Target Field Is a Top 5 Major League Baseball Stadium, but Why?
The 5-year-old Target Field is home of the Minnesota Twins. Die-hard Twins fans fill the stadium year after year in hopes of a run at the World Series. Even though Minnesotans love their team and their new stadium, there's one other thing that makes Target Field a "Top 5 Major League Stadium" - the food!
Thrillist.com ranked every major league baseball stadium by its food and drink and out of thirty stadiums, Target Field came in at #5.
At Target Field, you won't find just ordinary hot dogs, peanuts and beer, you'll find local specialty, Kramarczuk's sausages and Murray's steak sandwiches, inspired by the iconic Minnesota steakhouse.
Here's what Thrillist said about the food at Target Field:
With sausages, an Andrew Zimmern presence, and an entire shop dedicated to state fair food, the Twins’ stadium basically plays into all stereotypes of its regional cuisine. And that’s a great thing. AZ’s Canteen has dishes like the smoked meat sandwich with maple syrup hot sauce. Kramarczuk’s, a James Beard Classic winner, makes its brats and sausages daily in Minneapolis. Butcher & Boar, a downtown restaurant that got a James Beard nom in 2013, dishes out bbq tips. And to truly remind you that you’re not a professional athlete, there’s the straightforward State Fair Classic: fried apple pies, fried pork chop on a stick, and fried pickles. Also the Midwest draft options of Grain Belt, Summit, Goose Island, and Surly don’t hurt things.
This summer, load up the family and take a trip to the Cities. Do a little sight-seeing and check out a Twins game. Save your appetite for Target Field and enjoy a Jucy Lucy at The Town Ball Tavern located on the upper concourse by the left field corner, Chicken Chorizo Loaded Potato Skins at Hrbek's on the main concourse behind home plate or enjoy some adult beverages at Two Gingers Pubs.
