After a night on the town, few things sound better than bite to eat. Dallasites will soon be able to add late-night fried chicken to the list of beer sponge options.
Beginning Saturday, Sept. 3, Street's Fine Chicken will open a late-night window on the left side of its building to feed revelers select menu items, such as chicken tenders, chicken waffles and honey butter chicken biscuits.
The grab-and-go window opens at 1 a.m. on Saturdays and serves until 3 a.m. or while supplies last.
Opened in May, Street's Fine Chicken inhabits the space formerly home to the original Black Eyed Pea. It's owned and operated by Marco Street, son of Gene Street, who founded the Southern-style cooking chain in the '70s (and sold it in the '80s). Street's Fine Chicken is the latest venture for the entrepreneurial family with a long history of Dallas businesses, including Liberty Burger and YO Steakhouse.
The restaurant is far from the only place to find late-night eats in Dallas-Fort Worth, however — even if you're looking to buy from a window.
In Deep Ellum, Glazed Donut Works opens Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at 9 p.m. to serve sweet treats to passersby from a window in its storefront. It closes at 1 a.m. on Thursdays and 2 a.m. on weekend nights, and is famous for intricate flavors like the Elvis (bacon and banana) and grilled cheese doughnut sandwiches. Denton also has a late-night hot spot for doughnuts — Back Dough is a window that opens on the backside of Queenie's Steakhouse (on Austin Street) after hours. Stop by Friday and Saturday nights from 11 p.m. to 1 a.m. to check its rotating menu of sweet and savory flavors.
Some of our other favorite Dallas spots for late-night bites include Standard Pour, Cafe Brazil, Rocco's Uptown Pizza and Pasta, Buzzbrews, and Crushcraft Thai Street Eats, but you'll have to go inside the restaurant. Also of note: Velvet Taco in Dallas is open until 5 a.m. and serves breakfast.
