Corky's BBQ, a Memphis-based chain, is looking to TX for expansion. A franchisee wants to open as many as 17 locations in Houston and Dallas. The article is not specific on how many of those will be coming to Dallas, nor when.

I'm not a vegetarian, but I sure would appreciate more non-meat meal options.

Teresa over at CultureMap made a pretty big regional list of prospective openings or just-opened places that I'm sure is evolving every day. Probably a difficult list to maintain as well as make sure all are even included:

Wow, that's a pretty helpful list. It's always hard to keep up with all the new restaurants opening up in the area. Here's another one to add to the list:

cool new restaurant that has piqued the interest of its East Dallas neighborhood is ready to throw open the doors. Called Local Traveler, it's an upscale-casual restaurant serving dinner seven nights a week, that'll be both bicycle-friendly and chef-driven.

LiftOff Coffee & Tea is a new venture opening here inside several Walmart stores. There are counters open in Garland and Mansfield now, with more to come in Bedford, Carrollton, Gainesville, and Rockwall. LiftOff's coffee is draft-style -- no espresso machines. The coffee starts out as roasted beans, but before the store level it is processed as an extract; when a barista starts a customer's order, the extract is accessed by way of taps (similar to beer taps). As with other previous restaurant concepts introduced by other companies, LiftOff chose the DFW area to see how customers would like the product, before spreading it elsewhere. Should be interesting to see how this coffee product is compared to the traditional process most customers are familiar with.
