Formerly known as Comiskey Park and U.S. Cellular Field, Guaranteed Rate Field is home to the Chicago White Sox. The South Side team doesn't command the rabid following of its neighbors to the north, but the stadium is much more spacious than Wrigley and it's almost always possible to walk up and purchase tickets. Plus, the Sox gave Chicago its most recent World Series Championship in 2005.

The best food in baseball comes from U.S. Cellular Field. You can catch a fantastic fireworks show certain nights, be amongst die hard Sox fans, and watch some good baseball all while eating some really fantastic food that is only offered at the park. There are foot-long Comiskey Chicago hot dogs with all the fixings, Polish sausages with onions and hot peppers, Irish nacho helmets and elotes corn, just to name a few. My favorite item is the tater tachos, aka tater tot nachos, covered in cheese and jalapenos. For dessert, there is a huge ice cream sundae helmet that may just be bigger than your head that you should definitely share with a couple friends. Like many ballparks, expect lines at popular food stalls but I guarantee it is worth it.
The Cell has so many great food options and the stadium is massive. This is definitely the place you need to go if you want to have the full baseball experience—fireworks and all!
The Cell never seems to get as much love as Wrigley on the north side, but there's no reason it shouldn't—with a great beer list and fireworks at the end of every game, what's not to love?
