1. The Hot Box at FryBox
The guys at FryBox have made boxed fries into an art form, and they went above and beyond when they invented the Hot Box. These spuds are topped with pulled chicken, Frank’s Red Hot, and blue cheese. It will spoil your opinion on fries for good, but only in the best of ways.
2. Smoked Cardinal at Mr. Reds Smokehouse

This delicious cardinal is stuffed with an even more delicious brat and then smoked to perfection. Never too gamey, it will have you running back for more just as soon as you finish your first serving.
3. Pot Roast Mac & Cheese at The Machine Room
This adult version of Mac & Cheese will bring out the BBQ loving kid in you. It’s a gourmet style mac and cheese topped with savory pot roast. Served piping hot, it is so good you’ll be putting pot roast on you (and your kid’s) macaroni from this day forward.
4. Chili Coney at Skyline
A traditional ballpark hot dog, the Chili Coney from Skyline is a fan favorite and a Cincinnati Reds tradition. This juicy hot dog is topped with a special, secret ingredient chili, shredded cheese, mustard, and onions. Without a doubt, this is one hot dog you won’t want to miss out on.
5. Pepper Pot Box at FryBox
Another gourmet FryBox specialty is the Pepper Pot Box. Staying on the pot roast trend, this boxed fry meal is topped with a mouth watering array of pot roast, pepperocini, onions, sour cream, and grilled peppers. Leave it to FryBox to take plain old french fries and make them into a french fried, mouth watering ballgame meal.
