ROUND ROCK, Texas - Ballpark food never tasted so good! The Round Rock Express is proud to announce an agreement by its sister company, Ryan Sanders Sports Services (RS3) and Jack Allen's Kitchen (JAK) to run a full-service bar and restaurant located in the Intel Club on the second floor of Dell Diamond for the 2014 season.
"This is a marriage of two great Central Texas brands, both with the same core values of providing a quality product and service to the public," said Jack Gilmore, owner and executive chef of JAK.
Jack Allen's Kitchen at Dell Diamond will feature a menu of JAK signature dishes with the same focus of fresh, locally sourced food, and a dynamic bar menu. Served exclusively in the Intel Club, fans can enjoy a mouth-watering meal and creative cocktail from JAK in air conditioned comfort while taking in an Express game. Membership is required to the Intel Club and can be purchased with season ticket packages. Day passes are also available for single game purchases.
"This exciting partnership is just another way the Express and RS3 can bring the best to Central Texas while keeping Dell Diamond a premier entertainment destination," said Reese Ryan, Express CEO.
The Express kicks off their 15th season and will officially open Jack Allen's Kitchen at Dell Diamond on Thursday, April 3 against the Oklahoma City RedHawks.
