Start Restaurant Hopes to Open Second Location in Oak Lawn

Erin McKool, co-owner of Start Restaurant, is planning to open a second location of Start, the healthy fast food restaurant she opened on Greenville Avenue in August 2012. She’s found a location (4023 Lemmon Avenue between Knight and Throckmorton) which is now a vacant lot just beyond My Fit Foods (the old car has been demolished). McKool is building from the ground up and has filed for a special use permit. She’s moving forward with design work to submit to the city. If all goes well, McKool plans to open next summer (2014).

    I used to live right across the street from that location (the strangest thing: that car wash was always packed on Thanksgiving). I would consider moving back to be across from Start.

    Wow! Thanks for the support Knightengale! There’s still a lot of prep involved…but we hope to serve “Real Food Fast” there soon! Stay tuned!

    Was hoping for something further North! 🙁 We love Start but hate driving from Far North Dallas…too bad it’s not going close to the new Whole Foods in Addison.

    Man I love that place I just never get to go because I’m near the high 5 and it’s too far with 75 traffic. 🙁 Come anywhere in the north Dallas area?
