Construction is well underway on more than a half-dozen businesses at a commercial development known as The Citadel.

Located at the southwest corner of I-35W and Heritage Trace Parkway, the development will run south along North Freeway and provide northeast Fort Worth residents with additional restaurant options, a coffee shop, oil change services and a barbershop.


Anticipated to open in early 2020, a LongHorn Steakhouse restaurant is nearing completion at 9369 North Freeway, Fort Worth. It will sit next to a Lupe Tortilla Mexican Restaurant at 9409 North Freeway, Fort Worth.

Two more restaurants—Dickey’s Barbecue Pit, at 9333 North Freeway, Fort Worth, and 151 Coffee, at 9301 North Freeway, Fort Worth—will anchor the development.

Having all filed permits with the city of Fort Worth, the restaurants will be joined by a Valvoline Instant Oil Change at 9313 North Freeway, Fort Worth, and a Floyd’s 99 Barbershop at 9437 North Freeway, Fort Worth.
