Blue Goose Cantina opened its Grand Prairie location April 11 with a ribbon cutting that included Blue Goose executives and an announcement of a partnership with Grand Prairie Independent School District and the culinary arts program at Dubiski Career High School. The festivities included the donation of a much-needed Supreme Refrigeration Two Door Refrigerated Sandwich Prep Table and a Cayenne Countertop Electric Griddle to 161 Bistro, which is operated by Culinary Arts students at Dubiski Career High School. Blue Goose and Dubiski are also working together on culinary internships to provide hands-on experiences to aspiring chefs.
Grand Prairie is one of the largest Blue Goose Cantina restaurants with more than 7,700 square feet and a 302-seating capacity. It currently employs approximately 250 team members.

The restaurant includes a display of a chef’s coat from Dubiski Career High School and football jerseys from the high schools. The menu includes Blue Goose’s fajitas, top shelf queso, homemade tortillas, enchiladas, tacos, margaritas and more.
