Since opening, Sugarbacon Proper Kitchen has been one of the more exciting focal points of McKinney’s growing culinary scene. Chef Jon Thompson has earned rave reviews from critics and diners alike for his Texas-inspired cuisine, and soon, you won’t have to drive twenty miles north to enjoy it.

Announced today, Sugarbacon  will open a second location at 6400 Gaston Avenue in the Lakewood area of Dallas. The restaurant will occupy the space that was formerly home to Dixie House, the recently-shuttered comfort food restaurant that was practically forced out of its location by the property owner.

"Lakewood could not be a better perfect fit for us. We value being involved and supporting our neighborhood like the residents do here. It will be several months before we open the doors, but we are humbled by the neighbors who have warmly welcomed us already," said Sugarbacon co-owner Johnny Carros. "We hope to be a neighborhood destination, just like our current restaurant right off the square in McKinney, Texas."

Carros and chef-partner Thompson expect that Sugarbacon’s second outpost will debut in "late summer or early fall" of 2016.
