The Ultimate Guide to Good Eats Near Globe Life Park

The city of Arlington, located between Dallas and Fort Worth– has much to brag about: it's home to Six Flags Over Texas, Hurricane Harbor and the Dallas Cowboys AT&T Stadium. It's also where you'll find Globe Life Park, the stomping grounds of the Texas Rangers baseball team. And while many of Arlington's attractions may be seasonal, including baseball, which operates from April through September, the dining venues in this neck of the woods run full steam all year round. Plus they offer more tastier options than your usual overpriced concession grub.

If you're craving a quick, excellent meal at an extremely fair price, then you've got options. For the best Lousiana-style comfort food fare, head to Damian's Cajun Soul Cafe. And those in search of an amazing sandwich should stop by Dino's Subs, where they make the bread from scratch and hand-cut the ingredients for each sandwich to order. There's also Ahi Poke Bowl, a buzzy fast-casual dining spot that specializes in standout renditions of the classic Hawaiian diced-fish and rice dish. 

For pre-game or post-game drinks, you can’t beat R Bar & Grill, the Hilton's sophisticated sports bar and gastropub. The food (think street tacos, sliders and gourmet pizzas) is phenomenal, and the crafted cocktails are even better.

For spot-on kabobs and meze platters, Prince Lebanese Grill is superb. Or if you're looking for something a bit upscale, try Cacharel, a classy French steakhouse boasting excellent food and panoramic views of Arlington's entertainment district.

If these dining gems sound good, then you'll want to have a look at the rest of the list 10Best has compiled. Just make sure to check opening hours before you go.
