Eats, drinks and more
For those of us who can never decide what to eat, Texas Live! literally has everything. Pizza, burgers, barbecue and tacos, the list goes on. Buffalo Cauliflower Wings and Thai Peanut Brussels Sprouts? That, too! Texas Live! is a one-stop destination with more than 35,000 square feet of restaurants, dance floors and shops. Plus, it’s just steps away from all three stadiums (calories don’t count if you walked there, right?).
Sports fanatics and enthusiasts are welcome at Texas Live! if you haven’t noticed but kick it up a notch at these signature spots. Brought to you by the one and only Dallas Cowboys legend Troy Aikman, Troy’s has a full menu of the former quarterback’s personal favorites. Grab a slice at Pudge’s Pizza, that’s Ranger’s catcher Pudge Rodriguez. It’s so delicious you might as well get the whole pie, we won’t tell! Play hard. Party Harder. That’s the motto at Rangers Republic. Their Tex-Mex infused menu and weekly theme nights hit it out of the park.
Is mouthwatering barbecue calling your name? Get classics like brisket, ribs and other smokey slow-cooked meats from family-owned Lockhart Smokehouse. Texas Live! is a one-way ticket to flavortown, but it’s official with Guy Fieri’s Taco Joint. Break out your sunglasses and frosted tips ‘cause these scratch-made tacos and margaritas are fire.
Big screens and backyards
If you thought your TV was big, wait ‘til you see Live! Arena. Watch the game front and center on their 100-foot LED HD television while you dine on their slow-cooked Pulled Pork Sandwich and Tuna Poke Tacos. Bring out your competitive side at Sports & Social. With two bowling lanes, arcade games, ping pong and more, this place will keep the good times and good food coming. From baseball movie nights to car shows to pop-punk concerts, there’s a ticket to remember for everyone at Arlington Backyard. Keep an eye on their calendar. This outdoor venue has events like Puppy Yoga and the Texas Wing Festival all year.
A night to remember
For a more elevated experience, Miller Tavern & Beer Garden has upscale gastro-pub fare with world class beers. Stop by for karaoke on Saturdays and let the beer do the singing. At Choctaw VIP Lounge, the best bartenders in town deal out handcrafted cocktails to bachelorettes, birthday parties and executive meetings. Available by reservation only – that’s how you know it’s good. The latest addition, Revolver Brewing BLDG 5, offers craft beer, a brew pub, a tasting room and outdoor seating to kick back and relax.
Grab your cowboy hat, because PBR Texas is the place for folks looking to two-step the night away. Whether you’re country at heart or just for the night, test your skills on one of their mechanical bulls. You might need some liquid courage before you hop on. Don’t worry, they’ve got you covered with that, too.
