In Two More Weeks Dallas Will Have One Less Chicken-fried Steak
Cafe Brazil announced the closure of their McKinney location at the end of the month. They were unable to negotiate a lease renewal with their landlord and decided to permanently close their doors instead. The restaurant has been serving up chicken fried steak and eggs, migas, pancakes and other breakfast food things for the past seven years.
Brant Wood bought the chain back in 2004 when it had six restaurants, with a goal of doubling that number in five years. They made it to 11, but the recent closure knocks them back to 10 remaining locations. Wood hopes to reopen the store in a new building soon. The McKinney location will serve its last sauce soaked crepes Sunday, July 29.
