Everything is bigger in Texas, including, apparently, the food at the Houston Rockets home games.
Ahead of Friday’s game against the Dallas Mavericks, the Rockets announced that Toyota Center, their home arena, will sell a hot dog topped with unconventional toppings in select dealership areas.
And it’s far from your average Frankfurt.
According to the venue’s social media, the “Jumbo Mac ‘n Cheese Hot Dog with Fruit and Bacon Curls” is exclusively available in the Lower Lobby near Section 114.
Fans with exploratory taste buds will cost $ 12 to try the treat.
Those not looking to combine cheese and sweet cereal can skip to the next section to try a much more standard menu item.
Directed to the @Houston Rockets match tonight? We have new food products!

This is not the first time that the place has experimented with its cuisine. According to NBC’s Houston-based KPRC-TV, executive chef Eduardo Romero said his culinary group aimed to “provide something really exciting for guests” ahead of Houston’s 2019 playoff series against the Golden State Warriors.
Playoff additions included a “Foot Long Mac and Cheese Dog,” priced at $ 13, and “Texas Tots,” which are deep-fried potato cylinders topped with brisket, cheese and green onions, at the top. price of $ 15.
Houston is currently at the bottom of the Western Conference standings, so it looks like a playoff menu is unlikely to be in the works this season.
