Houstonians who have relocated to Dallas, a little taste of H-town is coming. And based on the lines flowing out of every brunch spot in town on the weekends, their doors are opening not a moment too soon.

The Toasted Yolk will open its first DFW location in Highland Village at 3020 Justin Road on Monday, April 25. Once opened, diners will be able to grab brunch (or breakfast or lunch) seven days a week, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Texans on the other end of I-45 already know that the Toasted Yolk’s churro doughnuts and cute little Arnold breakfast sandwiches are a delight, as is the show-stopping presentation of their take on shrimp and grits. The chain also offers “power bowls,” with a kale and quinoa base for a lighter brunch.

The Toasted Yolk DFW location may be the first, but it’s not the last — a major expansion into the area is imminent. New Toasted Yolks are coming to Frisco, McKinney, Addison, North Dallas, Southlake, Plano, and Prosper at dates that are to be announced.

If the look and sound of meats and sauces between English muffins isn’t enough to temp you, the Toasted Yolk are drumming up business for their first day in Dallas with some incentives for savvy diners. And you don’t have to be an early bird to collect.

It will give away free breakfast for a year to three customers in line on their opening day, while the first 25 customers will get a $25 gift certificate. And everyone who drops in on that day can expect a complimentary serving of churro donuts and partake of a $3 mimosa special.
