While the Dallas Cowboys were busy snatching a game away from the New York Giants 27-26 in the 2015 NFL season opener on September 13, those who were in attendance at AT&T Stadium could celebrate a new slate of menu items that embrace good old Texas food.
According to a release, the menu by the Legends culinary team responded to visitors in search of Texas-themed food and Southwestern cuisine — but with a twist. The new recipes feature savory and spicy flavors, as well as some dessert.
