Rodeo Goat Ice House just expanded its burgers and beer to Plano for its fourth Texas location.
The recent addition from the guys behind Meddlesome Moth, Mudhen Meat and Greens, LARK on the Park, and Flying Saucer Draught Emporium just debuted at 641 Powell Lane (near Plano Parkway and Alma). It’s located inside the new Heritage Creekside development situated at the intersection of President George Bush Turnpike and US 75.
The concept, which began in Fort Worth in 2012 from restaurateurs Shannon Wynne, Keith Schlabs, and Larry Richardson, is known for grass-fed beef burgers with inventive toppings like the Chaca Oaxaca with beef and chorizo, avocado, pico de gallo, fried egg, queso fresco and Tabasco mayo, or the Olivia Darling with kalamata olive tapenade, shaved cucumber, garlic & herb boursin, and charred tomato aioli. Ever tried grilled peaches on a burger? The Sugar Burger has those plus candied bacon and caramelized onions, arugula, and jalapeño jam. There’s more than 20 burger offerings on the menu in addition to a handful of options named for local personalities like oil tycoon H.L. Hunt and “Voice of the Cowboys” Brad Sham.
The drinks menu puts a premium on Texas draft beer and quirky booze-infused mashups like the “Fainting Goat” with Revolver Blood and Honey, vodka, and orange juice and the “Moontang” with Firefly Moonshine, Tang and “other things,” according to a menu. For dessert, diners can snag fried pecan pie, shakes, floats, and Rodeo Goat’s infamous “goat balls” — no, not those goat balls, these are fried balls of brie served with blackberry compote.
Rodeo Goat has even more plans to expand in DFW with a forthcoming lakefront location in Irving’s Cypress Waters. Its new Plano location is currently open and operating Sunday through Thursday 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to midnight.
