Great on site facilities. Army tailgate was well staffed & food was great. Stadium is a bit dated on concessions but it's an historic gift to football. The complex is great & traffic was not bad. Easy to Uber here & there in Dallas.

The game was fantastic. The staff at the game, the gate, event staff were really nice and polite. This was my first trip to the Cotton Bowl and I do plan on returning.

Worth seeing if you are a football fan. Lots of history and displays. Recommended for older kids and adults, the younger kids wouldn't stay interested.
