If you’re dreaming of a burger and you love classic cars, Ford’s Garage has opened its first Texas outpost in Plano (3904 Dallas Parkway) — the first of many, a rep told Eater Dallas in an email. In addition to some pretty yummy looking burgers, the chain has an agreement with Ford Motors that lets them use that blue oval you’re so used to seeing on the truck following you too closely up 75. The exterior and interior are designed to mimic a 1920’s service station, and there’s loads of memorabilia to check out. “It’s not pretentious. It’s come-as-you-are,” says co-owner Brian Judd.

And now, pizza

Beloved Dallas favorite Cane Rosso expands into another location in North Dallas. The spot in Hillcrest Village (6959 Arapaho Rd.) makes seven locations for the pizzeria. This location features a sprawling patio (and a “bonus” patio on the side of the building), family-friendly vibes, and the Neapolitan pizzas it is known for. Plus, a walk-up window for to-go orders. In a press release, Cane Rosso founder/owner Jay Jerrier shared that the restaurant has been hard at work getting this location together for a while, and that it was chosen to meet the needs of locals from Richardson, South Plano, North Dallas, and Addison.

Bruncheon? Meet us in Richardson

CityLine just got a lot more brunchable. Brunchen has opened a spot to satisfy your brunch-y cravings seven days a week (1551 E Renner Rd.) in Richardson. In a press release, the chain shared that it offers breakfast, brunch, and lunch with a signature dish of pineapple upside down pancakes. Enjoy them on the spot’s nice, big patio when you get the hankering for brunch.

If you’re thinking of Mexican food

And finally, Hugo’s Invitados slides into the space in the West Village (3699 McKinney Ave.) formerly occupied by Mi Coccina, which moved to Uptown. CultureMap Dallas reports it’s their first spot in Dallas proper. The menu features “all-natural Mexican-influenced cuisine and organic cocktails.”
