At long last, international Japanese barbecue chain Gyu-Kaku has arrived in Dallas. The grilled meat empire quietly debuted its second Texas location in Addison last week near Belt Line Road and Montfort Drive.
As CultureMap reported last spring, the restaurant seats around 136 diners and features a 525-square-patio. Gyu-Kaku specializes in yakiniku-style dining, in which customers order and cook their own seasoned raw meats over a communal grill. In addition to individual meat plates (served without sides), the restaurant offers several sharable barbecue meals ranging from $55 to $75 and an assortment of tapas-style appetizers, noodles, and salads.
Gyu-Kaku is the latest Japanese barbecue eatery to land in Dallas. Earlier this fall, the area welcomed Niwa Japanese BBQ in Deep Ellum. As that eatery’s owner Jimmy Niwa put it, the yakiniku-style a la carte dining experience “allows the customer to try a dish that they normally wouldn't want to order as their [only entree] since they will have multiple other dishes or will be sharing with friends anyways.”
