What to eat and where to find it at Phoenix's favorite baseball stadium.
With the crack of a bat and the crunch of a roasted peanut, baseball season has returned and in Phoenix that means thousands of fans packing into Chase Field in Downtown Phoenix, home of the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Besides being a great stadium to catch a game, Chase has plenty to offer Valley's baseball fans. It was the first major league stadium to include both a pool and hot tub and has nearly a quarter-mile of concession stand area. That's quite a lot of ground to cover, but if you know where you're going you can make a successful food run in less time than it takes for the crowd to take its seventh inning stretch.

Craft Beer at Game Seven Grill

Game Seven Grill

This 20,000 square-foot restaurant is new to Chase this year and offers a full menu that includes "the hottest wings in baseball." The restaurant opens three hours before game time and the kitchen closes about an hour after the game begins. It gets pretty packed so if you want to get a table, call ahead and make a reservation or be prepared to wait.

However, the best bang for your buck can be found at either the outdoor beer garden or inside at the bar. Neither requires reservations and both have plenty of standing room available even right before the game. And unlike at all of the other places inside the stadium, Game Seven Grill offers a fairly large selection of premium and craft beers both on tap and in the bottle. If you're with an out-of-towner, guide them to the Camelback IPA, brewed locally by Phoenix Ale Brewery. It's available on tap and for just $6 will beat anything you're going to find inside.

Red Corn Chicken Taquitos at Macayos

Red corn taquitos

The limited menus at the three Macayo's locations within the walls of Chase offer the kind of deep-fried finger-foods that taste best when your feet are sticking to a dirty stadium floor.

We went for the red corn chicken taquitos, a good buy at $8 for six. They'll come out extra-crispy and buried in a layer of sour cream, cheese and sprinkled with a diced tomato mixture similar to pico de gallo. The combination of super crunchy corn tortilla, shredded chicken, sour cream and cheese pairs perfectly with a tall glass of cheap beer.

Does anybody really have money to burn by patronizing concessions at the BOB? They were way too expensive in 1998. How in the world could anything worth putting in one's mouth be any more affordable now? The ONLY thing worth eating at a Dbacks game is what you bring with you to the game.

@arizonaeagletarian It's entertainment dining....not that much different than the movies or Disneyland. I don't think anyone is pretending it's the best, most affordable food in the universe.

That said, they released a value menu this year with some economical options, including a beer option. And on the third level they have a kids area where hot dogs and other ballgame staples are $1.50....and yes, adults may purchase them.

These are all great options, but my standby for years at BOB/Chase surprisingly isn't on here...the Hungry Hill Sangwich stand (I think there's 2 or 3 on the different levels). I have no idea what "sangwich" means but they have delicious grilled brats with fresh sauerkraut, italian sausage and grilled peppers, and a fantastic meatball sub. Definitely a quality foundation for a few $12 beers.

Great report....I hit up probably five games a year and didn't know about a few of these. That tailgate dog is up next, right up my alley.
