How do you make a hot summer concert lineup even better? Pair your show of choice with a great meal beforehand. There are more than a dozen food and drink options at Toyota Music Factory, from Japanese cuisine to Salvadorian-Mexican fusion to burgers and pizza.
Here are our recommendations for what nibble before the musicians take the stage at The Pavillion at the Toyota Music Factory.
Counting Crows with special guest Live: 25 Years and Counting
Nosh & Bottle
Not feeling a sit-down meal before a stand-up concert? This Mediterranean and New York-style deli and cafe offers sandwiches, wraps, salads, nosh boards, charcuterie plates, cheeses, and wine pairings. Grab the roast beef with Swiss cheese on a hoagie roll, or a classic meatball sub with sausage and peppers, then get ready to recover the satellites at the amphitheatre venue.
Gladys Knight & the O'Jays
Pick a spot on one of the restaurant's two patios, or take advantage of that sweet, sweet air conditioning inside, to order a specialty burger or shareable snack. The hits from the R&B co-headliners are vast, but not as vast as the selections for beer, cocktails, and wines by the glass.
Gerardo Ortiz with Pancho Barraza and Kevin Ortiz
Boi Na Braza
The Brazilian steakhouse is just the right vibe to pump you up for this concert, which brings the Grammy-nomiated Mexican singer-songwriter to North Texas. Fire-roasted steaks, mouthwatering chickend, fresh legs of lamb, and more are sliced tableside by gauchos, and they'll keep the food coming until you say "stop." Ensure you get the table you want at the time you want by making a reservation.
For a different kind of show, don't forget about Alamo Drafthouse Cinema. The eight-screen theater at Toyota Music Factory serves not just a massive menu of hearty favorites, but also special snacks, entrees, and drinks that are themed to the current celluloid blockbusters.
