A biscuit-themed restaurant is executing a big expansion in Dallas-Fort Worth with five locations set to open in 2019.
The Biscuit Bar is a fast-casual concept with a menu centered around biscuits, founded by husband-and-wife Jake and Janie Burkett. They opened their first restaurant in Plano, followed by a second location near SMU in May.
The Biscuit Bar is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner seven days a week, offering biscuits, tots, and beer on tap.
The menu features both savory and sweet biscuit sandwiches made in house; tots, which can be customized; plus a bar with cocktails, local beer, cold brew coffee, and kombucha, all offered on tap.
According to a release, the couple drew comfort from friends' meals that included biscuits, following the death of one of their newborn twins in 2016. They created a do-it-yourself biscuit bar, and were inspired to do a restaurant with that theme.
Here are the details on the upcoming locations:
Deep Ellum. The Biscuit Bar will open at The Epic, the mixed-use project at 2550 Pacific Ave. combining office, residential, and hotel. This location will sport an industrial design and interior, with late-night hours to address the late-night neighborhood.
The Stockyards. The Biscuit Bar is headed west to Fort Worth's National Historic District, the Fort Worth Stockyards, where it will be a tenant at the Mule Alley redevelopment project at 122 E. Exchange Ave. This location will be rustic and will "keep it dusty," the release says.
Arlington. The chain has leased a 3,000-square-foot space at Champions Park, Arlington’s newest entertainment district overlooking AT&T Stadium and Globe Life Park. It will feature a two-story exterior patio, a multitude of TVs, happy hour, and reverse happy hour.
Coppell. They'll do a location at the intersection of Sandy Lake and Denton Tap, with an all-weather patio system that can be used throughout the year.
Abilene. They're also opening a location in Abilene at Allen Ridge, the city's first multiuse lifestyle center that's part of a joint venture with Abilene Christian University.
