Ice cream, tacos and Chinese cuisine are just a few of the things you'll be able to find at the Dallas Cowboys headquarters in Frisco next year, which is shaping up to be a dining hotspot. The Star, as the retail complex and football practice facility is known, will be home to nearly 20 restaurants plus a bowling alley.

On Thursday, Jerry Jones, Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager, and Charlotte Jones Anderson, the team's executive vice president and brand manager, announced new eateries that are slated to open in early 2017. They include the locally-founded deli East Hampton Sandwich Co., sweets spot Cow Tipping Creamery, and popular bar Concrete Cowboy.

"It's about creating an atmosphere," said Anderson at the press conference.

"The variety and quality of this new group of businesses we have make The Star a unique destination, one, I think ... will draw people from all over this area," said Jones.

Below are the newly announced restaurants that will inhabit the retail portion of the 91-acre, $1.5 billion complex:

Concrete Cowboy

A "high energy bar" with live entertainment that's expected to be a good game day-watching spot. The location in Uptown is just a bar and dance club, but this one will also be a full-service restaurant.

Cow Tipping Creamery

This ice cream company started in Austin, but Cane Rosso owner Jay Jerrier helped bring the business into a permanent home in East Dallas earlier this year. Cane Rosso is also opening a new location at The Star, so it sort of makes sense this ice cream shop would join the party. You know what that means, Frisco: bubble cones.

The Donut Kitchen

Love breakfast every hour of the day? You'll love this next one. The Donut Kitchen offers more than 30 different gourmet doughnuts and breakfast sandwiches. Additionally, it serves lunch sandwiches, wraps, and paninis.

East Hampton Sandwich Co.

What started a sandwich dream has turned into something of an empire. Since its first shop in Dallas, East Hampton Sandwich Co. has expanded to locations in Southlake, Plano and Fort Worth. Now add Frisco.

Howard Wang's China Grill

This will be the third location of this Dallas brand. Founded in 2005, the restaurant has become known for its Chinese-American fare. (You may also have heard of a sister restaurant called Howard Wang's China Brasserie in Uptown Dallas.)

Raising Cane's

Fast-food fried chicken -- 'nuff said.

Trophy Park Sports Lounge

This concept is expected to be an adult playground. Its 14,000 square feet will house a full-service restaurant and bar, bowling lanes, and an outdoor patio with bocce ball courts, a putting green and 30-foot screen to watch football. Per a press release, the food will be "classic and modern American cuisine."

Yucatan Taco Stand

This place is renown for its mile-high nachos. The fast-casual restaurant also serves tacos and margaritas.

One of the country's most interesting chefs, José Andrés, is opening a restaurant in Frisco

Zaytinya

The Star will be home to this restaurant's first Texas location. It's described as "taking inspiration from Turkish, Greek and Lebanese cuisines," served primarily as small plates. The restaurant comes from José Andrés, who Dallas Morning News dining critic Leslie Brenner calls "one of the country's most interesting chefs."

Ziziki's

Expect Greek fare from this spot.

These restaurants join others, such as Mi Cocina, The Common Table, Dee Lincoln Prime and Neighborhood Services, which were revealed earlier this year. Other retail tenants announced Thursday include the Lincoln Experience Center, which will essentially be a car showroom, PlainsCaptial Bank, and Fans United, an apparel shop.
