On the heels of the menu item’s successful debut, the Texas Rangers are adding the Dilly Dog to a second concession stand at their ballpark.
Standing out as a unique creation, the Dilly Dog is a Angus beef jumbo dog that is stuffed inside of a hollowed-out pickle, and then battered and deep fried. It attracted plenty of hype leading up to the Rangers’ home opener last Thursday, as it was not only one of the more interesting additions to Globe Life Park in Arlington’s menu but one of the most anticipated new food items in the majors. (It was named one of our top new food items for the 2018 MLB season.)
Early returns have been positive, as the Rangers reportedly sold 2,500 Dilly Dogs during their initial four-game homestand, prompting them to add it to the menu at a second concession stand. Initially exclusive to the State Fair stand at section 42, the Dilly Dog will now also be available at a stand near section 9. More from WFAA.com:
The concession – exclusive to Globe Life Park in Arlington – was only available at the “State Fare” stand at Section 42, on the main concourse near the first base entrance to the stadium, on Opening Weekend. A second stand on the opposite corner of the stadium, near Section 9, will sell the Dilly Dog starting Friday.
“We have been overwhelmed at the demand for the Dilly Dogs by fans at Globe Life Park,” Sportservice Arlington General Manager Casey Rapp said in a press release. “As a result, we are adding a second location where fans can purchase this tasty treat. This will allow our customers to buy their Dilly Dogs and get back to their seats to enjoy the game.”
This change will take effect on Friday, when the Rangers return to Globe Life Park for the beginning of a six-game homestand.
