Rangers to Offer More Beef This Season

One year after debuting a veggie sandwich, Rangers Ballpark in Arlington is beefing up its meat offerings with a pair of new steak sandwiches, all-beef hot dogs and beef sausages.

"Beef and steak are taking an even bigger role in concessions," says Glen White of Delaware North Companies Sportservice, a major concessionaire at the ballpark and DFW International Airport.

White says Rangers Ballpark's appreciation of beefy snacks was heightened by last season's successful chopped brisket sandwich, a late addition to the line-up that became tremendously popular during the championship playoffs.

White says steak's price point hasn't scared off hungry baseball fans.

"There's a value to it," he says. "We're still trying to price at a point that's appealing."

In addition to the new hot dogs and hickory-smoked sausages from Nolan Ryan's beef outfit, Sportservice will also sell two steak sandwiches under the Food Network label: a Red, White & Blue Steak sandwich, "served on a French demi baguette and topped with Maytag blue cheese and sweet and spicy Peppadew-pepper mayonnaise" and a Texas steak sandwich crowned with salsa verde.

"We've really tried to focus on foods that represent Texas," a release quotes Sportservice general manager Shawn Mattox as saying.

Other new items this season include Blue Bell ice cream and a three-pound pretzel.

Just trying to promote literacy in Texas, that's all. If any of the folks above would have actually read the article, they might have noticed Food Network and Sportservice were introducing TWO sandwiches. One that is common to several ballparks and the other with a Texas-twist to it. Anyway -- Go Rangers!

Hey, Texas Rangers - how 'bout some HomeRun Tacos on the menu this year? SERIOUSLY. But, with good tortillas and veggie options. PAHLEEEEZE!

Don't know what part of Texas he is from (must be Austin!) but I never heard of such a thing!

Nothing says Texas like a French baguette, blue cheese and fancy mayonnaise, y'all!

That veggie sandwich/burger never existed. I went to 8 games last year and asked about it each time. No one could ever direct my vegetarian friend to anything other than meatless nachos. I don't have a problem with people wanting to eat meat, but is it really that hard to figure out a healthy-ish alternative?
