Dallas Cowboys Tailgating Guide


As the saying goes, “Everything is bigger in Texas” and if you’ve ever been to a Dallas Cowboys tailgate, you know this to be true. The Cowboys are often referred to as “America’s team” and even if they are struggling on the field, their fans make sure to represent the American dream at each and every tailgate party. Cowboys fans are as loyal as they come and as dedicated to throwing the perfect pregame bash as anyone in the country. Come celebrate one of the most storied franchises in NFL history by getting to game early, wearing your Cowboys gear and enjoying the food, brew and company of the locals. This is what football fandom is all about.

Before you join the 80,000 screaming fans inside the state-of-the-art Cowboys Stadium, make sure to get some famous Texas barbecue at one of the hundreds of tailgate parties outside. They should be pretty easy to find considering that smoked baby back rib aroma will be permeating the air around the stadium, leading you right to where you want to be. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on one of Fandeavor.com’s Premium or Ultimate Experiences, then the work will be done for you, as an incredible tailgate party is included in your experience.

No matter where or who you are tailgating with, it’s important to get to the stadium as early as you can. Firstly, you won’t want to get stuck in traffic, even though this may be inevitable, and secondly you’re going to need plenty of time to enjoy the festive atmosphere, a delicious pregame meal and of course, a cold one (or more). The lots at Cowboys Stadium open five hours before kickoff, but it’s never a bad idea to get there even earlier to ensure you find a great spot and beat the rush.

One must-see tailgating area outside Cowboys Stadium is the East Plaza. It features a full bar, jumbo video board and live music. Even if you’ve got a great tailgating space for yourself, the East Plaza is where you can get your groove on while getting ready for smash-mouth Cowboys action. Come thirsty and beat that Texas heat with some cold beverages while enjoying local bands.

And remember the aforementioned Texas slogan? That’s why if you want to hang with other Cowboy fanatics, you’ve got to bring a big appetite. These portions are not for the faint of heart. Ribs, chicken, burgers and brats are just some of the tasty tailgating entrees you will find before a Cowboys game and there’s no doubt you’ll want to try a little of everything.

The Dallas Cowboys are known for a lot of things, so it’s no surprise that we will also find tailgating on that list. Cowboys fans certainly do it big and if that’s how you like to tailgate and to party, then Cowboys Stadium is your ideal destination on Sunday.
