Members of the Greater Keller Chamber, city staff and elected officials helped recognize the city’s newest restaurant with a ribbon-cutting on Jan. 31.

The details

Huckleberry’s, a breakfast and lunch restaurant that offers "Southern cookin' with a California twist," according to a Facebook post, took over the former Dickey’s Barbeque Pit location.

According to the restaurant’s website, menu items include:
  • Waffles
  • Stuffed French toast
  • Signature omelets
The restaurant also offers a variety of lunch options, such as burgers, sandwiches, gumbo, chicken and catfish entrees.

A closer look

Josh Calvert, the owner of multiple Huckleberry’s who was responsible for bringing the first Huckleberry’s restaurant to Texas and locating it in Keller, said the restaurant officially opened Jan. 26.

Calvert has worked in restaurants since he was 16 years old. He said he started as a busboy and then worked his way up through the ranks and became a general manager with another company before becoming a Huckleberry’s franchisee.

Calvert said he moved to Keller in 2011 and it’s the only place he’s ever lived that truly felt like home.

“I love Keller, and I love Huckleberry’s,” Calvert said. “I think we can do a lot of good things together.”

What they’re saying

Rachel Reynolds, communication and public engagement manager for the city of Keller, said she’s seen a trend over the past few years of more breakfast, brunch and lunch restaurants moving into the city, which has given residents and visitors more options.

Shannon Dubberly, council member for Place 1, said council and the mayor are extremely excited about restaurants like Huckleberry’s coming to the city.

“We don’t want to bring just any restaurant [to Keller],” Dubberly said. “We’re really focused on experiential restaurants.”
