OAK’D opened in Dallas’s Old Town Shopping Center on Greenville Avenue in November 2020, and ever since it’s served some of the best barbecue in town. Led by Chef Michael Lane, the menu features slow-smoked meats sourced from local ranches, plus fresh sides and scratch-made desserts. OAK’D will bring that same food and commitment to quality to Addison, as it opens a new location at 4525 Belt Line Road on May 22.
The Addison location is located in the former Chamberlain’s Fish Market Grill, which closed in 2020 after operating for two decades. The space is nearly 7,000 square feet, with the capacity to host 190 guests across the dining room, indoor/outdoor bar and two patios, so there’s plenty of room to spread out. There’s also an event space that can fit another 50 people.
The restaurant has been designed with rustic steel and brick finishings that exude Texas flair. There is also a family-friendly gaming area featuring foosball, air hockey, basketball, shuffleboard, skee-ball, and other fun diversions that are free to play for all customers.
The menu will be stocked with menu items from the original Greenville Avenue location, including wagyu brisket and sausage, wagyu beef ribs, Duroc pork spare ribs and smoked turkey, plus sandwiches, burgers, salads and house made sides, like apple cider coleslaw, red skin potato salad, roasted cauliflower, barbecue beans and three cheese mac. The OAK’D Bake Shop includes a rotating supply of scratch desserts, like bread pudding, chocolate chip cookies and fresh-baked pies. But the Addison location will offer a new section of Mexicue items that merge Texas barbecue with Tex-Mex — think tamales, tacos, tostadas, quesadillas and nachos with your choice of brisket, pork or chicken. The bar, which offers happy hour from 4-7 pm daily, is outfitted with more tap handles, so guests can pair a large variety of local craft beers with their meals.
“We’ve been working hard to get our new location ready for its debut, and we’re so excited to share it with our new neighbors in Addison and the surrounding area,” says OAK’D owner Michael Lane in a statement. “With our comfortable dining room, delicious menu and full bar, plus the new gaming area and outdoor spaces, we want to become Addison’s new gathering place, whether guests are stopping in for a casual dinner or a fun day out with their families.”
