Comfort Food and Creative Classics

Want a Texas-sized meal to pair with your Six Flags Over Texas adventures? If you’re looking for down-home, country cooking, Babe’s Chicken Dinner House is the place. Feast on crispy fried chicken, chicken-fried steak, fried catfish, or hickory-smoked chicken. Round out the meal with a selection of side dishes like creamy mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, country gravy, or buttermilk biscuits. There’s also green salad if you’re into that sort of thing! Then for dessert, dive into a slice of lemon, chocolate, or coconut meringue pie or pineapple upside-down cake like grandma used to make. Plus, the decor makes dining in an event in itself, with walls of the patio built out of petrified wood.

Humperdink’s Restaurant & Brewpub is a Dallas/Fort Worth area institution. Since 1976, Humperdink’s has been serving up gourmet burgers, sandwiches, pizza, and all-day breakfast—a great option for vacation late nights and sleeping in. The Six Flags Drive location in Arlington is so close to the park, it’s an ideal spot to catch a meal before or after a day of adventure. Get your favorite locally sourced, American dishes and enjoy seasonal chef specials. Humperdink’s is also the place for craft beer and cocktails. The restaurant has been brewing its own beer since 1995, well before the craft beer boom. Many of its small batch bocks, blondes, IPAs, amber ales, and seasonal brews are regional and national craft beer award winners. Grab a pint or share a large cocktail and taste for yourself!
