6 must-try foods at Target Field
Baseball fans from all around the country have come to Minneapolis as Major League Baseball entertains the nation with its biggest game. And the one thing everyone has in common (besides baseball, of course) is that they’re all hungry.
We’re proud of our hometown and welcome all visitors to enjoy the beautiful weather, warm hospitality and memorable cuisine at Target Field, home of the Minnesota Twins.
1. Tony O’s Cuban Sandwich
This savory blend of melted Swiss cheese, ham, roasted pork, and thinly sliced pickles on toasted bread is Tony’s signature spin on the traditional Cuban sandwich. It has been a flagship favorite at Target Field since the 2010 opening.
Cuban native Tony Oliva is a former right fielder and designated hitter. He’s spent his entire major league baseball career with the Minnesota Twins and is still very much involved with the team.
When you’re at Target Field, you may see Tony mingling with fans, signing autographs and posing for photos.
2. Mac’s Walleye and Chips
With more than 10,000 fresh water lakes, walleye is a culinary favorite in Minnesota. Each hand cut, 4-ounce serving at this establishment is freshly breaded onsite with Mac’s secret recipe.
Originally created by former Minnesota North Star hockey player Tom McCarthy, Mac’s walleye and chips is a Minnesota legend.
3. Minneapple Pie
What’s more American than baseball and apple pie?
Originating at Minne’s Diner in Rogers, the Minneapple Pie is a crisp, delicious classic. Made from scratch using a secret family recipe and highest quality, all-natural ingredients (including General Mills Flour), the pie is then deep-fried to perfection.
Either solo or a la mode, Minneapple Pie is available at Target Field, the Minnesota State Fair in St. Paul, the Oklahoma State Fair in Tulsa, and year-round at Kowalski’s Markets.
4. Kramarczuk’s Sausage
I surveyed friends, colleagues, and family members to reveal their Target Field favorite and so many of them exclaimed, “Kramarczuk’s!” Why? It’s traditional Old World fare.
Family-owned since the 1940s, Kramarczuk’s is an institution in northeast Minneapolis. Hungarian sausage, Polish sausage and classic bratwurst are made fresh daily just one mile from Target Field and served hot in a bun with sauerkraut, peppers and onions. These are no ordinary sausages – they’re so good they won the 2013 James Beard award for American Classics.
5. Murray’s Steak Sandwich
A steak sandwich at a baseball stadium? You bet. Especially when it comes from Murray’s – home of the “silver butter knife steak” and winner of many awards for America’s best steakhouse.
When you’re at Target Field, check out the Delta Sky 360 location where Chef Brian seasons and grills the steak that is the centerpiece of this sought-after sandwich.
6. Izzy’s Hand Scooped Ice Cream
Looking for a divine dessert at Target Field? Try everyone’s favorite: Izzy’s.
Made fresh with local milk and eggs, Izzy’s ice cream features 150 flavors (due to space constraints, eight flavors are available at the baseball stadium). The trademarked Izzy’s scoop allows you to try two flavors – my favorites are Church Elderberry topped with Salted Caramel. Heavenly!
To everyone in town for America’s pastime, enjoy your visit.
We’re glad you came out to the ballgame – enjoy the food!
