Dallas Mavericks superstar Dirk Nowitzki is a future Hall of Famer.

He can also be a hunger buster.

The Dirkburger, American Airlines Center’s most popular burger-of-the-month, is back this month in honor of Nowitzki’s quest to reach the 30,000 career points milestone.

The Dirkburger will be sold at Grill Zones concession stands 106, 114 and 118 tonight when the Mavericks host Memphis. The cost is $18.

Nowitzki is 48 points away from being the sixth player in NBA history to score at least 30,000 points.

The burger will be served at each Mavericks and Dallas Stars game throughout March.

Nowitzki and AAC executive chef Mark Mabry created the Dirkburger last March.

The 1/3 pound burger has jalapeno beer cheese, bacon onion marmalade, arugula and mustard horseradish aioli on a Bavarian pretzel bun and is served with french fries.

The 2017 Dirkburger will be accompanied by a souvenir Dirk 30K Cup (24oz) with fans’ choice of Bud Light or refillable soda.

Dirk Nowitzki talked about the newest Maverick Nerlens Noel.
