Hey, Bud! I thought a Hopdoddy Burger Bar was supposed to open in Glade Parks. What do you know?
— Tired of the traffic
Yep. A Hopdoddy is booked to open in late April in that Euless center, followed by yet another location in Southlake Town Square. Glade Parks also expects an Imperial Hibachi restaurant and later, a Thirsty Lion Gastropub.
Hey, Bud! What's the deal with Smashburger closing on North Tarrant Parkway?
Never miss a local story.
— @StevensonFWST on Twitter
Most of the locations of Colorado-based Smashburger around here had already gone buns up. It was a good burger chain, but not as good as the “better burger” concepts like Victory Burger. Some Smashburger locations were converted to The Catch, an East Texas seafood restaurant. The region's first Smashburger remains open at 5005 S. Cooper St., Arlington, along with Mansfield and Southlake locations.
Hey, Bud! Did that OM Indian Grill ever get open?
— Southlake diner
The elaborate OM Indian Grill took months longer than expected, but it's open and busy at 2001 W. Southlake Blvd. The Tukkem family offers dine-in or delivery, giving Southlake an Indian restaurant on the west edge to compare with the excellent Mughlai on the east edge.
Hey, Bud! I thought Herencia was supposed to replace Mi Chula's. I don't see anything happening.
— Another Southlake diner
Me neither. Mi Chula's was supposed to be retooled as a different concept. Nobody at Herencia responded to Facebook messages or calls.
