A growing burger restaurant chain has three new locations on the books set to open in the next year. Haystack Burgers & Barley, a locally-owned and family-run restaurant from Kevin and Jenny Galvan, is expanding with two new locations opening in Dallas, and another in Frisco.
The locations are as follows:
- Hillside Village at 6465 E. Mockingbird Ln., Dallas
- Hillcrest Village at 6959 Arapaho Rd., Dallas
- 6705 Main St. in Frisco
According to a release, the Frisco location will open in July. Hillside Village is slated for a late 2019 opening. Hillcrest Village is forecast to open in early 2020.
Kevin Galvan says in a statement that they chose these areas as they all have a great sense of community, stating, "We can't wait to be a part of these neighborhoods."
Haystack is a fast-casual concept that serves burgers, salads, sandwiches, sides, and milkshakes. It also has a bar with craft beers, and a signature frozen cocktail with Maker’s Mark, orange juice, lemonade, and custom-blended iced tea.
Menu items include the Haystack Burger with cheddar cheese, barbecue sauce, bacon, and fried onions. There's also a chicken-fried burger with jalapeño-bacon cream gravy, a veggie burger, and an off-the-menu special that changes monthly.
The original Haystack Burgers opened at Richardson Heights Shopping Center, near the Alamo Drafthouse, in 2013. A second location opened in Turtle Creek Village at 3838 Oak Lawn Ave. in 2016.
Greg Pierce and Ryan May with CBRE in Dallas represented Haystack Burgers in site selection and lease negotiations for the Hillside and Hillcrest locations. The landlords for both locations were represented by Shop Companies in Dallas.
Pierce, who is senior VP with CBRE, says in a statement that they're "extremely excited" about what the restaurants represent to their new locations.
"Hillside Village in the Lakewood trade area is an underserved restaurant market and the location at Mockingbird and Abrams will most assuredly become a neighborhood favorite," he says. "Hillcrest Village in north Dallas is also going through a major transformation and combined with the dense population, excellent demographics and high traffic counts, Haystack and the new restaurants will hopefully succeed in a big way."
