:

In addition to those breweries, the White Sox are partnering with Pilot Project Brewing, an incubator located in Logan Square to provide limited-time releases.
