Entertainment options abound in Frisco

Frisco, TX (WDAY TV) - This week, Frisco, Texas is all about football, but there's plenty to do for the thousands of fans who made the trip south besides catch the game.

This week, Frisco, Texas is all about football, but there's plenty to do for the thousands of fans who made the trip south besides catch the game.

As you head down Main Street into downtown Frisco, Texas, you pass none other than Bison Trail. It's as if this city, which has tripled in size over the last decade, was expecting a herd of North Dakota State football fans from the very beginning.

Mayor Maher Maso – Frisco Mayor: “From what I've heard, you guys will have a lot of tailgaters and a lot of fans here. I'm looking forward to meeting some of them and learning from them.”

Quite a few of those tailgaters and many without tickets will wind most likely wind up at the Londoner Pub. The bar offers 30 beers on tap, plenty of TV's and it's only a few hundred yards from the stadium. And the atmosphere is truly authentic.

Keith Neaville – Manager, Londoner’s Pub: “One thing is the owner, I mean he's a Brit, he had a pub over there in a Train Station and he brought that concept over here, so you are definitely not going to get what you get here anywhere else.”

Everybody likes to try something new, and if it's Texas BBQ that you're looking for, we've heard the brisket at Rudy's is where it's at. And the restaurant actually shares a parking lot with the stadium

Jay Verver – General Manager, Rudy’s: “Texas is all about BBQ, it's a huge thing down here and we pride ourselves with being the best in Texas. We got all natural wood-smoked meats. We feel get some people from way up north down here, they'll fall in love with it.”

Rudy's Bar-B-Que offers its own blend of sauce, lean meats, and the not so lean meats. If you want to go beyond the backyard of the stadium - Frisco has plenty of restaurants and family activities for everyone.

Mayor Maso: “It's a very young community, a great place to raise a family, one of the safest places to raise a family. Men's Journal just voted us one of the best places in the U.S. to raise an athlete.”

And those athletes raised mostly up north will put on the grand finale in less than three days.
