Only in Hollywood can you find one of the most famous hot dogs in the history of baseball, the legendary Dodger Dog. A steal for $5 at L.A.'s Dodger Stadium, 2 million of these 10-inch dogs were sold in 2011, making the Dodger Dog the top-selling dog in Major League Baseball. Devoted Los Angeles Dodgers fans and visitors love it grilled or steamed with traditional toppings like mustard, relish, ketchup or chopped onions. Forget celebrity-spotting; the well-known Dodger Dog makes the A-list as one of Hollywood's food staples.

Fort Myers is home to the brand spanking new Jetblue Park aka Fenway South, which opened just in time for 2012 spring training. Fans especially love to eat their favorite ballpark food in the seats within the Green Monster, which replicates Boston's own. To further please the Red Sox Nation, Jetblue Park concession stands offer fans "A Taste of Fenway" . . . Kayem Fenway Franks and New England Lobster Rolls. Local flavor is not forgotten, though. Fans chow down on snacks from SWFL favorites Pinchers Crab Shack, Rib City, Norman Love Confections and Dutchkinz. All four are located in the tents on Fenway South Drive.

A trip to Yankee Stadium in the Bronx not only has great baseball but also plenty of tasty options to choose from between innings. Yankee fans queue up for such eclectic concessions as hand-carved deli sandwiches, sushi, sweet and spicy Italian sausages, pizza, and New York’s best ballpark hot dog, Nathan’s Famous. Over at Citi Field in Queens, Mets fans can enjoy many of the same concessions, but only here is where you’ll find the juicy burgers and piping hot fries at Shake Shack, New York City’s favorite gourmet burger.

Hamburgers, fries, super cheesy nachos, and the place is packed with peanuts, of course!
