The North Dallas location of Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House has marked its calendar with a date for its final day of operation: August 19. It will be closed thereafter, but its new location will open in Uptown Dallas in September. Steak is on the move.

In a statement, Del Frisco's Restaurant Group CEO Mark Mednansky thanked customers for their patronage over the last 23 years. "We treasured each guest at Del Frisco’s Spring Valley," he said.

Del Frisco's was founded by Dale Wamstad in the late 1980s and had three locations around Dallas: Lemmon Avenue, Belt Line in Addison, and Spring Valley Road, which opened in June 1993. If you've never made it, you still have a few weeks.

The company is now Del Frisco's Restaurant Group, based in Southlake, with a collection of more than 40 restaurants across the country, including Del Frisco's Grille, Del Frisco's Double Eagle Steak House, and Sullivan's Steakhouse.

Even though it's about to close, the restaurant will participate in KRLD Restaurant Week and preview weekend, August 12-19. This will serve as a last opportunity to enjoy a favorite meal or visit a favorite member of the waitstaff at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House Spring Valley prior to the opening of the new location.

The new location will be a two-story spot at the new McKinney & Olive high-rise in Uptown.

If you haven't been, Del Frisco's serves steak and seafood with an extensive wine list and high level of service that reminds diners that they're the boss.

To mark the occasion of its move, the restaurant tallied up what it has served: more than 70,000 VIP cocktails, 73,000 bone-in rib-eyes, 130,000 crab cakes, and close to half a million 8-ounce filets.
