Huckleberry's bountiful breakfasts with Cajun twist to debut in Keller
There's big breakfast news for residents of Keller and beyond: Huckleberry's, a breakfast-and-lunch chain based in California, is opening a location in Keller at 711 Keller Pkwy., in a former location of Dickey's Barbecue Pit.
According to a post from the city of Keller, the bodacious new breakfast spot will open in June. There are also plans to open a location in Sachse, later in 2023.
Billed as "Southern cookin' with a California twist," Huckleberry's takes a Cajun spin on breakfast. Signatures include stuffed French toast and a category called "skillet hotties" featuring eggs topped with Cajun ingredients such as Andouille sausage and shrimp.
Other favorites include Creole catfish, chicken-fried steak, shrimp po' boys, and fried green tomatoes.
Too bad they're not already open because their Mardi Gras beignet sitting on vanilla cream and topped with fresh fruit would surely have made our list of Mardi Gras treats.
Lunch includes items like the spicy Bayou chicken sandwich as well as a California chicken sandwich.
They deploy a Southern-themed atmosphere with a log cabin exterior (not unlike Black Bear Diner, a similar concept, also based in California) and river rock pillared patios. The interior features weeping willow trees, firefly pinpoint lights, and Zydeco music playing in the background.
Huckleberry's is part of Heritage Restaurant Brands, which also oversees Cool Hand Luke’s Steakhouse/Saloon and Perko’s Cafe Grill.
