It's fine to eat peanuts, Cracker Jack and beer during a Chicago Cubs baseball game at Wrigley Field, but before or after the game, you can do a lot better than that. The neighborhood surrounding the ballpark, known as "Wrigleyville," is full of excellent restaurants.
Gourmet burgers are the stars of the lineup at Rockit Burger Bar, across the street from Wrigley Field, or DMK Burger Bar, which is about a mile away. There are plenty of ethnic eats, too, from Mexican food to African cuisine. Vegetarians and vegans will love Uncommon Ground, which is known for using locally grown and organic ingredients.
Wrigley Field is right off the Addison Red Line stop so it’s easy to visit (and much less crowded) even when a game isn’t happening. In fact, that's a better time to go if you're looking for a meal that's not rushed. The neighborhood skews younger, which will explain why it’s packed with bars along Clark Street, but it’s also a fun place to grab a bite to eat.
