A Richardson burger restaurant is busting a move on Dallas. Haystack Burgers and Barley will open its second branch at chi-chi Turtle Creek Village and is anticipated to open in August.

Haystack is a fast-casual concept that serves fresh burgers, salads, sandwiches, sides, and milk shakes. It also has a bar with 14 beers on tap; more than 50 American 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. There's a veggie burger, a children’s menu, and an off-the-menu special that changes monthly. 

The new location will also have a bar and an outdoor patio.

"We have loved creating a special place in Richardson and so [are] excited to take our food and experience and share it with our Dallas and Uptown neighbors and friends," says Kevin Galvan, who operates Haystack with his wife, Jenny.

The Galvans opened Haystack Burgers and Barley in 2013, next to the Alamo Drafthouse Richardson. Kevin is the fourth generation of restaurant owners in his family and previously owned and operated Ricardo’s Tex Mex in Allen.  Some of those family recipes can be found on the Haystack menu, such as the chips and salsa and queso. There is also Frito pie.

The new branch will go in at 3838 Oak Lawn Ave. at Blackburn Avenue. It'll be on the bottom floor of Two Turtle Creek, the office building, behind Paul Martin's American Grill.
