Denver dispatches newest fried chicken sandwich restaurant to Frisco
A fried chicken sandwich restaurant from Denver is swooping down on Dallas-Fort Worth: Birdcall, which specializes in chicken sandwiches and salads, has opened a location in Frisco at 5350 Preston Rd. in Preston Lebanon Crossing, taking over a former Taco Cabana in front of a Sprouts and Hobby Lobby.
According to a release, the restaurant opened on July 10.
This makes the second Birdcall in the DFW area: The first opened in 2022 in Carrollton, also in a former Taco Cabana space.
Birdcall debuted in 2016 in the historic Five Points neighborhood of Denver, and has since grown to 10 locations in Colorado, Arizona, and Texas. More openings planned for these three key markets including Richardson and Dallas; wonder if they'll be in former Taco Cabanas as well?
Birdcall does chicken sandwiches on "artisan buns" from Signature Baking Company, plus chicken tenders, salads, tater tots, gluten-free and dairy-free chicken nuggets, and milkshakes with an option to make them boozy.
Birdcall caters to gluten-free diners with a wide range of options, and there's an exciting plant-based Meati sandwich, made from mushroom root protein.
Kids meals include chicken tenders or gluten-free and dairy-free chicken nuggets with fries, tater tots, or fruit, and a "fun swag item."
A bar program offers house-made cocktails on tap, such as a spicy cucumber margarita, a frozen house margarita, and draft beer inncluding locals such as Manhattan Project Beer Co. IPA. These make up for some of the disappointment that goes with the loss of Taco Cabana, which had its own amazing frozen cocktails.
Proprietary technology-driven kiosks empower guests to take control of the ordering process, tracking the progress of their meal on digital displays throughout the dining area and "conveniently" collecting their orders from 11 meal cubbies.
The dining room includes free-to-play arcade games like NBA Jam and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. The Frisco location will also showcase mural by Jaime and Pedro of The Worst Crew.
