Just north of Six Flags, Cowboy Stadium, and The Ranger Ballpark in Arlington are 2 little restaurants sitting right next to each other in a strip mall that go mostly unnoticed: New Yorker Pizza and Philly Connection. They are both worthy of being mentioned-the first serves, in my opinion, the best pizza in the metroplex. The second serves some great Philly's, but also serves something that is generally hard to find in the metroplex-Birch Beer. And not only do they serve it, but it is on the fountain, which makes it even better. Birch Beer, if you haven't heard of it, is primarily a northern east coast drink, similar to root beer, with a sweeter taste, and a purply-red color. Tonight I enjoyed mine with a pizza flavored Philly. If you are in the mood to try something new, be sure to stop here.
