Fans of Sweetgreen in Dallas will finally be able to get their hands on an order of Guacamole Greens this month. The beloved chain serving salads and hearty grain bowls is opening up its long-awaited first Dallas location next week. Find Sweetgreen in Uptown’s West Village at 3636 McKinney Avenue, where the doors will open on Tuesday, November 23.
Sweetgreen is known for its salads like a kale Caesar with roasted chicken and rice bowls like the mushroom-forward Shroomami. The Dallas outpost will include an exclusive menu item called the “Texas Garlic Chili Shrimp Bowl,” combining shredded kale and cabbage with Cajun shrimp and warm wild rice, and sprinkled with toppings like apples and raw pecans and a douse of nuoc cham dressing.
Opening promos include free delivery for in-app purchases during the first two weeks, and for every meal sold on Monday, November 29, Sweetgreen will donate a meal to the charity organization Brighter Bites.
