A local staple, J Gilligan’s is a favorite for locals, visitors, and students alike. Inventor of the Irish Nachos – homestyle cut potatoes piled high with melty cheese, bacon, fresh jalapenos, onions and tomatoes – your stop isn’t complete without at least one order. It’s even Guy Fieri approved!

Is it ever a bad time for tacos? I think not. They have everything from street style and classics like barbacoa to fried mahi. TIP: order the queso and chicharrones. It’s good to the last crunch. While you’re there, you can stop by some of the other local spots in Urban Union.

Texas Live! is right next door to Globe Life Field and walking distance from AT&T Stadium, making it super easy to get to your game. Arlington Backyard is open air so there’s plenty of room plus it’s covered so it’s good to go rain or shine. TIP: Check out their upcoming events and you can catch some outdoor live music.

Enjoy their slow roasted bourbon butter chicken and other tasty eats on their breezy patio. They have a ton of TVs, so you can catch the game there if you want to stick around for dessert. You can also grab a cookie on your way out, Tiff’s Treats is next door and the smell is pretty hard to resist.
