Texas Torpedo (stuffed jalapeños)

A “Texas Torpedo” is a cheese-stuffed jalapeño, popular on several Dallas menus. A “Texas Torpedo” can also mean a sandwich with jalapeños or salsa added.

Flannery’s has a high-end Irish pub atmoshphere. If you are looking for great pub burgers and sandwiches with an added flair, Flannery’s is the place. My top recommendation is the Texas Torpedo’s appetizer. They deep fried wantons filled with cream cheese, chicken, and spices. You can dip the Torpedo’s in salsa or sour cream. They are amazing!

With food like fried crab cakes, clams on the half shell, Texas torpedoes, and tamales—we hung around the buffet line more than the line dance.
