Comerica Park, home of the star-studded Detroit Tigers baseball team, is a state-of-the-art stadium that features a museum, a ferris wheel and plenty of great food options. In addition to the standard stadium fare of hot dogs, peanuts and sausages, you’ll find one of the best known and most beloved coney spots in Detroit, Leo’s Coney Island. Leo’s offers typical coney fare like coney dogs, gyros and Greek salads. It’s open for all Tigers games and most events two hours prior to game time and closes after the seventh inning.

You can’t talk about great stadium food at Comerica Park without talking about the business that put the owner of the Tigers on the map. Tigers owner Mike Ilitch opened his first Little Caesar’s way back in 1959, and it’s now one of the largest pizza franchises in the U.S. Even though Little Caesar’s has cheap prices, that doesn’t mean you won’t find great pizza. You get all-natural ingredients like dough that’s made fresh daily, 100 percent real mozzarella cheese and vine-ripe tomatoes. You’ll find several Little Caesar’s locations at Comerica, in sections 115, 137, 217, 323, 334 and in the Big Cat Food Court.

Charlie Sanders’ BBQ, named after the legendary Detroit Lions tight end and seven-time Pro Bowler, has some of the tastiest barbecue around, thanks in large part to Mr. Sanders’ own “Gridiron Gourmet” BBQ sauce. You’ll find it slathered on pulled pork sandwiches, pulled pork nachos and boneless buffalo wings. Charlie Sanders’ BBQ is open on all game days.
