Where to Eat Before, During, and After A Chicago Cubs Game
Let’s play ball!
Cubs Opening Day is on Thursday, March 30th this year, for a 1:20 pm game! Wrigleyville is going to be a sea of blue, red, and W flags. Don’t go to the game on an empty stomach, check out where you can go on opening day for a quick bite, or sit down lunch!
Home of Chicago’s steamwhiches, CBA is loved by all. You can order your food online, and have it ready for pick up as soon as you exit the stop! They have a HUGE menu, with options for meat lovers, vegans, and gluten freebies all alike. Grab your bagel to go, and enjoy it while walking the short distance to the ballpark, or eat inside! They have plenty of seats for you and your game day crew.
Picture this: A loaded grilled cheese, side of tots, and an ice cold beer right before you enter the historic Wrigley Field gates. Cheesie’s is sure to keep you full and satisfied throughout the entire duration of the game!
Whether you have a big appetite or small appetite, Big and Little’s is a casual counter-serve whipping up delicious seafood and meat tacos! This is a great option for those who are looking for a quick grab-and-go. Located on Belmont, you can enjoy your fresh tacos on the walk over to the ballpark.
Kirkwood is opening much earlier than usual in the spirit of Opening Day, at noon! Enjoy classic gameday fares, like chicken tenders, baked pretzels, burgers, and more! Kirkwood is right on Sheffield, not too far from the Belmont stop.
Take Sheffield down to Wrigley Field, and you’ll pass the Venezuelan café and restaurant Bolivar and Lincoln. They have options for those who are gluten-free, meat-free, or eat everything! This lowkey spot is the perfect place to reset before all the baseball excitement.
While walking to Wrigley Field, you’ll pass by Sheffield’s! If the weather calls for it, enjoy a beer in the outdoor beer garden. Three Floyds is the beer of the month, with all featured drafts being just $6!
Houndstooth has a massive space perfect for you and your entire crew! Their game day specials include $20 Domestic Bottle Buckets, $5 Bushmill Shots, and $3 Western Son Shots. They’ll also be airing the game with sound!
Cheba Hut is perfect for those who have the munchies. Opening nice and early at 10 am, Cheba offers larger-than-life sandwiches that are fitting for a day full of baseball. Treat yourself to a homemade rice Krispy treat while you’re there!
The Graystone Tavern has an enclosed patio with TVs, a full-service bar, and a great kitchen! Located just a block away from the field, come warm up with your friends over at Graystone. Specials include: $6 Proper 12 Apple Shots, $8 Miller Lite 22-ounce steins, and a Ballpark Stadium Menu with game-day fare like $6 Ball Park Nachos, $6 Popcorn (butter, cheddar jalapeno, or Cajun) and $10 Warm Pretzels!
Shake Shack has great burgers, fries, and of course, shakes! They also have a huge dining room, so stop in for a juicy burger and walk the very short distance to the field afterward. They also have a great veggie burger on the menu!
