  • We visited DKR stadium for a COVID-era football game. While we were very high up, we had an excellent view of the field and the surrounding area. They are closing in the open end of the stadium and....  more »

  • I have been to many college football stadiums. This was a decent stadium. Good price for liter waters. The only problem is parking and the directing of traffic after the game. Doesn’t seem to have a good system in place. Overall the stadium very nice and has good accommodations. To get in the stadium is pretty quick and the fan base was decent for the most part. You can pretty much get a good view from anywhere you sit in the stadium. The heat isn’t as bad as some people say. The streets can get a little bit crowded because there isn’t much space to walk around the stadium. They do have good food and bathrooms were nice. If you can get a parking pass that is the best route to go.
  • This is a huge stadium. Had so much fun here. They have activities for kids before the game. I recommend you find your seats well ahead of time. Some of the staff was helpful and some looked like they didn't want to be there and gave me wrong directions to our seats. My daughter did the herd run on the field and that whole process scared me. It was a little unorganized but I found my daughter eventually. I would not recommend it for kids under 8 because I can imagine how easy it would be for them to get lost in the crowd. Don't get me wrong, I think the staff that ran the herd run was great, they just need a better system. You have to watch a game here at least once in your life in my opinion. If you are a longhorn fan it's a must. The environment is awesome. The food was OK but I only had wedges and nachos because I am vegetarian but I'm sure meat eaters would enjoy the pluckers wings. There is food at almost every corner so like I said find your seats first then go for food. They have a clear bag policy so keep that in mind ladies. Hook em! 🤘
