    Hit up the Kiolbassa Grand Slam Grillers stands for awesome sausages on poppy seed rolls. Order a spicy sausage w/ chili, cheese, onions & peppers, and wash it down with a Saint Arnold beer.

    Opened in 1999, the park is home to the Houston Astros. The ballpark is the first major sports facility to have a closed captioning board for the hearing impaired.

    If you're new to US sports this is a must do, it's a lot of fun. Baked potato fries were amazing. The Friday night fireworks were a real bonus, opening the roof and turning the lights out.

    Even though this ballpark is a retractable roof, it is a very intimate ballpark. I enjoyed the beer selection at this ballpark, and keep an eye out for the train in LF after a Astros HR.

    If you have allergies, I'd suggest popping an Allegra or other medication before going. There are nice food options around and it's fairly comfortable.

    On Friday, Saturday and Sunday games if you bring a label from a coke bottle, you'll get a hot dog, coke, chips, and a baseball cap along with your ticket in the mezzanine section for $20. ;)

    Loaded baked potatoes are the best. The bottomless popcorn is a great deal for the kids. Went for r he first time tonight w my family as we just moved from NY 2 weeks ago. Beautiful stadium!

    They may not always win, but if you're heading to an Astros game, try to make it on a Friday. 'Big and Bright Friday Night' at MMP boasts an amazing firework show after each game. Lots of fun!

    If you're in Houston and want something fun to do a visit to the Astros ballpark is a must! Right in the middle of downtown Houston there is so much to do!

    I’ve never been here, but I have had the pleasure of getting to know quite a few maids in my time. If my experience with them is any indication, this is bound to be a very fun place.

    Where the Houston Astros play, there are fireworks every Friday night game and it provides a great view of the city. Stop in and catch a game.

    If the roof is closed, it's an OK park. If it's open, the atmosphere is a lot more fun. Overpriced concessions (like all ball parks). The WiFi is excellent.

    One of the best "new" stadiums in MLB. The Juicebox aka Enron aka Minute Maid is a fantastic stadium. Hopefully the Astros become a fantastic team sometime in the next 15 years

    Richie Sexson, then of the Brewers, is the only player to have ever hit the flagpole in center. There used to be a visible mark from the ball until the 2011 season, when the pole was repainted.

    What do the 1860s, oranges and home runs have in common? Not much, other than the citrus-filled replica train that chugs down the track in left field every time an Astro goes yard. Read more

    Beautiful, old-fashioned ballpark, carved into the side of old Union Station. It's as much a shrine to baseball as it is a vehicle for it.

    For approx. $30, you can get the All-you-can-eat deal, includes snacks, hotdog and soda. It's limited to the first 1k people that signup. Keep in-mind the food court for this deal in by right field.

    If you're looking for a fitted ask for the New Era hat stand or visit the Home Plate store or Union Station.

    Don't have much money? Get there early, buy the cheapest tickets available and stand by the Chevron pump in centerfield. You'll get a great view, access to home runs and you'll be on TV!

    The All You Can Eat option is good for your money, but lacks in variety. And make sure to add plenty of fixins on your hot dog.

    I enjoyed the stadium being indoors. Wasn't sure about it at first, but since it's so hot out at a 1pm game it was nice.

    Nice park but tight seating considering its newer. Look for the train that moves when home run is hit.

    Try to find a free parking spot at the curb nearby. You can often find one if you arrive 1 hour early (to watch BP).

    Read the street signs when parking on the street meters. Parking right next to the ballpark on gamedays will get you towed.

    Don't waste your time with the funnel cake. It's pre-made frozen, and takes about 5min to go through heat belt... Super Dog with chili and cheese is YUM!
