Considering Dallas’ proclivity for massive burgers and slabs of barbecued ribs, it’s no surprise that health-focused chains are looking to the Big D to provide sustenance on those days when we actually eat vegetables. Now, a Chicago-based eatery is getting in on the veggie parade.
Announced via release, Doc B’s Fresh Kitchen will make its DFW debut next year. The rapidly-growing chain got its start in Chicago back in 2013, and has since expanded to include outposts in Florida. Doc B’s will open one location in Dallas (at McKinney and Olive) and is planning another for The Shops at Clearfork in Fort Worth.
As far as the food is concerned, the menu will focus on seasonally-appropriate sandwiches, burgers, and salads, and the chain’s signature “Wok Out” bowls. Beer, wine, and spirits will also be on offer, which means you’ll be able to have a few cocktails while enjoying your post-workout salad.
The Dallas location will bring a massive wrap-around patio with seating for 75, along with an “architecturally-designed mezzanine” that will give diners a view of McKinney Avenue. In Fort Worth, Doc B’s will offer an equally impressive, 2,500 square-foot outdoor space with fire pits and plenty of Adirondack chairs for lounging.
Doc B’s will open the Dallas location first, tentatively planned for Spring 2017. Fort Worth will follow at some point in Fall of next year.
