Buttons Restaurant to Open Addison Location

Anybody been to Buttons Restaurant in Fort Worth? Somebody told me they do a mean chicken and waffles but I haven’t tried them. Now I won’t have to wait long to get a taste—in September they are opening an Addison location of the “upscale southern-chic restaurant and live music venue” in the old Sambuca space.

    YAY! That is an awesome restaurant from my home town. Very excited that I no longer have to drive to FW to partake.

    I had the chicken and waffles at Ovation, Keith Hicks’ previous restaurant in Fort Worth, and can vouch for its deliciousness. At Buttons, the mac and cheese and the fried green tomatoes are also quite good. Only one visit to each restaurant, but I drive by Buttons all the time and the lot is usually full. Popular place.
