The Knox/Henderson area has been known for great restaurants from The Porch to Victor Tangos on the Henderson side and Villa-O and Ziziki’s on the Knox side. If you’ve recently taken a drive down Henderson Avenue you’ve probably noticed a new addition — Lemon Bar and Grill.
The name should be familiar because the restaurant isn’t foreign to the Dallas area.
The restaurant opened in 2009 in Uptown’s West Village, but recently moved to a new location off Henderson Avenue.
The restaurant also expanded to a second location in Frisco located near Main Street and Dallas North Tollway.
“We moved to Henderson to be closer to SMU and our desired customer base,” Bill Hutchinson, the owner of the Henderson location, said.
With the location comes a new menu, which will be released next week.
The menu will feature slow cooked pork ribs, poached eggs on spinach and cheese grits and Lemon Bar’s famous brunch chicken and waffles, said Hutchinson.
In addition to the regular menu, Lemon Bar also offers brunch on the weekends. The PB&J French toast, which is topped with strawberries, bananas and caramel sauce, is absolutely mouth-watering.
For bacon lovers, the B.E.T.A sandwich, made with bacon, over medium egg, tomato, avocado and mayo on sourdough bread, is a must try.
With the prices ranging from $5 to $14 there is always something on the menu that everyone can try and afford.
Lemon Bar also offers a happy hour featuring a $5 menu, $3 wells, $3 house wine and $3 domestic bottles Monday through Friday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m.
On Friday and Saturday nights, Henderson Lemon Bar has a DJ in the Citrus Lounge for those who want to stay out, dance and have some fun.
Like the Henderson location, the Frisco location also has live music each week with a special performance by a Beatles cover band on March 22.
According to Hutchinson, Henderson Lemon Bar will be adding local beers from microbreweries to their tap selection.
The restaurant also plans to bring live music to their patio for St. Patrick’s Day.
Whether you’re in the Knox/Henderson area of food, live music or clubbing, Lemon Bar has it all.
