Ahh, baseball. Is there anything this city is more obsessed with? Fans can catch dozens of games each summer, and fortunately there are more than just peanuts and Cracker Jack to go with that $9 Bud Light. Busch Stadium (Broadway and Poplar Street; 314-345-9000) now has several specialty carts and concession stands, and Gut Check tried them so you don't have to.

Kohn's Kosher Knackwurst (Kohn's Food Cart)

Kohn's Kosher cart debuted this season, the first kosher stand at Busch since Best's Kosher Hot Dog Stands left (and stopped production) in 2008. You can get the knackwurst, knosh or Kohn's famous pastrami sandwich. The wurst is just as good as the classic ballpark dog, and Kohn's has been a staple in the community since 1963. Busch even hosted its first Jewish Community Night in July -- but you don't have be Jewish to enjoy this all-beef frank.

Classic Nachos (El Birdos Cantina, main level in section 148)

Nachos are a sports-game staple in general, and it doesn't get better than that (probably) fake, melty cheese. The nachos at El Birdos Cantina are the same as around the stadium, but you can add shredded chicken and jalapenos here. Oh, and pulled pork. There's also an El Birdos Cantina build-your-own nachos station in section 141, but you can't go wrong with the original. Plus, at $6.75, nachos are one of the cheaper items that aren't like, peanuts. Did we mention all the cheese?
