At new restaurant SushiFork in Dallas, their motto is "you pick, we roll." It's a build-your-own sushi roll place located on SMU Boulevard, near popular college hangouts Torchy's Tacos, Twisted Root Burger Co. and Barley House.

SushiFork has been open since early May, but to celebrate its grand opening June 8 and 9, the restaurant is giving away free food. (Are you listening, college kids?) Friday, June 8, it's free California rolls; Saturday, June 9 it's the Hot Mess Roll -- krab, cream cheese and jalapeno, tempura fried. The freebies are good for one roll per person, per day.

Love raw fish? This one Dallas street is the hot spot for poke shops

This SushiFork is Dallas' first, but a press release says it's "the first of many" in North Texas. "Franchising was part of our plan from the beginning," says chef Greg Bossler in a statement. The company hails from Tulsa. 

If someone in your group doesn't eat sushi, SushiFork also sells a chicken salad, chicken wrap and kimchee fries, among other non-seafood options.

If you're a fan of poke, SushiFork has some similar flair with its build-your-own options. Also like some poke restaurants, SushiFork sells "sushi burritos," which are basically larger sushi rolls stuffed with ingredients like tuna, salmon, avocado, jalapeno and spicy mayo.

SushiFork is named for the utensil its founders created that has chopsticks on one end, a fork on the other. (See it below.)
