Fort Worth's loss is Mansfield's gain: Hoffbrau Steak & Grill House, the small Dallas-based steakhouse chain, is opening a location in Mansfield, on what was previously farmland across from Mansfield ISD's Vernon Newsom Stadium.
The restaurant will be located at 1101 N. Holland Rd. and will comprise 8,000 square feet, which will include a 6,000 square-foot restaurant building plus a 2,000-square-foot air-conditioned patio and a parking lot with 100-plus spaces.
It'll feature party rooms to accommodate groups of all sizes for private events and business meetings, and an expanded bar with a happy hour.
Aron Fogiel, who owns and operates Hoffbrau Steak & Grill House with his family, says in a statement that this will be the largest Hoffbrau ever built. They currently have locations in Amarillo, Granbury, Haltom City, and Benbrook, which they opened in 2019.
They closed another longtime location in Dallas' West End in 2016, which had been there for 23 years.
"We are family-owned and operated restaurants founded in 1978 that serve quality steaks, chicken, seafood and burgers, cold beer, famous margaritas and friendly smiles," Fogiel says. "Our family is excited for our expanded indoor/outdoor patio-bar and dining, and to welcome guests from Mansfield and its surrounding areas."
Their menu includes steaks as well as chicken-fried steaks, smoked sirloin, fried catfish, burgers, chicken tenders, and Dr Pepper BBQ chicken. Entree prices are $15 to $30. They have three salads, a bunch of sides, and starters such as fried pickles, candied bacon, and jalapeno poppers (which they call Texas Pesos).
Construction on the Mansfield restaurant is expected to begin in early 2022 and is projected to take 10-12 months to complete. The restaurant is projected to open in early 2023.
The Mansfield Economic Development Corporation worked with the Hoffbrau team to bring it to the city, says Richard Nevins, Director of Economic Development, in a statement.
"Hoffbrau has a long history of pleasing its patrons with high-quality food in a family-friendly environment, and I am sure Mansfield residents will soon make Hoffbrau a local favorite," Nevins says.
