Texas News– We pay homage to the Texas Rangers home opener of the 2012 baseball season with a list of places to eat at Rangers Ballpark.
Here are Rangers Ballpark’s Five Standouts:
Captain Morgan Club
If you don’t want to Champion Dog with your mouth you need to do it with your eyes only at Captain Morgan Club.
The Budweiser Bowtie at Vandergriff Plaza
It’s not just basic concessions, kiddie meals and candy, anymore. The plaza now has four new restaurants that you’ll surely enjoy.
- Taqueria (street tacos)
- Smokehouse 557 (barbecue and turkey legs)
- Ryan’s Express 34 (as in Nolan Ryan beef burgers)
- American Dog (hotdog)
Like eating waffles? Like dogs? Check it out and then comment here if it’s a terrible idea or the best baseball concession ever. [Section 128)
The Diamond Club is offering ticket holders the option to get a full meal in two hours before the game and up to one hour after while enjoying a great view. [Lower Level entrance]
Choosing Cajun or garlic fries is easy, but watch out for the gum or your teammates might not appreciate your seventh inning cheers. [Sections 9 and 42]
Asian Wok: Stir-fried noodles. (Section 124)
Beers of Texas: Beers from Lone Star to Lawnmower, but so far, no city brews. (Section 131)
