Globe Life Field, the new home of the Texas Rangers, has three new food concepts in the wings. All three are either local or Texas-based, and two out of three are chicken, although they focus on different body parts, IE tenders versus wings.
If you like chicken, you're covered.
The new concessions will all serve slightly abbreviated menus featuring signature dishes. They're slated to open in March.
The list is as follows:
Golden Chick. Local chain dedicated to chicken tenders will open a stand on the first base side of the main concourse, where they'll serve chicken tenders, sandwiches, "select sides," and their famous rolls. "Select sides" translates into "not all the sides, just some of the sides."
Bahama Bucks. Texas-based shaved ice company will open two locations, one on the main concourse and the other on the upper concourse, from which they'll serve a variety of popular flavors including Birthday Cake, Tiger’s Blood, and Blue Raspberry.
Pluckers Wing Bar, the Austin-based chain known for its wings and more than 20 sauces, will open a location on the main concourse near centerfield. Their menu will focus on wings and waffle fries.
Pluckers was founded in Austin in 1995. They now have 25 locations in Baton Rouge, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston Killeen, San Marcos, and San Antonio.
In Dallas-Fort Worth, there are seven locations in Addison, Allen, Plano, Grapevine, Arlington, Alliance/Fort Worth, and Greenville Avenue in Dallas. It might seem weird to open a location at the ballpark when there's already one in Arlington, but that location is off I-30 at the Matlock Road exit.
A full lineup of concessions coming to the new stadium is still to come. The first event at the stadium is the March 14 concert featuring Willie Nelson, Chris Stapleton, Jamey Johnson, and Yola. The first Texas Rangers regular season game is on March 31.
