Kenny Mills is a bodacious fan of the burger, and does them extremely well at his burger emporium at 1700 West Park Row in Arlington. There you will find Chop House Burger which is celebrating the Cowboy’s insanely good season with a burger dedicated to the Pro Bowl and their entry into the play-off this coming weekend. We would love to point out that not one, but six of Dallas’ players will be playing in the Pro Bowl. The Cowboys are sending quarterback Tony Romo and leading NFL rusher DeMarco Murray, as well as wide receiver Dez Bryant; center Travis Frederick; rookie guard Zack Martin; and tackle Tyron Smith.

Today is Opening Day of Baseball at Globe Life Park (née Ballpark in Arlington) and the crowds are record breaking. Walking through the various parking lots you will see plumes of smoke as tailgaters are taking advantage of the beautiful weather and pre-game spirits. Grills are in full production to beat hunger, and possibly the high prices set inside the park for hot dogs and nachos. As many know the Ranger chefs have been busy over the past few year to set themselves apart from the past driven by sad boiled wieners and flimsy pseudo-cheese soaked chips. The birth of the Boomstick brought in a new era to the ballpark, one worthy of Texas bragging rights. The Boomstick is a 2-foot all-beef hot dog, smothered in chili, nacho cheese, jalapenos and caramelized onions, all on top of a massive potato bun. The whole thing weighs in at 3 pounds, and when introduced in 2012 the Rangers sold a half million dollars worth of the dogs that first year. Continue reading
